I have helped clients through grief, job & family conflicts, transitions & stagnation.
We all get stuck. "Stuck" could mean: a miserable job; a tough relationship; or difficulty adjusting to life-changing news, and not knowing what to do next. Therapy is a great place to find help getting unstuck and regaining your life's momentum. I help my clients move on from stagnation and help them reach a place that they feel is healthy. Every experience is different and therapy is appropriately designed according to the client's concerns.

My hope is to help. Whether you are dealing with challenges as an individual, a couple, or a family , we will work together in creating the changes you seek. You may have a specific goal in mind, perhaps even a fairly good idea of how to get there, but maybe not - maybe you're only aware of what you don't want and what's not working. That in and of itself is a perfectly acceptable place to start!

As a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist , I specialize in issues affecting relationships and am most passionate about the healing of trauma.
Our most frustrating and painful patterns are often rooted in past experiences that continue to impact us, whether consciously or subconsciously. I strongly believe if you are feeling stuck, it’s not random and there is nothing wrong with you. Many clients have come to me because they find themselves unable to make significant changes despite past therapeutic work and education or they feel powerless in their life and/or relationships. I focus on creating an emotionally safe environment where we explore these experiences and behaviors with curiosity.

Relationships can be difficult, and the effect of relationship distress on you, your partner, and your family can be profound. I offer help for relational distress, specializing in couples counseling, and marriage and relationship therapy. My therapeutic work is guided by the idea that relational distress is couple specific, often presenting as a break-down in communication arising from difficulty in bringing one’s authentic self to the relationship. Addressing that difficulty can lead to a greater understanding of self, other and relationship, empowering partners to be in relationship in more positive, genuine, and satisfying ways.

I have hired a meditation coach with training in Internal Family Systems therapy who accepts a sliding scale fee.
As the somewhat relatable Bruce Springsteen once said, in therapy "you work to turn the ghosts that haunt you into ancestors who accompany you. That takes hard work and a lot of love, but it's the way we lessen the burdens our children have to carry." I consider my life's purpose to be to (try to) reduce suffering in the world by helping others heal emotional wounds and learn new ways of dealing with the inevitable difficulties of life. Through evidence-based and transformative therapies such as IFS and EMDR, I love helping people become more self-aware and compassionate towards themselves and those around them.

I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and enjoy using somatic therapy, IFS (Internal Family Systems), and other therapy modalities to address goals.
Therapy can be a transformative process. My hope is to bring compassion and curiosity into our work, and together, co-create a space that feels authentic, transparent, and just safe enough to explore past experiences of pain and trauma. When we gain insight into how our past influences our present, we open up our capacity for choice and step into new ways of being that align with our values. I am also a native Spanish speaker and offer therapy in both English and Spanish.

You have tried so many things to feel better about yourself but nothing is working long term. You feel frustrated, confused, and even overwhelmed. Your friends and family give you advice that doesn’t help and you’re left feeling like no one gets it. Life may even feel hopeless. You begin to ask yourself if something is fundamentally wrong with you. I get it. I’ve been there and so have many of my clients. As a therapist, I want to help you create a life where your friends and family are asking, “Wow, what are you doing differently? You seem so alive and engaged in life.”

I am passionate about helping those considering suicide or who need help with difficult thoughts, whether it is for oneself, friends, family , or romantic partners.
We are always in a perpetual state of being created and creating ourselves." ~ Daniel J. Siegel There are many who have come to believe feeling numb and disconnected, while incredibly lonely, is normal. Anxieties and fears can spiral into feelings of helplessness, and this is exceptionally heartbreaking when we see it in our children, watching them isolate themselves, seeing them suffer, and unsure how to help.

I strive help you feel comfortable bringing your identities, such as religion, gender, family of origin, sexual orientation, race, and cultural background into the room, because these pieces are crucial components of your story and your change.
Every struggle has a story behind it. Often, the telling of those stories can feel daunting and maybe even scary. Even reading this might inspire a twinge of nervousness in some, as the thought of discussing painful or challenging pieces of your life takes shape. That’s completely O.K. Whether it is Trauma, anxiety, depression, loss, or something else; there is more of your story to be told. In therapy I do my best to make our sessions a space where the telling of your story feels natural, safe, and valuable. It is through the telling and retelling of these issues that new ways of seeing, new feelings, and new insights can emerge.

I also draw upon family systems theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, Process Oriented Psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems, and others.
I love working with individuals who are asking, "What do i want to create in my life? What do I want to move away from?". Life transitions in work, relationships, health, and faith, come to everyone, with accompanying fear, anxiety, depression, PTSD, and uncertainty. I work with a combination of approaches to help people reduce stress and return to a sense of regulation and mastery in their lives. My specialty is Somatic Experiencing as i have found that talk alone is not enough, the body needs to be included in growth and healing.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
