"If you are having difficulty with relationships, at work, with parents or children, I can help you identify the issues causing discomfort and learn new strategies for coping, managing and getting more joy in life. If you need someone to talk openly with about your challenges in life, I can listen and help you gain insight so that you can choose the best ways to proceed. If you feel isolated and judged, I can help you build confidence. If you are stuck in grief, I can help you get through it. I can help you see pathways where you might be inclined to see barriers."

"Choosing a therapist is a significant decision, and one in which it is crucial to trust your feelings. I am a very engaging, warm and thoughtful person. My approach is eclectic and interactive, and is adapted to the unique needs of each individual or couple. Humor, respectful listening, honest dialogue and collaboration are all important aspects of my work. My priority is to provide a safe connection as a foundation for growth, enhanced self-esteem, and well-being. Habitual patterns causing impasses, lack of passion, anxiety and depression, can shift once underlying needs and feelings are legitimized and given voice."

"My approach with adults, couples, families, and adolescents is active, goal-oriented, and creative. My practice is guided by intensive training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), cognitive behavior therapy (explorations into the roles of automatic thoughts, self-judgment, and schemas), mindfulness, and a lifetime in the creative arts. If you suffer from stuck thinking, ruminations, and patterns you can't seem to get out of, we might be a good fit. We might not always have the ability to change situations in our lives, but I believe we can change how we think about and respond to these situations."

Whether you are currently in a relationship that isn't what you had hoped for, or have given up hope entirely, therapy can help you to look at your life through a different lens. Our work together will be about understanding you as a person, not as a diagnosis, and about helping you to build a more solid sense of yourself. My practice focuses on helping women of all sexual orientations, as well as services for the LGBTQQ community."

"People seek therapy for different reasons. Some are hoping for relief from a specific problem such as depression, anxiety or relationship difficulties. Others may have a general sense of not feeling as alive as they imagine they could. They would like help understanding this feeling and are seeking a richer, deeper, more fulfilling life. In psychotherapy we engage in a process of self discovery in which people learn about themselves and about the ways they have been blocked from feeling fully in touch with themselves and others in their lives."

"The three core things I believe about psychotherapy: 1. People are inherently healthy. 2. Therapy is not just about symptoms. 3. There is nothing mysterious about whether therapy is working. Traditionally, psychotherapy has been associated with illness while emotional health has been left to the self-help movement. The theory I practice sees everyone as essentially healthy. As a result, there is no ceiling on "getting better." People with symptoms want to feel more like him or herself which I aim to accomplish as quickly as possible. Someone coping pretty well, however, might seek help to become more effective."
