Are you dissatisfied with your life as it is right now? Do you wish for greater success, self-acceptance, love and connection? Are you plagued with anxiety or lost in depression? Do you wonder what really matters in life, what makes life worth living? Therapy can help you realize the life you desire and help you become more confident and secure in your sense of who you are.
Life inevitably brings challenge. Difficult life histories and current struggles place obstacles before us that initially hinder us from becoming who we long to be. With my help, past events and unfruitful ways of being can be processed and transformed so that they no longer impact your present or future. Modalities such as EMDR, psychodynamic therapy, emotionally focused therapy and sensorimotor psychotherapy will help you discover and embody a new way of being. I am fiercely committed to helping you clear your path forward to embrace greater ease, integrity, belonging, and love.
I specialize in treating trauma and attachment in all age groups (0-100). Healthy relationships are the foundation for a happy life. Inner work can clear obstacles to connection.
I offer a balanced integrative approach. Together, we will unearth the roots of your distress. We can identify core beliefs that have arisen out of your life experience, process these, and replace negative beliefs with more adaptive, positive beliefs. Habitual negative feelings will be explored, processed, and then released. Behaviors can be targeted for change, and new habits can be developed. We might seek to access the wisdom of your body in promoting your healing. Therapy is collaborative, and you can set the pace, choice of modalities, and goals.
Common issues that bring individuals to therapy include: relationship difficulties, life transitions, depression, anxiety, panic, dissociation, PTSD, mood problems, low self-esteem, impulse control problems, adoption, divorce, perfectionism, loss of employment, a sense of overwhelm, and the feeling that happiness always seems out of reach.
Special populations in my practice include abuse survivors, adopted individuals and their families, rape survivors, those managing bipolar disorder, therapists, providers suffering from vicarious trauma, multicultural couples, and couples where one or both partners have experienced trauma.
I offer culturally sensitive and gender-inclusive therapy. Therapy is individualized to meet your needs, and is provided in a supportive and non-judgmental way. Your goals provide the basis for our work together, and you can choose short-term or long-term therapy.
Your spirituality, whatever form it may take, is welcome in my office. Your whole being will be honored. You are welcome in my practice, just as you are. Find the support you deserve. Allow your true being to shine ever more brightly in the world! Call now!
