My approach uses attachment-based & somatic experiences, including mindfulness and understanding the neuroscience behind anxiety, fear & anger.
Are you looking for something different when it comes to therapy? I believe therapy can be more relaxed & not always serious & "stuffy". My goal is for you to have an experience of comfort and encouragement while also working through difficult situations and feelings. We talk about your concerns but also about your strengths & looking at things from different perspectives. During these conversations, we can laugh about some things, have a cup of coffee/tea together and color a picture. I work hard to provide a positive, accepting and non-judgmental environment where you feel safe to talk about your reality and truth.

The most important relationship you have is with yourself. My goal is to support you in finding healing and wholeness by re-connecting you with who you really are at the core: before the trauma happened, before life changed unexpectedly, before the conditioning that made you feel less-than, underneath the lingering depression and anxiety. These are all roadblocks on your unique journey, and together we'll explore them so that you can move into your best life, with awareness and peace.

I view my clients as unique individuals. I help them identify their strengths and build on them to solve their core concerns. In my practice, bolstering a client's motivation for change is important. I provide accountability and support during the tough times--knowing that we all have challenges and choices in our lives. I am very well suited to working with LGBTQi persons and those with all levels of ability. I treat many concerns, however, I specialize in anxiety concerns and trauma (PTSD). I also work with those who struggle with Personality Disorders.

Life is ever-changing and evolving in manifold ways. We all go through life changes and unforeseen roadblocks that create imbalance within our minds. It is quite empowering to seek out help when our inner self wants to “talk” and respect that need. This is where I come in as a vessel of support to aide in your journey of knowing your inner self and what challenges or changes you might be going through. Therapy can be a rewarding experience when your inner world (feelings, thoughts, emotions) changes positively to reflect your outer world and relationships.

Tired of being labelled "the problem?" What is your life story? How can it be shaped going forward? Let's focus on those positive "sparkling moments" and make the complexity of the overall situation the main focus of attention in a safe, secure, and empathetic environment. I believe you are the best expert on who you are and where you should go. We will explore your past, present, and future, and orient you as a "person in the environment," rather than an isolated individual. We will work collaboratively and creatively to tap into your strengths and competencies.

Relationships are magical. They are also hard work. Just when you thought you'd found your person, the intimacy and joy gives way to new depths of disconnect and loneliness. Or perhaps you're a new parent, excited by the unique possibility of bonding as a family, only to discover overwhelm, even suffering. Trauma can create additional barriers to connection. Attachment issues and difficult childhood relationships can result in reenactments of past relationships and roles that are just plain exhausting. Sound familiar? Then its time for change.

I look forward to helping you to learn about yourself and how you can make effective changes in your own life. We will work collaboratively to meet your goals. This includes building self understanding to increase insight, with the purpose of using that new knowledge to take different actions and respond in new ways. My approach is compassionate, warm, geared towards action, and I’m kind of silly sometimes (when appropriate, of course).

My clients are adult individuals and couples who would like to have deeper relationships. They're experiencing life transitions, grief, or they've reached a point in their lives where the old strategies aren't working anymore and they want to create new patterns in their lives. They want to release old hurts, feel more ease and freedom in their spirits and bodies, understand themselves and their partners better, and be the best parents they can be.

I tend to be relaxed and calm, and am good at helping others to find a sense of calmness in their own lives. I understand that you are a person, not a set of symptoms. Because of this I will work hard to minimize the anxiety that you may have about coming to therapy. My aim is to build a collaborative, supportive relationship that will support you along your journey. I think of this work as sacred. I often find myself in awe that I get to walk with people so closely as they journey through life.

I also offer formal ADHD diagnostic testing for children and adults. My ADHD treatment emphasizes education on ADHD and strategies designed to manage symptoms. Challenges within relationships are also a focus, especially to strengthen relationships affected by ADHD.

Let’s talk about you. Your perspective about your life is valid and essential. Everyone needs someone on their side that will listen with an open heart and open mind. I work with people where they are. I use a strengths based perspective to help you advocate for yourself in your own life. Life happens. Hardships happen. Neurological differences, psychological and medical diagnoses are not a life sentence. Within each person is the incredible power to transform their own lives. Let’s work on those struggles to help you get what you want out of your life and find your own version of happiness.

We love to collaborate with clients to help them draw from their own expertise, build on their own positive values, discover their own skills, and use these new tools to work through conflicts and hardships. We are systems therapist. What that means is: we like to approach problems that people have within the context of social, political and cultural storylines that influence the way we view ourselves and our own personal stories. We use this same approach in family therapy to seek ways to change the way the family system works rather than trying to "fix" a specific family member.

Therapy is effective when the therapist is guiding the client down a path that the therapist has already successfully completed. My heightened emotional sensitivity to myself and the world surrounding me led me on a journey of self-discovery where I learned to resolve my personal losses and access my power and intuition. Through the lessons of my resolved cycles of suffering, I have found consistent access to my emotional maturity and intuitive wisdom: Giving me the gift of living in the flow of life. Once I became grounded in the depth & flow of my being, I felt called to guide others who are on a similar journey.

What type of Madison mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Madison?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
