I work with individuals and families facing stressors such as life transitions, emotional and behavioral concerns, anxiety, depression, separation and divorce, blended families, parent child relationships, as well as identity, personal, and relational growth. My training as a MFT has helped me develop a collaborative, systemically informed therapy style. I believe clients are the experts in their own lives, and I can serve as a warm, empathetic and non-judgmental presence to facilitate exploration and self growth.

In over 20 years of practice I have specialized in anxiety disorders and depression - working with individuals, couples and families. Life is forever changing, which can be both exciting and stressful. Transitioning into or out of marriage, loss of a loved one, job change or even retirement are all possible triggers for anxiety and or depression. Specific phobias can prevent you from making important life decisions, as you may try to avoid situations that pose too great a fear. While depression or anxiety can prevent you from connecting with others, therapy can be a safe place to do so with guidance, support and acceptance.

As an outsider, it would appear that you have it all figured out. You performed well in school, scored an awesome job, and even nabbed an amazing partner. You've got it all! But then why do you feel like crap all the time? It's like your body is in a constant state of panic while your brain is in perpetual crisis mode. "What's wrong with me?!" you wonder. People tell you that you're fine, but you can't shake this feeling that at any moment, this life that you've worked so hard for is about to come crashing down. You keep a smile plastered on your face but inside you're silently screaming. You can't keep this up for much longer.

When the path we are traveling in this environment becomes difficult to follow or recognize, therapy can be your compass. The COMPASSionate environment of the therapeutic setting and relationship can help restore your inner sense of direction.
