What do you view as a key component of the therapeutic relationship?

Trust.

In what ways do your life philosophy and treatment philosophy overlap?

To be sure, I have stumbled in my attempts to be the person I aspire to be. But I'm proud of my accomplishments. The parent, friend, partner, and professional I have become is imperfect, but always seeking improvement. My personal motto is a quote from the Dalai Lama to, "Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible."

If you could pick one movie or book that influenced your approach to therapy, what would it be and why?

“Every relationship worth keeping sustains, at the very least, splintered glazes, hairline fractures, cracks. And aren’t these flaws the prerequisites of intimacy?” - Stephanie Kallos I would choose the book, "Broken for You," by Stephanie Kallos. The book juxtaposes the lives of two women -- one who is desperately coming to terms with her past -- and another who is healing from a trauma in the present. The message in the story is that, with all our wisdom and deepened compassion, we are worth more broken. This message is so optimistic. It celebrates the way in which we humans, despite what we may think, are not damaged goods after negative experiences, trauma, or hurt. I want this to be the belief I instill in every client I have the honor in working with.

Work History

I have been an activist, caretaker, and clinician since 1993. Though I'm young at heart, I tend towards a nurturing, motherly vibe as a therapist. I believe we all need to be listened to, cared for, and treated with kindness. My background has primarily been with women and children in foster care and adoption. I have fostered five kids alongside my own, three biological children. I also truly enjoy working with couples. My husband and I have been together for 33 years, and I recognize the challenges and benefits of being in a long-term partnership. If you choose to work with me, I promise to bring an extensive background as a clinician and an open, caring ear to each session.
