I offer individual counseling to adults, utilizing an integrative approach that is strength and wellness-focused, trauma-informed and highly personalized. My clinical demeanor is heartful, gentle and compassionate, as well as direct and honest.
I work with a range of emotional and behavioral issues, including:
- Depression and feelings of sadness
- Anxiety and panic
- Trauma recovery
- Intimate partner violence
- Attachment wounding
- Spirituality, and those looking to bring their spiritual practice more into their everyday lives
- Support for empaths, intuitives and highly sensitive individuals
- Stress management, and adjusting to life changes
The therapeutic work that I offer is steeped in mindfulness, which involves focusing on the present moment, without judgement and with full curiosity and compassion. I place an emphasis on slowing down and creating spaciousness for exploring, reflecting, unfolding, witnessing, paying attention, and, in turn, growing and evolving. I believe that the body, mind, and spirit are deeply interconnected, and our bodies hold an innate wisdom to move towards wholeness. I also believe in the healing power of attuned therapist-client connection and collaboration.
I utilize psychodynamic therapy, meaning that I support the development of insight into present-day issues, to recognize and transform recurring negative patterns in interpersonal relationships, emotions, beliefs, and thoughts. I also bring in expressive arts therapies as well as somatic, mindful and experiential psychotherapy modalities such as Hakomi.
I weave in breath, mindfulness meditation, mindful self-compassion, poetry and writing as well as mindful and expressive movement, all of which promote mind-body awareness, authenticity and the freedom to be who you are.
In addition, I offer Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. EMDR therapy is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders.

In response to Covid-I9, I offer TeleHealth (video session) and phone appointments only. I am uncertain as to when I will return to in-person office visits.
