Navigating through life and its obstacles can be exhausting and overwhelming. Reaching out to ask for support can be difficult and yet the most important first step to creating change. Feeling nervous or cautious about that first step is normal and okay. I provide a safe, non-judgmental, and supportive atmosphere that gives space for you to express yourself openly and freely. My approach to counseling begins with fostering an open and safe relationship that promotes healing, growth, and perspective. I like to collaborate with each client to identify, set, and achieve goals to address their specific challenges and concerns.

I believe our most troubling attitudes and behavior are meant to protect us from real emotional threats or to help us achieve certain experiences that are vital to our growth. I help clients understand their experiences in the world in terms of these important functions. In dialogue with me clients come to recognize how their most important relationships have shaped the way they think, feel, and act in both desirable and undesirable ways. I strive to help clients discern their authentic needs, desires, and values so they can assert them with conviction in their daily lives.

The hardest part of overcoming a challenge is knowing where to start. In counseling, we can discover together what is getting in the way of living your best life. Whether you're struggling to manage emotions (e.g. anxiety, sadness), keep up with work/school, master your relationship with technology, or navigate recent life transitions, it can feel overwhelming at times to go it alone! I will work with you to identify your "stuck points", collaboratively create a plan to address the areas you want to work on, and support you in replacing approaches that don't work with ones that do. Change is hard but worth the effort!

I have 25+ years of experience in treating anxiety disorders (such as OCD, panic disorder, and phobias), depression, and difficulties related to psychological trauma. For the past 13 years, I have also been treating eating disorders and trichotillomania. I work primarily from a cognitive-behavioral perspective. This involves my client and me working as a collaborative team to determine what skills it would be useful for my client to learn and practice. This process tends to reduce distress and facilitates achieving a greater sense satisfaction, happiness, and meaning in life.

As a psychotherapist, I have more than 30 years experience providing clients a safe, non-judgmental environment where issues can be explored and difficult feelings can be identified and expressed. I specialize in working with individuals and couples whose difficulties in early relationships have created corresponding difficulties in the present, including feeling locked into negative patterns of relating, depression, anxiety, and loneliness. I provide my clients the opportunity to learn new more effective ways of communicating and relating that in turn can lead to positive changes in their lives.

I have one goal in therapy: your transformation. Why cope with a problem if you can eliminate it? Healing both the problem and its root cause creates lasting change. While traditional talk therapy can produce positive results, I have a broader therapeutic toolkit to help you rapidly heal troubling thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. In a first session, you can expect me to connect with you quickly and get to the root of the issues that concerns you. My style is relaxed, non-judgmental, I'm active in sessions and focused on producing significant, impactful results in the shortest time possible.
