I believe beginning therapy takes courage, and I have the utmost respect for anyone taking that risk. I strive to create a warm space of total acceptance for where you are in your journey. For as long as I can remember, I've been interested in people's stories. It's not surprising that I ended up doing the work I do. As a therapist, I listen to a person and help make sense of both the struggles and the strengths. I help my clients to find meaning in their experience and to move forward to create new stories.
I believe therapy is a balance of support and challenge. I bring warmth, humor, and an active style to sessions. I draw from a variety of therapeutic modalities, and our work together will look different from another person's as we collaborate to create a more fulfilled life for you.
I work with adults dealing with anxiety, depression, body image and self esteem, disordered eating, and relationship issues. Also, having worked in the corporate world for over 10 years, I offer support to professionals struggling with problems such as finding meaning in work, professional setbacks, stress and work-life balance.
