In my 30+ years of experience as a therapist, I have worked with a wide and very diverse array of clients, whose issues have ranged from mild and transient to severe and chronic. I opened my private practice roughly seven years ago, having worked previously for various mental health agencies. I have a special interest in working with gay and lesbian clients, who may be having associated lifestyle or relationship issues. I also have a special interest in adults who were abused or neglected as children and who struggle with depression or chronic esteem problems as adults.

People experience challenging times throughout life, and these challenges do not need to be confronted alone. My philosophy is that while clients are the experts of their own lives, empathy and expertise can be instrumental to navigating change or transition during any stage of life. As a pre-licensed MFT with over six years of experience, I am aware that the decision to seek therapy can often feel uncertain. Through an eclectic systems therapy approach, I offer guidance with compassion as individuals, couples and families explore underlying emotions, perspectives, and personal or relational needs contributing to their challenges.

I work with clients ranging in age from adolescence through adulthood. Therapists typically describe themselves by listing the disorders they treat, such as depression, anxiety, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Though I have significant experience with all of these issues, I view many symptoms as important expressions of an internal struggle that may have begun long before clients seek therapy. These symptoms often and understandably create misery, but I believe that approaching them with curiosity may ultimately provide a path to reducing or even eliminating them.

I feel that therapy should be a safe space for clients to explore feelings and identify their stress in a nonjudgmental space. Often anxieties, anger, and disruptive behaviors are a symptom of internal distress that has not been worked through. My goal is to assist clients in identifying the source of their distress and find strategies to better cope with and communicate their needs within their relationships, family system, and schools.
