I specialize in helping adults who are challenged by acute and chronic medical illness especially heme/onc diseases and functional GI disorders. My practice focuses on anxiety, depression, medical trauma, loss, grief, work/life balance and life transitions. I also work with those who support individuals struggling with the above concerns. With over 2 decades of clinical experience, our work together will be tailored towards your unique needs. My approach is interactive, compassionate, flexible is consistently supportive. You can expect to leave our sessions equipped with actionable tools that are goal directed.
The key to achieving positive change begins with finding a therapist who is a good fit for YOU. Our work will involve identifying and building upon existing strengths while exploring ways to modify and/or changing behaviors that are not fully supporting your goals. Together we will collaborate and uncover what’s limiting your quality of life.
It takes courage to start and/or resume therapy. If this seems like the right time to take that next step, I invite you to begin by having a conversation with me. You will leave our sessions feeling heard and respected. Expect to also acquire evidence based strategies and coping tools that can be used immediately to support your individual goals.
