Hello! I come to this work with a genuine sense of curiosity, compassion, humor and enthusiasm for getting to know you and your story. Therapy can build self-awareness and clarity which expands our capacity to navigate life’s challenges with greater adaptability, connection and authenticity. My theoretical approach is Person Centered, seeing you as the expert on yourself, and rooted in Attachment Theory which places relationships as central to health and well being. I use a variety of modalities depending on the needs of the client, and enjoy incorporating expressive arts as well as connection to nature as therapeutic tools.

Seeking help can be a difficult decision. It is my hope that coming to a safe and nonjudgmental place to start making changes in your life will be rewarding, insightful and motivating. I believe that we all have the capacity to make meaningful changes in our lives, but that sometimes knowing where to start can be a challenge. I strive to create a warm, supportive environment to explore what you want your life to look like and what is keeping you from living the life you imagine for yourself. I take a collaborative approach, meaning that sessions will be tailored around your strengths. (Email contact preferred for intial scheduling!)

My therapy is client centered, offering a safe, nonjudgmental therapeutic environment for work to take place. I generally start by getting to know you well. As you develop a sense of safety and trust and feel deeply understood by me, you will probably gain insights and relief in better understanding yourself. As we go, clients increase their awareness in themselves and their relationships with others. They become calmer, wiser, more confident, and empowered.

I am out of the country on a research sabbatical until July, 2018. I will be taking new clients after July. I work with depression, eating disorders, and relationship problems. I strive to provide a safe place in which individuals can begin to change old patterns of doing things. I strongly believe in our resilience and ability to heal from trauma and our own unskillful choices. No one wants to be miserable and stuck, but sometimes hidden forces contribute to emotional problems. Biological, psychological, and social factors can all play a part in creating emotional health.

Reaching out for support during challenging times can be difficult, especially when we are overwhelmed, stuck, uncertain or disconnected. Therapy can be a starting point in taking steps toward growth and healing. We must begin somewhere, and I believe we have the inner resources and capacity to create the life we want. I am honored to work with individuals who are ready to empower themselves and make conscious efforts in cultivating something different in their lives. Together, we will be curious about your past experiences, make sense of the present, and use your resiliency and strengths to help you discover a unique path forward.

Are you overwhelmed and looking for answers, but just don't know where to begin? Every individual has a story; so do families and communities. As we compile these accounts, we realize that the fragments form a collage; not the entire picture, but pieces which symbolize the possibility for a whole. Therapy can be a safe space for exploring and integrating the past in an effort to become more present. You are the expert in your own life experiences and I can be your partner in honoring that narrative.

I believe healing happens through connection—with ourselves and others. As a relationship-first therapist, it's my joy to help you find safety and love within yourself and the world around you. I work with individuals navigating anxiety, self-doubt, existential angst/depression, and changing life circumstances. I also work with endurance and mountain athletes who want a therapist that understands their lifestyle on the trail and beyond—from barriers to performing their best, body image and eating struggles, to navigating injury, burnout, and more.

I enjoy working with individuals who are on the verge of major life transitions, and supporting them as they find, develop, and come to celebrate their strengths and individual differences. Those transitions can be from adolescent dependence on their parents to young adulthood; the discovery and acceptance of gender and sexual identity; developing coping skills to manage chronic illnesses; and increasing independence and strengths after changes in relationships.

Do you feel stuck in communicating with your partner, having the same arguments over and over; you can't seem to work through things? I can help you identify that negative pattern, and learn to step out of it and rediscover love and happiness. I do that with couples by looking at the ways that they get stuck or disconnected. Maybe you are also struggling with feeling the need for more comfort or understanding or needing to regain lost trust. What you and I will do is look at what prevents those things from happening right now in your relationship.

Life is difficult to navigate in the best of circumstances. We often carry with us a past that influences how we interact with others, our perception of the way others interact with us, and the patterns we form in our relationships. You do not have to navigate these waters alone. Therapy can help support your individual, family and relationship goals. I understand it takes courage to ask for help and I want to make the process easy for you.

Lately, it seems the intimate spark between you and your partner is dim at best. Connecting positively has been tacked onto the long list of chores to do rather than being part of your relationship that fuels the fire. Maybe you're struggling with conflict, balancing life, knowing each of your needs, or a sex life that feels pleasurable. At best, you find yourself in an unsatisfying status quo. At worst, you find shame, anger, guilt, or sadness fighting over who takes center stage between the two of you. Regardless, you and your partner can no longer find each other in your intimate moments.

We are meant to share life's hardships with others, rather than be alone with our pain. So much suffering today stems from a sense of isolation and disconnection within our lives. I offer a therapeutic relationship based on unconditional acceptance and compassion; where you can feel support in creating healthier relationships, evaluate what you seek in life, and diminish pressures that hinder your growth and happiness. We live in a stressful, anxiety-provoking time. When we slow down and look at our own core values and how we would like to inhabit our lives, we give ourselves permission to make mistakes and grow.

People have an inner capacity for well being. Therapy simply helps to unfold this.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors.

Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the United States could cost between $100 and $200 or more. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship. Therapists in the United States are bound by the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which aims to protect sensitive health information. With very few exceptions, a therapist will only discuss their client with others when the client has given their written permission. The instances in which a therapist would be required to disclose personal information are: if a client poses a danger to themselves or others, if the therapist suspects the abuse of a child or an elderly or otherwise dependent adult, or if they are legally forced to by court order. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed with a client before their first session.
