Good therapy is supportive, non-judgmental, and safe. It also works – it fosters change, insight, and healing. It’s the combination of support + professional expertise that makes working with a therapist helpful.

“Transformation is possible, if we create the space for it to happen.”

How we work together:

I know showing up to therapy and sharing about your inner world can feel vulnerable. It takes courage to show yourself to another person, and I respect my clients for showing up session after session in pursuit of growth and relief. I commit to showing up, too – I enter each session with an attentive mind, a strong skill set, and a compassionate heart.

Feelings can be overwhelming, life can deliver pain, and relationships are complicated. We humans are complex and everyone struggles with something. In the therapy room we will work to make space for all of you so you can begin to live with more fullness, joy and ease in your life and relationships.

I offer traditional talk therapy as a way to sort through emotional and life experiences, learn new skills, and give you support. I also offer EMDR, a more structured therapy model used for treatment of traumas, phobias, anxiety, and more.

Areas of specialization:

  • Anxiety and/or Depression (including postpartum)
  • Relationship issues

  • Trauma (single incident or relationship trauma)
  • Complex, painful, or confusing childhood/family of origin
  • People who identify as highly sensitive

  • Worry you are not good enough/shame

  • Support for therapists and other helping professionals

Are we a good fit?

My individual clients are bright, hard-working men and women who find themselves feeling stuck, anxious, overwhelmed, or sad. They often struggle with issues around anxiety, self-worth, or shame, and tend to see themselves more critically than the rest of the world sees them. They are often high-functioning leaders in their work, family, or community, but struggle internally or in intimate relationships.

Most of my individual clients identify with one or more of these categories:

  1. Adults who grew up in complicated, confusing, or painful households and continue to be impacted by the relationship patterns, dynamics or experiences of the past.
  2. Men and women who are accomplished in their life but grapple internally with self-worth, self-criticism, anxiety or shame.
  3. Adults who are in a caretaking job or who play a caretaker role in their life but struggle to get the care and connection they need for themselves.
  4. People coping with romantic relationship distress.
  5. Empaths, sensitive people, deep feelers – women and men who tend to absorb the feelings of others and/or get overwhelmed in the world.
  6. Therapists looking for a place to get support in their work and in their lives.

Whether you are feeling overwhelmed and confused about where to start, or know exactly what you want to work on in therapy, I’m here to help.

I describe myself as a relational therapist. What this means, to me, is that my expertise is of no value to you if you don’t feel safe, understood, and cared about; healing requires the context of a safe relationship. In terms of my professional and academic training, I have studied deeply in attachment theory, interpersonal neurobiology, trauma, mindfulness and psychodynamic theory.

We might work together a short time, or enter into a longer-term therapeutic process, depending on your needs.
