If you are struggling with an issue in your life and you feel "stuck", you know how hard it can be to ask for help. You are a hardworking, intelligent person and others count on you. But sometimes it's hard to be yourself because of what you are carrying inside. Maybe it's an upsetting incident, a worry, or unwanted feelings. Have you thought, "I get what therapists say about my issues, but it doesn't change my pain or how I deal with things"? You are tired of "pushing things away." You are ready to try a different kind of therapy. And you want to work with someone experienced. If you have read this far, please give me a call!

Finding our way back to our whole self can be a difficult journey, one that asks us to connect with feelings not yet owned, wounds not yet processed, and longings not yet voiced. When our needs for comfort, validation, protection, and predictability are not met in our relationships, we can be vulnerable to feeling unworthy, unsafe, and that our needs are unimportant. The strategies we have for dealing with our unmet needs often show up in similar patterns for managing stress, distress, and disconnection. Some move towards others, hoping that if we fight loud, long, or hard enough, our pain and anger will eventually be acknowledged.

Connecting with yourself and others can be scary, especially when it has caused you pain in the past.
If you are feeling disconnected, helpless, or stuck, I can assist you in identifying and changing the patterns and ways of relating which might be holding you back. By prioritizing your sense of safety, welcoming heavy emotions, and guiding you to meet/heal unknown parts of yourself or your partner, you can gain freedom from the patterns in which you feel trapped. I work with individuals and couples, supporting them to understand the ways they manage stress through retreating inward and shutting down, or turning outwards for connection and validation. From there, I help clients to better understand who they are and what they need.

I support individuals and couples by using the science 0f attachment to make sense of important relationships. My role is to help you to organize your life experiences and emotional world so you can better understand your patterns and needs for connection and then find more satisfying ways to share who you are with the people you care about the most. I work to help you make sense of your emotions, especially the vulnerabilities, misunderstandings, protections, and hurts that underpin your experience and often drive your behavior or responses. This process shines a light on long-held patterns, unresolved pain , and fractured trust.

I also enjoy working with adults who have experienced trauma, struggle with boundaries or low self-worth, and live with chronic pain .
If your relationship experiences haven't been optimal training ground for feeling whole, loveable, and secure in the world, I can help you understand your experiences, heal unresolved pain , and explore new ways to relate to yourself and others. In the safe container of therapy, you can explore your emotions and relationship cycles, and find new ways to connect. We all have the ability to grow beyond old patterns and emotional pain when given a nurturing space. I help couples learn how each partner responds to relationship distress and find safer ways to communicate needs, respond to conflict, and deepen emotional intimacy.

I encourage the release of those restricting emotions to transcend the pain ; nourishing your growth into new perceptions, understanding and healing.
Change is hard. The emotions that arise can be painful to face and sometimes feel as if they keep us from moving forward. These changes are what I call the "difficult bumps" or "nodes" in life. I think of it this way: When the "nodes" of the cut stem of a plant are nourished with water they grow into roots. The stem transforms into a thriving plant, its roots anchoring it solidly to the ground. I help clients to recognize their "bumps" as an opportunity to transform pain into new roots of empowerment, self-worth, and self-appreciation.

Hypnosis is used as a tool for performance enhancement (public speaking, job interviewing, test taking);and habit disorders (smoking, weight management); as well as medical applications (IBS, chronic pain , and to relieve anxiety before surgery).
Do you worry and feel tense most days? Do you doubt and criticize yourself? Do these thoughts make you feel overwhelmed by life and hold you back from reaching your goals? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you are not alone. Anxiety and depression are prevalent in everyday life especially during times of economic uncertainty and overwhelming stress. I can help you identify and resolve your fears and concerns through cognitive-behavioral therapy and other therapeutic approaches. You will learn how to empower yourself by exploring the connection between your thoughts, mood and behavior.

Welcome. The most important aspect of psychotherapy is the relationship with the therapist. Working through conflicts or past pain happens through experiencing, not just through merely reading or thinking about things. Gaining self acceptance and discovering how to bring an open heart to your family or intimate relationships does not come simply from acquiring an insight, or from reading a "how to" book. It starts with the healing relationship... and the only way you will find out how comfortable you might feel with your therapist is to talk to them in person. My focus in treatment is on the relationship.
