Working from a perspective of radical acceptance, I am looking forward to working with clients who are currently navigating challenging life transitions. I am adept at working with adolescents and young adults, primarily around issues of perfectionism, anxiety, and self-esteem. As a former Division I athlete, I have the skills and experience to work closely with clients who are currently negotiating the stressful and unique challenges associated with high level athletics, at the high school, collegiate, or professional level.

Are you feeling anxious, overwhelmed, or unsure of your purpose in life? Are you hurt and unsure if you are ready to move on, but just can’t seem to uncover a new path? Some people just need someone to listen, get their experience, and understand how life is for them. You may have tried the same old things, which don’t seem to be working anymore. It’s often hard to ask for help, and seems a bit strange if you haven't been to therapy before.

Life transitions and struggles offer the opportunity to find greater clarity of purpose, more meaningful relationships, increased confidence, and personal satisfaction. To be human is to feel emotion, both the highs and the lows. We are all connected through not only these experiences, but through the relationships with those around us. Therapy is a unique and personal journey built on mutual trust and respect. My perspective is strengths-based, LGBTQIA-affirmative, and integrative. I work with individuals of all backgrounds, bodies, and beliefs. My approach is individualized and collaborative.

In my office I offer clients a warm and supportive therapeutic environment where issues can be successfully addressed and resolved. But it is only with the client's effort and desire to change that psychotherapy is most successuful. Through the years I have found that a direct approach in therapy is most valuable as it allows us both to target those beliefs and behaviors which may require change.

Throughout my 25 years as a therapist, I have focused on issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, self harm, suicidal thoughts, and oppositional/defiance. Many of my clients also describe themselves as Neurodivergent. No matter what the issues may be, I find that people often start therapy because they feel stuck and are seeking ways to move forward. We work together to develop concrete goals such as making a new friend or just getting out of bed everyday. Other clients in my practice are searching for a safe place to work through their pain. Whatever your starting place, you are welcome here.

I work with people who are looking to understand what they’re struggling with so that they can live a more fulfilling and satisfying life. Together we’ll try to understand the issue that brought you to therapy, and other issues that may come to the surface along the way. With insight often comes the knowledge of what you would like to be different, or how to best manage the circumstances you’re facing.

Talking about sex can be very uncomfortable and feel awkward. It can be made worse by issues with our pelvic floor or reproductive system. This can leave you feeling disconnected from your body and/or your partner. Maybe you're noticing that you're avoiding sex or having sex that is painful or not pleasurable. Confusion, loneliness, shame, frustration are all common emotions that show up when we want something different in our sex lives but don't know how. I specialize in helping individuals and couples struggling with sex and pelvic floor dysfunction reconnect to themselves and each other through somatic and sex based therapies.

I see psychotherapy as a partnership and a process, where the client is the expert about their own life and the therapist is a guide. My emphasis is on helping clients change unhelpful behavior and thinking patterns that prevent them from building and maintaining positive and lasting relationships. The core of good therapy is based on building a relationship of trust, empathy and respect for the client. I provide an environment of safety and trust where we can explore issues, fears, concerns, and hopes. My goal is to transfer knowledge, skills and confidence so, eventually, you won’t need me!

You are painfully aware of not feeling seen, heard, or validated by the people you desperately want to feel close to. In social situations, you may get in your own way- stuck in your head with anxiety about judgment or about saying the ‘right’ thing. You have a hard time falling asleep as you replay conversations in your head wondering what went wrong. More than anything else, you want to feel connected – to friends who don’t judge you; to a partner you can feel comfortably vulnerable with; and to yourself in a way that’s kind and compassionate.
