I work with people in a warm, supportive way that bolsters their internal strengths and resources but that also challenges them and invites change. While helping people feel better as quickly as possible, I also help them grow personally, understand themselves more deeply, have more rewarding relationships, and make deep, lasting change. Creativity, spontaneity, and sense of humor are important to me and I try to incorporate these qualities into all of my work. I most often see people individually but frequently work with couples, helping them work through difficulties and enhance their connection with each other.

Psychotherapy is my second career. As an attorney, I enjoyed working one-on-one with people, and I found myself drawn to my client's personal stories. After many years in law, I decided that a career as a therapist was my true passion. I employ a variety of approaches in my work including Dialetical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Internal Family Systems. I have particular expertise in helping trauma survivors. I help people heal from complex trauma by providing a safe, caring, non-judgmental therapeutic environment.

What I know for sure is that the world that they prepared us for doesn't exist! Sometimes it feels like everyone else is getting it right & we are the ones still finding our footing! You are not alone. You are not the only person that is finding it harder to pretend to be "OKAY" & "pushing through." You are not the only one feeling raggedy and overwhelmed by all the expectations and standards set on us. You are not the only one that has reached the breaking point. You are not the only one that needs a guide into a new way of being. You are here because you know there HAS to be something else. You know you want to live more fully!

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.

Choosing to engage in a therapeutic relationship will help to enhance understanding of self, others and your environment.

Sometimes people need a safe place and a non-judgmental guide to help them understand their thoughts and feelings so they can heal and move forward in life. I work best with clients that are collaborative and engaged in the process of understanding and healing.

Feeling overwhelmed? Anxious? Angry? Depressed? Lost? We all face struggles in our lives, and more often than not, it's easier to bear those struggles when we have someone to talk with, to help us hear ourselves and gain a better understanding and perspective than we were able to envision before. Whether you are a young adult seeking direction, a parent with anger issues impacting your family, a person trying to maintain addiction recovery, or a high achiever trying to alleviate anxiety, I see it as my role to help you identify your innate strengths and develop your self compassion in order to help you flourish.

Can you remember the last time you didn’t feel stressed? Has stress become your new normal? You feel depressed and have unrelenting anxiety. You feel stuck and wish the world would slow down. And your body is in a knot - stomach aches, muscle tension, stiff neck, tight jaw. You might be struggling from a lifelong illness, like cancer, going through a life changing event like divorce or job loss, or grieving the loss of a loved one, or don't know why you feel the way you do. You just know you don't like it and you want to feel better. Something has GOT to change.

It takes a great deal of courage to seek counseling when you are struggling with depression, anxiety, or other challenges in your life. Taking the step to pursue counseling reveals your strength to recognize that you matter. You deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. Your thoughts and feelings have value. Counseling can help you explore your emotions in a safe space, help you change unwanted behaviors or develop new, healthier ones, reduce distress, and increase happiness. Doing the hard work of therapy, through the supportive relationship with a therapist, can help you feel more like your self again.

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.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
