Individual Therapy


You Deserve The Life You Want.

  • Are you feeling stuck in a fear cycle and don’t know why or how to get out of it?
  • Looking for lasting intimate relationships?
  • Feeling anxious or stressed at work and/or in life?
  • Past traumas keeping you from reaching your full potential?
  • Do you suffer from low self-esteem or depression?
  • Are you going through a rough transition, a birth of a new child, divorce or separation, or struggling in career?

I create a space of understanding and care so I can help you gain more awareness of self-destructive patterns that may show up in relationships with others or even with yourself. Judgmental self talk may be getting in the way of meeting your personal goals leaving you feeling alone, unmotivated or scared of taking chances.

Together we will work to discover your true inner voice and self to create the changes you want to become more connected to your life and to your relationships.

I integrate Insight, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy,  Attachment Theory, with Mindfulness, Somatic Experiencing and Affect Regulation to build tools to support individuals in gaining relief from anxiety and panic, stress, depression, loss, relationship issues, betrayals, trauma (sexual, emotional, injuries, incidental) among other challenges.

I use EMDR as a powerful tool to help you heal and change the way your trauma experiences have impacted you and your beliefs about yourself, so you can get out of the clutches of fear and into a more productive and empowered life.

Curiosity and compassion guide our work.  Expect innovative and creative; dynamic and healing to meet your goals and dreams.
