"I did then what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better." -Maya Angelou. Therapy is a collaborative and supportive journey where we will work together to help you learn practical skills and tools, and to help you to view yourself and others in a more accurate and nonjudgmental light. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) interventions to address thoughts or behaviors that may be negatively impacting your emotions and relationships, and/or getting in the way of achieving your goals.

I’ve enjoyed working as a psychologist for over 20 years and my clients teach me a great deal as they trust me with their therapeutic process. The vulnerability and confidence they share with me is a privilege and a gift, as well as a deep responsibility. I realize that making the decision to see a therapist is often a long and challenging one. It’s scary to ask for help and my goal is to help you feel as safe as possible, while working through the concerns that you need assistance with. I provide HIPPA Compliant Video sessions for all clients, so you can have therapy sessions from the comfort and privacy of your home or office

I work with Individuals, Couples, adolescents, and persons identifying as LGBTQI, who feel as if they need assistance figuring out their personal barriers to success and happiness. I provide assistance to those who may need to overcome generational stigmas or traumas that have left them with negative self thoughts, mood issues, thinking and behaviors. In todays society we face a daily onslaught of emotional and physical triggers, just by reading the news or figuring out sheltering in place during a pandemic, with the kids home! I get it, and I can help balance your emotions, priorities and self-care, in the midst of all the chaos.

My practice is rooted in the belief that there is power in knowing and telling your own story. Who are you? Where did you come from? What's important to you? Let's work together to untangle your story, identify your strengths, goals, passions, and barriers; and make you the author of what comes next. I work with people who want to make positive changes, but feel paralyzed by stress, fear, indecision, or old habits. I can also help you learn concrete strategies for managing uncomfortable thoughts, emotions, transitions, health conditions or problematic relationships.

Are you living a life of "quiet desperation"? Get to the bottom of your problems by connecting with yourself. Psychotherapy can help identify and overcome blocks that prevent you from being your real self. Are you repeating patterns from childhood despite your best efforts not to? Those patterns were likely formed early in childhood as a survival mechanism and now that you no longer need those patterns, they feel like a prison. Psychotherapy provides the key that opens the door. If you are afraid that you cannot do this, please do not sell yourself short and give yourself a chance.

Is your marriage or partnership showing signs of stress? Are you not sure if blending families is a good idea? Over 60% of blended families in the U.S. with children do not succeed and negatively impact children's mental health. I help couples in conflict or who have grown apart (especially in blended families), create a more loving home using evidence-based methods, including the Gottman Method, and Bader-Pearson Couples Therapy. I utilize compassion- and mindfulness-based methods to improve your parenting AND your partnership at the same time, while addressing the underlying causes of conflicts.
