Sometimes life is just hard; it hurts and things just don’t seem fair or right. Perhaps you are experiencing loss, a struggle, dealing with grief, setbacks in life, feelings of sadness or despair, anxious or just unsure of how to cope. Life feels upside down. While such feelings are difficult and real, pain and growth in life can coexist. What is most important is, today you have taken a positive first step seeking support. You have made a choice to do something different with your life. Our mind, which means our thinking, our brain and our body serve as indicators of what's working or not. Thinking gets stuck or we miss signals.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have experience working with adolescents, adults, and families for over 8 years. As a therapist, I believe that we have most of the tools we already need to make change. Therapy is simply a place where these tools can be identified and strengthened. I also believe people make lasting change through interpersonal relationships. Effective therapeutic treatment occurs through a meaningful, empowering, and reparative relationship. In therapy, I focus on relationships and how these impact our past & present relationships. I have experience with trauma, anxiety, depression, and attachment issues.

While a specific problem may bring you in, I believe that my clients are often helped by gaining insight into (and ultimately, mastery over) long-standing patterns in relationships, feelings, or behaviors. This approach (called insight-oriented, psychodynamic or psychoanalytic treatment) helps to create lasting change, in addition to symptom management that is part of all therapeutic approaches. My experience working with children and families is particularly helpful even to adult clients, who often wish to explore how early experiences have influenced their present-day lives and relationships.

CURRENTLY NOT ABLE TO ACCEPT NEW CLIENTS. I have spent a career helping individuals and families who are struggling with life stress and life changes. Many of my clients are in the process of adapting to a new culture, making major life transitions or dealing with issues after living abroad for many years. These transitions can easily leave you feeling sad, anxious, and isolated, and can change the way you feel about your life and your relationships. I can help bridge the challenges you are facing with creating a life that feels more settled, satisfying and meaningful.

You don't have to struggle alone in your difficulties. You can access encouragement and strength to live well. I offer a safe harbor and secure relationship for you to discuss your needs and problems. I enjoy working with people who feel stuck in negative situations or relationships, but feel puzzled about how to improve or change them. Collaboratively, we solve problems and/or rework the patterns that perpetuate the negative situations. We would explore any contributions of the past to the present so you can detach from the old patterns. Eventually, you will feel freer and more empowered to make desired choices in life.

Both children and adults can get stuck and need support from a therapist to grow into a happier place. Though it is a universal experience, it can be difficult to navigate alone. During sessions you will receive unconditional acceptance and the support you need to heal and grow. New ways of thinking and relating then lead to emotional well being. In my practice I provide individual and family therapy for children, adolescents and adults.

I believe therapy is about empowering individuals, couples, and families to resolve their unique issues by gaining a better understanding of themselves, others and their current situations. I also work with individuals to identify underlying issues that effect one's sense of self and unsatisfying relationships. Goals for many of my clients include identity development, increasing self-esteem, experiencing more meaningful relationships, gaining a stronger understanding of themselves, finding a sense of fulfillment and meaning in life, and resolving longstanding issues that keep them from achieving their desires and goals.

My clients want to connect to others but are afraid. They've learned in childhood that even those that are supposed to love you don't always treat you well. Yet, their deepest desires are to be seen, heard, and accepted. My clients often carry shame or guilt, and also know deep down they have immense strength and resiliency. They have the desire to move forward and live a fulfilled life, but feel stunted, stuck, or frustrated. Does any of this sound or feel familiar? Great news: it doesn't have to be this way! Reach out to me! Together, let’s explore and create a path forward—a healthy way forward—so that you can thrive.

It can be challenging to connect with the right therapist and I can assist you in the process. I will speak with you briefly over the phone to determine if we should schedule an in-person meeting. I view the first few sessions as a consultation period where we work together to determine if I can help you to reach your goals. I will facilitate a conversation about how the beginning of therapy is feeling and will offer additional referrals as needed.

**I am currently offering Teletherapy only!** As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I bring a systems perspective to my work, meaning that I consider not only the individual difficulties each client is struggling with, but also the way those challenges affect (and are affected by) their families, friends, work or school, and other important aspects of their lives. My goal is to use the language and activities that are meaningful and helpful to each client to build a trusting relationship from which clients can identify patterns in their life they would like to change, and to assist clients in creating that change in a healthy way.
