My specialties include relational and developmental issues, anxiety, depression, separation and divorce, eating disorders, loss, grief and bereavement, trauma and PTSD, parenting and self-esteem issues.
Whether you are faced with a current challenge or trying to untangle a web of complicated issues from the past, we can work together to co-create a more meaningful life. I am a nurse psychotherapist in private practice in a residential setting with the option to work out of doors in a private garden area. I am eclectic in my approach, incorporating different modes of therapy designed to address the child, adolescent, couple, adult or family's issues and concerns. Since each person I see is unique in terms of what they are seeking in therapy, my approach is tailored to what that person presents.

Since becoming an Advanced Practice Nurse, I've obtained add'l experience & certification in mood changes surrounding (in)fertility, childbirth and parenting , and Financial Recovery.
We often come into our personal behaviors, thoughts, & feelings because they have helped us survive our own anxieties. As adults, often habitual patterns of behavior inhibit us from growing into the effective human beings we expect ourselves to become. Freedom, in its broadest sense, can be limited, depending on our own thought patterns, emotions, and our personal responses/reactions to our emotions. Together, we can look at patterns of behavior, private thoughts and feelings with empathy and without judgment. We can explore how freedom of thought and emotional reactivity can help you achieve your personal goals of actualization.

I have an adult practice for persons over the age of 18. If you are seeking therapy, you are interested in improving your life in the areas of relationships, communications and any other areas causing emotional discomfort or pain such as: work, marital or couple issues, parenting differences, losses, life phase adaptations, body image and decision making. Effectiveness of therapy depends on your active participation. It requires time, effort and regularity. Therapy involves evaluating your thoughts and behaviors, identifying stresses and working to modify both. The therapy relationship is a collaborative effort with strict confidentiality and respect for the client.

Perhaps a relationship or a job or parenting isn’t going well, or you just feel bad (or angry, or frightened). I try to be of use to people who are in pain. How do I try to help? By having open and honest conversations, good talks. It’s not so easy to do that – we keep our guards up for compelling reasons, because of our experiences of being hurt and used and misunderstood in the past. Often it seems obvious what we need to do, and yet impossible to do it. In therapy we wrestle with the bind.

Life is far from perfect. Everyone experiences loss, unforeseen change, and anxiety provoking stress. When these stresses become so powerful that they interfere with our work, self-care, or relationships, it is important to remember that we are not alone and help is available. With bravery, you can seek help and begin to heal. My goal is to help those who are facing these difficulties. I received my psychiatric training at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Adult Psychiatry. With this experience, I am able to diagnose and treat a broad range of psychiatric illnesses, including but not limited to depression, anxiety, and eating disorders.

Perhaps you, or your child, are seeking medication management for anxiety, depression, or ADHD. Maybe you're trans/non-binary/gender-nonconforming and are tired of explaining everything to prescribers. Perhaps you're anxious or depressed about app dating or a recent kink or OnlyFans effort. Maybe, you're not out (or fully out) and need medication to help the anxiety.

I believe listening - and being truly heard - is one of the most powerful therapeutic experiences. We are social beings, and if we have become isolated, or feel misunderstood, even ignored, we suffer deeply. I bring a high level of attentiveness to my work as a psychiatrist that provides the crucial foundation on which true growth and change can occur. I want to hear your story, to understand how your suffering, whatever its form, has come to be in the present day.
