Interpersonal relationships are powerful contributors to our overall health. Our intimate partner relationships, family relationships, work or peer relationships tend to affect us in meaningful ways. When our relational lives are strong and connected we feel satisfied, empowered, hopeful, and more confident. When our relational lives are hurting, we feel anxious, sad, pained, frustrated, and left not knowing what to do to improve it. I work with my clients to address the heart of their stressors working toward tangible results with lasting effects. I work collaboratively & passionately to create a safe, responsive, and supportive environment to address your needs.

I have additional training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT) both of which are approaches proven to assist with anxiety and depression.
Many struggle with anxiety and depression, and this is not uncommon. Whether it be nervousness, sadness, relational difficulties, or feeling like we aren't where we are "supposed to be" in life, there are many obstacles that cause us to feel "stuck." My job as a therapist is to help you get "unstuck" by aiding you in better understanding the underlying factors contributing to these difficulties, many of which are often rooted in thinking habits and relational patterns. My primary focus is on anxiety and depression, and how the combination of unhealthy thinking and unhealthy relational patterns cause us to feel anxious and depressed.

These are challenging times and much that we’ve taken for granted - health, finances, career, life dreams - can suddenly feel elusive and precarious. I dedicate my work to helping you to identify and challenge the obstacles in your way, whether from current turmoil (e.g. trauma, grief, covid) relationship, or from ongoing existential themes about life purpose. Certified in Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) and Interpersonal Therapies (IPT) therapies, I draw from traditional psychodynamic theory (i.e. attachment and early family dynamics) and incorporate mindfulness, when appropriate, to guide you toward your desired change.

I believe that we all need someone to talk with who really listen and accept us as we are, without judgement. I provide my clients with that warm, nonjudgmental environment—a safe place to explore the issues that may be preventing you from living the life you want. I have had the opportunity to work with clients from all parts of the world, from different cultures and with diverse ideas about parenting, marriage, love, sexuality, gender identity and spirituality. I pride myself on being straightforward and honest and aspire to help connect individuals with their preferred self.

Are you living a life you love, or are you stuck in the familiar “one step forward, two steps back” dance? Life can be colorfully painful, beautifully complicated, and completely overwhelming—and none of us were given a how-to guide. We all experience complicated twists and unexpected turns that cause sadness, worry, anger, and destructive patterns with food, drugs, alcohol, and within our closest relationships. Our lives are too short to lose precious time to unhappiness, feeling hopeless, and being stuck in the same vicious cycles. Therapy can give you a personalized roadmap to help you design a life you love.

We all have moments in life when we could use help processing our feelings and emotional pain. We have times when we feel alone and believe that no one else could possibly understand what we’re going through. Talking with a therapist, someone who’s objective, who will work with you in a way that is meaningful and relevant to you, can be beneficial during these times. I believe good therapy can offer a space where you feel valued, heard, gain insight, learn skills and self-acceptance. Using a collaborative and integrative approach, we can work through negative thoughts, painful emotions, and unresolved problems. I’m here to help.
