The decision to seek therapy takes courage. I aim to provide a non-judgmental space that allows you to feel comfortable and understood. The best outcome in therapy comes from a trusting and collaborative relationship between the therapist and you. In my work, one of the main outcomes is for you to appreciate your strengths, how you have used your strengths to overcome previous challenges, and how you can use them to face current and future situations.

"Picking up the telephone to make an initial appointment to see a psychologist, can be difficult for many people for various reasons. One may be feeling wounded, lost, or stuck. I am dedicated to helping children, adolescents, and families begin to heal and get "unstuck" by freeing themselves of distressing and sometimes debilitating feelings such as depression, anxiety, and feeling out of control. I believe awareness and insight into your child's feelings and behaviors and your feelings and behaviors, is the great gift of psychotherapy. At its best, psychotherapy is a rewarding, productive, and at times, fun experience."

My work begins with taking the time to understand each, unique individual. This collaborative, compassionate yet thought provoking process is called "the talking cure," and it can be life changing. I am a curious listener, and through our weekly conversations you will learn to reflect on what you are experiencing differently - this is why psychotherapy works. I am always sure to provide a safe and respectful environment in order to change maladaptive patterns of thinking, behaving or feeling that stem from past experiences and underlie presenting symptoms, while working on practical solutions to immediate problems.

Food can be associated with love, family, and joy. Other times, food is associated with anxiety, frustration, depression, boredom, self-doubt and other negative emotions. If eating is constantly on your mind, if others encourage you to "stop obsessing over food," or if you believe your desire to eat is based on emotions rather than conquering hunger then I strongly believe we can work as a team to get your life back on track. As a team, we work on coping skills and altering negative thoughts so that you are able to take back control of your life.

All clients are unique as are all therapists. Research has shown that clients benefit the most from therapy, when there is a strong match between client and therapist. I encourage my clients ability to unpack and explore their worldview in a safe place. I am sensitive, to how considering new perspectives can be both scary and challenging. Courageously re-framing severe distress as a logical, biological and psychological response to environmental conditions, guides my practice. I work with adolescents, adults, individuals and families.

I connect deeply and empathically with my clients, and challenge them towards greater self-awareness that leads to happiness and peace of mind internally and within relationships. Individuals and couples inevitably reach periods of frustration and conflict that signal the need for change. Whether these problems are grounded in past loss or current misfortune, outside intervention can offer immediate relief. I specialize in treating mood disorders, couples in gridlock, and adult children with a legacy of trauma, neglect or codependency. Working with adults and couples, I approach difficulties compassionately and non-pathologically. Psychotherapy helps restore emotional balance and well-being.
