Are you ready to start feeling better, learn healthier coping strategies, and create positive changes in your life? I help individuals sixteen and older who have anxiety, depression, body/eating issues, relationship struggles, career/work challlenges, unresolved trauma, and emotional issues in general. My personal experience of going through therapy at a difficult time in my life is what made me want to be a therapist. Life gets difficult for everyone at times and reaching out for help is a sign of strength and readiness to deal with the problems that interfere with living a better and more meaningful life. I’m here to help.

By using an individualized and multi-pronged approach I help my clients develop effective ways to improve their overall well-being and address specific concerns. I use Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), DBT (dialectical behavioral therapy), and ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy) to effectively treat a wide range of issues.

In addition to being a psychotherapist in private practice for over 15 years, I’ve started helping people with very specific anxieties and phobias such as social anxiety, test anxiety, and public speaking anxiety. I also provide LCSW Exam Prep tutoring. I enjoy helping people improve the quality of their lives and welcome the opportunity to help you!
