I truly believe in our ability to change the way we are living and experiencing the world, starting from the inside out. Choosing to take those first steps towards opening yourself to another person is never easy and you're already on your way. I hope to provide a space for you to freely express yourself, process life experiences, envision life as you imagine it and feel empowered to take action towards your desires. Please reach out to see if I am a fit for what it is you are being guided towards!

It takes a great deal of courage to ask for help. Appreciating and respecting that courage, my work is to help my clients attain their goals, discarding whatever has prevented them from doing so in the past. I consider therapy a collaborative effort between the individual and therapist. My hope is that the clients with whom I work feel supported and empowered to make the changes they desire.

Treatment focuses on increasing awareness about life patterns, building on strengths, and developing new coping abilities. My professional strengths include: a knowledge of a variety of presenting issues and treatment options, an innate ability to connect easily with clients, and the capacity to incorporate the realities of daily living into the process.

My main way of helping people is through EMDR therapy. What EMDR therapy does is help your brain do what it is supposed to do-- heal itself. At times, the brain is unable to heal from a stressful or disturbing event due to how a memory stored in the body. When this happens memories are stored in the exact same way they where felt. This could explain why some war veterans feel in danger when hearing fireworks on the 4th of July. What is happening is that their bodies are reacting to unprocessed memories of war, which are felt in the exact same way they were experienced. This is what is called an automatic response.

For example, if I say, "roses are red " you might respond with, "violets are blue." However the truth is that violets are never blue, they're violet. Another example of an automatic response would be of a doctor hitting your knee with that little triangle hammer, chances are you're going to flinch causing the automatic response of kicking your leg.

These responses govern how we react to people, places, and things. Of course, some of our automatic responses are unwanted or even unwarranted at times. This is where EMDR comes in. It helps process these memories and helps you respond to life instead of reacting to it. I have experienced extraordinary change with EMDR both with myself and with clients.

The thing about Gestalt therapy that I find so amazing is that people come in for so many different reasons, but always discover that they meet aspects of themselves that have been pushed down or haven't had the support to emerge.

Finding a therapist is a little like dating - you may have to try a few out to find the right fit for you, and I encourage that for you. Should we be a good fit, I will honor our work together and do my best to adjust as needed (I love feedback)...to help heal the wounds of the past, and create the path forward that you want. We will build a relationship founded on rapport and trust and may even share some laughs together. I hope to meet you soon!

My belief is that people are genuinely good and resourceful, and therapy is a place to honor and develop those strengths. Our time together is a safe space where you're encouraged to hit the "pause" button on your life, in order to reflect upon and examine ongoing patterns and thought processes more deeply. Through thoughtful questioning and exploration, we will work together to identify the origins and meanings of the issues that have led you to seek therapy. As we gain a greater understanding, we also find ways to access the tools, strengths, and resources needed to promote wellness in your life.

I encourage you to reach out to learn more, share your story, and determine if we are a good fit. I look forward to meeting you.

Those who come to me for therapy are seeking to go deep, to process and heal past hurts, and to cultivate more meaningful and rewarding connections and relationships in their lives. Many of the people I see are navigating expansive and challenging experiences of intimacy, relationships, trauma, grief, sexuality, and gender, or struggles with mental wellness that have either arisen suddenly or been present for many years.

In therapy I seek to build a relationship that allows you to process and understand vulnerable parts of yourself and deeply felt emotions while we also look together for ways to shift patterns and behaviors in order to build the life and relationships you long for. For those looking to process parts of yourself and past experience that you may have turned away from exploring in the past, I am ready to go there with you, providing support in navigating challenging emotions and circumstances to find your inner resilience and most authentic expression of yourself.

Life can be incredibly complicated and seeking help is a courageous feat, so, welcome to my practice! I believe that therapy should be a safe landing pad where unresolved and "stuck" patterns can be discovered and untangled, and new skills can be developed. Nowhere else than the therapy room can we just "be," without having to perform or worry about being judged.

When clients come to my practice for trauma or substance use work, I aim to create a safe space where my clients feel comfortable to enough to walk thru their suffering in order to get to the other side.

Alternatively, often people simply need an objective voice to listen or provide feedback as they navigate life transitions. Through my collaborative and relational style, I seek to empower while guiding clients through to their next chapter of their life. I hope to help clients examine how they have been marginalized by power dynamics where applicable.

Whatever the reason is that you are seeking support, I am honored at the possibility of an opportunity to be that person!
