I work well with clients who seek to improve relationships, are coping with work-related stressors, suffer from anxiety, depression, traumatic histories, and chronic illness. Life is not always easy; we work together to improve what is possible and to accept what is not possible. While being "positive" has its benefits, there are times one must be realistic and allow the experience of negative feelings -- to learn to cope with sadness, anger, and disappointment. Clients often feel shame about their struggles; I seek to eliminate that shame and help clients accept their humanity and vulnerability as well as inner strengths.

One focus of my practice is female empowerment. After years of work with women, I have come to the realization that women are still subject to unacceptable levels of gender oppression more powerful than they realize; this impacts women's lives in myriad destructive ways, particularly causing low self esteem.

That said, men are very welcome in my practice (and I believe I work well with men who suffer from work and relationship-related stressors, probably the two most common reasons men seek treatment). I offer sessions online via Skype (and other platforms). Some insurers cover telemedicine (i.e., Cigna).
