I imagine that whoever you are, you have a story to tell about the journey that has led you here. It may be a story about loss, or betrayal, or confusion, or a feeling of being stuck. Perhaps it is a story about a great longing that lives in you, a sense that it is possible to live with more meaning, more delight, more authenticity, more connection. Therapy is work that asks a great deal from us, but it also holds enormous potential for meaningful change: to awaken to your own life, to make strides toward repairing broken bonds, and to imagine new possibilities and new ways of being, for yourself and for your relationships.

I believe that everyone can explore internally and foster potential to create a brighter outlook of life. Through open-minded and non-judgmental collaboration, I work with many individuals dealing with interpersonal family dynamic issues, career concerns, depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, parenting, and body image issues. Over 10 years of experience, I assist children, adults, families, and couples exploring self-understanding, identifying emotional and behavioral patterns, develop new perspectives and emotion and stress management skills, making meaningful interpersonal connections, and making career decisions.

You may be considering therapy because you are feeling unbalanced, untethered & unanchored due to all that you're carrying. Maybe you are finding your breaths to be more shallow lately. Perhaps your brain feels foggy & bogged down. You may be angry, enraged & worn down by oppressive, unjust, racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, xenophobic, classist & ableist systems. All of this may be taking a toll on how you are able to show up as your true, authentic self. You may be a parent who is feeling overwhelmed by all the demands placed upon you, & you may be feeling like no matter what you do it is never enough.

[I am not accepting new clients at this time]. My practice specializes in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for anxiety and mood disorders. I provide individual treatment for adults and late adolescents. My goal is to provide individualized, compassionate, effective, evidence-based treatment for individuals with anxiety and mood disorders. My approach has its grounding in CBT but when appropriate I also use mindfulness techniques, components of Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT), and Schema Therapy to enhance the treatment and support the client's movement toward accomplishing treatment goals.

Welcome! Looking for a therapist can be daunting. I applaud you for taking steps to help yourself. My clients typically come to me because they are suffering from high levels of stress or anxiety. They feel overwhelmed and panicky, are not able to stop worrying, or feel irritable and angry. Often they are puzzled by the intensity of their own emotional responses and they blame themselves for “overreacting”. Sounds familiar? There is nothing wrong with you. Your past memories, likely traumatic ones, may be intensifying your responses.

I believe that every individual has the ability to make change, heal and grow. I will create a supportive environment where you will be heard, new skills can be learned and also practiced. My treatment methods are grounded in evidence-based models, while allowing for the flexibility to individualize to best meet your needs. I want to make therapy work for you and know that no approach is perfect for everyone. I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), exposure, Mindfulness techniques and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Together we will decide what works for you.

“Just because no one else can heal or do your inner work for you doesn’t mean you need to do it alone.” - Lisa Olivera. Change isn’t easy—I don’t need to tell you that. You’ve been trying to do this on your own for a while now. You may feel stuck, wondering how you can get out of your self-defeating patterns, move forward from trauma or grief, or gain more self-confidence to reach your goals. If you face systemic oppression due to being BIPOC, LGBTQ, an immigrant, or disabled, you have probably faced even more obstacles to your healing, including in the therapy room. I’m here to help with culturally informed, compassionate care.

I love to work with supervisees and mentees (supervision of supervision) as we grow, laugh, and learn together. The process of deepening knowledge, experience, and wisdom can be rewarding for both the supervisor and supervisee. I approach supervision/mentorship from a structural supervision perspective as I believe we all thrive with the right balance of structure and support. I use a good amount of humor and curiosity in my approach, as I believe the elements of fun, delight and joy are important parts of the professional growth process. If we work together, you will be challenged and you will be uplifted.

I work with adult individuals seeking change. It is my belief that when a person seeks to change their life, growth is possible. Our past experiences can inform the way we show up in our lives in the present moment. Sometimes past experiences can cause people to experience conflict in current relationships; struggle to communicate emotions effectively; trust that others will be able to meet their needs; utilize coping mechanisms that hinder versus help.

I will support you in your search for greater meaning, emotional awareness and empowerment in a world that can be stressful and isolating. We will begin a thoughtful exploration of how your past experiences and relationships impact you presently. Together we will uncover and co-create new meanings out of your experiences, these new understandings can give you the power to relate differently to yourself and others.

To quote Søren Kierkegaard, "The most common form of despair is not being who you are." Painful experiences can leave us feeling broken, small, disoriented, without words, stagnant and isolated. It can be hard to ask for help, but you might be relieved to know that psychotherapy is not about pinpointing or exploiting what's wrong with you. It is about becoming who you really are. We all need safe spaces to breathe, process emotion, move, find stillness, to feel seen, understood and to form language around what has happened to us; to find connection and to integrate our emotional, cognitive and physical experiences.

No one seeks therapy for the same reason. I do not know your story or why you are seeking, but I know it is not easy. Should you choose to work with me, my hope for you in our work together would be that you would find freedom from whatever binds you--whatever keeps you from joy, from peace, from living as fully as you have within you to live.
