Through honest and warm communication I create an environment where clients can feel supported and cared for throughout our work together. My specialties include anxiety disorders, trauma and related disorders, depression and mood disorders, and sports performance and injury recovery. I work with adults 18-year-old and older.

*Practice Currently Full* Life can feel really overwhelming at times, especially when you are trying to manage the daily grind, while also being present in your personal and professional relationships. When you have a busy and demanding life your personal relationships often take a back burner and it’s hard to deal with problems effectively in the moment. Sometimes it’s easier to numb out with unhealthy habits like over drinking, over or undereating, scrolling social media, or overworking. But, eventually these habits leave you feeling more stressed and disconnected, and problems that once appeared small snowball into larger issues.

The client-centered psychotherapy services I provide are tailored to meet the individual needs of my clients. I draw from a variety of theoretical orientations, including psychodynamic (insight oriented), cognitive-behavioral (skills development) and relational treatment approaches, but the needs of my clients dictate the specific approaches I employ in our work. "Goodness-of-fit" between client and therapist, as well between client and treatment approach, is very important. I believe psychotherapy should address both surface-level problems (e.g. depression, anxiety, relationship conflict), as well as underlying causes of these problems, so it has a long-lasting impact.
