You are much more more than a diagnosis or category! It is a challenge for us all to make meaning in a chaotic world. I work with creative people, perfectionists, harsh self-critics and existential struggles in singles, couples & groups. I have expertise in helping people recognize problematic substance use, with Harm Reduction as a philosophical approach. Cross-cultural sensitivity is a great value. I enjoy working with young and early-career adults. I enjoy learning from the people I see.

My clinical expertise draws from a person-centered approach centering on sex therapy, Gottman Method Couples Therapy, CBT, DBT, trauma informed, narrative, holistic, existential, mindfulness, and expressive therapy.
Life presents to us a consistent ebb and flow of challenges. As we navigate these, we are guided by our sense of identity, our past experiences, and the patterns we have learned. Often, however, these solutions do not serve us in the present and take the form of habits of mind and action which hold us back, shape our relationships, and create the illusion of false limitations; but there is hope. We are able to shape our lives through changing our patterns, the way we think and communicate, and the actions we learn to take. Through self understanding we may update our narrative and with it transform our realities.

I believe in an individualized approach based on emotional recognition, mindfulness, and strengths/values. I've also worked within the realms of performance and exercise psychology, both of which can play a supplemental role in treatment. I often draw from a variety of expressive therapies to channel the best form of communication, the first priority being to generate a comfortable, trusting environment.

Finding the right therapist can be challenging. It takes courage to begin the process. Perhaps you're feeling stuck in some pattern that hasn't been working for a while. Or maybe you are going through a crisis period of change, loss, or emergency. Whatever it is, sometimes we just need time and space with someone who can listen, really hear us, and occasionally ask questions that help us gain a helpful shift in perspective.

I help young, dynamic professionals and students deal with the anxiety and overwhelm that can creep up on you as you're out there doing what you always thought you were supposed to be doing. You work really hard professionally or academically but it's getting harder to hold it all together as you wrestle with the doubts and the stress. Your relationships might be feeling less than happy and fulfilling lately, or you're just plain overwhelmed. On the outside, you look like you have it all together - but that doesn't make you feel OK on the inside.

I have been a psychotherapist for 15 years.

I specialize in self-esteem, self-actualization, and helping men build and maintain attraction and intimacy. The foundation for male self-esteem begins in childhood and sets the foundation for men to share themselves in relationships, feel successful, and being a meaningful part of their children's lives. I also specialize in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in men and women, as well as recovery from abusive relationships.

I have a holistic view of people and believe that healing occurs through relationship. I also believe that every person experiences the desire for connection and growth, even, perhaps especially, when we feel lost. I believe we all fall away from our core selves at times, and need help reconnecting with our inner compass.

As a psychodynamic therapist with extensive training in existential philosophy, I will work with you to establish a relationship that creates space in your life for movement and change.
People come to therapy for all sorts of reasons, yet a common thread unites this motivation: the desire to understand one's inner experience in an authentic way. Therapy presents an opportunity to be curious, to foster new depths of understanding, and to develop a greater sense of meaning in your life. The therapeutic relationship provides a space to explore an intuitive understanding of yourself. The core of my therapeutic work is to help people articulate deeply held longings, and to decide if and how to manifest them in the world.

**July 2020: I am not currently accepting new clients.** My calling is to bring the best out of others, no matter if their best feels shrouded, and no matter how difficult the challenges. In my experience, there are limits to what can be achieved by banging your head against the wall with logic, technique and coping skills (though they have their place and I absolutely use them as needed). I help people learn to work with emotions and get to the core for lasting change, which is accomplished by creating the safe and secure environment critical for deeper insights and healing that endures.
