The focus in my approach to therapy is to provide practical, tried and true, treatment that meet your values. We can work on a myriad of issues, some of which are handling transition periods, growing up, disconnection amongst family, relationship conflicts, addiction, or you’re worried about a possible condition like anxiety or depression. Do any of these questions resonate with you? Are you mistreating yourself or are those around you treating you poorly? Do you feel like people don’t understand you? Have there been times when you feel like you’re bored with life? Is your child seen as timid and have they been bullied?

How do I know if my sexual behavior is out of control? For many men this question is very subjective and they unfortunately wait for a spouse, loved one or their employer to discover their hidden sexual life before considering help. At The Harvey Institute we believe the most important person to evaluate his personal conflict with regulating sexual behavior is the man experiencing the dilemma. We help men contemplate "What is your conflict with your sexual behavior?" and "What is your vision for your sexual health?" We strive to provide a safe, sexually informed and confidential space for sexual health conversations.

Eating disorder symptoms such as binge eating, purging, restriction and over exercising are only some of the many eating disordered behaviors we use to cope with life. These symptoms become a way to distract from our fears and unmet needs. Over time we can become lost in the ruminating thoughts of body image, calories, weight, clean eating and exercise.

My priority first and foremost is to build trust in the client-therapist relationship. It can be challenging to share painful thoughts and emotions with others, so I believe it is a privilege whenever I am allowed into someone’s internal world. I take a holistic and collaborative approach to therapy, working with clients to address life transitions, family or relationship issues, overwhelming emotions, and self-harm. Having worked extensively with ethnically- and gender- diverse populations, I especially enjoy helping adolescents and adults explore their sense of identity and find meaningful roles in their communities.
