My practice is dedicated to helping individuals effectively navigate life challenges. My approach is non-judgmental and supportive. I strongly believe in the importance of the therapeutic relationship. Because of the vulnerability involved in exploring your feelings, it is imperative that you feel safe and trusting of me. Together, we will process your feelings. This often leads to better relationships, solutions to specific problems, and better coping skills. My focus is to collaborate with you on creating your personal goals and to offer you a comfortable environment to work through issues that are causing you unhappiness.

As a therapist and human being, I believe understanding our emotions is important in all aspects of our lives. I truly enjoy getting to know how others experience emotions and can help in the identification and regulation of hurtful and unwanted emotions. I feel grateful to be able to offer you a therapeutic environment wherein you can discuss painful experiences, thoughts and emotions and learn to cope and resolve those experiences in safe space. I will help you learn and cope with difficult, intense emotions, grief, mood symptoms, and ineffective behaviors through warmth, acceptance, and gentle nudging towards change.

I specialize in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). My approach to psychotherapy is collaborative, creative, evidence-based, results-oriented, flexible, and holistic. People often arrive at psychotherapy when they want to deal with problems, alleviate emotional suffering, make a change, move in a new direction, or find well-being. I try to balance acceptance and change, acknowledging that the first step towards change is accepting reality. I think the therapeutic relationship needs to be a real and genuine connection. I value being kind, genuine, thoughtful, direct, honest, and playful as a person and a therapist.

While a specific problem may bring you in, I believe that my clients are often helped by gaining insight into (and ultimately, mastery over) long-standing patterns in relationships, feelings, or behaviors. This approach (called insight-oriented, psychodynamic or psychoanalytic treatment) helps to create lasting change, in addition to symptom management that is part of all therapeutic approaches. My experience working with children and families is particularly helpful even to adult clients, who often wish to explore how early experiences have influenced their present-day lives and relationships.

CURRENTLY NOT ABLE TO ACCEPT NEW CLIENTS. I have spent a career helping individuals and families who are struggling with life stress and life changes. Many of my clients are in the process of adapting to a new culture, making major life transitions or dealing with issues after living abroad for many years. These transitions can easily leave you feeling sad, anxious, and isolated, and can change the way you feel about your life and your relationships. I can help bridge the challenges you are facing with creating a life that feels more settled, satisfying and meaningful.

You don't have to struggle alone in your difficulties. You can access encouragement and strength to live well. I offer a safe harbor and secure relationship for you to discuss your needs and problems. I enjoy working with people who feel stuck in negative situations or relationships, but feel puzzled about how to improve or change them. Collaboratively, we solve problems and/or rework the patterns that perpetuate the negative situations. We would explore any contributions of the past to the present so you can detach from the old patterns. Eventually, you will feel freer and more empowered to make desired choices in life.

Both children and adults can get stuck and need support from a therapist to grow into a happier place. Though it is a universal experience, it can be difficult to navigate alone. During sessions you will receive unconditional acceptance and the support you need to heal and grow. New ways of thinking and relating then lead to emotional well being. In my practice I provide individual and family therapy for children, adolescents and adults.

I believe therapy is about empowering individuals, couples, and families to resolve their unique issues by gaining a better understanding of themselves, others and their current situations. I also work with individuals to identify underlying issues that effect one's sense of self and unsatisfying relationships. Goals for many of my clients include identity development, increasing self-esteem, experiencing more meaningful relationships, gaining a stronger understanding of themselves, finding a sense of fulfillment and meaning in life, and resolving longstanding issues that keep them from achieving their desires and goals.
