My goal is to help you live your life fully; no longer feeling bound by the experiences in your past. Our experiences change our brains. Family, relationships and trauma all affect how we perceive ourselves, others and our world. But just as trauma and other negative experiences can create patterns that can lead to anxiety, depression, anger, unhealthy relationships, addictions or underachievement...new experiences can change those patterns. I provide a safe, non-judgmental place to work with your memories, feelings and thoughts in new ways. Together we will work to create new experiences that change the patterns of your brain and of your life. I have a Ph.D. in Psychology and Neuroscience and this background gives me a deep understanding of how our brains work. I want to help you understand what is going on in your brain, so that you can feel more in control of your emotions and reactions. I specialize in working with people affected by long-term stress, anxiety, abuse, trauma and grief; as these experiences leave a deep impact on our brain and our lives. No two people are alike, and so there is not one standard treatment that will work for everybody. We will work together to find the therapeutic tools that work best for you. Some of the tools that I work with include: cognitive therapy, psychodynamic therapy, reprocessing of memories and mindfulness. In therapy, you should be able to discuss all aspects of your life without fear or judgment. I am kink-friendly and experienced in working with people in alternative lifestyles and relationships. I look forward to meeting you!
