I am trained as a clinical psychologist and have continued to update my understanding of current knowledge in the field. I have studied what factors help therapists provide the best possible help to clients. I provide a safe emotional environment to listen to you. I have been told I am a good listener my whole life. Many people say they feel calmer just talking to me.

It takes courage to start working with a new therapist. The very fact that you’re considering it probably means you’re getting ready to make some significant changes in your life. My approach to therapy focuses on understanding and accepting you as you are right now, and creating a safe space where you can figure out where you want to go from here. We’ll work together as you get ready to make the sometimes tough (and rewarding) changes that will give you a better life. We will also deal with any stresses you're experiencing due to the coronavirus, including the isolation of sheltering in place and uncertainties about the future.

My job is to help people gain a better sense of clarity and control over the stress and anxiety that comes with their life’s various challenges, including anxiety management; mood and psychiatric disturbances; relational problems; resolution of trauma; difficult life transitions; anxiety and dysphoria related to gender roles and identification; and addiction struggles.

Therapy is a process of healing, growth, and change. Changing patterns that aren't working and creating positive change, while feeling more happiness in your relationships, work, family, life, and self. Counseling provides an opportunity to discuss struggles, decrease stress, increase understanding of self and others, find solutions, and create positive change. I incorporate constructive insights, guidance, and empathy, along with analytical feedback when appropriate. Part of our work together includes uncovering behavior patterns, thinking patterns, and maladaptive beliefs, so that you can identify and work through the challenges you are experiencing.

You may think that big things have to change in your life in order for you to feel better and experience improvement. But I've come to believe that a key, gentle shift in perspective can bring about more positive change than many realize. That is a shift from taking a critical approach with yourself to taking a Kinder Approach. With this shift in how you approach yourself and your experiences comes greater self-awareness and feelings of confidence, hopefulness, empowerment and knowing your value. You can begin to see and feel new possibilities and choices for your life.
