I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with training in Anthroposophic Psychology and over 15 years of experience working with diverse populations and issues. I have worked on both prevention and treatment with adolescents, teens and adults struggling with mental health concerns, chronic medical difficulties, addiction, trauma and behavioral problems. I take an Anthroposophical approach in assisting individuals and families therapeutically. Inspired by the works of Rudolf Steiner on the physical, soul and spiritual development of the human being, I offer unique insight into the struggles adolescents, teens and adults encounter on our journeys to becoming whole and satisfied people.

We all hear that you ‘just need to love yourself more.’ Something easy to do intellectually, but very difficult in practice. How do you actually do that? I don’t have any singular answer to the question, but I can explore with you what gets in the way of loving yourself the way you want and living life as your most authentic self. My work isn’t about just eradicating symptoms, but creating a deeper understanding of what drives our symptoms, and how we have learned to adapt to trauma, overwhelm, and loss by creating strategies and patterns that might no longer serve us.

Pregnancy and the postpartum period can be a joyous, fulfilling time for some women. For many others, it is riddled with feelings of depression, anxiety, and confusion. These stressful emotional experiences can be unexpected and unfamiliar, or they can be a return of past symptoms; whatever the case, they interfere with a woman's ability to function and experience daily fulfillment. As a Psychologist and member of Postpartum Support International, I aim to instill hope in women who are suffering that these symptoms are temporary and treatable.

Finding safety and the conditions in which to explore all aspects of your experience are vital components in the therapeutic process. The introduction of art, play, and somatic therapies may provide additional ways to bring creativity to the exploration of the material at hand. I work with children and adults and I specialize in exploring and reconnecting to one's core self. Trauma, illness, and anxiety can disrupt this essential connection - it can be regained.

As a clinical psychologist for over 20 years, I help people move through their current challenges and ultimately toward that which matters most to them. Clients often come to therapy for anxiety, depression, grief, or major life changes such as retirement, parenthood, divorce, or serious health problems. Naturally, people want to feel relief from the discomfort and sense of isolation that these issues can cause. But I find that people also want to feel more resilient, closer to those they love, kinder to themselves and more committed to their well-being. In psychotherapy, you can enjoy the support and the opportunity for this.

As a trauma-informed therapist, I know that symptoms such as anxiety, depression, addiction and phobias are often expressions of unresolved grief and trauma. I support my clients to look at themselves and their relationships with honesty and love in order to create more freedom and connection in their lives. I believe that by bringing compassion, awareness, and just enough humor, we can engage our inner wisdom to shift patterns that have become stuck in our bodies and consciousness. I have specific training in serving LGBTQ+ communities, and am a trans-affirming therapist.

The bumper sticker on my car says DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU THINK. This statement sums up one of the most important wishes that I have for my clients and supports the work that we will do together. It is my opinion that our beliefs about ourselves and the world are our most powerful tools for change (for good or ill) that we have. At your own pace, we will explore the ways that your beliefs affect your thoughts and feelings, and work toward your goals, both great and small.

Clients that I work with are looking to explore the difficult emotions that they are carrying & process events that they have experienced that are impacting their every day life. Stress, worries, & life satisfaction are often what bring clients to therapy however processing the needs not being met & how to shift our awareness to engage in life in a way forward are what I often support clients in working on. Processing trauma & past events can be a focus as this can help to change perspective, increase emotional vulnerability, explore relationships dynamics as well as increase the awareness that trauma has on the whole body.

I help folks dealing with stress, depression, anxiety, trauma, chronic health problems, and relationship issues of all kinds. My clients tend to be creative, philosophical, or intellectual people, and often (like myself) were raised in more than one culture. While what brings people to therapy is usually a stressful event or persistent problem, beyond just helping to relieve their suffering in the short term, my hope is that they discover through our work a lasting satisfaction that comes from taking the time to review their lives carefully and understand themselves more deeply.

I believe that our moments of greatest struggle can also hold the most potential for growth and self-discovery. By giving ourselves a supportive space to explore the places that feel painful or stuck, we open ourselves to a wealth of information about our deepest desires, strengths, and wisdom. This makes it possible to live with greater self-compassion, freedom in our actions, and ease in our relationships. Whether you are navigating a significant life transition, suffering from anxiety, depression, or trauma, I am dedicated to providing a safe and respectful space to embark on this journey.

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.
