You face relationship stress or conflict, work stress, life transition, anxiety, trauma, or unhealthy lifestyle. A warm, interactive, dedicated therapist, I use a cutting edge, whole person approach (neuroscience, mindfulness, attachment repair, trauma rescripting (EMDR)). We work to replace automatic reactivity to emotional triggers with authentic, grounded, compassionate responses. You learn to understand, express, & advocate for your genuine needs & core values - to feel more intimately connected to self & others. Clients say I "get it," and am "encouraging & uplifting." They feel seen, guided, & empowered. Even clients who have seen many other therapists find new hope, resources, & perspective in our work.
My specialties: (1) Building Healthier Relationships (Individuals & Couples) (2) Mindfulness-Based Therapies for Stress, Anxiety, Depression, Addictive Lifestyle, Eating Disorders (3) Life Transitions (4) Anxiety & Depression (5) Children & Partners of Narcissists (5) Trauma, Grief, EMDR Therapy (6) Entrepreneurs & Executives (7) Insecure Attachment - Avoidants, Love Addicts, Codependency etc. (8) Parenting Skills
