I work with people on a wide array of issues, including depression, anxiety, life transitions, relationship difficulties, parenting, family building, identify formation, grief, and loss.
The decision to seek therapy can sometimes be a difficult one. However, the challenges that motivate us towards change can often become opportunities to create a deeper awareness of who we are, and who we are striving to become. I truly believe we grow in connection to others, it’s in these relationships we often learn the most about ourselves. It is hard to look at ourselves from another person’s perspective and to see ourselves in ways that we haven’t before. It can be messy work, but it can also be truly liberating and rewarding. .

If the above speaks to any part of you, I provide individual and relationship therapy in-person and online to best support my clients, especially those who identify as empaths, neurodivergent, and creatives as well as to intimate partners who feel disconnected after significant life transitions.
You feel overwhelmed by the pressure to succeed, yet still feel like you're falling behind some invisible measure of "real success." You are over being the giver in your relationships, whether in friendships where you initiate all of the texts or your intimate relationships where you feel more like a manager than a true partner. Your nervous system is spent because you're burned out, but even the thought of downtime gives you guilt. You're ready for something to change on a deeper level so that you can finally understand yourself, accept yourself, and trust yourself, no matter the circumstances.

I have had many years of gratifying experience in deeply engaging with the people I work with, and training and supervising doctoral students and therapists (many on this site have been my students!). Discovering what has been causing personal distress, worry, loneliness, or disappointment is what transforms life. These underlying stresses can cause problems with relationship, career, mood, or just general feelings of dissatisfaction. The personal growth that blooms in the therapy opens doors inside and out, and creates the rich opportunities and experiences we all want in life.
