Sometimes life stress piles up and we find ourselves needing to talk things through with someone. Starting or returning to therapy is a courageous step so it’s important to find the right therapist. I work with people who may be struggling with anxiety at work or in relationships, emotional pain from the past, struggles with sex and intimacy, and navigating life transitions. Often times my clients want to see changes take shape in their life. These changes may look like feeling more confident and self-assured, more present with the people they care most about, enjoying a more fulfilling sex life, and a sense of self-mastery.

The clients who come to me are having difficulty creating the lives that they want for themselves. Sometimes this is due to trauma in their background and other times it is due to other things that are blocking their personal goals such as grief or a break-up/divorce. Clients who work best with me are ones who want to build their internal resources so that they can knowingly move forward in whatever direction they choose.

You want to feel grounded and secure in your relationships. You want to feel comfortable as yourself. You deserve this and so much more. With a background in marriage and family therapy, I see people in the context of their relationships. Every day, our lives are impacted by those around us and that may not always be an easy thing. I hope to help queer-identified individuals and partners find strength, intimacy, support and passion in their relationships.

We live in a fast-paced, increasingly abbreviated, and relentlessly future-oriented society that upholds certain life trajectories and promises swift and universal solutions to all of our problems. However, during our darkest hours, things can take a disorienting turn when we try to make sense of all of the moving pieces. We find this world of contradictions overwhelmingly turbulent and polluted with uncertainty. We isolate, we reach out, we give up, we try to survive- the answer is never clear. Life becomes exhausting, suffocating and at times, unbearable.

If you are feeling stuck and uncertain how to make changes therapy can help. I work with adults and adolescents to overcome doubt, change unhealthy patterns, improve relationships, and find healthy ways to cope. For some that means approaching the things they avoid, taking down emotional walls, changing their substance use, gaming/internet use, or other unhealthy behaviors. I specialize in anxiety and mood issues, substance use, addictive behaviors, and men's issues. If you want to chat more or learn more about the practice my website provides additional info about my experience and approach. I also offer a free phone consultation.

PHONE AND VIDEO-BASED THERAPY is available during the coronavirus pandemic! In therapy, my priority is you. I will help you discover what is best for you and you specifically. It is imperative to me that you feel welcomed and accepted by me with exactly who you are and where you are in life. As an EMDR therapist, I recognize that humans are complex, multilayered, and are affected in numerous ways. I will work with you to sort out the "messiness" that our emotions can sometimes feel like, so you can learn what you truly need and how to get it.

I believe that because we are born into relationships, we suffer and struggle within the context of our relationships, and we ultimately heal through our relationships—our relationships with ourselves, with each other, and sometimes with people who are no longer present in our lives. I believe in a reflective, wholistic approach to therapy, incorporating elements of a number of treatment models, from behavior-based to psychoanalytic, in order to meet each person's individual needs.
