Stressed? Having relationship problems? Finding yourself stuck in a repetitive pattern? Curious about why this happens? Together, we will gain a deeper understanding of your struggle, resolve challenges, and develop new ways to live a more meaningful, connected, and successful life. My years of advanced training and experience ground me as a therapist. I work with adolescents, young adults, adults, and couples experiencing severe to mild anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, and major life transitions.

I see people in both brief / time-limited and ongoing therapy, once a week. I also provide intensive therapy, 2-3 sessions per week, for individuals who are in crisis or who are highly motivated for change.

You're welcome to learn more about me from my website. I also offer a free 15 minute initial phone conversation. You can reach me by phone or e-mail and I look forward to working together.
