Through a gentle invitation, I ask clients to observe their thoughts and emotions without judgment as they arise and pass, nestling into the session as a place of safety and becoming grounded by the observance of breath. This natural unfolding helps to create spaciousness so that we can begin to navigate through the less than comfortable places within ourselves, looking at them squarely and experiencing them as they are, without repression or indulgence.

Experiencing anxiety is a normal part of life, but sometimes it can start taking over your life, and this is when therapy can help. Sometimes it is hard to know what to do, or hard to do what we want when we are overwhelmed by certain fears, feelings or ideas. This too is when therapy can help. Whether you or your child is experiencing anxiety that is causing distress and limiting life, I would love to work with you. I believe therapy is a collaborative process, which will be driven by your needs, desires, and motivations.

I work with individuals ages 18 and up, as well as couples and parents. I believe symptoms are a request from the psyche to grow -- whether this manifests as depression, anxiety, or just a feeling that you want more from your life or your relationships. Or you may be experiencing a transition, grief, or loss and need support to navigate this change. Therapy creates a space in which healing and growth can happen. I believe humans have a natural, inherent tendency toward health and self-actualization. We are hard-wired to live good and meaningful lives, but sometimes need support to do so.

It's no small thing to ask for help. At whatever pace feels comfortable we'll look at your situation and try to sort out what might be keeping you from the kind of life you want. Together we'll map out short and longer-term goals, developing tools to help you cope with things that right now might feel too big to handle. I strive to create a safe place to be curious about what things in your life are working and what things may need to change.

Psychotherapy is meant to address the roots of mental and emotional struggle, rather than just symptoms. In my practice, we can explore your strengths and challenges, discovering over time what motivates you, what may be contributing to your difficulties, and what helps you thrive. You will have the opportunity to get to know yourself and find ways of living that feel satisfying and fulfilling. My approach is intended to help create more room for your experience and navigate your thoughts and feelings with understanding, compassion, and skill.

I work with clients to understand their current difficulties, thoughts, and feelings as well as look at how their past experiences and relationships impact their current situation. Engaging in therapy has many benefits such as alleviating anxiety and dissatisfaction, learning better coping skills, improving relationships with others, increasing self awareness, and finding greater personal meaning.

If you're experiencing the symptoms on the OCD spectrum (including hair-pulling and skin-picking) , you know how hard it is to have your life ruled by distressing thoughts and physical sensations. What possibilities would become available to you if your anxiety no longer ran your life?

I have interests in working with individuals (and their partners) around reproductive issues and other life transitions. I work from a strength-based, humanistic, and family systems approach in that I view concerns through an individual lens but also through a much broader relational, social, cultural, spiritual, environmental context. I believe that we can make desirable changes and re-discover hidden strengths when we choose to explore our lived experience with awareness.

My therapeutic style is integrative: I draw from a variety of fields of psychology, including psychodynamic, relational, and cognitive-behavioral. Through therapy, we will work together to understand both the origins of presenting issues; clarifying why we act and feel the way we do, and why certain thought and behavioral patterns persist.

No matter how together we appear on the outside, life can feel overwhelming and exhausting if we're hurting on the inside. Challenging circumstances can take us to the edge of our ability to cope, and major life transitions such as the illness/loss of a loved one, trauma, beginning a new phase of life, or changes at home and/or work often leave us feeling full of fear and out of control. Therapy helps you adjust to your situation by teaching you new skills and gaining alternative perspectives.

People often come to therapy struggling with a with a particular feeling, relationship, or question that they can't seem to escape no matter what they do. Why? Research shows us that our struggles are typically about far more than they appear on the surface. Often the problems of our present are deeply rooted in our pasts and the lessons we learned from our families, cultures, and formative experiences. Yet, many are unaware of the learned assumptions that govern their lives, even when they get in their way.
