Do you feel unsettled, out of balance, or like you don't have a voice? Are you at a crossroads in your life and not sure which path to take? In the safety of my office, I help clients find their balance, gain insight, make intentional changes, heal and grow - as individuals and in relationships. I have found that empowering clients with practical strategies to incorporate into their daily living while supporting clients in doing the deeper work of increasing their understanding of themselves and their partners (for clients in couples counseling), ultimately leads to the most meaningful changes.

*I am currently not accepting new clients* Did you know that the quality of the relationship you have with your therapist is strongly linked to successful therapeutic outcomes? This is why my goal is to provide every person I see with an emotionally safe space, free of judgment. You want somebody who genuinely cares, who is curious and hopeful. I encourage people to explore new ways of thinking about their experiences and different ways of expressing themselves. I aim for the people I work with to leave each session feeling more empowered, with a sense of agency, and able to learn what they're capable of doing.

Pain is an unavoidable and a necessary part of life. But suffering -- especially prolonged, "punishing" suffering -- is not. So many people seeking therapy suffer from anxiety, depression, difficulties in relationships, and self-sabotaging behaviors. We use defenses to avoid our emotions. Ironically emotions aren't the SOURCE of pain but in fact are there to HELP us HEAL from the painful losses, hurts and challenges of life. You don't come to therapy to talk about your week. You come for relief from your suffering, for a chance to work through and find meaning in your pain and, just as with a broken bone, heal stronger and better!

I love working with kids (9 and up), adolescents, adults, and their families. I help my patients identify their own strengths and use them to overcome mental health challenges. I strongly believe that every child has the capacity to heal in their family environment, and that their parents deserve a compassionate and competent provider who can help them overcome difficult behaviors. I also work with adults, particularly those diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. My patients are typically suffering from extreme emotional and interpersonal dysregulation. I help them learn to regulate their emotions and mend relationships.

In over 20 years of practice I have specialized in anxiety disorders and depression - working with individuals, couples and families. Life is forever changing, which can be both exciting and stressful. Transitioning into or out of marriage, loss of a loved one, job change or even retirement are all possible triggers for anxiety and or depression. Specific phobias can prevent you from making important life decisions, as you may try to avoid situations that pose too great a fear. While depression or anxiety can prevent you from connecting with others, therapy can be a safe place to do so with guidance, support and acceptance.
