Counselor, MA, LMHC
Having a quarterlife crisis? Got mommy issues? Daddy issues? Need a therapist who will help you understand yourself, put things in perspective, and tap into your strengths? I am your girl. As comedian Iliza Shlesinger says "I am your elder millennial"....Young enough to understand the pressure to live an Instagramable life, but old enough to have some insight that your BFF probably can't offer.
I love working with women in their 20s and 30s to address all sorts of topics including family relationships, health, self image, education, career, dating, and marriage.
Bring all the feels. Laughter and tears are both important to the therapy process. Expect to leave my office feeling hopeful and cared for. I really look forward to meeting you.

I have seen Tom's career develop from the early stages as a student and intern, through his work in community mental health and, now, as a private practitioner. In all of these situations, I have been impressed by Tom's sincerity and compassion, coupled with dedication to providing excellent client care. Tom is an outstanding therapist.
