CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. Keeping things inside us is a terrible, lonely weight. It may start off feeling manageable, but it eventually builds up. Often we find it difficult to share with others, because we don’t want to burden them or be seen as “needy.” At these points, I think we just need someone to be honest with about our experiences and needs, without fear of judgment. When we notice we’re having the same thoughts and problems coming up repeatedly, we might need a push to get us unstuck. When an old hurt arises, we may need the space to explore it and the skills to ground ourselves in the present.

I value the power of the relationship between therapist and client and honoring my clients is foundational to my practice. I have been described as warm, authentic, welcoming, loyal, and someone safe with whom to disclose deeper feelings and experiences. I attempt from the first session to hone in and appreciate my clients' strengths, to listen deeply with genuine compassion, and to hold my clients' shared story with great value and reverence. I seek to facilitate the therapy office as a place where the inner wisdom of the client-- the inner self--can safely emerge.

You’ve been carrying the anxiety around for far too long. No one really knows what it's like to be you and it feels utterly lonely. But you are at the point, where you want to find hope again and see if there is a chance that it doesn’t have to be this way. You feel anxious and so alone. As a woman you are navigating relationships with your intimate partner and friends, and struggling with difficult and lonely feelings about your life, family, and career. Whether you have a relationship or are embarking on a new one, planning a family or maintaining one, or moving into the empty nest syndrome, there is so much to worry about.

I believe a trusting and collaborative therapeutic relationship will help you increase self awareness, understanding and the acceptance needed to bring about positive change and growth. It is equally as important to focus on your strengths as it is to focus on the areas of your life you find to be challenging. Therapy provides an opportunity to learn more about yourself and better understand your life choices as well as assist you in better understanding your most important relationships, past and present.

It takes courage to go to therapy, especially when you feel stuck. That is why I appreciate the importance of a safe, nurturing and non-judgemental environment. There you can explore who you are, what is important to you and to repair what is keeping you from moving forward, whether it is depression/anxiety, relationship issues or an eating disorder. Once you have self-awareness, strategies and support, you will be able to make better choices and be the person you want to be.

I believe that the benefit of psychotherapy is that it allows one to explore and develop new ways of experiencing challenges and opportunities. My style as a therapist is collaborative yet challenging and, above all, genuine. My work is informed by an attachment perspective, which translates to a focus on understanding the emotions and needs that drive individuals to act or react (to others) in a given manner. If you are experiencing relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression or simply a sense that you're not living the life that you would like, I may be able to help you find the new direction you're seeking.

Women who are stressed from work, children, caregiving, relationships, finances, or all of the above may find it challenging to engage fully in their own lives. If taking time for yourself seems like a luxury versus a necessity, it can be extremely challenging to be present for others.

The most courageous and compassionate act one can perform is the request for help. People often believe if they pay attention to a problem that they will make it worse or that the pain associated with the problem will overwhelm them. Yet in my clinical experience and in my own life, the opposite is in fact true. The longer we ignore pain or a problem, the worse it gets. I believe it is in the confronting of our problems that we begin to heal and discover that we are much stronger than we thought.
