My Approach to Helping

Do you want to feel better? I can help. You intuitively know what you need to do. I can provide proven, solution-focused techniques to help you get there. I love seeing my clients go from mere survival to actively thriving: doing what they always knew they could do. I specialize in narcissistic abuse recovery.

More Info About My Practice

I got my start working with kids in foster care. I learned from them how to sit with pain, acknowledge trauma and map out positive new strategies. I also work with adults healing from depression, anxiety, and abuse.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I really enjoy working with people who grew up in chaotic environments. If your parent was mentally ill or personality disordered, this often impacts your life now. I like helping people heal from this type of abuse.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I love helping people move from surviving to thriving. I take a non-pathologizing approach and we look at your symptoms and what they are trying to tell us. I teach clients how to help these parts of themselves and to tap into their own intuition to map out a treatment approach.

Over the last 20 years, I have been privileged to help many clients on their journeys to wellness.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

It takes courage to start therapy, to open up to a stranger, to look at parts of your life that are uncomfortable. I am gentle with my clients and let them set the pace. Just showing up for the first appointment is something to be proud of!
