"Straight-forward honest therapy. No therapy gameplaying. Therapy starts with a mutual commitment to work together with honesty and trust. I work with you as a real person, who has a positive sensitivity, intelligence, insight, skill, and caring that can help you do the work you need do. I will not try to fit you and your life and experiences into particular theories about who you should be. Making it work for you is my goal in therapy. We won't try to fit you and your experiences into some neat theory, but will seek to find the logic of your life and how you came to be the person you are- and be in the relationships you are in."

Every patient brings a unique life story to the work and I am committed to understanding and recognizing each individual's strivings and challenges. In addition to psychotherapy, I also provide psychological assessment services for children, adolescents and adults in my work, and believe the process of assessment brings much clarity to what are often confusing and misunderstood difficulties."

"The early years of parenthood can be simultaneously some of the most rich and challenging in our lives. My passion is in helping new parents through the big choices and feelings in raising a new human being, while also nurturing the parent, partner and person they most wish to be. There are often unforeseen challenges that occur at the very time we are most depleted and stretched thin, and difficulties in putting words to and communicating our needs to our partner. I'd love to help you feel supported and understood so that you can parent from a place of greater strength and confidence."

Each of us has our own strength and wisdom which we don't see when we are troubled. My goal is for us to work together to rediscover those qualities.

You watch as your child navigates intense feelings, difficult decisions, and complicated relationships; and it can feel like the last person they want help from is you.

I help clients regain that innate health through deep listening and non-judgmental feedback. I work deeply with current thoughts, beliefs and feelings about one's self to uncover deep seated self-judgment that blocks happiness. Anxiety, depression and unhappiness transform into greater peace and understanding. In turn, self awareness is enhanced which leads to greater understanding, compassion and empathy for self and others."
