Through honest and warm communication I create an environment where clients can feel supported and cared for throughout our work together. My specialties include anxiety disorders, trauma and related disorders, depression and mood disorders, and sports performance and injury recovery. I work with adults 18-year-old and older.

***Practice Currently Full -- Not Accepting New Clients** I help individuals gain confidence in their roles as parents and in their careers without compromising their well-being. My clients struggle like you do. Despite being organized, compassionate for others, and high-performing in their work, life can feel challenging. They have always been able to do things well, but have come to realize that balancing parenthood and career creates complicated challenges with their partner, parents, work, and even with themselves. Like my clients, you deserve to feel confident even in the midst of demands & all the unknowns of life.

You might have become tired of the nagging stress, the strong emotions, the complexity of navigating relationships, or the feeling that something is holding you back from reaching your full potential. Despite all of this, a part of you wants to feel better and move forward. After all, that is why you are taking this major step of seeking help at this moment in your life.

Most of us do the best we can with the resources we have. Sometimes we think no one understands our worries & fears. If open to it, we want to work with a therapist when our usual ways of relating aren't helping & we feel stuck, anxious, angry or depressed. Therapy often helps provide insight into our strengths & internal resources we already have to help navigate challenging times. In sessions, I focus on working with clients to unlock this strength to steer their lives in the direction they want. I bring curiosity, warmth, respect, & empathy to my sessions.

*Practice Currently Full* Life can feel really overwhelming at times, especially when you are trying to manage the daily grind, while also being present in your personal and professional relationships. When you have a busy and demanding life your personal relationships often take a back burner and it’s hard to deal with problems effectively in the moment. Sometimes it’s easier to numb out with unhealthy habits like over drinking, over or undereating, scrolling social media, or overworking. But, eventually these habits leave you feeling more stressed and disconnected, and problems that once appeared small snowball into larger issues.

In today's busy world, it's hard to find peace of mind. Many of us as a result, are overly stressed and experience negative effects of that stress, such as anxiety and depression. I believe that seeking help and opening up to another individual takes a great deal of bravery. Because of that, I have a tremendous amount of respect for the individuals I work with.
