"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 concerns, 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."

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.

"Welcome. I'm glad you made the decision to seek out help and begin the process of feeling better. For many, this first step is difficult. It's important to find a therapist who is a good match in terms of style and therapeutic approach. My style of therapy is a collaborative process in which we work together to identify what you want your life to be like and how best to make that happen. I work to provide a nonjudgmental space in which clients are better able to discuss difficult topics, keeping an open mind throughout the therapy process."

"*NOT ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS* I’ve found that a key to feeling vital, ironically, is learning to feel bad: learning how to feel and accept painful feelings with less judgement, fear, and struggle.  Sometimes we grip tightly to or push away a difficult emotion, person, or an idea of what should be.  When we grip tightly or push away, we feel controlled, demoralized, and rigid.  When we stop struggling with painful memories, emotions, thoughts, and people we cannot control, we find an unexpected kind of happiness; the kind of happiness that comes of feeling all the complexities of being human with compassion, freedom, and grace."
