About

Do you feel empty inside, unfulfilled in your relationships and long for a greater sense of meaning and purpose? Many of us lose touch with ourselves as we take on different life roles, try to conform to what we believe we "should" be or are faced with major stressors. It is this inner disconnection that can lead to symptoms like anxiety and depression. I specialize in helping adults, college students and adolescents struggling with issues around sense of self and identity. I also support parents and teens stay connected during the trials of adolescence, and help parents better understand and care for their special needs child.
As a therapist, I provide a safe space for you to begin to know yourself on a deeper level. With warmth and curiosity, I will guide you to listen in new ways to your thoughts and feelings, and to increase awareness of the behaviors that may be keeping you from your goals. Together we will practice different ways of responding to yourself and others.
Using research-based methodologies, I offer you specific tools and methods for staying present, connected and centered despite the ups and downs that life brings. I approach my work with humility and have a gentle and open style. I am active and responsive throughout our sessions but always strive to uphold a space of calm and acceptance.
