Announcement icon COVID-19 update: I am offering remote teletherapy sessions to existing clients only at this time. I am not accepting new clients.
I have devoted my practice to helping teens, college students, and adults create more satisfying, productive, and peaceful lives. I am compassionate and an empathetic listener, striving to create an environment in which my clients feel safe and empowered to learn about themselves, grow and make positive life changes. I believe in providing feedback, support, and teaching my clients valuable CBT based skills. I have a great passion for 'helping people help themselves' and believe in working collaboratively with my clients. I specialize in working with individuals suffering with depression, anxiety, trauma, poor self esteem, relationship issues, caregiver stress, parenting challenges, grief and loss.
Although I have helped individuals overcome and array of emotional challenges, I particularly love working with lost or overwhelmed college students, overachieving/gifted teens, and angry adolescents. Anxious adults overwhelmed by an unhealthy work/home life balance, individuals with poor self esteem, relationship issues, and difficulty adjusting to life transitions are also areas of interest.
If you are looking to schedule an appointment, please feel free to call or e-mail me. Teletherapy/video conferencing may also be available in some circumstances. I look forward to working with you!
