About

It takes admirable courage to seek fuller understanding of ourselves and our struggles and to risk new ways of living. I provide a trusting, respectful setting to examine concerns thoughtfully. My approach is empathic, warm, and marked by compassionate curiosity about one's difficulties and beneficial ways to address them. I emphasize increasing awareness of the issues in question and developing coping responses that are useful, intentional, and aligned with one's needs and values. Successful psychotherapy is challenging, rewarding work aiming toward deeper self-awareness, genuine and fulfilling relationships, and consideration of situational factors that contribute to difficulties.
While I practice as a generalist, my particular areas of interest and expertise include sexual orientation, gender-related issues, grief/loss, body image/eating disorders, anxiety, depression, mindfulness, stress management, relationship dynamics/difficulties, adjustments related to life transitions such as aging and parenting, spirituality, and questions of identity and purpose.
I value examining underlying issues in depth and helping clients to develop helpful, effective strategies for dealing with stressors and difficulties. I believe that psychotherapy is ultimately beneficial in helping individuals to live well, to develop authentic and enriching relationships, and to find meaning and fulfillment in their lives.
