My Ideal Client

Respect, compassion and empathy are the cornerstones of my counseling practice as it is a core belief of mine that every person is doing the best with the tools they were given. In work with individual adults, we may well explore your life experiences, working to understand your relationship with yourself others so that daily life can feel calmer and more fulfilling.

My Approach to Helping

I utilize multiple therapeutic modalities based on each client's needs. During adult individual sessions, you are offered the opportunity to explore underlying struggles, better understand yourself, find deeper purpose, and make more space for joy in your life. I also work with parents and caretakers, helping them develop strategies to support their child's ability to identify and verbalize their thoughts and feelings aloud; learn healthy tools to help them get their emotional needs met; and to support the development of the skills they need to manage the feelings that may be overwhelming them.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

With over 15 years of experience, I have worked in multiple settings providing compassionate support coupled with real-life tools and strategies to help individuals and families in need. As both a mother and a therapist, I bring to this work both immense compassion as well as a deep understanding of complexities underlying many relationships and I feel honored to be able to offer support to individuals and families as they navigate the huge ups and downs of life's complex journey.

Techniques I Use


  • Somatic Therapy (Body Centered) External link

    In my work, I may employ components of ​Compassionate-Based Mindfulness, Attachment-Based Therapy, Inner Child Work, and Somatic Therapy. I utilize these approaches in order to help individuals explore the experiences that shaped them and the impacts these experiences have had. Work in these modalities also helps individuals foster a new, more compassionate relationship with themselves and others.

  • Attachment Theory External link

    Learning to understand our early attachment experiences and how they shaped our current relationship dynamics.

  • Family Systems External link

    We will utilize Family Systems approach in order to identify patterns of interactions and work to implement new, more helpful ways of communicating and interacting.

Issues I Treat


  • Women's Issues External link

    Women face unique challenges which may include but are not limited to restrictive gender norms as well as inequality on multiple levels both within and outside of their family systems. If interested, women are allowed the space in individual sessions to explore their own unique experiences as women and to discover and build upon their inherent power and value.

  • Parenting External link

    Supporting parents and caretakers in developing and implementing tried and tested strategies and mindsets that support their child's mental and emotional well-being. This work may also involve deepening your understanding of yourself and your past experiences in order to strengthen your ability to support your child when they are in need.

  • Relationship / Marriage Issues External link

    Though I don’t provide couples therapy, I do provide individuals therapy with a focus on improving relationships, particularly familial relationships. In sessions, you will be provided the opportunity to explore theses relationships, working to build tools and mindsets to help you and your loved ones thrive.

  • Anger Management External link

    Helping individuals and families identify and work to manage feelings of anger through mindfulness tools as well as through working to increase each individual's sense of safety and connection with one another.

  • Adjustment Disorder External link

    Along our journey through life, we often experience a stressor or series of stressors that may be understandably overwhelming. In sessions, individuals unpack these experiences, identify and process the affects they've had and build tools to help them manage both the emotional and logistical consequences of these stressors.
