It is crucial to find a therapist that is a good fit, therefore, I like to take the first few sessions to get to know each other and decide if we want to work together. I aim to create a warm, collaborative environment in which you feel comfortable talking about and processing the worst events that have happened to you in your life. My approach uses acceptance based strategies and mindfulness to help you increase insight as well as get in touch with your emotions, all in the service of living a richer life, more aligned with your values. I will help you face your fears by taking action steps towards what is most important to you.

Everyone deserves to feel like themselves. Sometimes life gets ahead of us and we can feel lost, stuck and/or disconnected. It can be distressing and cause suffering. Maybe it is a major life event or role change, a spiraling negative thought pattern, mounting academic or career pressure, or parenting or relationship challenges. Whatever the reason, it takes courage to seek help and effort to imagine change and improvement. You have taken the first step. Your next steps will be joined by a therapist who will treat you with respect and work diligently to address your presenting problem.

I view therapy as an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of how your day to day thoughts and feelings can be connected to your behaviors, emotional states, and relationships with others. I strive to bring compassion, warmth, and humility into our work together so that you can continue crafting and moving towards the life you want to lead. Part of this process will draw upon your strengths and values to embrace change in challenging areas of growth. Within a collaborative space, we will explore and work through barriers that prevent you from living more fully.

"What is the trouble that brings you in today?" I always start our conversation this way. I begin sessions by focusing on the here and now and filling in the past as needed. I help individuals struggling to create relationships that are fulfilling enough, work with parents, teens, couples and individuals trying to find satisfying relationships, be effective in the workplace or school and channel their behavior productively. You are likely frustrated and have tried a to get results for yourself or a loved one: try something else! .My style is warm, pragmatic and grounded in meeting you where you are hurting most to cultivate change.

Anxiety, depression, stress, loneliness, difficulties in school/work/family and relationships, feeling "not enough"....being a human is really hard. People aren’t weak, damaged, or broken for struggling with life and seeking therapy. You are brave, strong, courageous, curious, insightful, inspirational, proactive and worthy of support. Therapy gives you a chance to explore who you are and learn to identify what you feel really proud of. We can identify what things aren’t working well for you and what you can do about those to improve how you feel on a daily basis and about life overall.

Stress is at an all-time high. You’re doing your best to keep everything together. But on the inside, you are struggling – you never feel good enough - and no matter how hard you try, the inner critic quickly reminds you of all the ways you’re falling short. Finding balance is nearly impossible. The stress is becoming debilitating. It’s been exhausting. You can’t even remember the last time you were truly happy because being okay with not being okay has become your norm. You’re tired of putting yourself last and doing things for others at the expense of your wellbeing. This is it. You’re done. It’s time for a change.

My professional philosophy with regards to sexual health is that everyone should be able to discuss their sexuality in a safe environment. Too often people are embarrassed or afraid to discuss these things with anyone and feel isolated. Sexuality is an essential part of the human condition. There is no set norm. Human sexuality and sexual needs can vary widely, encompassing various orientations such as gender preferences to erotic preferences and lifestyles. Many people have a difficult time discussing their sexual needs and issues. My goal is to provide an accepting environment for clients to explore their needs and wants.

I'm passionate about helping clients who are curious and thoughtful, who struggle with anxiety and want a better understanding of themselves and their impact on those around them. I have a specialty in working with people who are overthinkers, who long for deeper relationships but get caught in circular patterns of repetitive and persistent thoughts that prevent them from fully being present. I work with individuals and couples to develop new insights into their patterns, learn to manage anxiety, establish balance in their lives, and develop meaningful & satisfying connections.

Becoming a mother, whether for the first time or again, can be a difficult change that can often lead to unwanted anxious thoughts, depression, and self-doubt. You may worry about getting it “right” or feel overwhelmed. Before you were a mother, you had another identity and may be trying to get back to yourself. Some moms struggle to bond with baby, but you can learn to nurture a trusting attachment. Becoming pregnant and giving birth can be a powerful experience and you may want to feel more prepared or process a traumatic birth. You deserve support and skills to ease the unique challenges and vulnerable moments in this journey.
