I see the human person as made up of body, mind, and spirit, and each dimension affects the other, especially during times of crisis, stress, transition, and disharmony. Currently I am seeing clients who have been working at therapy for a while and have made significant progress in feeling focused and grounded in their life, but also feel there is something still missing, and are able to name spirituality as the area that needs attention.

Whether I am working as a psychodynamic psychotherapist or specifically as a Jungian Analyst I am always mindful of the power of the unconscious. It will exercise its might whether invited or not. I am best suited to treating clients who wish to or are compelled to journey into the dark to find meaning in their lives. I have found this process to be a combination of bringing unconscious material to the surface light in order to understand and make meaning of it, and tolerating and trusting some of what one cannot understand.

I work closely and collaboratively with individuals and couples to move them beyond old, repetitive and unhappy patterns that hinder growth and freedom. Change happens in a deeply personal way, and never without trepidation. Effective therapy is a mutual undertaking in which fears, anxieties and deeply held beliefs are discovered and shifted. Depressive feelings, anxiety, unhappy work or personal relationships are often the result of unknown roadblocks we erect to protect us at a cost. Therapy provides a private and safe venue for discovering the reasons why life can feel flat, meaningless or frightening and can be the catalyst for profound movement and growth.

I am currently accepting new clients! Have you ever avoided doing things you loved because you’re worried about what others think? Have you experienced confusion and prejudice because of your identity? Has it negatively impacted your sleep, eating habits, or relationships? Living authentically can come at a cost to those with marginalized identities; the stress, fatigue, and fear that come with interacting with non-affirming people can ultimately shrink your world. The stories we tell ourselves about ourselves can shape beliefs about the world and our place in it.

Navigate the challenges of life, relationships, and personal growth is a difficult process. Communication, building trust, and strengthening connection to yourself and your loved ones takes sustained effort and effective support. In our busy world the pressures of work, life, and family obligations can quickly take priority. Before you know it unaddressed resentments, unhealed traumas, or unmanage neurodivergences like ADHD can begin to cement discouraging patterns. Individuals or couples begin to believe they're broken and or incapable of change. When you find yourself there, it's time to reach out for the support you need.

Does your sleep feel frustrating or stressful, rather than peaceful and rejuvenating? Has your sleep deteriorated after a life transition, such as pregnancy, growing older, or another change? Perhaps you find yourself awake for long hours in the middle of the night, or are concerned about the long-term effects of poor sleep. I would love to help you develop a better relationship with your sleep. I enjoy helping people become curious about their sleep habits, and then using that curiosity to transform into better, more restorative sleep.

Female Therapists

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
