There is nothing like being listened to and understood on a deep level, with genuine interest and acceptance. This is what I strive to offer in therapy or analysis, as we explore together your hopes and dreams, your losses and regrets, your longings and fears. Many people come to therapy to free themselves from self-defeating patterns and the legacy of past traumas, so they can be more truly themselves in relation to others and live with greater satisfaction and meaning. My analytic training enables me to work intensively, and I enjoy incorporating experiential techniques like journaling, psychodrama, and art.

As humans, we all feel stuck, hopeless, and lost at times. It is brave to want more and to seek help. Therapy can help you find answers and peace. It is a powerful tool for gaining insight into ourselves and others, making important changes, finding solutions to problems, and living intentionally and fully. I take a relational approach to therapy that relies on creating a non-judgemental, supportive, identity-affirming therapeutic relationship through which we can explore and reach your goals. I have 10 years of experience helping individuals gain awareness and make meaningful changes in their lives.

Upon entering each new developmental phase of our lives, there is often a momentary pause, an unsettling of the ship as we adjust to new demands, challenges and desires (and this is true no matter our age). Perhaps the Terrible Twos, Tween or Teen years have hit? Could it be that your child is struggling at school and you'd like to support him or her to feel better and have more success? Maybe you are an adult who is feeling overwhelmed by stress and the demands of life. These moments are great opportunities for growth and I believe I can help.

I love my work. I work primarily with women. I find that most women, regardless of their personal histories, complain of feeling stuck - repeating patterns and behaviors that don't make them feel successful or happy. I believe a large part of the problem is that there are parts of themselves they have had to submerge very early in life. Some of my clients have suffered early parental loss, medical trauma, physical or sexual abuse, or a traumatic accident. Many describe parents who loved them, but who were unable to meet their emotional needs in significant ways.

I believe trust between a therapist and a client is extremely important. Without trust, regardless the therapy goal(s), progress may be minimal. I enjoy working with clients new to therapy, or are returning. I invite those who have experienced a single incident causing distress or more complex issues related to job/family/career/immigration. Let's talk about the grief/loss and trauma, depression/anxiety, anger, possible deportation, family crisis, or parenting issues (heterosexual/same-sex couples) that have become barriers. I also provide letters of support, treatment summaries, and or therapy for immigration procedures.

“The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction not a destination.” Do you find yourself wondering what you can do to feel better—less anxious, more confident, even happy? It seems like you’ve tried everything but nothing seems to work, at least not for very long. You may be able to support others yet you fall short on supporting yourself. You no longer feel like yourself and worry that it could get worse. Imagine what it would feel like not to constantly worry and to be confident in your ability to handle challenging situations. Therapy is a step in practicing self-awareness and self-care.
