About

I provide skilled and compassionate psychotherapy for adults of all ages who are dealing with difficult life challenges. Feel free to contact me if you are having emotional, personal, work, or relationship difficulties, and want a safe setting in which to address your problems. Your challenges may involve anxiety, depression, relationship or parenting issues, grief and loss, identity issues, or PTSD symptoms. I can guide you in addressing these concerns, achieving a broader understanding of yourself and your circumstances, and tapping into your inner resources.
I am a certified Internal Family Systems therapist. IFS is designed to help us accept and heal our seemingly disparate and varied parts. By working through unresolved pain, grief, and confusion, by accepting the truth of our personal experience, and by acknowledging our complexity as humans, we grow in confidence, wisdom and compassion.
I work one-on-one, and am committed to taking the time you need.
