"Becoming your best self, managing natural life transitions, and staying on top of daily stressors takes work. It can be particularly challenging if you are experiencing an unexpected life transition, struggling with emotion regulation, engaging in unhealthy behaviors, or feeling distress and unfulfillment in your relationships. I have been working from a client-centered approach for over 15 years and work to achieve supportive, nonjudgmental and collaborative relationships with my clients. My approach draws from my background training in family systems, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy."

"People seek psychotherapy feeling unhappy or helpless to bring about change in their life or fulfill their dreams. Patients are overcome with symptoms of depression, anxiety, eating disorders, substance abuse or other problems, which in reality are unconscious defenses, blocking repressed feelings about something that went wrong, often in childhood, which is not yet resolved. These defenses once were adaptive, by protecting and helping them survive, but are no longer effective. I help people work through their underlying grief and face their feelings (sadness, anger, disappointment, yearning, powerlessness) surrounding trauma or loss, enabling them to engage in more free, authentic, satisfying lives."
