I believe that healing often occurs best in the context of a safe and trusting relationship between a client and therapist. As a psychotherapist, I strive to create a secure, caring, and collaborative relationship with each of my clients so that therapy is a place they feel fully seen, heard, understood, and respected. I work from an integrative and holistic perspective, meeting each client where they are and working collaboratively with clients to reach their own personal goals and to create lasting, meaningful change and healing in their lives.

Welcome! You have now taken the first step in seeking out support and I know this may not have been easy. Finding time for self-care is so important, but often is first to go. Do you feel weighed down with general life stress, anxiety, depression, difficult life transitions, work issues, low self-esteem, relationship stress, LGBTQ+ specific stress or even coming into a new awareness of your gender/sexual identity? Have you found yourself struggling to focus on the present, having your past or future concerns pulling you in opposite directions? Perhaps you want to learn how to work with situations you face instead of fighting them.

I am a Clinical Psychologist with over 28 years of experience at the present location. My training is broad based which allows me to tailor my therapeutic approach to the needs of the individual rather than having to force everyone to conform to one particular therapeutic approach. My primary goal for the initial session is to achieve a good understanding of an individual's situation and share my thoughts and recommendations. I believe my effectiveness as a therapist is attributable to having competent clinical skills as well as the ability to establish a good working rapport with people.

I believe a good match between therapist and client is a large part of what makes therapy work. I have a caring, gentle approach and I focus on building strengths and addressing past traumas. EMDR is one of the modalities I find effective in helping clients to deepen their insight and healing. I tend to tailor treatment to address what the client is struggling most with, whether that is symptoms, interpersonal issues, or past traumatic events. I also specialize in helping clients address food addiction issues in a way that is effective and non-blaming.

Psychotherapy is a unique partnership that can help you experience yourself and the world in new ways. Good therapy can help you learn or strengthen skills for coping with life's challenges; identify your life's purpose and harness your own talents; develop better understanding of yourself and others; and increase your capacity for joy. Clients say they find me warm, encouraging, and nonjudgmental. I listen closely and actively, but I don't fit the stereotype of the near-silent therapist. As one client put it, "This feels more like a conversation."
