About

There are times all of us need a bit of extra support to handle the problems and stressors life throws our way. Problems can sometimes be relentless and seep into every aspect of our life. Problems such as anxiety, depression, loneliness, grief, worry and conflict can make it hard to live the life we desire. My aim is to help people take their lives back from problems. Through exploration of what values and preferences are most important to you, we can find ways to reclaim your life from the problems that are harassing you and your relationships in order to promote new possibilities and ways of being.
I have worked with people dealing with body image/eating issues, anxiety, depression, the pressure of failure and low self-esteem, parenting challenges, substance use problems, and conflictual relationships. I specialize in include working with the loved ones of adolescents and adults who engage in self-harm, substance use, and other risky behaviors.
I realize that finding the right therapist is an important choice and it can be challenging to know who to choose. I pride myself in my conversational, non-evaluative, warm, compassionate, collaborative, and interactional approach. Feel free to call me for a free initial 15-minute phone conversation so you can get an idea if we are the right fit.
