Change is hard. People often seek psychotherapy around change. They want to change. People in their life want them to change. Or some life change is affecting them in a meaningful way. Often, it's a combination. By working together I can help you in this challenge. I frequently work with adolescents and adults struggling with addiction in themselves or in their families. Many of my patients are addressing anxiety, depression, questions or challenges regarding their sexual orientation, infertility, life transitions, traumatic experiences or eating disorders and other compulsive behaviors. A lot of my patients are college or graduate students.

Resiliency, or grit, is an inherent quality. However, with transition comes stress, worry, and doubt. With timely and proper consultation, well-guided suggestions are often the simplest way to make quick and easy progress towards personal or professional change. Recovery from the occurrences of life is a process of study and practice. Learning and strategizing for health requires teamwork and vision. Supporting you to restore grit, develop skills, understand clinical interventions and build personalized strategies for wellness is my expertise and passion. Let's sit to explore, learn, laugh or cry, and let me coach your recovery.

In the beginning, I often help people with an immediate problem or crisis. My personal style is warm, supportive and interactive. I draw from cognitive behavioral techniques, which stress concrete, behavioral change. Gradually, I create a safe space where we can establish a trusting relationship. People begin to identify the patterns they want to change. They replace old behaviors with new ones.
