I am passionate about helping adults who struggle with a variety of mental health concerns, such as anxiety, depression, trauma, low self-esteem and social/interpersonal challenges. I believe the personal and the collective are intertwined as well; whether we discuss it explicitly or not, I tend to see my clients' personal struggles against the backdrop of larger cultural and global forces (gender/race oppression, our fractured politics, global climate change, Covid).
I am trained in Hakomi Psychology, an experiential, mindfulness-based therapy. Hakomi is a powerful modality that offers an extremely efficient way to access to our innermost feelings, unmet needs, fears and wishes.

I enjoy Gestalt as an immediate, experiential (and playful) way to engage in therapy. It is present-moment focused, and may attend to what is happening between client and therapist. A session can become a laboratory for discovery and experimentation. Automatic responses that may inhibit your ability to connect with self and others in preferred ways can be amplified and adjusted.
My orientation includes an existential framework. No specific technique is associated with existential psychotherapy; rather, it offers a philosophical stance of attending to the ultimate concerns of our existence: death, isolation, meaninglessness and freedom/responsibility. Clients have varying levels of interest in attending explicitly to these "ultimate concerns," and it is certainly not a requirement, but can be very enriching and enlivening to do so.
Having constant anxiety and/or panic is like having a terrorizing, overwhelming bully on the inside. Anxiety holds us hostage and makes us avoid many things in life; what's worse, anxiety feeds on our avoidance! With treatment you can learn to manage it successfully. You will find yourself able to do things you never thought possible. Believe it or not, you are much stronger than your anxiety. Let's find out how we can help you show anxiety the door and finally get your life back.
We all deserve to audaciously fulfill our unique potential. Therapy can help unravel the web of feelings, beliefs and rules that keep us stuck and feeling small. Let's find out how we can help you stand a little taller, start to find your voice, and believe in your own worth down in the core of your being.
In therapy we may attend to the impacts of gender oppression: prejudice, objectification, hostility, unpaid labor, deferred dreams, violence, subtle intimidation, lower expectations, and so on. For many, cultural gender discrimination leads to various problems, such as self-loathing, disordered eating, low confidence, impostor syndrome, dampened voice, a focus on appearance over meaningful living.
Considering a new relationship and want to avoid the pitfalls you have fallen into time and again? Care to push the edges of those self-limiting comfort zones and make the most of this one precious life? Personal growth is a wonderful way to use psychotherapy. Let's go on an adventure, and see what brings you most alive.
Whether starting a new friendship or in the 40th year of marriage, relationships can rock us to the core. We are often driven by early attachment wounds, fears and needs. Wired for connection, we find fulfillment and health through social connection - yes, that goes for introverts too. If you are struggling to connect, therapy can help.
