I specialize in assisting members of the LGBTQ+ community. However, I have considerable expertise and interest in helping those suffering from a wide range of issues from mild mental health issues to severe and persistent mental illness. I believe taking the step of seeking out therapy is a positive one and one that can benefit anyone. I tailor each therapy session to the individual client as well as the therapy goals that may (and frequently do) shift while progress is made during the therapy process. I view the therapy process as a journey taken by both therapist and client.

I have 10+ years of background offering therapy in the field of addictions, anxiety and depressive disorders, as well as LGBTQ issues, individual and couples therapy, trauma and mood disorders.
Do you feel stuck in life, unable to move forward, to grow? Life can feel out of control leading to feelings of anxiety, depression, anger, frustration, loneliness, isolation and boredom. These feelings can lead to unhealthy coping skills and acting out with drugs, alcohol, sex, food, spending, gambling, etc. I focus on helping my clients regain control and develop healthy coping skills. My practice combines cognitive behavioral therapy with motivational interviewing and mindfulness to help find solutions in the here and now.

"The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled... it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of ruts and start searching for different ways and truer answers" (M. Scott Peck). Life sometimes leaves us feeling uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled.

Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP) is an approach to therapy that demands full and active collaboration between the patient and therapist. The patient is expected to bring a will to live as fulfilled and happy a life as possible. In using ISTDP I approach the patient's time as invaluable, and believe the wisest approach is to be up front with the patient immediately and continuously, to bring relief from suffering in the fastest and safest way possible. Therapy is typically conducted on a weekly basis following the initial evaluation until goals are achieved.
