I focus on creating a safe, collaborative, and trusting therapeutic relationship. I base my work on the belief that we are all affected by relationships. This can be relationships with family, partners, friends, co-workers, or even the relationship we have with ourself. How do we repair these relationships? Compassion, empathy, and understanding for ourselves and others. Sometimes other parts of us that feel anger, fear, or sadness can get in the way of this understanding. Psychotherapy can be a way to move through painful emotions and reconnect to your confidence, courage, and creativity.

I know life can be very difficult sometimes and even the most functional or "successful" people may benefit from therapy. I am a seasoned psychologist who understands and can help with the difficulties we can all face, such as mood and anxiety struggles, sense of self or self-esteem issues, relationship concerns, school, job, and career challenges, trauma and grief issues, and/or the existential challenges (life purpose, deep loneliness, etc.) we can all face as humans. I am dedicated to work compassionately and effectively with adolescents and adults, be it via individual therapy, group therapy or family therapy.

At times, we all struggle with the inevitable trials of being human. You may be a parent or partner in a significant relationship struggling with connection, and in need of both practical and emotional support. At times, feelings of anxiety, apathy, and depression arise, and feelings of disconnection and loneliness can take hold. For others, we may be at a crossroads in our life, brought about by divorce, relocation, caregiving for a loved one, or a desire to have a bigger impact in our communities and the world. We may be asking ourselves BIG questions, “what’s next”, “what should I do”, and “what do I want from life”.

For more than twenty years, clients have taught me about frustration, worry, sadness and striving to feel better. I work with clients who want to be happier and less anxious, who want to improve their performance, and who want to interact positively in important relationships. Working together, we identify and increase patterns of behavior and ways of thinking that are most productive, eliminating unhealthy behaviors. I also share tools for growth, updating my clients about research findings pertinent to their concerns. Solution-oriented therapy allows clients to set and achieve their goals, becoming happier and more optimistic in the process.

*TELETHERAPY ONLY* I believe people continue to grow and foster their self-concept over time. Sudden life changes, chronic stress, and ongoing personal difficulties are challenging and affect how we adjust to life transitions. I see therapy as a process aiming to empower individuals to embrace their true self, foster self-awareness and personal growth. I aim to create a trusting environment for individuals and couples to explore recurrent patterns in relationships and cope with distressing emotions. I work with trauma survivors, first responders, law enforcement, and military families. I also specialize in couples counseling.
