Are you feeling anxious about how COVID-19 is impacting your life? Are you experiencing stress related to this unknown entity? Now is the right time to process these feelings and develop tools and strategies to address them. I am offering secure teletherapy to any client who wants to start therapy now, but is concerned about office visits. I help clients develop concrete strategies to relieve symptoms, while simultaneously exploring the root of their anxieties. Think of of therapy as filling a tool box that you take with you when you leave.

I view therapy as a collaborative process. It is a place to learn about yourself, how you relate to others, and the ways in which your thoughts, feelings or actions can inhibit your growth or help you meet your goals. My style is compassionate, client-focused, and interactive, informed by psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral schools of thought. I look forward to working with you to help you make real, positive changes in your life.

In life, there are times when we need to face challenging situations and make changes, but we may need help to think things through. I work from the perspective that all of us can bring certain strengths to bear and that we can benefit from self-understanding in order to use our strengths to the best of our abilities. Through a collaborative framework, I help people cope with the pressures of everyday life, transitions that are challenging and/or stressful as well as longstanding concerns such as learning difficulties, anxieties, mood problems, interpersonal concerns, and life transitions.
