Anxieties are running high and isolation is difficult. Please reach out if you are feeling overwhelmed or alone -- it will help.

I work with adults of all ages dealing with depression, anxiety, relationship stresses, feeling "stuck," identity issues, sexuality, major life transitions, negative patterns, and grief and loss. Our work together can help you develop better coping skills, reduce any anxiety, improve self-esteem, reframe your perspectives, improve relationships, and loosen those feelings of "aloneness."

My faith in the therapeutic process is founded in the belief that we each have the ability to access more of what can provide comfort and clarity in our lives. Intention, curiosity and a devotion to a greater happiness are the basic tools needed to kindle profound change. Experiencing 'stuck-ness,' repetitive negative patterns, self-doubt, loss and fear can make common obstacles seem insurmountable, and cloud the path to our hopes for the future. With a non-judgmental and alert presence, the vague often becomes lucid, and confusion can give way to acceptance and understanding—with ourselves and towards others.
My interest is in simplicity of being, and in cultivating what we do that is of service, while looking with a spirit of inquiry at whatʼs not working. What is the relationship of form to function in our lives, and how can we manifest a more purposeful design? It is my most sincere hope that I can aid in supporting a natural awareness that is the key to living a fulfilled expression of our own authenticity, integrity and joy.
I specialize in life transitions, relationships, loss, identity, sexuality, creativity, fear, anxiety, spirituality and existential isolation. My work is with couples and individuals, with the collaborative goal of helping you find more effective ways to be happy, and tapping your existing resources to weather the ever-shifting currents of life.

It can be difficult to feel secure and make connections with others while feeling bogged down from past experiences and relationships. I work together with my clients, you are the experts in their life, you feel what they feel and it's not for me to invalidate that. Instead I try to hear your story, and work with you on changing your narrative to be the story that you want to have. I believe that we all have this need to connect and we are affected by our past experiences that impact how we react to things, but that we can gain insights on how to make changes for ourselves.

I will work with you to provide a warm, welcoming, and affirming space to safely speak about anything that is keeping you from living fully and richly or from progressing towards your goals.

As we develop our relationship, I will also respectfully challenge you in the service of expanding your sense of what is possible. I believe that once established, a trusting and generative therapeutic relationship is a place to laugh, cry, dream, vent, reflect, and expand. It can allow you to feel seen and heard in new ways, and through that experience, to develop new ways of feeling, acting, and thinking in your work and relationships.

Together we will work to deepen your knowledge of yourself, both in the present moment and in the context of your life history. We will identify and utilize your existing strengths and resilience to help address life concerns, provide clarity about parts of yourself that could benefit from greater attention and development, and improve your ability to feel comfortable identifying and coping with challenging emotional situations.

These are unprecedented times. You are on “lockdown” and your life has been put on hold. It’s isolating, uncertain, and lonely. Things feel out of control. Time seems to vanish as one day blurs into the next. Work/life balance, relationships, erratic sleep cycles, and unfinished emotional business challenge you.I can help you regain a sense of control in this out-of-control world.

My approach to therapy is empowering, collaborative, and authentic. I understand that taking the first step toward making changes is the hardest step. I’m here to support you in the process of healing, discovery, and transformation. Here is one of my favorite proverbs that mirrors therapy, ‘Just as the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly.’

You may feel like you are functioning in life, but struggling underneath. With so much uncertainty in the world, you may be experiencing more anxiety, sadness, or overwhelm. Perhaps you are struggling in your intimate relationship, with your family or friends or by yourself. No matter your situation, talking to someone can be helpful to feel more grounded, clear, and less stressed.

In allowing ourselves to feel, we create a space within to open and grow. In our busy lives, we often forget our true nature and end up feeling stuck, tired, anxious and unhappy.

As a holistic and depth oriented therapist, my role is to support my adults and couples in finding wholeness — mind, body, and spirit — creating more joy, ease, and healthy relationships. I help my clients remember their empowered authentic voice and “tap back in” to their true self.

In a safe and warm environment, my clients are able to explore their past and their present, to understand what’s missing in their life, what they truly yearn for, and what is keeping them apart from that. Through this exploration, I help clients express their inner most desires, bringing more peace, balance, and happiness to their lives.

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.
