I specialize in depression and anxiety. Sometimes we are depressed/anxious because of natural events (e.g. a family loss, career challenges, etc...), and other times we feel depressed/anxious without knowing why, as if our mind was hiding the distress source. Whether we are able or unable to make out the reasons of our depression/anxiety, therapy can be a journey of self-discovery to alleviate these problems.

While I have extensive experience treating adults and adolescents of all ages, many patients I see in my practice are in their 20’s-30's. Often they have experienced significant trauma in their lives that has resulted in intense feelings of depression and anxiety. Often, there is disruption and disappointment in relationships. This work can be challenging in ways we cannot always predict, so it is important that the therapist and patient together create a safe space in which to work that supports increasing awareness. I believe this can only be achieved when people are making progress in real-time towards more fulfilling lives.

I believe most psychological pain stems from a disconnection with one’s sense of purpose and meaning. In times of physical and mental stress, we often stray from our values and what brings us joy. Therapy serves as an integrative process that allows for a reconnection with what brings you a sense of meaning. Therapy allows you to heal through feeling heard and understood. My role is to guide you through the tough spots on your journey to help you continue on your desired path.

I have significant training and experience with a range of therapeutic models including Narrative therapy, Trauma-informed care, Solution-focused therapy, etc. I believe people at times come to therapy when parts of life are not feeling in line with desires/intentions for how they want their experience to be. I believe in the power and safety of therapeutic conversations to acknowledge and witness problems affecting clients (children, individuals, couples, families, etc) and together explore new possibilities which fit the person/couple/family.

How can I make sure that sheltering in place with my partner doesn't overwhelm our relationship? What can you learn about yourself under this condition? Am I tolerant enough?

My background and experience are quite varied, including psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, family systems, and neuropsychological perspectives. This allows me to approach each situation with a unique focus on the need of the individual or individuals involved, and to provide treatment tailored to those needs (rather than to narrow conceptualization on my part of what psychotherapy 'is'). I also frequently draw upon the practice of meditation in helping people cope with anxiety, depression, learning issues, impulsivity, addiction, and so on. My commitment is to helping people gain both self-understanding and the ability to make substantive changes in behavior.
