I believe first and foremost in the importance of the therapeutic relationship. I understand that beginning the work of psychotherapy can be a challenging and sometimes scary thing. Finding a therapist with whom you can build a trusting relationship is essential to the success of your treatment. Through honest and warm communication I create an environment where clients can feel supported and cared for throughout our work together. My specialties include anxiety disorders, trauma and related disorders, depression and mood disorders, and sports performance and injury recovery. I work with adults 18-year-old and older.

I REGRET MY PRACTICE IS CURRENTLY FULL, BUT I AM HAPPY TO INCLUDE YOU ON MY WAITLIST. We can all benefit from understanding ourselves a bit better. I offer a collaborative approach to therapy that emphasizes gaining a better understanding of your own unique emotional experiences, reactions, behaviors and motivations, and exploring how these patterns of responding to your world developed and evolved over time. Together we will sort through what is working and what is not working, replacing unhelpful habits, responses and interpretations with new helpful strategies, and strengthening adaptive skills you may already possess.

Psychotherapy helps people face what is difficult in their lives. Beyond providing relief and support, growth in therapy leads to increased agency and purpose, more satisfying relationships, and to greater spontaneity and flexibility. I see people with complex histories who present with anxiety, depression, and relationship problems. I am engaged, committed and practical in my approach to helping people. I continue to train in experiential dynamic therapy models, which help clients access emotions and outgrow longstanding and broken coping strategies. These models include AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy), IFS (Internal Family Systems), EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples) and ISTDP (Intensive Short-term Dynamic Psychotherapy).
