My work aims to help couples, families, adolescents, and adults better understand themselves in relation to the world around them. A focus of treatment is helping clients become more aware of habitual negative thinking and what drives those thoughts. I believe that when there is self-awareness, there can be behavior change. Teaching mindful awareness and its application in daily life is particularly appealing to me and often informs the therapy. I have experience working with couples struggling with the challenges of parenting and co-parenting as well as with life transitions.

I work most often treating symptoms related to depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem in individual, couples, and family treatment. I often work with people experiencing change due to life transitions and combine cognitive-behavioral, relational, mindfulness, and psychodynamic approaches. Clients describe me as warm, non judgmental, and authentic.

I have worked for over a decade as a school social worker and have perspective on educational and social issues specific to the school experience. Because of this, I work well with adolescents as well as with parents experiencing difficulty with their child's developmentally challenging issues.
