About

Psychotherapy is a collaborative process that is designed to help you understand your difficulties, find relief from distress, and make the changes you wish to make. I strive to create a supportive environment in which you can feel deeply heard and understood. Through an attentive, empathetic, and interactive style, I work to ensure that you feel safe and supported as you explore painful feelings, identify goals and develop new strategies and skills for living more fully. Working together we can find novel ways of addressing the issues that are causing you distress and start you on the path to a more satisfying life.
As an experienced licensed professional counselor with graduate degrees in clinical psychology, counseling and social work and postgraduate training in several psychotherapy approaches, I am able to tailor treatment to each client's individual needs.
I specialize in working with adults who are struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, substance use, relationship issues, attachment injuries and life transitions.
