It takes so much courage to search for a therapist and reach out for help. Just by looking at this website, you are already taking steps towards something better. You can stop automatically reacting to thoughts, feelings, and sensations in ways that seem to only make things worse, like shutting down or exploding. Together, we can make space for tough feelings and discover how to live with meaning, purpose, and intentional action. I specialize in treating mood disorders, chronic pain, health issues and SSRDs, stress management (including professional and/or parenting stress), and prolonged grief disorder.

"Sometimes the bravest and most important thing you can do is just show up," Brene Brown. Making the decision to go to therapy is difficult, finding the right therapist can be even more of a challenge. I believe therapy is a collaborative process that must occur in a safe and accepting space to facilitate change.

I believe that we are all made for relationship with one another. Relationships are where we learn about love, comfort, hope, courage, joy, and empathy. They are also where we unfortunately learn about betrayal, fear, rejection, abandonment, abuse, and pain. These experiences and connections with others shape us into who we are. They are also the place where real change and healing can happen. I hope to come alongside you as an empathetic and trustworthy listener to help you make sense of unhealthy patterns that have kept you stuck and to provide real hope, growth, and change in the context of healthy relationship.

Did you know that a majority of Americans experience a mental health crisis at some point in their life? We all face challenges in life that set us back and sometimes those challenges can push us towards negative thought cycles that prolong our suffering. I specialize in a strengths-based, person-centered approach using cognitive behavioral therapy that helps my clients learn to challenge their own automatic thought patterns in a way that frees them to create the future they desire rather than be a slave to automatic thinking. I believe in a collaborative approach to therapy where we work together as a team.

There is a gap between the way you wish life would be and the reality of life. Anxiety and Depression are just overwhelming and it makes it hard to connect to loved ones, get daily tasks done, and think clearly. You notice yourself feeling so disconnected. And you are finding it hard to have the drive to get things done. Where is the joy in life? You remember enjoying things but now everyday is just gray. You want to be able to feel like the Real You again! Not hidden by anxiety and depression.

Most conflict involves relationship: a relationship with ourselves, our parents, our children, our lovers, our bosses, our co-workers. This is the one area where education fails us. We inhabit an adult body with a child's knowledge of how to interact with the world and ourselves and that is where a therapist's knowledge can be beneficial. "Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it" (Rumi). I can help a client find and diminish those barriers.

Do you want a fresh outlook? Are you looking for a new perspective? Do you want change that offers realistic hope? I have been privileged over the past 20 plus years of helping people address change. We all want to avoid addressing personal change. In many ways it is like musical chairs: We cling as long as possible to the perceived "safe" place that we already know, refusing to loosen our grip until we feel sure another safe place awaits. Together we will work to establish attainable goals that are best suited for your life.

The search for a therapeutic relationship founded on trust, compassion and understanding driven by your needs, goals and dreams is one of the most important decisions you will make. It takes a tremendous amount of courage and strength, built on the foundation of hope to begin the journey of finding ourselves. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker I believe we all have a unique story to share with the world. Our knowledge of ourselves; spiritually,mentally and physically drives our choices and is the catalyst for change in that narrative.

My goal in therapy is to create a safe space where you can be honest and real. It takes great courage to seek help. To heal, grow and thrive people need a truly non-judgmental space in which to explore strengths, weaknesses, fears, past, present, and hopes for the future. I am real, kind, honest, and trustworthy. My therapy practice is rooted in an anti-oppressive, anti-racist, harm-reduction, trauma-informed, relational and person centered approach. I aim to create a safe space for clients to explore their identities and build self-efficacy.

I enjoy my work as a psychotherapist even more today then I did when I started over 20 years ago. There is so much power and insight that comes from a truly authentic relationship between therapist and client. You, the client, can then take what is learned in the safety of the therapeutic relationship out into the world full of Other relationships and feel equipped to navigate them in a way that is aligned with who you are. Whether it's your self as a mother, daughter, brother, or son, there is meaning to unfold in everything you do.
