"I provide psychological support to those experiencing chronic pain or illness as well as to those who care for them. I understand that illness, pain and grief can cause distress and affect one's sense of identity and self-worth, often leading to anxiety and depression. Caregivers, whether it be adult children tending to aging parents, or partners and parents whose loved ones live with a chronic mental or physical illness, also experience an enormous amount of stress and upheaval. It is important for both to have space and time to attend to their wellness needs. Psychotherapy is a positive step toward self-care."

"I became a clinical psychologist because I believe deeply in the reparative power of human relationships. In a number of senses, we become who we are through our interactions with others, and these patterns form the basis of how secure we feel with ourselves and others. I see the therapeutic relationship as a natural vehicle for healing relationship wounds and breaking repetitive self-injurious patterns that dovetail with interpersonal struggles. I invite clients to join me in a collaborative effort to observe and more deeply understand themselves, their relationship patterns, and their characteristic ways of thinking and feeling."
