"Helping Women to Become their Best Selves: none of us wants to struggle but even with our best intentions & efforts we can find ourselves stuck, confused & in a position of self-doubt. As women, we are particularly vulnerable to blaming ourselves when things go wrong & we often feel pressure from all different directions. I help my clients navigate life's challenges with compassion, non-judgement & humor. We work on building up inherent strengths (yes you have them), coping strategies & making space for more adaptive ways of relating to the world. I provide direct & honest feedback within a supportive & relational framework."

"I specialize in treating anxiety and depression for teens and young adults. Therapy provides an opportunity to be completely yourself, without regard to the pressures or demands of the world around you. When you feel safe, you're more free to talk about change. I'll help you identify and build upon your strengths, and then support you in becoming more aware of patterns that hold you back from achieving your goals. I believe therapy is an important investment in health and will help you create patterns that form the foundation for a satisfied life."

"People turn to therapy when they are in too much emotional pain, stuck in intractable situations with intimate partners or at work, or acting in ways that are self-destructive or harmful to others. When other solutions have not worked, therapy offers a chance to address and change outmoded ways of being. The therapeutic relationship is key to this work. It offers the possibility of exploring new ways of relating to ourselves and others that can lead to a richer and more fulfilling life. The therapist must provide a place of safety and be a partner in this process."
