I specialize in depression, anxiety , mood disorders, infertility/prenatal/postpartum, interpersonal problem, trauma, LGBTQ issues, codependency, communication, and parenting/family dynamics.
Feeling overwhelmed, anxious, sad, frustrated and uncertain are common human experiences that can leave you disconnected from your best self. I help my clients bridge the gap between where they ARE and where they WANT TO BE by understanding their priorities through a collaborative identification of barriers, fears and hopes. We then design a treatment plan to develop insight about how internal thoughts and belief systems have evolved from unique life experiences and how they influence current interactions and behaviors. Effective strategies to cope with limitations are built upon a foundation of self-awareness.

I specialize in anxiety disorders and am certified in perinatal mental health.
You're tossing and turning with your mind churning over What Ifs or moments that haunt. You feel stressed or overwhelmed; a sense of dread always lurking in the background. Maybe you're snapping at people or pushing them away. It might seem like everyone else is able to do things so much easier or better. Sometimes it seems like you're moving through thick fog. But it doesn't have to be this way.

I have a particular expertise in anxiety , relationships, and illness such as cancer, fibromyalgia, traumatic brain injury, and post-concussion syndrome.
Central to my practice is the belief that all of us deserve respect no matter our histories, and have within ourselves the wisdom for peace and healing. Our individual journeys are at times celebratory and at other times heartbreaking. We may not always be able to choose the circumstances we face such as illness, or the end of a relationship. Instead, we can choose what we are going to do about our challenges. We can choose how to integrate this information into our overall life stories for greater joy, creativity, and balance.

"Out of your vulnerabilities will come your strength.” This quote by Sigmund Freud exemplifies what therapy means to me and it's an honor to be a part of your healing journey. Therapy is a dynamic, collaborative process and that's why I choose to incorporate different therapeutic techniques into my work. Therapy shouldn't be a "one size fits all" experience so we will work together to tailor a plan to put you on the path to healing.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.
