I believe in the healing power of bearing witness to and participating in my clients' self-exploration. Whether we are exploring feelings, systems of oppression and their effects on us, patterns in relationships, or family of origin issues, the strength and compassion of an empathic partner in this journey can lead to a deeper understanding of oneself and a relief in symptoms. I bring empathy and mindful curiosity to our work together.

I view therapy as a collaborative process where we work together to understand the challenges you are facing. My initial goal is to provide empathy and relief, while working in the longer term to help you feel more open and able to access parts of your experience that may be hidden. This can be scary and vitalizing, and I view work with each client as a unique journey where the path to healing unfolds over time. For me, the ultimate goal of therapy is to help you both accept and challenge yourself, and thereby become more fully who you are.

You can thrive, feel more freedom and peace, and you don't have to do it alone. Relationship challenges, confusing emotions, and transitions can leave us feeling shaky.

I can help you navigate relationships with self, loved ones, and the wider world with confidence and ease. You possess tremendous inner strength, courage, and determination. If you are willing to work, you can have the change you desire. You deserve to be your best self.

Are you finding yourself uncomfortably at odds with your partner and other important people in your life? Do you exchange harsh words and criticism when you don't mean to? Do you feel as if you push away the people who are important to you? Many individuals and couples learn to avoid conflict very early in their relationships. Over time, this can lead to resentment, more intense and frequent fighting, exhausting criticism of self and others, unhealthy friends, and long-term problems. Learning how to manage your self in conflict is an attainable skill with tremendous positive influence on your relationships.

You are always becoming the person that you are. My approach to depth psychotherapy starts from this premise. Who a person is and how they come to understand themselves is an on-going life-long process. There are times in life when that process is disrupted and as a consequence, we suffer—struggling to locate ourselves and find our way forward. That suffering is best alleviated through collaborative understanding and insight building. In this way, my approach is a holistic one—as I see each individual as a sum of their total life experiences rather than a collection of symptoms.

I work primarily with children and teens (and sometimes adults) who are marginalized in some way. I have extensive training in gender identity issues, the effects of trauma and loss, and the psychological impact of social injustice.

When you’ve got a lot going on, it’s easy to put yourself last. If you want to explore your identity, deal with the impacts of past traumas, or learn how to feel more connected in your relationships, you may not know where to start. But the good news is that you don’t have to do it alone. I create an environment in virtual or in-person sessions where you can feel heard and seen in all the complexity of your identities and experiences. I have helped clients build self-compassion, manage the impacts of trauma, practice new ways of communicating, find community, explore gender and sexuality, and access more joy.

I believe that the capacity to thrive lives in your hands, heart, and imagination. As your therapist, I will work with you to uncover your own inherent wisdom. Together we will create a collaborative environment that supports your wise self in expressing more of itself. With your wise self in the room, we can explore the parts of you that may feel lost or left out. As the conversation unfolds, I will support you to empower yourself to love and celebrate all of you. As your self-love increases, you may come to realize that the painful parts of you are just that: a part of you, and that your life is not defined by these parts.

The decision to pursue therapy is not one taken easily. Many possibilities may have led you to this point: A recent disruption or crisis in your life, a long struggle with troubling emotions and behaviors, and/or a fundamental desire to better know yourself. I have experience treating frequently occurring issues such as depression, trauma, interpersonal difficulties, and anxiety. I also have an interest in working with people who have survived childhood abuse, who experience feelings of alienation and estrangement from others, and those who identify as LGBTQ+.

I am a mature senior clinician with many years of face to face experience with people facing simple and complex issues that cause them to be stuck in a rut of one kind or other. I am best suited at working with either mature, experienced people ready to make a significant shift in their life or someone who has had limited life experience and is in the midst of a life altering crisis. I am ideally suited to work with people who know they need another person who has the intelligence and sensitivity to support them through their barriers.
