In my work, I combine my passion for stories and relationships with a blend of therapeutic approaches, including Family Systems Theory, Narrative Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Emotionally Focused Therapy. This means while working together, we will establish a trusting relationship where you can explore your stories, make sense of how you have arrived here today, and identify how you would like, and what you need, to go forward into the life you want to live. * I do not currently offer evening or weekend appointments *

In my practice, I work with individuals who seek to strengthen their relationships with themselves and others, and who desire to become their most authentic selves. I believe relationships and connection are powerful elements, and where we can experience the greatest change. I have worked in multiple treatment settings, including community mental health, intensive treatment for eating disorders, and a variety of private settings. In addition to treating individuals impacted by anxiety and life transitions, who seek to establish deeper connection in their lives, I offer therapy centered on the following specialty areas: grief and loss, spirituality and faith (specifically discernment regarding exiting or changing faith, and religious harm), and perinatal and postpartum mental health. I also provide therapy services to other mental health providers.

Techniques I Use

Specialties

  • Family Systems External link

    Family Systems forms the foundation of my therapeutic approach. Family Systems is relevant even if you are attending therapy as an individual, because it means I am considering how your systems have impacted your development.

  • Emotionally Focused External link

    Emotions are often assigned a negative reputation, but they hold innate power to help us change and grow. I work with individuals and couples to help them identify and better regulate their emotions. With couples, this work includes identifying the patterns which serve as barriers to connection.

  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) External link

    I integrate the importance of mindfulness and skills-development into the weekly therapy practice to address issues of emotion regulation. This is not full-fidelity DBT, but rather an integration of DBT components into an interpersonal style. If you are seeking full-fidelity DBT services, please refer to http://www.dbt-lbc.org/ for a directory of DBT therapists.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Postpartum External link

    Many women experience an increase in depression or anxiety/panic during and after pregnancy. Our work together will focus on normalizing what is happening to you, and support you in developing practical skills for taking care of yourself during this important season.

  • Pregnancy (Prenatal Mental Health) External link

    Many women experience an increase in depression or anxiety/panic during and after pregnancy. Our work together will focus on normalizing what is happening to you, and support you in developing practical skills for taking care of yourself during this important season.

  • Spirituality External link

    As a practitioner, I am comfortable working with you within your spiritual framework. Therapy is also a space for anyone who has suffered harm from their experiences in religion, has questioned their faith, or has experienced the disorienting experience of leaving your faith community. This is challenging and important work, and I am comfortable sitting with you in that discomfort.

  • Loss or Grief External link

    Grief and loss is, at it's core, a loss of connection. My work in this area focuses on creating an environment where you can mourn your loss, identify where connection has been ruptured, and begin to imagine what life will be like moving forward.

  • Anxiety External link

    Anxiety isn't always tightness in your chest or a panic attack. Sometimes it is thoughts you can't seem to slow down, shutting down in social situations, or becoming irritable with others. No matter what anxiety looks like for you, we can work together to increase your ability to observe what is happening and slow your thoughts, allowing you to feel in control again.
