I integrate cognitive behavioral, family systems and psychodynamic treatments that are personalized to each client and their needs.
Life is about feeling connected, sharing in the joys and sorrows, and striving for something better, a better you. Therapy is a place where you can share and explore the challenges and achievements that make each of us an individual. I believe that forming a safe, non-judgmental relationship is fundamental to therapy and what guides the healing process. We work together in order to gain insight and learn healthy coping skills in managing challenges faced and the feelings associated with them. I believe that the most difficult job is working on ourselves but it is also the most rewarding.

I use a holistic approach, a mix of CBT, mindfulness, and psychodynamic exploration.
My goal as a therapist is to help you examine your lived experience in a safe and inspiring way. In addition to my clinical experience I provide an environment that can be humorous and fun as well as vulnerable and challenging. We will identify the desired and undesired aspects of your habits and beliefs and attend to them with compassion and accountability. I am an active therapist and will help you connect the patterns and themes present in your psyche, in addition to your past and present actions, so that you can experience your life with increased self-compassion and gratitude.

Each session is rooted in elements of client-centered, psychodynamic , and narrative therapeutic approaches which are designed to aide my clients in not only uncovering more of who they are in the present, but also, who they are striving to become in the future.
If you're feeling misunderstood, stressed out, or just need some additional support, I'm here and would feel honored to help you work through what you're contending with. Together we will figure out what you need, and how to have your needs met. I'm a firm believer that there is no 'one size fits all' approach to therapy and in keeping with that belief, my sessions are uniquely tailored to each individual.

Seeking therapy is a brave step. Whether you are presently in crisis or simply feeling a bit stuck in life, I honor the effort & courage that it took you to get here. It suggests that—regardless of how you might feel in this moment—some small (or large) part of you believes in the possibility of a more peaceful, fulfilling life. As a therapist, I am here to not only affirm and amplify that belief, but more importantly, to help you discover and define its reality for yourself.

I specialize in treating anxiety, stress, trauma, relationship difficulties, and behavioral problems. When overwhelming experiences leave their mark, it can be hard to know where to turn for help. Memories, fears, distress, and anger take over and damage our relationships. Parenting becomes fraught with tension. Children lose control, resulting in tantrums and behavior problems. By understanding the root of your distress, I can help you or your family find new ways to cope.

Many people get to a point in their lives when they feel stuck. Friends and family who used to be able to help are no longer able to, or don’t know how. During these times, it can be beneficial to have a relationship that is different, one in which you can share honestly without feeling judged or misunderstood and, in turn, be asked questions that can enhance insight and spur positive change. Welcome to therapy! As a therapist, I am welcoming, compassionate and curious. Therapy can be hard, so my goal is to help you to feel safe and accepted while engaged in a journey that will naturally involve some discomfort.

My practice focuses on relationship-building whether it be with a love interest, partner, immediate/extended family members, the workplace, etc. Whatever methodology (CBT, IFS, hypnosis and more) I use creates multi-layered assessment of response to crisis, trauma, separation, alienation, etc. In relationship we are challenged to explore identity, values, self-worth and sense of belonging that give you the tools to be successful. Included in the work are homework assignments and setting short-term and long-term goals. In this way profound and lasting changes can be made in a short period of time.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
