About

I work with teens and adults to untangle and simplify your responses to life, clarify what is most meaningful, and make changes. We gently explore areas such as past or present relationships, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, burnout, trauma, unhealthy alcohol use, grief. As we work I’ll help you hear yourself, teach new skills, and support you to change patterns that are no longer helpful. I am also available to complete psychological evaluations to support immigration legal cases.
We’ll explore the 'how' and the 'why' to tackle problems. I’m collaborative, warm, practical, and curious about what it’s like to be you. We’ll define what is most important to you, explore values, and ways to increase self-compassion and positive energy. I draw on evidence-based therapies appropriate to issues we address and bring humor into sessions.
I hope you’ll contact me for a free 30 minute initial consultation. I’ve seen the power of therapy to make a huge difference in day to day life and long term satisfaction, and I look forward to talking to you and seeing how I can be helpful.
