Do you need to find a non-judgmental environment where you can address the most intimate or overwheming issues impacting you and/or your relationships? Together, we can search for the solutions that can help you be the "you" you've always desired. Or the "you" that you forgot - or never knew - existed.

My clients describe me as a calming presence who provides empathy, humor, and skills that give results. Most of my clients come in with emotions that feel overwhelming and, with therapy support, find that they can master new strategies, reduce the frequency of therapy, and then "graduate" to sessions scheduled as needed.

I generally work with individuals/couples dealing with painful emotional experiences related to their interactions with others, whether in romantic relationships, family, friendships, or in their work environment. This could involve a continuous sense of loneliness, feeling misunderstood, or experience of sadness and worries/fears. Such difficulties have a deep impact on people's lives and often interfere with one's ability to feel satisfied, despite achievements in other areas. I enjoy working with clients who are curious about themselves."
