You want to experience satisfying relationships, connection to life, a more positive sense of self, and emotional balance.
Counseling can provide a safe, supportive and judgement-free setting where we work together to get you to thrive in your relationships, your life, your art and your career.
I help creative, successful and passionate people build upon their own strengths, find clarity, silence the inner critic, find their voice, identify fears, negative thoughts and unhealthy beliefs in order to find freedom and connection that exists on the other side of anxiety. Together we can transform challenge into opportunity and open the doors to self-awareness and self-ownership to get you back to the safety, joy and intention you?ve been longing for.
I have extensive training and experience working with couples and individuals on issues including anxiety, relationships concerns, infertility, premarital, intimacy, infidelity, trauma, depression, codependency, low self esteem and life transitions to name a few.
For couples that may mean developing effective communication and conflict resolution strategies, increasing intimacy, and learning to navigate life as a team. With individuals we may be overcoming negative patterns, and developing tools to cope with anxiety and stress.
My therapeutic approach focuses on creating awareness, discovery, and confidence to motivate you into action. My style is dynamic, engaging, motivating, supportive and warm and I provide a safe and judgement-free setting where you can be heard and understood.
I utilize a holistic approach that integrates cognitive behavioral techniques with mindfulness and emotionally focused strategies to support people of diverse backgrounds and experiences in reaching their true potential. The work is creative, strength-based and goal oriented to move you towards clarity and space for positive possibilities.
I welcome you to call me for a free phone consultation to find out more about my practice and how I may be helpful to you. I look forward to speaking with you!

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
My approach also integrates sensorimotor therapy, sometimes referred to as mindfulness or body-mind work. It teaches you to observe how your thoughts, feelings, beliefs and attitudes impact physical sensation, automatic arousal and your overall sense of self. Through the tracking of physical sensations, incorporating grounding exercises, and implementing orienting and physical movement exercises, you build awareness, competency, and develop a sense of empowerment. Sensorimotor therapy can be highly effective in treating trauma, panic, depression, anxiety and physical pain.
