There are moments in each of our lives when responsibilities, experiences, and feelings can become overwhelming. During some of these most stressful times, it can be difficult to figure out what to do next on your own. I hope that is where I can be of some assistance. I strive to provide a warm and comfort environment for you to come to therapy during times where it might feel challenging.
Much of my specialization aligns with a deep-seeded connection to women & their families, many of whom are “stuck” in the midst of transitions. Some navigating expected life-cycle stages (like “Empty Nesting” or job ambiguity), others are traveling (or meandering) through a hell of a surprise. Generally, those I work with the most are recognizing that Anxiety, Shame, or Stress has amplified due to their experiences.
As a therapist and yoga instructor– two platforms through which I share strongly my passions and dedication to work that I believe can encourage resilience and healing for all – I will support you in addressing the mind-body connection.
At times, stressful life situations can inhabit as physiological symptoms and you want might assistance in understanding managing these very real discomforts. For some, somatic (physical) expressions are derivatives of grief and loss. For others, it is due to chronic low self-esteem or an inner critic positioned from early childhood. For many, these kinds of representations equate to what we have come to identify as trauma.
Out of a collaborative, therapeutic rapport, you will be more prepared to clarify personal goals and make steps towards achieving them. This might mean building up your interpersonal relationships. Reducing social anxiety. Perhaps you are hoping to improve communication with loved ones. You might be in the midst of a significant life transition – anticipated or sudden – and are looking to approach this development more fluidly. I am here to listen and support you in moving through your life in a less painful way.
Most of the techniques I use stem from a core belief that each person has great potential to experience an enriched life. Much of my clinical orientation comes out of Narrative, Cognitive-Behavioral, Structural, and Intergenerational theory. I also encourage Mindfulness-Based techniques that cultivate self-awareness (in body and mind) and resiliency to handle change.
My fee is $95.00 per individual session and $110.00 for couples & families.
