Sometimes life is just hard; it hurts and things just don’t seem fair or right. Perhaps you are experiencing loss, a struggle, dealing with grief, setbacks in life, feelings of sadness or despair, anxious or just unsure of how to cope. Life feels upside down. While such feelings are difficult and real, pain and growth in life can coexist. What is most important is, today you have taken a positive first step seeking support. You have made a choice to do something different with your life. Our mind, which means our thinking, our brain and our body serve as indicators of what's working or not. Thinking gets stuck or we miss signals.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have experience working with adolescents, adults, and families for over 8 years. As a therapist, I believe that we have most of the tools we already need to make change. Therapy is simply a place where these tools can be identified and strengthened. I also believe people make lasting change through interpersonal relationships. Effective therapeutic treatment occurs through a meaningful, empowering, and reparative relationship. In therapy, I focus on relationships and how these impact our past & present relationships. I have experience with trauma, anxiety, depression, and attachment issues.

As a therapist and human being, I believe understanding our emotions is important in all aspects of our lives. I truly enjoy getting to know how others experience emotions and can help in the identification and regulation of hurtful and unwanted emotions. I feel grateful to be able to offer you a therapeutic environment wherein you can discuss painful experiences, thoughts and emotions and learn to cope and resolve those experiences in safe space. I will help you learn and cope with difficult, intense emotions, grief, mood symptoms, and ineffective behaviors through warmth, acceptance, and gentle nudging towards change.

I specialize in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). My approach to psychotherapy is collaborative, creative, evidence-based, results-oriented, flexible, and holistic. People often arrive at psychotherapy when they want to deal with problems, alleviate emotional suffering, make a change, move in a new direction, or find well-being. I try to balance acceptance and change, acknowledging that the first step towards change is accepting reality. I think the therapeutic relationship needs to be a real and genuine connection. I value being kind, genuine, thoughtful, direct, honest, and playful as a person and a therapist.

While a specific problem may bring you in, I believe that my clients are often helped by gaining insight into (and ultimately, mastery over) long-standing patterns in relationships, feelings, or behaviors. This approach (called insight-oriented, psychodynamic or psychoanalytic treatment) helps to create lasting change, in addition to symptom management that is part of all therapeutic approaches. My experience working with children and families is particularly helpful even to adult clients, who often wish to explore how early experiences have influenced their present-day lives and relationships.

Both children and adults can get stuck and need support from a therapist to grow into a happier place. Though it is a universal experience, it can be difficult to navigate alone. During sessions you will receive unconditional acceptance and the support you need to heal and grow. New ways of thinking and relating then lead to emotional well being. In my practice I provide individual and family therapy for children, adolescents and adults.

I believe therapy is about empowering individuals, couples, and families to resolve their unique issues by gaining a better understanding of themselves, others and their current situations. I also work with individuals to identify underlying issues that effect one's sense of self and unsatisfying relationships. Goals for many of my clients include identity development, increasing self-esteem, experiencing more meaningful relationships, gaining a stronger understanding of themselves, finding a sense of fulfillment and meaning in life, and resolving longstanding issues that keep them from achieving their desires and goals.
