My Approach

Does this sound like you? You criticize yourself for even the smallest mistakes. The voice in your head that says you aren’t good enough won’t leave you alone. So you veg out with TV, your phone, food or substances, or immerse yourself in work to get a break, but it's just a temporary fix - that voice always comes back. You try your best to keep your mind off things, but whenever you have down time, you're flooded with memories of the past or worries about the future. You don't know what to do with all these feelings. You wish you could just do something to make them all go away. Life can be better than this. Imagine feeling at home inside yourself - a sense of peace and wholeness you haven't yet been able to access. Imagine being able to stop fighting yourself and, instead, being your own best ally. It may be hard to see from where you are right now, but it is possible.

My Background

Working with me, you'll gain more than just coping skills - with warmth, humor and safety, I will guide you in the kind of transformative process that brings the lasting change you're hoping for from therapy. A third-generation therapist, my intuition has been honed by the wisdom of my elders, as well as by my participation in my own therapy and other healing practices. My primary modality is internal family systems therapy (IFS), an integrative approach that views human beings as complex systems of different aspects or "parts." Bringing these parts into better relationship with each other can create a huge spectrum of positive changes. I also incorporate attachment theory, somatic (body-based) and expressive arts modalities.
