I help people who feel overwhelmed, uncertain about how to deal with life, and are just stuck. If you’re like most people who come to see me, you’re probably not even sure why you’re feeling so bad and what you’ve tried to fix it isn’t working. On top of all of this, there isn’t anyone to turn to for help. You don’t have to struggle through this on your own. As a psychologist for over 15 years, I've learned why most people struggle, what stops them from getting better, and what they can do to fix it right away. I’ve helped hundreds of clients overcome these problems.

Grief has the uncanny ability to infiltrate so many areas of our life. Most people want to live well even when grief has made that difficult to do. I want to extend a space to explore and clarify one's relationship to grief, their dreams and desires, and sense of meaning. Likewise, fellow helpers may encounter burn out and stress impacting them in ways they don't prefer. My hope is to offer people a space to unpack what they identify as problematic and construct what is meaningful, important, and cherished to them.

My ideal client is commited to personal growth. I believe we are all fragile creatures, yet capable of resilience. We experience painful thought/feeling states and then we weave stories to explain them. Narrative Therapy has been a natural fit for me: the client defines the goals, we examine the details of self-limiting stories, including family and cultural "scripts." We work to co-create stories about identity that have more space for possibilities and emotional resilience.

Waitlist for new clients
*NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS - WAITLIST ONLY* Poet Anne Sexton wrote, "That the worst of anyone Can be, finally, An accident of hope." If you're here, you probably feel at your worst. Maybe a traumatic event has left you feeling broken and lost. Perhaps what you've been doing to cope just isn't working anymore, or is doing more harm than good. Whatever your reasons, I'm glad you're thinking about therapy. This process can be scary and takes hard work, and I welcome anyone courageous enough to seek out hope.
