I have worked with a variety of clients, diagnoses, and life circumstances. I primarily see adults that cope with anxiety and depression, difficult transitions as well as problems within their interpersonal/romantic relationships. I find the work to be very rewarding and make every effort to join with each client as we work to understand how their past and present experiences contribute to their current situations. I believe that we live out cycles/patterns that begin early in our life and manifest over the course of our adulthood. It is important to explore and understand them to make changes.

I focus on creating a safe, collaborative, and trusting therapeutic relationship. I base my work on the belief that we are all affected by relationships. This can be relationships with family, partners, friends, co-workers, or even the relationship we have with ourself. How do we repair these relationships? Compassion, empathy, and understanding for ourselves and others. Sometimes other parts of us that feel anger, fear, or sadness can get in the way of this understanding. Psychotherapy can be a way to move through painful emotions and reconnect to your confidence, courage, and creativity.

At times, we all struggle with the inevitable trials of being human. You may be a parent or partner in a significant relationship struggling with connection, and in need of both practical and emotional support. At times, feelings of anxiety, apathy, and depression arise, and feelings of disconnection and loneliness can take hold. For others, we may be at a crossroads in our life, brought about by divorce, relocation, caregiving for a loved one, or a desire to have a bigger impact in our communities and the world. We may be asking ourselves BIG questions, “what’s next”, “what should I do”, and “what do I want from life”.

*TELETHERAPY ONLY* I believe people continue to grow and foster their self-concept over time. Sudden life changes, chronic stress, and ongoing personal difficulties are challenging and affect how we adjust to life transitions. I see therapy as a process aiming to empower individuals to embrace their true self, foster self-awareness and personal growth. I aim to create a trusting environment for individuals and couples to explore recurrent patterns in relationships and cope with distressing emotions.
