If you are struggling with feelings of self-worth, identity formation and feeling understood, then it makes sense why it can be hard to ask for help. Reaching out is a scary step, and you have already made a brave move by being here. So, take a moment to celebrate yourself, maybe take a deep breath, and recognize the strength it took to show up. You deserve a space to process emotional challenges and connect with a happy and empowered version of yourself.

On the outside things are fine, but on the inside you feel overwhelmed and disconnected. Being a perfectionist has helped you in a lot of areas...you've experienced successes, but you desire more meaning and peace in your life. I will serve as a compassionate guide, helping you feel understood and guided in this process. I will help you discover practical strategies as well as the deeper "whys" to your feelings and thoughts, including the self-criticism. While not all clients choose to incorporate spirituality, for those who do, I can also incorporate faith-based perspectives in alignment with clients' values, stage and needs.

I am currently accepting only clients who need short-term, crisis support as my practice is full. I support people under pressure, whether the source is professional, medical, or relational. I spent a decade supporting families and professionals managing high risk pregnancy and reproductive mood complications by staffing all units and clinics affiliated with a women 's hospital. I have accompanied thousands of people managing high stakes medical decisions, illness or demise, caregiver fatigue in patients or professionals, infertility, and marital conflict.

We aren’t meant to go through life alone. We need people around us to celebrate the highs, talk us through the lows, and above all else, we need people to listen and hear us. I truly believe that no problem is too small for therapy and that no one should have to navigate the tough parts of life on their own: I want to hear your story, and I’m here to support you through your journey. Therapy is a collaborative effort that requires us to work together to create goals that will best benefit you, while being mindful of where you’re in that moment.

Therapy can be a space to make sense of the past, make goals for the future, or problem-solve challenges as they arise. I use a strengths-based, solution-focused approach to help clients identify their needs and explore their potential. I believe as we turn our focus inward and ground ourselves, we find empowerment and clarity. The cornerstone of my practice is empathy for my clients, and I feel that change happens when there is a strong and supportive therapeutic relationship.

I am a firm believer that making the decision to address your issues takes a great deal of courage and bravery. Many of us come from circumstances or environments that encourage us to push through pain by burying it, outworking it, or avoiding it. While these coping skills help us to survive, they don't necessarily encourage us to thrive. As a therapist with psychodynamic training and extensive life coaching experience, it is important to me that our sessions focus on identifying where core issues are coming from, encourage collaborative problem solving, as well as create space for intentional goal setting.

There are few places where we can be fully understood and make sense of our lives. Life can take us in directions we did not anticipate and we may need a reflective and accepting environment to reconnect to our true selves. Whether there are small stressors or lifetime traumas, therapy is an environment that is dedicated to feeling and coping better.

You deserve pleasure, regardless of what you’ve experienced. I can help you develop confidence in communicating your desires, feelings, and boundaries. You’ll learn to not just survive but thrive after trauma. We’ll work on addressing anxiety and avoidance. Sex therapy can help if you want to work on something and your partner doesn’t. In sex therapy, all partners are welcome. You also can attend regular individual therapy if you want to work on sexual shame, trying to date, or exploring gender or sexuality. Together, we’ll explore your mental health challenges – I will join you in this experience as you navigate troubled waters.

When we develop a deeper understanding of the way we see and are seen by the world, we can learn what our souls need and leave behind what no longer serves us. Navigating current patterns and challenges can be an uncomfortable yet powerful process in manifesting the self-betterment we all deserve. By exploring the underlying factors that impact who we are, we can lean into the empowerment of self-discovery, reclaim a sense of autonomy within ourselves and our relationships, and learn how to give ourselves grace along the way.
