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.

I help women and college students who identify as emotionally sensitive. You may struggle with perfectionism, anxiety, depression, losing yourself in others, setting boundaries, or trauma. This heightened compassion is your super power! It is the source of your creativity, your passion, and your intuition! But in our culture, it can often be met with criticism leading us to feel as though we don’t belong. We learn to push away our emotions to gain acceptance only to feel more isolated. My clients want to step out of conditioning based in shame, patriarchy, and trauma and learn to trust their gifts, emotions, and intuition!

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.

Many people ask me, "Why would I want to feel my feelings?” Whether you are constantly staring at a screen, filling every space on your calendar to avoid being alone with your thoughts, putting on a new mask for every person you encounter, or using alcohol as "social lubricant" to quiet the noise, many of us have mastered the art of avoidance. Some of us neatly tuck our feelings away, trading our emotions for a nicely organized life with lots of explanations and justifications, while others stuff the jumbled up mess under the bed.

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.

You're here because you're somewhere between "deeply worried" & "frantic" over a difficult relationship. You feel frustrated, confused, hurt, angry, & maybe a little crazy. The other person may be a partner, parent, sibling, or adult child - someone w/whom you feel you want to have a relationship, but whose criticisms, controlling behaviors. volatility, manipulations, or demands steal your joy. They may also cost you a lot of time, money, energy, social support, & creativity. You wonder if you're dealing w Narcissistic Abuse. They refuse to change. You believe staying stuck where you are may destroy you, and you may be right.

You deserve to heal. You deserve to be supported, respected, and seen for all you have been, all you will be, and all you are in this moment. I trust you to be the expert on yourself and your own experiences within the body, identities, and relationships that inform your ways of knowing yourself and your world. Our work together will not focus on identifying what’s “wrong” with you, and won’t aim to “fix” you. Together, we will explore areas of distress, discomfort, or questioning through a systemic lens. I will support your intentions toward transformative change and growth from perspectives that matter to you.

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.
