I employ a variety of different modalities in my work, but primarily draw from psychodynamic, attachment-based , and mindfulness approaches to nurture your innate self-insight and capacity to enact positive change in your life.
We all have an elemental instinct to feel balance and contentment within ourselves. However, emotional distress borne of life stressors, trauma, and inner conflict often compromises our ability to access joy and live in harmony with our values. I work to create a relationship grounded in warmth and non-judgment that supports your sense of safety and experience of feeling heard. Together, we identify areas of focus and explore what carries the capacity to help you reconnect with yourself and your life in meaningful ways.

I have received intensive training in Emotionally Focused Theory (EFT), an attachment-based model, which frames my work with both couples and individuals.
The key to our well-being is defining and developing a healthy relationship with ourselves and others. For over 20 years, I have worked with individuals and couples to establish therapeutic relationships based on safety, trust, and acceptance. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I’ve worked with a range of issues including anxiety, depression, loneliness, loss, relationship distress, and difficult life transitions. While formally trained in psychodynamic theory, my approach is flexible recognizing the unique needs and strengths of each individual.

I believe that relationships are pillars of emotional wellness. For a variety of reasons, we may rely on coping strategies, both as children and adults, that negatively impact the important relationships around us. I provide a safe and reflective environment which brings awareness to these maladaptive patterns, improving upon the quality of our relationships.

One of the pillars of a fulfilling life is the ability to be our authentic selves. Sometimes obstacles, hardships, and missteps cause us to forgo authenticity to survive. As a result, we may feel stuck, lost, or alone in our struggles. As a therapist, I see myself as a partner to my clients in their journey toward healing and growth. My approach is holistic - I consider the whole person and their context in everything I do, and I work collaboratively to ensure that each session feels personalized and effective. I provide a safe space to process where you are and begin to make progress toward where you'd like to be.

To "know thyself" - to wake up to yourself, is the most worthy of quests. I work with mind, body, and spirit to bring you back to yourself. The body never lies. When we tune into the body we find our own truth, wisdom, and guidance. This happens when we calm down, relax, and pay attention. There are often emotions or experiences that have waited years to be acknowledged and expressed. It doesn't work to close the door on the past. Until we review, process, and open to healing we tend to re-capitulate the events in our past.

There are times in our lives when we face problems that can overburden us with distress and discontent. These can include struggles with troubling moods and emotions such as depression, anxiety, anger and self-doubt; challenges navigating our roles and relationships as parents, partners and professionals; and difficulties adjusting to life-altering events such as a death, a divorce, or a major transition. I specialize in family-focused counseling aimed at helping children, adolescents, adults, and couples to address these concerns in ways that lead them to cope more skillfully, connect more positively, and live more hopefully.

I know finding a therapist can be quite difficult, so I'd like to tell you a little about the way I like to work to see if it might be a good fit for you. I like to customize what we might work on for you as part of an ongoing dialogue about how you are doing and what you need. For some people at some times having a supportive space can be quite helpful. We can also work on the structured steps of CBT and DBT.

We all have a natural resilience to heal from trauma, loss, and unexpected setbacks, however stories created about who we are can get in the way. They tell us we are not good enough, that we will fail, that we are not safe. They disconnect us from others, the world around us, and the goals we seek, they wreak havoc in our bodies. Together, we will partner to make sense of and transform these stories, allowing for growth and connection. I believe that even our adversities can be a source of strength and an opportunity to better ourselves.

I believe the therapeutic relationship is the crucible within which clients are helped to heal their pain. I take an active role in the therapeutic process by engaging with the client so he or she feels understood, respected, and seen. The feelings of shame, fear, anxiety and other painful emotions are worked through so the client feels taken care of. The clients I treat often come into therapy in a survival mode. I help people in moving from survival to a life of thriving and self love. Dysfunctional behaviors creates people who feel inauthentic, even to themselves. I assist people in developing true authenticity and a real self.
