Life was hard enough and now this? Again!? I am here for individuals and couples feeling overwhelmed and struggling to navigate their personal, professional, academic, and romantic lives. Using a combination of psychodynamic talk therapy, evidence based practices (EBP) and mindfulness, we can learn management skills for symptoms of anxiety and depression, approach current issues, and explore underlying causes. Psychotherapy is a collaborative endeavor, requiring dedication on the part of both therapist and client — both of us will make necessary and different contributions to the process.

My experience comes from 31 years of helping children, adults, couples and families in both Community Mental Health and Private Practice. My approach is eclectic and tailored to each individual's needs to facilitate healing and growth. Through my years of experience I have witnessed over and over again people coming into therapy with great pain, discomfort and despair but with time, (sometimes within a very short time) their symptoms diminish and a whole new person emerges. Crisis times can be extremely painful and distressful but they can also be opportunities for growth and healing through therapy.

My practice includes the treatment of individuals, couples and families, and I have a specialty in working with young adults and family therapy.
My approach is grounded in Cognitive-Behavioral and Attachment Theories. I also incorporate the practices of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy). I aspire to meet clients where they are, and help each individual to work on his or her expressed goals. I enjoy taking this journey with clients to navigate some of their most difficult and challenging moments in life, to help prevent troubled kids or young adults from more serious trouble, and to help all clients who seek my support turn their life's biggest challenges into opportunities for growth and lasting change.

I have a special interest working with individuals and couples through a unique process that incorporates different therapeutic modalities which offers greater depth in a shorter period of time from traditional therapy.
Often when an individual or couple is seeking out a therapist they're in the midst of a significant transition or challenge that can feel overwhelming. Paradoxically, I believe this is often the time in which the greatest change is possible. By exploring issues through a multi-layered approach, we will identify the deeper truths and lessons these challenges are presenting. By lending tools and feedback, I assist my clients in having a different relationship with their challenges; thus moving away from constriction into conscious growth and empowerment.

Therapy is unique to each client-therapist relationship. My goal as your therapist is to help facilitate the change, healing, and forward movement that you may seek. My hope is that through our work together, you will learn how to validate yourself, believe in yourself, and focus on progress, not perfection.

While I work with people in all life stages, I have significant experience working with clients on career transitions, the challenges of parenting, and helping couples maintain connecting and intimacy throughout these and other life stresses.
Do you find yourself stuck in painful ways of relating to yourself or others? I can work with you to recognize these patterns, understand why they developed, and loosen their grip on your life today. Through the therapy relationship, we can develop a trusting environment to explore your thoughts and feelings, personal history, and relationships. In this way, we can create enough distance from these painful experiences and ways of relating to allow for greater freedom and satisfaction in your relationships, work, and creative life.

I work with couples and individuals that are curious and motivated to identify barriers that block them from flourishing in life and relationships.
My clients want fulfilling and connected relationships, ones in which their needs are responded to with compassion and care. When disconnection or conflict threatens a relationship, we naturally fight, freeze, or withdraw in an attempt to protect ourselves. Despite our best intentions, we find ourselves more disconnected, hurt, and confused. I understand this cycle. I am here to help couples and individuals at all stages of relationship: early stages to prevent future problems, during or after a life transition, and those needing help to resolve perpetual conflict and increase security in relationship.

I work with individuals and couples who’ve had chaotic experiences, are experiencing pain and/or find themselves ready to heal and move forward. Often, I work with trauma. Trauma shows up in many ways - it could be a feeling a distance from your life, perpetual anxiety, moments of ‘trigger’ where you can’t control your behavior, or coping mechanisms that are hurting more than helping. Trauma informed care means slow, safe, intentional work. We can heal your nervous system, taking it out of fight/flight and into it’s "window of tolerance" where you can not just survive, but thrive.
