Do you feel there aren't enough hours in the day? Are you boggled down by the seemingly never-ending demands of work, home and lack of self-care? Balancing being a parent , friend, employee, partner leaving no room for being an individual? We often find ourselves depleted at the end of the day, and honestly, sometimes first thing in the morning! This can affect how we show up in life. Imagine waking to a feeling of peace instead of the overwhelming dread of an impossible to-do list that continues to grow and doesn't include you.

OPEN FOR NEW CLIENTS!! Are you carrying things with you that are affecting your everyday life; your work, your relationships, home life, parenting , your reactions, concentration, intrusive thoughts? You do not need to carry these things with you every day. They are weighing you down, and it is time for you to reset yourself. I work with individuals, couples, and families. Your particular needs determine which type of therapy works best. When working with couples and families I take a systemic approach. I view the "system" or interactions among one another as being faulty, not any particular individual.

You’re at a crossroads in your life that demands that you show up as unapologetically YOU. But you’re uncertain how to embody that version of yourself. Or what that even means exactly. You’re intuitive, spiritual or highly sensitive, yet you can’t seem to apply those super powers to your own life. You’ve heard a deeper call to integrate your shadow parts, release your past traumas and heal your inner child wounds, but the very thought feels overwhelming. You crave space mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually to relentlessly pursue your passions and show up as your favorite version of yourself.

Many people suffer and they are not quite sure what the problem is. Many other people may have been told what the problem is but this still has not helped. These are the people I work best with. No matter what the problem seems to be, I seem to be able to help when others have not. When my clients have told me this, I know I am on the right track.

I am honored to be a person with whom friends, colleagues and clients have trusted to share their stories and trials and triumphs of life. I believe that our shared connections, compassion and authenticity are precious gifts to our health and wellness. The ups and downs of life often get in the way of becoming our best selves. I love working with clients who are struggling to find that voice of authenticity that’s been hidden by loneliness, comparing themselves to an impossible ideal, or even years of trauma and abuse. Together, we’ll work in collaboration, incorporating connection to mind and body to reclaim a sense of wholeness.

I approach therapy with the belief that the individual is more than the difficulties they are currently experiencing. I evaluate what clients want out of therapy, what meaning they make of their current difficulties and how these concerns manifest themselves. I work in a collaborative, strengths-based manner. I understand the desire for immediate relief of the difficulties that brings someone to therapy, while also bringing an openness to exploring the factors that contributed to the development of these difficulties. My approach is predominately psychodynamic, drawing from relational, systems, and gender-sensitive approaches.

In a rapidly changing world, parenting can be subject to fads and changing styles, and parenting in some privileged circles has become a competitive sport. But the needs of child development as delineated by science remain relatively stable: safety, structure, support, and love.
