There is no agony like bearing an untold story inside of you.

About Therapy

Psychotherapy is a worthwhile investment in your future and overall health. We all do our best to manage life's challenges, but sometimes we reach a point where our usual strategies just stop working. When life starts to feel beyond our control, having an attentive, objective listener can be invaluable.

As your therapist, I offer a welcoming, nonjudgmental space reserved just for you.

Individual Therapy

I approach therapy as a collaborative process: your inner experiences are key to the work. My clinical approach is psychodynamic, relational/analytic, and experiential—I focus on helping you resolve the roots of your symptoms as opposed to behavioral interventions.

What does that look like? Depending on your circumstances, we might explore the impact of past events on your present relationships. We might explore your present-moment thoughts, emotions, or body sensations to deepen your understanding of a confusing situation. Or, we might examine how you tend to deal with your feelings and find healthier options for you. This can include mindfulness exercises, somatic (body-based) awareness, or good old problem-solving.

In our work together, the focus is on you: your history, your patterns, your emotional responses. By getting comfortable with your internal experiences and learning to work skillfully with them, you will make more informed and intentional life choices.

Everyone's story is unique, so your progress will depend on our chemistry together, your readiness for therapy, your ongoing commitment, and your goals.

What can I help you with?

My specialties include:

  • healing from childhood emotional abuse and neglect
  • clarifying needs in relationship
  • setting healthy boundaries
  • navigating difficult life transitions
  • releasing blocks that hinder career growth and creativity
  • embracing leadership as a purpose-driven social entrepreneur
  • finding meaning as a motherless daughter
  • building resilience to shame, rejection, and self-criticism
  • supporting changes that increase self-esteem and confidence
  • reflecting on issues of identity, purpose, and meaning

    Motherless Daughters

    A therapeutic support group for undermothered women

    Days and times TBA; contact me with inquiries.

    Losing a mother is one of the worst things a woman can go through. We may lose confidence in our ability to lead a fulfilling life, and can spend years feeling confused, abandoned, angry, alienated from our peers, numb, adrift, or profoundly bereft. Without enough support for our grief, life can feel overwhelming. 

    If you’re a woman who identifies as “motherless”—either through death, mental or terminal illness, or estrangement—join an ongoing process group for women who understand your challenges.

    In this group, you will:

    • Discover a safe, supportive space to connect with women like you
    • Share your story without shame
    • Find comfort and strategies for living through loss

    This group offers discussion, meditation, experiential exercises, and space to relax into community with women who can relate to profound loss. Topics include navigating milestones, cultural triggers, impact on relationships, ambiguous or anticipatory grief, and finding fresh meaning.

    A guiding resource for discussions (not required reading) is the book Motherless Daughters by Hope Edelman.
