Therapy should be practical. It should help you feel more capable of handling the daily challenges of life. And, when you are ready, help you dive deeper and untangle the patterns that make you miserable. I work with pre-teens, teens and adults. My strong suit is helping my clients navigate adolescence, "adulting," partnership and parenthood. Interested in supervision for post-graduate interns and practice-building for mental health clinicians? See my website for more info.

My clients are intelligent, sensitive people. Many are parents. They live with anxiety, depression, chronic conditions or trauma. Many are body workers, therapists, teachers or entrepreneurs entering a transition in their personal lives. Their task is to create a thoughtful, sustainable, life-balance - My work is helping achieve it, however they imagine it.

- I am taking new clients for daytime appointments - I aim to return your inquiry within 24 hours. Text or email are most expedient. Please include information related to your most pressing concern and insurance arrangement, if you would like to use it. Be aware that I have very few after-hours appointments available.
