Life is unpredictable and difficult at times. Things don’t always work out the way we planned or expected they would. When we find ourselves out of balance and upset; it can be helpful to talk about our thoughts and feelings with someone who will listen. In a safe space, it will be easier to consider what is working for you and what is not. I’d like to offer you that safe space and to help you by listening and discussing your situation and experience. I believe in the strength and resiliency of each individual. I know you possess the power to regain balance in your life and I’d like to help you do that.

Therapy does not make hard things easy, but it can make confusing things clearer. My hope is to work with my clients towards real change, greater flexibility, and honesty in the context of a compassionate relationship, all of which are necessary for healing and flourishing. I work with individuals who struggle with intense emotions, out of control behaviors, OCD, addiction, trauma, abuse, and suicidal/self-harm behaviors. I also work with religious or spiritual concerns. I work with people who experience conflict within themselves, with other people in their lives, or with their personal and collective histories.

Chances are you've been feeling symptoms of anxiety, depression, and/or ADHD. Life feels overwhelming, getting out of bed is hard, you feel fearful over seemingly small things, you can’t seem to focus, you constantly lose things, you feel out of control, and what’s even worse: all of these symptoms and feelings are negatively interfering with your quality of life. You want help, but finding a primary care provider or mental health professional seems overwhelming and waits are too long.

This means that in session we focus on the here and now, a gentle journey of self-awareness and self-discovery. I’m passionate about helping you find personal freedom, inner peace, empowerment, self-trust, and a life lived in choice. I incorporate art and drawing practices into sessions, as called. My practice is grounded in Buddhist philosophy, and I may pull from a variety of mindfulness-based modalities throughout a session.

My primary goal as a therapist is to create a safe, nonjudgmental space to help you process challenges and harness your strengths. With this foundation, I layer in creative, experiential strategies that access the root of current and historical obstacles. As a clinical social worker, I have focused my training on relationship dynamics (particularly within couples and families) and creative arts therapies. My multifaceted professional background as an actor, teacher, and entrepreneur has uniquely honed my understanding of complex human emotion, interpersonal relationships, and the role of the body in storing our personal histories.

I firmly believe in our ability to make change in our lives. For most of us, change occurs through a series of small imperfect steps and frustratingly, not always even moving in a forward direction. Change involves evaluating longstanding patterns and considering whether those patterns fit with the life you want for yourself today. Embarking upon this path requires being gentle with yourself at the start and throughout the process. Sometimes even this gentleness must be learned and practiced. Please note that I have a few openings in my practice at this time but they are exclusively between the hours of 10 am and 3 pm Mon-Thursday.

I provide psychotherapy to individuals and families to promote growth and empowerment through supportive listening, mindfulness, and examination of past experiences, allowing clients to cultivate insight and bring about lasting change. I use a collaborative and dynamic approach that incorporates multiple theoretical approaches and techniques to meet both individual and family needs and preferences. I believe that insight alone does not bring about change; rather, we must do something different to become something different. I offer compassion, humor, honesty, and straightforward feedback while I empower individuals and families to explore their own goals and work toward growth and healing.

The clients I work with often feel different in some way, either because of neurodivergence, trauma, giftedness, or intense anxiety. Simply put, they process the world differently. The parents I see are doing their best to support their children's self-regulation even as they manage their own confusion and fatigue. They are looking for a guide rather than endless parenting blogs. My young adult clients are looking for ways to manage self-criticism, anxiety, and perfectionism. Frequently, they are processing trauma, striving to develop a balanced sense of self, and learning how to navigate relationships.

My interests are in working with adults that have experienced trauma, grief and loss, religious trauma, family of origin issues, people diagnosed with ADHD, Autism, Anxiety, and Depression, as well as LGBTQIA+ people and people experiencing gender dysphoria and/or seeking gender affirming surgery. As a social worker, I believe it is important to name systemic oppressions, such as racism, misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, classism, capitalism and the ways they intersect in order to acknowledge the harm we continue to experience on a daily basis.
