About

I believe psychotherapy is about self-discovery, change and empowerment. If you feel stressed or unhappy, psychotherapy can help. My goal is to create an emotionally safe place, so that together, we can find the right answers. I appreciate that life can be complicated and that solutions are unique to the person. I am warm and nonjudgmental and my approach is client-centered and collaborative. My clients see me as knowledgeable and supportive. I listen carefully with an open mind. I would feel privileged to be part of your journey of growth and healing.
I use cognitive-behavioral (CBT), psychodynamic, mindfulness, positive psychology and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). I am strengths-focused. My specialties include depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, major life transitions, feeling stuck, stress management, parenting issues, family conflict, struggles with substances, work-life balance.
My life experiences have enriched my understanding of the complexities of life and families. I have worked in substance abuse, inpatient psychiatry and primary care. My previous career in business has provided me with first-hand insight into career-related stress and the challenges of work/family balance. I also have interest in supporting people who stutter
