I will help you make sense of why you respond to life the way you do, and why your body responds to triggers the way it does. I have helped hundreds of abuse survivors in their healing journey. If you're willing to partner with me and work hard on your goals, I can help you experience improvement in symptoms. The past doesn't have to stay in the present. Working on the trauma doesn't have to be scary. I will prepare you for it and help you see the progress you make along the way.

Greetings! Thank you for your interest in learning more about collaborating with me. I have provided information below, on my theoretical orientation and areas of specialization. Please feel free to message me with any questions, or schedule a 10-minute phone consultation. Sending well wishes your way!

I work together with individuals who are curious; curious about their patterns, curious about the possibility of relief, of healing, of strengthening, and of social connectedness. Life is full of overwhelming experiences that can translate to distressing levels of sadness, anxiety, anger, regret, shame, disappointment, indecision and confusion. Together, we will explore the unique features and drivers of such challenges, and in doing so, cultivate capacity for long-lasting change.

I approach my clients from a Strengths-Based lens, and use a variety of techniques informed by Polyvagal Theory and the Adaptive Information Processing Model (AIP). I specialize in trauma recovery, and use the technique of EMDR to address a wide variety of overwhelming life experiences.

I am keenly aware of how daunting it can be to find a new therapist. The saturation can overwhelm and leave one feeling that the right fit may be out of reach. For this reason, I offer no-cost, 10-minute phone consultations, to give you the opportunity to determine whether my style and approach best meet your needs. I look forward to hearing from you!

You deserve to live a fulfilling life with healthy relationships and satisfying life choices. It is natural and common to feel "blocked" or "stuck" as one travels through life's challenges. It is normal to feel sad, frustrated, angry or confused... to feel like no one, even a partner or a family member, understands what you are going through. I am an experienced clinician who has successfully helped many adults, adolescents, couples and families understand the barriers to meeting their needs and identify the ways and means to move forward.

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
