Making the decision to approach therapy is a positive one, although you may have questions or anxieties around it. Therapy provides an opportunity to reflect on where you are, where you want to be, the way you are living and the choices you are making. At certain points in life we all can feel stuck, face challenges, experience frustrations and a sense of dissatisfaction in the way we live our lives. Therapy offers you a private, confidential space to explore, reflect and be heard, to gain clarity, and challenge yourself.

I specialize in helping people facing uncertain futures. "What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life," asks my favorite poet Mary Oliver. This is the heart of my work. I offer therapy for adults seeking support for anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship issues, stress reduction, and emotional regulation. My clients are high-achieving but feel as if something is missing. As a therapist, I assist clients in developing meaning from the past and discovering new strategies to navigate transitions in a more satisfactory way.

Even the best relationships have their challenges. No matter how much we love our partners and family members, we can’t always expect them to know what we need. I can help you improve communication and increase positive interactions in these relationships using a range of culturally-sensitive and evidence-based techniques. I can also work with you on an individual level to teach you coping skills for mental illness, improve your self-esteem, and help you find better ways to work through life’s challenges.

Your decision to enter the process of therapy is an act of trust that I take seriously and respectfully. I've had the privilege of assisting women, men, couples and youth as they work through the variety of experiences and challenges that make us human. Although I was initially trained in psychodynamic and attachment theory, we may incorporate any of several clinical approaches. What suits the client's needs and preferences is key. Together, we create a supportive atmosphere where what matters to the client can be expressed and explored. More satisfying and effective ways of moving forward can be nurtured.

Therapy to me is a process of discovery and rediscovery, reworking patterns of behavior, or beginning to change thoughts or beliefs that are no longer relevant or useful for our current self and life. It's engaging thoughtfully in your life, taking an active role in your relationship with yourself and others, and fostering the type of self and change that you desire. My role in your process lies around engaging in thoughtful discovery, working through challenges and resistance that comes inherently with the onset of change.

Recognizing the need to work on a problem demonstrates courage. Perhaps you are out of ideas for how to cope with a troubled marriage or a strained relationship with your child or teen. Maybe you are depressed or anxious and nothing you've tried has helped. You might have a vision of how you want life to change, but need a calm and supportive place to work out how to get there. In times like these, you want someone to understand you, help you remember your strengths, and offer some new options.

Therapy works best when it is tailored to your needs. My job is to provide a safe and welcoming place for you to show up just as you are, to feel heard and supported, and to work through the issues that are causing distress. Sometimes we know why we are feeling what we are feeling and sometimes we don’t—both are great places to start therapy. Together we can explore what is happening in your life and find solutions that best suit you. I enjoy working with teens and adults on a wide range of issues and most recently spent time working with adolescents as a school-based therapist in middle school and high school.

We all know that life is full of messiness, but what if we didn’t have to hold it together? What if we didn’t show a version of ourselves or wear a facade? What if we could be really honest about our experiences, thoughts, and feelings? Sometimes it’s hard to find places to allow our chaos, confusion and pain to come out of hiding and be seen. My hope is that you find comfort and safety to allow the mess to show up. I believe therapy offers us the invitation to do something different — to choose a new way. It can be an uncomfortable and powerful offer to be seen, known and heard for who you really are.

Are you struggling with being disillusioned with life?
