Utilizing a holistic approach in my practice, I like to think of myself more like a therapeutic guide. Life is not easy and while we all try to be intentional about the choices we make we ultimately want to feel better, have better relationships with others and most importantly improve the relationship we have with ourselves.

Since the beginning of time we have struggled toward an understanding of how the mind works and what can be done when it isn’t functioning properly. In our work together, we will gain a deeper understanding of how your mind and body works for and sometimes against you.

We live in a time where we have more information about us as humans and our environment. I work to understand you, by blending traditional psychotherapy, mindfulness, neuroscience, biology and nutrition even behavioral economics! We look at all the contributing factors that affect how you feel and to help you not only understand why you feel stressed, anxious, overwhelmed and/or depressed but we also work on implement lifestyle and behavioral changes that will help you to live a better, more purposeful life. At the end of the day that is what is important, that you feel like your life is meaningful. If this resonates with you please feel free to reach out. Take care of yourself!

I would love to hear your stories — and how you're feeling today. Our session will begin with your story. We will listen together without criticism or judgment. Over time, as we continue, you'll gain a new perspective and awareness, accompanied by fresh ideas and behaviors, and many practical tools. As we understand and explore the aspects of your life, the therapy room will become a safe space to rehearse your real life. You'll find viable solutions for the day-to-day issues you face outside of our session room.

I am currently providing online therapy sessions during the COVID-19 public health crisis.

This work starts with establishing a relationship with a therapist you feel comfortable with and will respect your thoughts, feelings, and life experiences. I place a lot of emphasis on ensuring a good match between my patients and myself so that the therapeutic work can be successful. I offer a space marked by both relief from stress and challenge toward change. I encourage curiosity about the self, employ humor and metaphor in my work, and believe that authenticity is key.

I am not a silent therapist and believe that my relationships with patients should be collaborative. Please feel free to contact me to talk about how I can help you.

Anyone can find it isolating when you don't feel seen or heard by others. It can also be a struggle to live in an oppressive world. Maybe you are out of resources and everything keeps demanding more. These stresses mount if we don't have the community support we need to take care of ourselves. You know these problems because you've probably dealt with them your whole life in some shape or form. Reaching out for help can be the hardest but most important first step to break that isolation.
