"In my twenty years as a school psychologist, I have seen students navigate multiple stressors but none more complex than in today's society. Stress can stem from learning and executive functioning challenges, communication problems in relationships, academic pressures, substance use, coming out, medical diagnoses, screen time/social media or managing involvement in special education programs. With my young clients and their parents, my initial goal is to offer a safe, non-judgemental space for understanding a person's family dynamics, academic environment, social challenges and ever-shifting emotions. Call for free consult."

"The most significant predictor of a successful therapy experience is the quality of the relationship between therapist and client. Building a safe, nurturing relationship is where I excel. My style is warm and highly interactive, best suited for clients who prefer a therapist who feels very human, less like the old "medical model." I assist clients to explore their thought patterns and corresponding emotional reactions, and to identify unconscious assumptions they hold about themselves, which inform their behavioral patterns. I also provide practical tools for regulating anxiety, managing depression, and processing grief & loss."

"When searching for a therapist, it's important to find someone relatable and authentic. My professional experiences as a therapist include grief, life transitions, and trauma recovery. I help individuals, couples, blended families, families of autism, and LGBTQ populations to achieve wellness goals unique to their lives. My rich life experience substantially enhances the empathy, relatability, dignity, and understanding desired in a therapist. I provide convenient telehealth-counseling via a HIPAA compliant video conferencing format, making access to mental health services devoid of commute, parking or time away from work or home."

"The decision to start psychotherapy is significant as it often means that you are suffering in some way or you've realized that what you've been doing is no longer working, and you are seeking change in your life. My approach is collaborative, warm, and challenging. I work psychodynamically, and also focus on the integration of the mind and body. I believe change occurs through the expression of emotions, addressing how the past impacts your current experiences, and exploring interpersonal relationships, including the relationship between the patient and therapist."

"Life can present us with challenges that we're not prepared for. Underlying issues can make it very difficult to cope at these times. In some cases, you may be experiencing difficult moods -- anger or irritability, depression or anxiety, sadness, grief. Some other reasons my clients come to counseling include relationship troubles (e.g., romantic, family, friends), unresolved trauma, demanding life transitions, stubborn self-defeating patterns, and low self-esteem that is undermining their lives. Psychotherapy can help you move through these challenges with better outcomes and more confidence. "

"Many of us enter adulthood with beliefs about love influenced by Hollywood depictions of romance. If we're fortunate, we've had more nuanced and realistic models, examples from adults who've shown us what it means to commit to another person and what love through a real lens looks like up close. The luckiest of us we saw the deepening and mellowing of love over time, love between people who have weathered conflicts, learned from the challenges they faced and and grown together. If so, we are likely to reach our adult years understanding what loves both asks of us and offers in reward. "
