I am a licensed clinical psychologist with extensive training and experience helping people confronting challenges including anxiety, stress, depression, relationship issues, and life transitions. I work with adults, adolescents, couples, and families. As an integrative therapist, I draw on techniques from cognitive-behavioral and interpersonal therapies to help people lead more fulfilling, meaningful lives, sharpening coping skills and facilitating improved self-understanding. My style is relational, and I find that working collaboratively with my patients to identify treatment priorities and course helps make the experience most beneficial and rewarding. I believe that a strong therapeutic fit is paramount.

Therapy is a highly personal and unique process for each person. I strive to meet you where you are at in your life with a genuine and non-judgmental approach. We will work together to collaboratively identify where you feel stuck, to explore your values and what brings your life meaning, and to gain a deeper understanding of yourself both individually and in relation to others. We will also seek to increase your sense of self, mindfulness, and self-compassion in the service of pursuing a life that brings you authenticity and purpose.

There are many reasons you may be seeking therapy: you may want help with a specific issue (divorce, loss, depression, anxiety), you may not be exactly sure why you want help other than a vague sense that things aren't right, or you may be experiencing discontent, anxiety or depression even though you function at a high level and are living a "good" life.

Do you feel empty inside, unfulfilled in your relationships and long for a greater sense of meaning and purpose? Many of us lose touch with ourselves as we take on different life roles, try to conform to what we believe we "should" be or are faced with major stressors. It is this inner disconnection that can lead to symptoms like anxiety and depression. I specialize in helping adults, college students and adolescents struggling with issues around sense of self and identity. I also support parents and teens stay connected during the trials of adolescence, and help parents better understand and care for their special needs child.

When you are in emotional crisis, it is important to feel that someone is listening carefully to your often confusing, upsetting thoughts. I listen with curiosity that you can begin to experience about yourself. In understanding hidden and often inhibiting parts of yourself you are freer to be in charge of your life and reach your desired goals.

Hello, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and I am a Certified Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapist with EMDRIA. EMDR accesses the brain's innate ability to overcome the obstacles of past trauma. I understand how past traumas can lend to people feeling "stuck," and can contribute to a great many symptoms and problematic behaviors. I work with people from age five and up, to help overcome challenges, particularly those which are compounded by past traumas. I am ready to help you to learn new tools to overcome your current and past challenges and to move toward future peace and ease.

Do you struggle with depression, anxiety, and trauma? Do you experience difficulties managing family and relationship issues? I believe that healing happens when we pay attention to all the parts that make us whole—our mind, body, and soul. The subconscious mind controls most of our reality and choices, so building awareness and active presence can improve the quality of daily living and assist in not only surviving, but thriving through life. As an intuitive & holistic therapist, I will assist you in strengthening your inner psyche and developing new tools to manage negative feelings and thoughts.

I approach psychotherapy from a spiritual perspective and I believe therapy, along with other practices, can help us awaken to a life of meaning. In therapy I will help you identify the source of your longing to be whole, and together, we will move closer to that source, so you become re-sourced. Together we will explore your innate natural cycles and help you align to your own inner rhythm, so that you might meet depletion with rest and energy with creativity.

Are you or loved ones facing challenges you want to work through in safety and confidence? Reacting to life events with worry or sadness? Ready for a new beginning? For better or worse, our experience is shaped by expectations and habits that are maintained by loyalty to important relationships, and by cycles of confirming experience. They affect our happiness, our relationships and the success of our endeavors. Therapy can help. In a safe empathic relationship, unhelpful expectations and habits can be retired, and happier habits of relating to life and others can be learned, chosen and implemented.

I'm a licensed psychotherapist experienced in working with individuals of all ages, as well as families. I also provide parent guidance to assist parents in promoting their child's well being and improve family communication. I see my role as helping people dealing with stress, anxiety or any other life challenge, recognize underlying core issues and blind spots that may be preventing them from achieving a sense of peace and fulfillment. Learning new ways of coping, and of relating to self and others, can further improve confidence and vitality, as well as the capacity to engage in satisfying personal and professional relationships.
