My practice includes men, women, couples, and families from many social backgrounds.
Many of the individuals I see want to develop a better self-image and free themselves from paralyzing doubts and uncertainties. Others want to achieve a greater sense of satisfaction in intimate relationships, gain relief from anxiety and depression, or reduce the blocks that stop them from pursuing goals and dreams. Through conversation in psychotherapy you increase clarity and understanding - - of thoughts, feelings, and actions -- and thereby gain a greater sense of realism and optimism about your future.

I have a particular and expertise interest in working with women of color, people of color, and teenagers/adolescents.
Life can be tough! But I think we sometimes forget our resilience when life, school, work, and family, throws us twists and turns. Sometimes, we need a little help in balancing all the demands that are placed upon us and that we place upon ourselves. Welcome to your journey to self re/discovery! You have taken a major step towards your goals even by reading this profile. As your Counselor, I see this as a collaborative process. Using a very kind, personable, authentic and non-judgmental approach, we will walk together as you discover your many hidden strengths along the way to hope and healing.

I specialize in working with female and male survivors of neglect, physical, emotional, or sexual abuse, and traumatic loss.
I am a licensed clinical social worker/outpatient clinician with 15 years of mental health experience. I draw from a variety of theoretical orientations, including psychodynamic (insight oriented), cognitive-behavioral (skills development) and relational treatment approaches, but the needs of my clients dictate the specific approaches I employ in our work. Psychotherapy is useful to manage transitions, stresses, and crises. It can also provide a safe and supportive context to address longstanding struggles with depression, anxiety, or other issues. While some people enter therapy in crisis, others use it to optimize their creation of an authentic and meaningful life.

My practice is currently full; I am not taking new clients. I do psychotherapy with women. All kinds of women, from all walks of life. Women who bring a wealth of different problems to the table -- eating disorders, depression, anxiety, histories of trauma -- but who share an underlying desire to restore a sense of power and agency in their lives. My therapeutic approach pulls primarily from psychoanalytic techniques but incorporates aspects of mindfulness and Internal Family Systems techniques to help patients stay present in the therapy and in their relationships.

I offer evaluation and therapy for both those who have identified what the matter is, and those who have not. Someone may come in with an intrapersonal distress-- e.g., depression, or anxiety-- or an interpersonal distress -- e.g., problems in relationships. Either way, I see the process of therapy as dialogue aimed at better understanding the problem; allowing a person to make more informed choices about their behavior and in so doing, feel better.

Everyone I see for the first time simply wants to feel better. They are tired of being alone with their burdens and need help with the problems they are facing. Individuals want to be truly known and heard. I am an active and curious listener and I hope to help people to become more curious about themselves. I think of the first visit as a consultation. It is a time to share what you need help with and to see whether further work could be useful. As a therapist with 35 years of experience, I feel grateful to still love my work.

My specialty is CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS. I would be pleased to see your child or teen via phone or Zoom until offices are open again. The children and teens I see often have difficulty with behavior, impulsivity and self-regulation, with anxiety, depression and self-esteem, or attention and focus at home or in relation to school. Many have a history of struggles making and keeping friends and some get so discouraged at school that they either give up and withdraw or resort to behavior that gets them into trouble.

My approach to therapy centers on building a trusting relationship with the individuals I work with. I recognize that entering in to therapy can be a vulnerable and challenging experience – to speak to a stranger about your thoughts, feelings, fears, and dreams. First and foremost, I strive to create a space that feels grounding, safe, and compassionate. From this space is where I believe individuals can tap in to their inner wisdom, challenge themselves, explore their depth of mind and achieve a greater sense of understanding and peace.

I have 30 years in clinical practice supporting people to better understand their life experiences and the feelings holding them back. I make it comfortable to talk about sensitive topics, like sexuality and difficult relationship problems. As we find recurring themes and self-defeating patterns, you will discover ways to overcome sadness, fear and other emotional obstacles. Problems, once confronted, lead to insights and new found strength, self- acceptance and freedom.
