I work with adults in their 20s-70s who is overwhelmed with chronic stress, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, grief / loss and/or life disrupting childhood trauma/post-traumatic stress. I also work with individuals and couples who want to resolve problems within their relationships, life transitions, divorce, including cultural identity issues. I work well with men who are in midlife (30s-70s) struggling with anxiety, aging and/or depression. I also work with women who are going through many life changes and identity conflicts. These clients often feel lost, stuck and alone. Their anxiety, negativity and low mood is out of control.

I sincerely trust in an individual’s ability to heal, even from profound pain and trauma, and have dedicated my professional life to guiding patients through some of the most challenging times of their lives. My practice focuses on intimacy and reproductive well-being, as well as a wide range of psychological concerns, including: anxiety, recovery following illness or medical trauma, relationship concerns, and grief . I also make it a sincere priority to provide a welcoming space for the LGBTQIA community. My website presents a great deal of information about sexual therapy, simply because it is often omitted from healing, sadly.

Starting individual counseling or couples counseling can be intimidating. I know it’s uncomfortable to open yourself up to someone and really take a look at the painful stories you carry around. Finding yourself can be a daunting task. What’s more uncomfortable is carrying around pain and other stressors. I am well versed in combating these powerful narratives and I am not afraid of authenticity. I believe that most stories are laced with grief such as divorce, loss or just simply losing yourself. Having experienced layers of grief in my own life, I am ready and willing to join you as you explore by doing the work in therapy.

My clients generally reach out for help when struggling with an adjustment, a loss , or a relationship that has problems. I most often see women, during pregnancy or postpartum, or at other times of crisis or difficulty during their lives. The relationship that I form with my clients is the most important aspect of the therapy, as it is the trust and emotional safety that is the foundation for the work we will do. It is within that therapeutic relationship that a deeper understanding of oneself and change can occur.

I specialize in treating stress/burnout, grief , anxiety, and depression, although I also enjoy working with relationship and blended family issues.
Most of my patients describe sessions with me as "effective." Yes, I'll sit and listen, empathize, and you'll know I genuinely care about you and your life. But you'll also probably hear things from me that others may not be willing to tell you. Why? Because I want to see you live the life you are capable of and unlocking many of those interactions helps with that process! I generally use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy along with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. They are both great types of therapy that focus on behavioral strategies for change after examination of your thinking.

I work with a variety of children and individuals presenting with Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Grief and Loss , Infertility/Women’s health, & Perfectionism.
“Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we’re supposed to be and embracing who we are." Sometimes we lose ourselves along the way for whatever reason, be it trauma, loss , depression, anxiety or any number of human experiences. And guess what? It’s okay! You are not alone! When we are disconnected with ourselves, our thoughts lead us to believe we are not good enough or worthy of connection. But you are. It is so brave to want to grow, heal, and rediscover yourself. True healing comes from connection with others and authenticity to the self. I am here to meet you where you are!

Grief Therapists
Grief and Bereavement is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.
