Individuals who worry that they are "too much" for a therapist often find me to be a good fit. I see adults, teens, couples and poly groups. I have led grief groups for those who have lost a loved one to suicide. I have specialized in young adults and late teens for nearly two decades. Often therapists are not aware of the specific developmental needs of young adults and so there is a high drop out rate for YA in therapy settings. Many of my clients are creative, questioning, and active in multiple diverse communities. They tend to want a therapist who is active, engaging, and collaborative with the therapy process.

I specialize in working with individuals suffering from symptoms of anxiety and depression, both circumstantial and life-long, challenging life transitions and developmental stages, those seeking relationship building and separating, maternal mental health, parenting, life balance, first-time, brave therapy seekers and an essential desire to be understood. It can be intimidating to begin the process of self-exploration. It is not a simple endeavor. However, when the fit between psychotherapist and therapy seeker is a match, it can feel immensely relieving. Each individual is unique as is one's process of self discovery.

Everyone goes through challenging situations in life, and while you may have successfully navigated through other difficulties you've faced, there's nothing wrong with seeking out extra support when you need it. My approach is to be warm and deeply interested in both your struggles and your strengths. I work with clients who wish to understand and shift their anxiety, depression, self-criticism, and relationship difficulties. I particularly enjoy working with clients who carry marginalized identities including women, queer, trans, and POC clients. Central to my approach is the belief that cultural and environmental factors deeply play a role in our development.

A major part of this process is learning as much as possible about yourself and about the challenge you are facing. Another part is increasing your resilience in dealing with life's uncertainties. You may have acquired thoughts or behaviors over the years that worked well in the past, but are now interfering with your ability to reach your full potential.

Whether or not they say it, most of the people that I see want to live a life that is worth living. They want to feel empowered-- to be active participants in their lives. You may feel a void, emptiness, and that something is missing. Often people feel stuck in their lives because they have lost connection with a vital part of themselves and with their hopes and desires. This vitality is the source of our imagination and creativity. This internal source and "knowing" of what we need and want becomes disconnected, covered over by past disappointments, losses and fears.

It drives behavior, alters mood, interferes with sleep or appetite. Feeling stuck, unheard or frustrated? Unhappiness isn't permanent. Difficult situations at work, with your health or in your personal life can be navigated. Acceptance of your reality, or health issues, makes a significant difference.
