"Are you unappreciated? Do you have trouble with intimacy and relationships? Do you feel unfulfilled? Are you depressed or stressed out and feel as if you just "can't go on"? Choosing a psychotherapist is an important--and often difficult--decision. I practice psychotherapy that it is interactive: I respond to what my clients tell me; I offer advice when appropriate; and provide guidance for deeper understanding when this can be helpful."

"My practice specializes in treating children, adolescents and adults across the life span, with a special interest in helping 18- to 30-year-olds navigate young adulthood. My style derives from psychodynamic, family systems, relational and cognitive schools of psychotherapy. As an individual and family therapist, I offer a warm, compassionate, accepting environment where clients can safely explore personal issues and family members can learn new ways of understanding each other and being together. My aim is to my help clients deepen their self-awareness, change self-defeating patterns and beliefs, and develop new ways of thinking, feeling, and relating to others."

"You are used to putting up appearances: struggling to look carefree while intensely hating your body, pretending to be happy in a relationship, acting fulfilled as a mother, faking confidence at work, all the while numbing your loneliness, anxiety and insecurity with self-punishing thoughts, behaviors, food and substances. You find yourself saying "yes" when you really mean to say "no" but don't want to hurt the other person's feelings. Because of that, you feel that you're living someone else's life, doing what you think other people want you to do, and it's draining."

"Grieving the death of a loved one, the loss of a relationship, a decline in health, or any other life transition can be a lonely, painful, and confusing time. Your friends and family may want you to be "back to normal" but you may feel anything but "normal." I can help you to heal from your losses whether recent or in the past by providing therapeutic counseling in a safe nurturing environment. I worked in hospice for 11 years as a grief therapist. I have seen people not only heal from their losses but find new meaning and hope."

"Many people in our society go through life at war with themselves, feeling insecure, anxious, unworthy, and unlovable. When we constantly struggle to accept parts of ourselves, symptoms such as anxiety and depression can develop, and have a negative impact on our personal relationships, careers, educational goals, and our ability to live fully. Discrimination on the basis of race, gender, sexuality, ability, and gender identity can cause or exacerbate feelings of low self-esteem or worthlessness. As a therapist, I offer a warm, accepting approach that is deeply influenced by radical acceptance, mindfulness, psychodynamic theory, and feminist practice."

"Do your emotions sometimes feel “bigger” than you expected? Is your inner critic sometimes the loudest voice in your head? Does perfectionism make completing tasks painful and complicated? Are stuck beliefs causing you to repeat patterns that you desperately want to stop, but you don’t know how? I can support you in unpacking these difficult questions and more, as we get to the root causes and make lasting change. Together, we’ll process the experiences that caused these beliefs, and we’ll tap into your inner strength and resilience to forge a new pathway. As a trauma-informed therapist, I support people in overcoming events in their lives that have had a significant or traumatic impact on them. Violence, neglect, loss, injury, illness, medical procedures, divorce/separation, infidelity, hurtful words from a caregiver or other loved one—any of these can leave a lasting impact. I provide a safe space in which to heal trauma. I recognize that a lot of what we call "symptoms" or "disorders" are actually resourceful and protective responses to danger, that have only become problematic as they got stuck on "autopilot"; naming them as such is an essential step toward healing.
