"Ready for less surviving and more flourishing? Less chaos and more ease? You feel like a hot mess, pouring so much energy into getting by. You wonder if everyone else got a cheat sheet for “having it all.” You want success at school or work, better connections with your partner, friends, and family, and a satisfying sex life. You wish you could have more fun. But past failures, disappointments, heartbreak, or regrets keep haunting you. They feel like mental and emotional shackles. Forget having it all, you just want to be enough. "

"Therapy is a unique experience for each person. It can help you learn about yourself, your relationships (both past and present) and how you interact with the world. It is a place of self healing and understanding. It is a place to find safety and refuge to manage stress,anger, guilt, anxiety, overwhelming feelings, trauma, interpersonal conflict, and significant life events. I work with children, teens, and adults to help address these issues. I am trained as a psychodynamic therapist and practice from a relational standpoint. I draw from several clinical approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy, attachment theory, and trauma focused therapy as appropriate."

"I focus on empowering you and your family to heal, cope, recover, and grow. My vision is that relationships form the basis for a balanced life. The concept of family therapy is almost simple. The idea is to consider the entire family/community context of how we develop, manage choices, and build relationships. For example, when working with children, I also include parents and siblings along the way. I will often even consider history as far back as the womb, e.g. was your mom anxious or stressed during her pregnancy with you? It is an adventure that you will author."
