I believe everyone deserves to enjoy a meaningful, fulfilling life, but I know from experience how challenging that can be at times. Let me help you develop coping skills for various issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, career-related issues, teen issues, twentysomething issues, attachment and family issues, and relationship challenges. I use directness with warmth, compassion, support, and laughter to create a judgment-free zone where you can be yourself and take off the "mask." Sure therapy can be tough at times, but also enjoyable and rewarding when you see the progress you are making.

Therapy isn't just about the big light bulb moments of insight - it is also about the small pieces you find about yourself. By developing these small steps of insight, you are able to understand yourself and your relationship to the world, so you can know what you need and how to express it. Maybe you're going through a life transition, need to strengthen coping skills, grieving a loss, or space to express your thoughts and feelings. I am here to non-judgmentally listen and establish a genuine connection with you.

A fundamental human need is to feel emotionally close to others. Difficulty connecting in a platonic or romantic way can leave one feeling sad, anxious, and lonely. Often, we retreat from attempted connection to avoid potential pain. Alternately, because we don't know any different or don't want to feel disconnected, we become involved with others who cause us more interpersonal stress. But isolating or engaging with harmful others can cause us to feel vulnerable, damaged, and upset with ourselves. This pattern often leads us to question if we are capable and deserving of joining and creating mutually beneficial relationships.

You feel like you're barely hanging in there. Like you've lost your way, or maybe even yourself. You just can't seem to get back on solid footing-emotionally OR mentally. You’ve tried your usual tips and tricks to feel better, but they’ve barely moved the needle. Your brain feels like it's not your friend and it's tough to find happiness in the things that usually bring you joy. Your confidence has been knocked down a few pegs. You either feel keyed up with constant worry or knocked flat, laying on the couch or your bed without the energy to do anything. And now you've decided: it's time for a change.

Selecting a therapist is very personal. People often hesitate to share their life with another person, even with a person who has chosen to care and help as their life's work. I am dedicated to helping each client live their lives to the best of their ability by developing a caring relationship in which to work toward mutually determined therapeutic goals. I believe in each person's creative power, while understanding that life can be challenging and overwhelming.

I support individuals and couples with relationship conflict, sexual concerns, and adjustment to life transitions. Clients come to therapy with some common relationship issues: feeling disconnected, noticing the same argument on repeat, discomfort or awkwardness talking about sex, a sexless marriage, mismatched desire, painful intercourse, questions about sexual functioning, and more. With advanced clinical training in relationship and sex therapy, I’ll help you to better understand your needs and goals, build empathy and emotional intimacy, and cultivate more connection, pleasure, and trust in your relationships.

I work alongside clients to help them develop a more balanced, integrated, and grounded sense of self. I believe that through therapy, clients can gain more in-depth awareness of their emotional experience, their thoughts and behaviors, and how one’s past may inform one’s present. This awareness can help create space for self-acceptance and self-compassion, and cultivate personal growth and desired change.

Our internal pressures as well as those imposed on us by society, culture, and family often mold our behaviors. It is rational to want to understand the barriers in our path through life, but we often lose sight of this when faced with difficult experiences. By exploring the rational and emotional together, we are better able to identify these barriers and the ways of thinking that cause them.
