Do you struggle with asking for what you want, saying no, and want to feel more confident and empowered? Do you want to communicate with more ease and authenticity? Do you feel insecure or anxious in romantic relationships, or find yourself questioning your worth and repeating negative patterns? Maybe you’re aware of these things and you’ve tried to change but don’t know how. Maybe you don’t believe that change is possible. Humans have evolved to flourish, but sometimes we get tripped up in the process of becoming who we want to be. This is normal, but it’s uncomfortable at best and painful at worst - and there is a solution for it.

Blossoming into the person you want to be means letting go of old stuff that’s no longer serving you. It also asks you to embrace your hopes and dreams. Both of these processes can be challenging. I’m here to do this work with you, at a pace that feels right to you. It’s not just my job but my honor and delight to accompany you on this journey.

I am trained in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), an effective form of empirically-supported psychotherapy. I would be honored to support you in clarifying your goals, calming your anxiety, stepping into your confidence, improving your communication, and living your best life. I look forward to connecting to create the future you want.

Finding a therapist who you feel a connection to can be as important and hard as the decision to begin therapy altogether.  It’s so important! Therapeutic fit is the best predictor of therapeutic outcome so I hope that as you slow down and read through this you will have a better understanding of my approach and style.

My approach is depth oriented and holistic. I look deeply at what is brining you into therapy and what will help you feel complete and ready to end. I look at the whole picture of what’s going on in your life not just the symptoms you present to me. I want to illuminate and bring healing to what’s underlying by getting to the root cause of what’s out of balance for you. Through addressing all of the pieces to the puzzle, I can help you make pivotal shifts and lifestyle changes so you can find wholeness again.

When you are feeling overwhelmed, whether by sadness, workload, anger, or something else, it’s easy to feel cut off from the world, your loved ones, or even from yourself. Therapy can help you to develop a healthy relationship with yourself, and to regain a feeling of connection, joy, and engagement with the world around you.

I consider each therapeutic relationship to be a unique and collaborative experience. I make a point of allowing the work to unfold free of any preconceived notions, and utilize techniques from the theoretical traditions of psychodynamic, somatic, and attachment-oriented therapies.

At our first visit, we’ll discuss your present and past in great detail, including the concerns that prompted you to seek treatment. Based on our conversation, I will offer initial impressions and recommendations for our work together. Together, we will gain a deeper understanding of the ways your mind works, cultivate better coping strategies, recognize areas in your life where you can begin to take back control from habitual behaviors, and start you on a path to better health and functioning, all while exploring the deeper, less conscious influences on your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. You’ll also receive homework, morning practices, and tools to use between sessions to deepen the work and to appease the parts of us that want the process to feel tangible and productive.

I started this practice to give each individual I work with the time, attention, and empathy they deserve. With a trauma informed approach, I work to develop a therapeutic relationship built on mutual trust, respect, and understanding. I know that for many of you this relationship requires an anti-oppression practice that is identity affirming and empowering for whoever you are and whoever you might become and I am committed to that practice. You’ve been yourself your whole life and you probably know what works for you and what doesn’t and I want therapy to be something that works for you. If you are interested in learning more or are ready to make an appointment, then I encourage you to reach out and schedule a free phone consultation.

At the heart of my work is my collaboration with others to develop a valued, meaningful life. A life that is lived with integrity, curiosity, joy and meaningful relationships with others and self. There is no life without experiencing pain and loss. As we work together we learn to embrace our suffering as well as fully experience our joy and happiness.

It is my belief that the therapeutic relationship is sacred and instrumental to the healing process. As we work together I cultivate openness, curiosity, and warmth--meeting you where you are. Each individual has the potential to heal and experience freedom. My role is to support and guide this sacred process in a trusting and safe environment. As Rumi said “The wound is the place where the Light enters you”. I will be your ally as we uncover and heal your wounds and blockages, unstick repetitive patterns, set up healthy boundaries, navigate new territories, and realize one’s potential.

While many people come to therapy seeking relief from specific emotional problems such as depression, anxiety or stress, or in order to come to terms with a traumatic or otherwise painful history, others come with broad dissatisfaction with their lives while at the same time having some sense that there is a better life they could be living, and an unlived version of themselves that they could become. Psychotherapy is a wonderful opportunity for you to partner with an accepting, non-judgemental and dedicated professional who is experienced in helping others recognize their needs and strengths and to discover opportunities for new experiences.
I pay careful attention to, and collaboratively explore, the subtleties and intricacies of personal and interpersonal experiences as they unfold in the moment. In a creative and sometimes playful manner, we will begin to imagine and explore new ways of seeing yourself, open up new ways of relating to others, and in the process overcome negative expectations that have been holding you back. I firmly believe that every one of us has the potential to live a life of our choosing and I will provide a safe and confidential environment in which you will be actively and creatively listened to, and then provide the feedback, guidance and emotional support needed to move your life in new directions. When working well this process of change involves moments of uncertainty, discovery, playfulness, creativity and surprise.

Let’s return to the ancient science of human connection that our ancestors knew was the way to heal, grow and get momentum for transformational change. I am especially committed to eliminating the scarcity of quality mental healthcare for groups that have been historically marginalized, including people who are caregivers, women, BIPOC, disabled, older, LGBTQ+, or otherwise don’t fit into the tiny boxes our society tends to create and uphold.

Together, we will safely and gently process emotions that connect your past to the here & now so you can increase your capacity to improve your life, on your terms. Imagine what it would be like to discover and amplify what’s already there—an inborn wellness and inherent strength with roots that are spiritual, cultural and unconditional!! It’s such an honor to take this walk toward whole-self wellness with the people I serve.
