The most significant predictor of a successful therapy experience is the quality of the relationship between therapist and client. Building a safe, nurturing relationship is where I excel. My style is warm and highly interactive, best suited for clients who prefer a therapist who feels very human, less like the old "medical model." I assist clients to explore their thought patterns and corresponding emotional reactions, and to identify unconscious assumptions they hold about themselves, which inform their behavioral patterns. I also provide practical tools for regulating anxiety, managing depression, and processing grief & loss.

As a long-time activist for social justice, I have an abiding awareness of how our personal well-being is impacted by the socio-political realities of the world we inhabit. I believe that contextualizing individual experience within the framework of larger power structures is essential to making sense of our challenges, and navigating our futures.

***Please note: I am currently working primarily remotely, conducting the majority of my sessions by a HIPAA compliant, secure video platform. This means that I am only accepting new clients that are comfortable working in this format.***
