About

"Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" (Mary Oliver) -- This question lies at the heart of my work, with my goal being to help clients live more authentic and connected lives through self-awareness, resilience and positive change. My approach is flexible, interactive and solution-oriented. I bring a mindful perspective to psychotherapy and tend to see life transitions as opportunities for transformation and growth. My clients have said that my calm demeanor and my careful, empathic listening promote a safe and reflective environment, fostering self-compassion, self-awareness and change.
My diverse practice focuses on grief/loss, anxiety, depression, relationships, work identity, life transitions, among other issues. I specialize in reproductive health and value working with clients coping with pregnancy loss, infertility, assisted reproduction, and postpartum issues. I am interested in the creative process and have trained as a coach.
I draw upon a variety of perspectives -- integrating mindfulness practice, narrative therapy, CBT and DBT techniques, while also considering the influences of early experiences through the lens of attachment and psychodynamic theories. Please feel free to contact me to see whether my approach might be a good fit for you. I look forward to being in touch!
