"I enjoy being a psychotherapist because it provides me the opportunity to help people resolve the issues that are causing them distress. I work with adults, children, and families, and understand that each person is a unique individual with his or her unique life circumstances, history, and social and cultural context. A goal of our work together will be to help you identify and understand the conflicts that may be causing you difficulty, and to help you overcome them. Or perhaps negative thinking patterns cause you to experience sadness, loneliness, hopelessness, fear, or other unwanted emotions."

"I believe each person requires a culturally responsive, warm and personalized approach to healing and optimal functioning. I have helped adults whose lives, while appearing in control, have been impacted by racism/oppression and trauma. They feel down despite successes and may have difficulties maintaining healthy relationships. Psychotherapy examines how we are impacted by patterns that create anxiety, depression, or even recreate historically traumatic experiences. I help identify these patterns and can work with you to achieve health and personal fulfillment. Together, we can work through the pain and create new possibilities for healing and transformation."

""Just trust yourself, then you will know how to live," (Goethe) Yet, trusting yourself depends on knowing yourself - what to do and how to live follows. Frustration, disappointment, anxiety and depression are signals that there is more to know about yourself. Our work will unravel the assumptions and patterns that undermine your capacity to create the love and work life that you desire. For over 30 years I have helped individuals and couples negotiate pivotal life transitions: leaving home, developing a career, finding a mate, parenting, the empty nest and aging."

"I believe that as human beings, we are hard-wired with the need to get our emotional experience into the mind of a trusted other. My work as a psychotherapist is to find emotional resonance with my clients' life experiences, deriving both from their family of origin and from present-day situations and relationships. Whether a client is depressed, anxious, struggling with relationship problems, trying to overcome traumatic experiences, or trying to find their own unique, personal voice in a complex world, talking in psychotherapy can help to expand your capacity for growth and happiness."

"I've witnessed the healing power of the therapeutic relationship to transform feelings of unloveability and shame into feeling lovable and finding satisfying relationship, and to shift overwhelming feelings into freedom and clarity. I work with couples, individuals, families, and children. I welcome everyone who wants to work with me, and especially welcome those who may not have felt comfortable in therapy before, possibly due to existing outside of the norm including: queer and trans* folk, teenagers labeled as having "problem" behaviors, people of size, sex workers, polyamorous arrangements etc."

Maybe you're an adult who was once a neglected or traumatized kid, trying to have close relationships. Or you're a teacher with intense perfectionism, an artist whose self-criticism blocks creative projects, or an athlete plateauing in sport. Maybe you're a therapist struggling to navigate her personal history and clinical work, or a white person wanting to address racism. Coping mechanisms like food, alcohol, exercise, are your "game face," but you wish you could let people know the real you."
