"I hope you are blessed with a heart like a wildflower. Strong enough to rise again after being trampled upon, tough enough to weather the worst of summer storms, and able to grow and flourish even in the most broken places." -Nikita Gill The impact of trauma, anxiety, or depression in your life can lead you to feel isolated, stuck, or disempowered. As a licensed counselor, I believe that no one should have to manage those feelings on their own. Through developing a strong therapeutic alliance, I assist my clients with identifying their goals for themselves and walk alongside them on their journey towards growth and healing.

I am a clinical psychologist with experience providing individual, couples, and family therapy in outpatient and inpatient settings.

I enjoy working with couples and families to help them find new ways of communicating with each other and their children. I provide comprehensive psychological assessments for children and adults using cognitive, achievement, and personality measures. I aim to make assessments a useful addendum to therapy, psychiatric care, and improved classroom and home functioning.

I focus on individual Trauma, Couples, and Family. With years of family and individual work I've developed a flexible ability to meet adult and teen needs from parenting, marital, and developmental trauma and transitions of life. My work is informed by an attachment approach where I seek to create safety with you to untie negative relational patterns and move into greater awareness and courage. To assist my clients with underlying issues of trauma, my training in AEDP, EMDR and somatic approaches are well suited. I also use Ketamine Assisted Therapy in my office to break through old, unconscious patterns.

Being a psychotherapist means being available to you in a way that is different to other forms of human relatedness. It means I listen to the painful events and relationships troubling you in your life and open a conversation about them between us. This conversation is private and confidential, yet allows for the most honest and accessible way to both explore and understand your reactions and feelings. Although the foundation of my knowledge lies in the psychoanalytic tradition, I incorporate contemporary knowledge and methods that have developed since Sigmund Freud's first discoveries at the end of the 19th century.

In a healing therapeutic relationship, you can discover the place inside that was always whole, safe, and protected and regain those parts that you may feel are lost or damaged. Whether you are facing issues of anxiety, overwhelming stress, depression, anger, trauma, grief, paralyzing fear, that feeling of being stuck, or some other difficulty, together we will mindfully navigate life's many challenges with kindness, respect, and compassionate courage.

As a counselor, I understand that trauma occurs at any age, in many different forms. It can be overt, in the case of physical abuse and death; ambiguous, in the form of divorce, break-ups, peer pressure, bullying and the impact of social media. It can also be entirely hidden from our consciousness. Counseling is a way to approach and connect with trauma in a safe place. It is a way to help yourself heal.
