I work with my clients from an approach that highlights self-empowerment, promotes awareness and acceptance , and builds upon strengths in order to foster a growth mindset and the decision-making skills aligned with a positive self-identity.
Growth and healing take time, and sometimes it can feel most overwhelming when we are in the midst of this process. On the journey towards change, we may have moments of feeling deeply lost, disconnected, or alone. I believe that the ability to shift struggle into strength is shaped by the relationship that you have with yourself. I aim to support teens and young adults in developing the skills and insight to navigate anxiety and depression as they adjust to many new types of life stressors. I hope to illuminate worthiness, value systems, and the capacity for resilience by breaking through barriers rooted in shame and self-doubt.

We use cognitive behavioral therapy, DBT, ACT & mindfulness practices to support you.
Are you finding it is hard to stay focused and take care of yourself while taking care of others? Perhaps you are navigating health challenges, chronic illness, chronic pain or are going through the process of pregnancy to postpartum. All of these experiences can really increase anxiety making daily tasks and responsibilities all that much harder to achieve. You put on a brave face so everyone thinks you have it all together & that you're fine, but that's not true. In fact, keeping up the façade that everything is great is leaving you feeling exhausted & you are ready for a change.

I have experience in applying Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ) in my work with individuals and couples, but aim to practice a flexible approach that takes each of my clients’ needs into account.
Anxiety, depression, grief, employment issues, financial stress, relationship conflict, family problems-- these are just a few of the life stressors that are at an all-time high right now. Making the decision to start therapy and choose a therapist can be a daunting process. Whatever your goals, I strive to maintain a collaborative approach that will cultivate safety and trust in the therapeutic process. Therapy can feel uncomfortable at times; my goal is to provide the unbiased, nonjudgmental, supportive and even lighthearted atmosphere that can help ease any misgivings and create the space for meaningful growth.

I make use of mindfulness and acceptance techniques in the treatment of OCD, Anxiety, and Depression.
As a clinical psychologist, I help individuals who are struggling with feelings of anxiety, depression, and loss. I teach my clients to practice what I call "the reverse golden rule": treat yourself as you would treat others! We are often so critical of ourselves, while with a friend we would be kind, supportive, compassionate. My 20+ years of experience have given me the tools to work using an eclectic approach that I tailor to each client. I offer a comfortable, safe environment where you can explore your thoughts and feelings, where you can feel heard, understood, and validated.

Society and social media tell us that we have to look, feel, and act a certain way to “fit in.” More likely than not, you don’t fit the typical mold that society has created and as a result you might feel like an outsider; other, different, less than, anxious, depressed, or lonely. Perhaps this doesn't quite fit your particular situation or feelings, and that's okay, too. I am here to offer you alternatives; acceptance , non-judgment, balance, and effective tools to help you live life with more fulfillment and less conflict. I see adolescents, adults, and couples/families coping with various mental health and life issues.

I specialize in working with clients who want to resolve emotional, relational, or other phase of life changes. The way I do this is sharing therapeutic practices that serve to overcome emotional distress which, in turn, leads to unhealthy behaviors that interfere with current life goals and values. As we work together in a safe, non judgmental therapeutic relationship, negative thoughts and behaviors can be changed and replaced allowing clients to free themselves from discouragement, harmful attachments, fearful thoughts, excessive worry or feeling like they are losing control of their emotions and their lives.
