Seeking out therapy is a brave act and a bold step in creating positive change in your life. Time and time again, I am amazed by the honesty, resiliency, and openness of my clients. I truly believe that we all have the capacity to change and transform our lives.
I work with individuals and couples who are experiencing anxiety, overwhelm, trauma, PTSD, grief, and relationship issues, as well as those who are simply seeking greater self-awareness and insight.
So often in life, we feel “stuck” and simply don’t know where to start. I work collaboratively with my clients to define their needs and goals, and tailor an integrative approach that works best for them. I am trained in various trauma healing modalities, including EMDR and Trauma Resiliency Model, and I enjoy teaching my clients concrete, practical tools that they can use to improve their daily lives.
My couples work blends elements of EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) and Gottman Method Couples Therapy. I believe in drawing upon my clients’ inherent strengths, and I am particularly interested in the link between the body and mind.
In addition to my counseling work, I am a certified yoga therapist (C-IAYT) and yoga teacher. Since 2001, I have taught yoga, mindfulness, and meditation in a wide variety of settings, including hospitals, and wellness centers, and a residential eating disorder facility. Prior to specializing in the wellness industry, I worked for many years as an actor in film and theatre. I have a great respect for the creative process and for the unique issues that artists, performers, and entertainment industry professionals face while pursuing their dreams and goals.
In our LGBTQ+ community, we all deserve a space to feel celebrated, seen, and heard. It is my goal to create a safe environment that empowers you to make changes that lead to a meaningful, authentic, and fulfilled life.
