What I Do

My primary focus is in my practice is individual therapy, and I also offer therapeutic private/small group yoga sessions and online-based coaching. I specialize in working with adults and older adolescents who are struggling with trauma, relational issues, depression, and anxiety, or who desire a deeper connection with self, purpose, and meaning.

With the goal of delivering a holistic treatment approach of mind + body integration and trauma resolution, I use a variety of modalities including EMDR, clinical hypnotherapy, mindfulness-based therapies like Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), yoga (including trauma-sensitive yoga) and other body-based and experiential modalities. When appropriate, I support my clients in exploring spirituality and/or integrating therapy with their 12-step work.

Where I specialize:

  • I love working with high-achieving women who know how to "check all the boxes" for external success, but need help connecting to a deeper sense of self, and challenging perfectionism and self-criticism.

  • As a Certified Hypnotherapist (CHT), I am passionate about getting beyond the conscious mind to create shifts in the subconscious mind, which is responsible for the vast majority of our behaviors and emotions.

  • As a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT) trained by IITAP, I focus on working with spouses/partners of sex addicts, and women with compulsive or unhealthy relationship/intimacy patterns. 

I'm not currently running any groups, but I'll update this space when I have group or workshop offerings. For more about what I do, check out the pages under "therapy" in the navigation bar above, and my FAQ page for information about my rates and other common questions about therapy.
