About

I am an interactive therapist, interested in helping clients reduce symptoms of distress, usually anxiety or depression and explore with them the roots of their distress. I find whether it is addiction, eating disorders, chronic pain, or straight forward relationship issues, understanding the "why" as well as the "how" to fix it, helps the problem and symptoms subside. Clients that work with me finish therapy with a greater awareness of themselves which helps them avoid difficulties in the future as well as a host of healthy coping strategies to help get through the rough times ahead.
I have work with women in transition, infertility, miscarriage and postpartum depression and anxiety. I've worked with addictions, cancer patients and their families, eating disorders, and chronic pain. I help with parenting and school issues. I enjoy working with couples as well as individuals and a portion of my practice is working with adolescents.
I have special expertise in relaxation training, guided imagery and meditation, which I incorporate into the therapy when needed. I also am trained as a sex therapist. I think it t takes a lot of strength to reach out for help and it's the first step to taking care of yourself and/or your relationship. We will make a great team, let's work together.
