Life sure can throw you some curveballs, can't it? If you're going through a difficult life transition, or just haven't been feeling quite like yourself lately, working with a therapist can help. It can be difficult to see your problems clearly and work through them effectively when you're "in the muck." I enjoy helping clients through difficult times, whether they are circumstantial or mood-related. I work primarily with adults who are experiencing depression or anxiety and couples with relational difficulties. I have specialized training treating trauma and working with entertainment industry professionals and creatives.

Most people I work with want similar things: to acquire insight into their lives, to identify the barriers that are holding them back and to develop the ability for change. My experience and training is in insight-oriented, relational psychotherapy and executive/career coaching. Whether you are grappling with anxiety, depression, past traumas, relationship problems, life transitions or finding a place in a culture that is not welcoming to you, I create a safe, confidential environment to explore the issues you are struggling with.

Establishing a meaningful therapeutic connection is the foundation for learning how to improve one's quality of life, develop healthy relationships and cope more effectively with life stressors. Through the therapeutic relationship, I work together with my clients to address and resolve various psychological symptoms and underlying concerns to help them lead healthier lives. I specialize in treating individuals who may be having difficulty coping with present life problems or trying to manage living with the impact of traumatic experiences. I believe that developing healthy coping skills and processing underlying issues leads to a relief in symptoms and an ability to re-engage in life.

People come to my office with a variety of concerns related to relationships, identity, spirituality, career, self-development, or life purpose. Others may be seeking relief from trauma response patterns, anxiety or depression. In a rapidly changing and tumultuous world, people often feel comforted by the presence of a therapist who can provide a safe enough space to understand themselves, resolve conflicts, and live with more coherence and freedom from unfulfilling relational patterns. I listen with an intuitive and compassionate heart and give you tools to navigate through stressful times with greater resiliency and embodiment.

Speak your heart, live your truth! Are you feeling overwhelmed with the direction of your life? Is your job not emotionally or financially satisfying? Do you find yourself having difficult, short-lived relationships, or worse - none at all? Is depression and/or anxiety wearing you down? It is my experience that our difficulties and problems are primarily determined by reactions to how we think and feel. I can help you understand how your thoughts and feelings prevent you from getting what you want, and then help you find ways of creating more success in the areas you desire to change.

My priority is to understand how your symptoms of anxiety and low self-esteem are affecting your relationships and overall sense of self. Once established, we can peel back the layers one by one and create some movement in your life and in your relationships.

Hello and welcome. So let's start by dispelling the common misconception that therapy is for the weak and broken. This could not be more untrue. Therapy is for the bold and intrepid. Therapy is for those who are unwilling to accept how things are and choose instead to brave the roads less traveled in search of something better. So whether your dissatisfaction lies in patterns that you can't seem to break free of, turbulent relationships with partners, family or friends, or in the daunting challenges posed by depression, anxiety, grief et al., your insistence for change not only should never be shamed, it should be deeply admired.

Therapy for COMEDIANS dealing with anxiety and depression. Being a comedian isn't easy. While your friends are getting married, having children and buying mansions back home, you’re schlepping yourself to open mic nights and chasing your dream, well at least before the pandemic. You’re emotionally vulnerable on stage and worry about going viral for the wrong reasons. It’s hard to share these fears with others. Comics get it but they’re too busy doing shtick rather than listening to you. And if you’re a female comic, it's worse because you’re mostly surrounded by male comics and battling lame societal stereotypes. I can help.

Relationships are everything––our relationship to ourselves, our relationship to others and to the world around us. We have an immense capacity to heal in relationship and in the right conditions we can grow and thrive. The famed psychologist Carl Jung wrote that we, “walk in shoes too small," meaning we limit our own potential, whether we are conscious of it or not. In that sense, the work of therapy is to broaden ourselves and fully embody the potential that awaits each of us. We aim to skillfully and artfully help you through whatever it is that brings you here to both surrender and grow into a more full and satisfying life.
