Therapy sessions with me are personalized, compassionate, evidenced-based treatment based in the DBT principle of Acceptance versus Change. My goal is always to create a warm, safe, non-judgmental environment so that you can begin to make the REAL change that can transform your life.

My role is to help guide you towards developing healthier patterns towards yourself & in your relationships. Together, we can explore what is getting in the way of achieving growth & healing by empowering you to embrace vulnerability. We will dig deep to learn what you must accept versus what is in your power to change, being mindful that neither your past nor your future control you. By enhancing the relationship with yourself and others, challenging unhealthy thoughts that create unhelpful behaviors, and developing new and effective coping skills, you will begin your journey to wellness and finding inner peace.

The consistent theme I experience as a therapist is my passion for helping clients work towards their goals & achieve their highest potential. I am continuously amazed by the resilience & strength I see from clients who strive to better themselves, do the hard work in and out of therapy, & make the changes they are yearning to see in their lives. Accompanying you on your journey to recovery, peace, & wellness is my greatest privilege as a therapist.

Despite all of our best intentions, love is not enough to sustain a long term relationship. It can be especially difficult for people who grew up in families where healthy relationships either never existed or were in short supply. When you get caught in the frustration of perpetual problems and gridlock, it can be profoundly helpful to bring in a guide that can offer you not only a new perspective, but someone who can illuminate the unconscious patterns at a play—and set a clear path forward.

My mission is to give you mindfulness-based, practical tools, and tangible insights for repairing and re-building resilient relationships. Often times we can mistake the authenticity of a difficult emotional experience as an objective truth about ourselves or our relationships. Mindful awareness and compassion can help us learn how to be in conversation with those emotions. It can also give us the space to become curious about what habitual stories we are telling ourselves over and over again.

My approach helps clients to identify and uproot deeply entrenched negative patterns that shape how they see themselves and the world --and empowers them to redeem both their relationships and life stories. My integrative approach is also grounded in my training in Emotionally Focused Therapy and the Gottman Method for Couples alongside mindfulness-based techniques to promote insight, resilience, and well being.

When you’re in crisis with a problem that needs immediate attention, the thought of spending many sessions getting to know your therapist can feel daunting and frustrating. While it’s absolutely critical to building trust with a compassionate and collaborative therapist, it’s also important to get to the root of the problem, put it into a new framework, and identify practical tools to help you move forward and heal.

No matter what you situation is or how difficult it seems, I want to let know: Things Can Get Better! Even if you have been in counseling before or it feels hopeless: Things Can Get Better. It will take a commitment and work on your part, but Things Can Get Better.

My promise to you as a professional and someone who loves helping people is this: I will do my absolute best to create a non-judgmental place where you can voice your hopes and concerns. I will also promise to be honest and respectful.

Lastly, I have a few questions for you...

How good will it feel when you are feeling and doing better? Who will be the first person who notices when you've met your therapy goals?

I look forward to working with you on this awesome journey to reaching your personal goals. Talk with you soon!

This is a great first step into getting what you want out of life.  It is so important to feel you have found someone with whom you can speak openly and freely. During our free initial consultation, I’ll answer any questions you have about therapy and explore what methods might be appropriate for you given your situation. The most important part of therapy is recognizing that you are on the right track to making progress towards your goals.

We’ll go over your goals and desires and how to evaluate reaching them. In the process, you’ll experience my style as a therapist and my commitment to helping you reach your personal therapy goals.

Difficulties do not have to hold us back. I work with my clients to transform their setbacks into constructive, empowering, life enhancing experiences. I provide therapy for creating permanent change in the way a person handles challenges and help them to find solutions for reaching their goals.

It is so important to make time to address our mental and emotional health. Having a space to do so without judgment helps us to learn how to meet our needs in other relationships at work and at home. The therapeutic relationship is one that can help you to practice setting boundaries while being vulnerable and at the same time examine how you respond to the challenges you face. Having a weekly check in also keeps you accountable to yourself. Many of us have a narrative of how we see and respond to the world and it’s important to examine and rewrite your narrative when it is no longer serving you.

Compassion, curiosity and humor are the heart of my practice. I understand it takes great courage to reach out and begin the process of growth and healing. I bring myself and my lived experiences into the room. In our work together there will be laughter, tears and aha moments as we uncover unconscious blocks and patterns and learn more adaptive, sustainable ways of being in the world. You might be in a place where you're looking to process past trauma; you might want to learn immediate skills to soothe your nervous system; you might want someone to walk beside you as you move through a recent loss; you might be looking for more directive help and guidance. I will meet you where you're at and together we'll determine the pace and structure of our sessions. I'm deeply passionate about what I do and commit myself fully to the growth and healing of each of my clients. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions about what our work together might look like.
