I enjoy working with children (9+), teens and adults. I see couples and families helping them live happier, more relaxed, and fulfilling lives. I am respectful of my client's time. I frequently check in to make sure that the sessions are helpful, and that we are focusing on what the client wishes to. If one approach is not working, we try another! When people are feeling anxious, depressed, or angry, often the problem is their stress level and lack of a support system.

I believe that everyone can benefit from finding someone to talk to about life's challenges. I also recognize how hard this can be. As a therapist, my first priority upon meeting with clients is to make them feel comfortable. I offer a non judgmental space and work collaboratively with clients to develop solutions to their problems. I work hard at simply connecting with my clients in a very real and authentic way. I spend time understanding their unique challenges and tailor my treatment approach to the individual. I work with individuals, couples, and families; young adults and adults.

My ideal client is an adult heterosexual or gay individual who is both curious and willing to explore the reasons underlying their problematic use, because often the drink or the drug, which started out as a simple solution has now become yet another problem to heal!

These are anxious times for us all. Social distancing may be exacerbating struggles you were already experiencing or perhaps it is creating new stressors. If you were already feeling lonely and isolated you may be feeling even more so now. Struggles in your relationship that were easier to avoid with a busy life may now feel inescapable. Or, perhaps this time alone has given you time to think about changes you have been wanting to make in your life but now wonder if they are possible. The future suddenly feels uncertain. Whatever you are wrestling with, chances are these extraordinary times have made them even more challenging.

Being a human is hard. Anxiety keeps us up at night. Depression weighs us down. And that critical voice never fails to let us know exactly how we screwed up. We feel numb, unsettled -- disconnected from those we love and disengaged from what matters most. Looking at our lives, we realize that this is not what we had planned on, and the life we yearn for seems out of reach.

Feeling chronic negative emotions such as sadness, anger, anxiety, or loneliness is often a sign that something in our relationships has gone awry. By the time we attend psychotherapy, the task of altering our relationships may feel difficult or impossible to navigate alone. As a psychodynamic therapist, I am interested in how your early relationships impact your personality, worldview, attachment, perceptions, and coping mechanisms. Through compassion, challenge and sometimes humor, I aim to help my patients gain insight, learn new ways of relating, and implement change in order to heal, grow and flourish.
