I work with adults , parents and children from birth through adolescence.
My therapeutic approach centers on creating more opportunities for space and reflection. This is an active and transformative process where we learn how to interrupt old patterns of reacting and create room for intentionality in our responses. Many of us operate within the conditions of our early relationships and form ways of relating that we are longing to transmute. I support you as you learn to get to the root of the response, understand it, and to develop tools of self-healing so that you can one day see the well-worn reaction waiting for you, and choose something different.

I specialize in individual therapy with adults undergoing life adjustments, couples, parents, families and adolescents.
Sometimes, we can use our existing support systems and coping skills to manage difficult periods in our lives. Other times, we need to carve out the space to gain perspective, learn new skills and change our ways of relating to ourselves and each other. My goal as a therapist is to reduce distress by helping my clients see themselves, their environment and their relationships clearly, identify both positive and negative behavioral/coping patterns as they arise, and make thoughtful choices accordingly.

I work with adolescents and adults who feel depressed, anxious, overwhelmed, stuck, or numb and want to heal from past trauma, live more authentically, and develop more meaningful and satisfying relationships.
I offer a warm and conversational approach to support you as you begin your process of exploration, reflection, and healing. Working collaboratively, I will help you bring awareness to the patterns of thinking or engaging with others that are no longer serving you. By developing an understanding of the roots and impact of these patterns, you can begin to cultivate the freedom and skills to break away from them.

I see children, adolescents and adults in psychotherapy and psychological assessment.
I strive to create a safe therapeutic relationship that supports and encourages my patients to overcome the obstacles in their lives that have held them back in order for them to resume healthy development. Every patient brings a unique life story to the work and I am committed to understanding and recognizing each individual's strivings and challenges. In addition to psychotherapy, I also provide psychological assessment services for children, adolescents and adults in my work, and believe the process of assessment brings much clarity to what are often confusing and misunderstood difficulties.

Talking and being heard are the first steps in finding your bearings. Whether you've been thrown off course by depression or anxiety or something else that doesn't fit neatly under a heading, talking helps. I have a career-long focus on working with adults on the problems of living. I have helped people navigate challenges ranging from complicated relationships to difficult family dynamics to ingrained mental habits that are getting in the way. Some days you want to dig into big questions about goals and identity; other days you just need to talk about your day at work.

I provide individual psychotherapy to adults struggling with anxiety, depression, relational problems, work stress, life transitions, and addiction or substance use concerns. I take a collaborative approach when working with clients to identify treatment goals and integrate evidence-based therapies in order to build coping skills and increase resilience. My goal in working with clients is to create a supportive non-judgmental space that is conducive to self-reflection and self-compassion. After all, self-loathing and shame are not motivators for change; they get us stuck.

I work with neurodivergent adults and adolescents, to shape a therapy experience that truly works for them. In 12 years of clinical practice, I’ve found that the single most important way to help a client is by being a person they can trust to speak their language. I help individuals and families determine goals that are appropriate and inspiring, and a way of achieving them that makes sense for their individual needs and circumstances. When working with children and families, I support clear and open communication between all family members.

I enjoy being a psychotherapist because it provides me the opportunity to help people resolve the issues that are causing them distress. I work with adults , children, and families, and understand that each person is a unique individual with his or her unique life circumstances, history, and social and cultural context. A goal of our work together will be to help you identify and understand the conflicts that may be causing you difficulty, and to help you overcome them. Or perhaps negative thinking patterns cause you to experience sadness, loneliness, hopelessness, fear, or other unwanted emotions.
