We all have a variety of emotions, and that's normal! It's when they interfere with functioning or turn into a long-lasting mood that we could use some help. Perhaps you feel anxious and depressed, or dissatisfied and upset in your relationships. Maybe you need support as you weather a storm in your life, or someone to help you get back on track with your normal functioning. The bottom line is you don't want your mood to derail your goals, your relationships, and your life.

Psychotherapy is an art and science providing individuals with an opportunity to heal and grow. In a confidential and caring environment I support individuals to face painful aspects of their lives, access their inner resources, and begin taking new and healthy steps into their futures. It is natural and necessary to grow and change throughout life. Individuals are called by life circumstances, relationships with others, or by an internal restlessness to relinquish old ways and to develop new abilities. In our work together, clients and I identify steps toward creating the future they want to live.

All of us have those moments in life where we finally "get" something, those times when everything finally makes sense. As a therapist it is a pivotal moment in the therapeutic process, as a parent it can be very rewarding to see this occur for your child, and as an individual, it can be the difference between getting stuck in a bad place and moving forward in your life. I work with individuals, children and couples who are facing life's stressors and are looking for the tools to improve the quality of their lives.

I believe in the Existential/Humanistic school of thought and the importance of making meaning in our lives. By meeting my clients in the here-and-now, I am able to work with them where they are presently, without going too far ahead of them or getting bogged down in the past. I’m collaborative, creative, and believe in an integrated approach when working with people. No single form of therapy works for all clients, so I am comfortable using different psychotherapeutic approaches. I believe that true psychological healing comes from the experience the client has with the clinician, so the relationship itself is of great value
