I help clients to experience lasting freedom from anxiety through the latest techniques in neuroscience, psychology, and somatic experiencing. I utilize a Brainspotting approach that promotes rapid and effective change for my clients and helps them to live anxiety-free.
Brainspotting is a powerful, focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing, and releasing core neuro-physiological sources of emotional and physical pain, and unhealthy coping mechanisms associated with PTSD. It allows the client to channel the healthy "head" knowledge they possess to transform debilitating traumatic memories and the negative beliefs they feel in relation to the incident.
I graduated from The Relational Center after three intensive training years in both Relational and Gestalt therapy. I have practiced from this perspective since 2010 and I continue to receive training and experience in this area. Relational therapy is truly a place where I can teach you how to be in relation with me, and you can teach me how to be in relation to you. Through this experience, we both learn how to connect better with others and with ourselves.

Transpersonal, otherwise understood as spiritual, is a way to connect to the deepest part of ourselves. The area where I find the deepest spiritual meaning is helping you discover and develop your own purpose and life meaning.
Connecting to true purpose is a process. It's much easier to explore with support from a specialist. I have a history of helping people get off the 9-5 hamster wheel and build a life around the unique purpose they were created for. Purpose seeking can feel like a dead end when you have bills to pay. But a meaningful day-to-day life is just around the corner through prioritizing your gifts.
As a relational and gestalt therapist, I am present in the room. I find that people of color, millennials, adolescents, and LGBTQIA+ identifying individuals respond well to my approach because I can hold complexity and honor intersectional experiences. I am trained, educated, and experienced in working with people who are skeptical of therapy. Family, sex, spirituality, race, age, and many other aspects might feel important to you. Confidentially, we can explore any areas you wish.
10 years of experience working with autistic and aspie children, teens, and adults. I currently work with verbal adult clients to help them address chronic anxiety that impacts their quality of life. I provide significant neuroscience psychoeducation to the families I work with and also collaborate with other practitioners on the team. I am highly experienced and specialized in my approach which was developed over many years in both therapeutic and educational settings.
