It takes a ton of courage and bravery to seek therapy. I understand how difficult it could be to focus on yourself and to invite someone else into your world. It also requires self-love to take a step like this to seek the life you want for yourself.

As a therapist, I want you to feel welcome and supported on your journey of self-discovery. I want to offer an open and non-judgmental approach that could allow for profound self-transformation because that’s what I believe in.

Some of the work I provide is compassionate support, giving a safe environment to explore the depth of you. Other parts of the work include healing deeper emotional traumas, using Body-Centered approaches. You don’t need to know a lot about your body to do this work. I like to say that I work with the body to navigate the mind, to gain more compassion and understanding. Please let me know if you have any questions regarding the work. Looking forward to helping you on this journey.

All you need to bring to therapy is an open mind and a willingness to explore. I am a very interactive therapist; I give a lot of feedback and guidance. In my work with individuals, I help people see how they developed the coping skills and defense mechanisms they did, and how to begin recognizing them in a less judgmental way. I also teach couples new communication skills: how to rebuild trust and safety after a breach, how to mirror one another, ways to validate and empathize. We work on breaking bad patterns and create healthier ones using positivity and appreciations.

It's so rewarding to help children, couples and families heal old and current wounds, and to see my clients use therapy as a way to soar to new emotional freedoms. Please don't be in pain anymore: contact me so we can set goals together, develop healthier ways of coping, and watch you blossom

Relationships can be very challenging and complicated both with others and ourselves. If you find yourself in a place questioning repetitive thoughts or feeling emotions that may be roadblocks for personal growth, therapy is an opportunity for you to explore and grow both personally and interpersonally. We are all made up of many parts and often times we have a couple parts of us, such as an angry part or anxious part, that we feel defined by. Often times these parts prevent us from living our truest and fullest selves. I promise to be fully present and committed in helping you understand these difficult parts and how they may be preventing you from feeling like yourself. I have a very interactive style and will work with you at a pace you are comfortable with to help you find peace and harmony with yourself and in your life.

Every person has the strength and healing wisdom inside them to deal with life's greatest struggles. My job is to help you reconnect to those strengths and reinforce them so that you live your life in a way that is true to you. I view people not through a lens of pathology, but one of strength and optimism.

Therapy is not magic, but sometimes it can feel that way. What is important is the therapeutic match--it is a large predictor of therapeutic success. It is the safety and trust that allows for opening and insight. I encourage all potential clients to explore, shop around, really trust their own inner sense of what feels like a good place to land.

Please reach out to set up a free 15 minute consultation with me directly to discuss working together, or if you have any questions or are curious.

I love working with high achieving mid-career professionals who tend towards perfectionism, long to form and sustain close relationships, and struggle with health challenges. Perhaps you're dealing with a hard to diagnose chronic condition like ME (aka Chronic Fatigue) or EDS or the aftermath of having survived cancer.

Through psychoeducation about developmental trauma, the nervous system and ACEs research, we'll empower you to understand the connections between chronic stress and medical conditions. This knowledge coupled with EMDR work will allow you to let go of old false negative beliefs about what your illness says about your worthiness. In addition to the insight work, you'll learn skills to tone your nervous system making it more resilient to both medical stressors and the sometimes destabilizing impact friends or family members have on you. In addition, you'll get really good at identifying your needs and advocating for those needs in relationships with peers and medical providers.

Working together, you'll gain clarity and freedom to act in new ways. Mindfulness and attunement are integral to the process. You'll learn to see where you’re avoiding action and where you’re taking actions that are leading you down the same path of isolation and stuckness. EMDR fosters change by desensitizing your mind to disturbing stimuli and unburdening your nervous system of past ways of not being seen and heard, of feeling disconnected from your body and your emotions.

Most of us inhabiting this planet go through periods in our lives where we feel overwhelmed by our circumstances, relationships, emotions, life transitions, career, etc. You are not alone and there is nothing wrong with you. This is a part of life, living, and being truly alive! When we can feel pain, we know our nerves are working...for us. And perhaps steering us in a new direction. As a trauma informed psychotherapist, I practice therapy with a mind-body/bottom-up approach, with the understanding that our body has an infinite amount of wisdom to guide us in healing our body mind and soul. When we learn how to slow down our body to access our innate wisdom, we then have an opportunity to heal the past, enjoy the present, and feel confident about the future. Integrating both art and science, I work together with my clients to reach their goals in ways that feel joyous, supportive, and comforting.
I also offer Clinical Social Work Supervision that is designed to enhance your clinical and professional skills, knowledge, and attitudes in order to achieve competency in your Social Work identity and in providing quality clinical care.
