I specialize in working with young adults, adolescents, and their families in individual, couple, and family therapy. Sometimes we worry that coming to therapy means something is wrong. I believe it means something is right. Often, my clients find themselves facing more decisions and questions about who they are and what they want out of their lives and relationships than ever before. This is an important time in life when many people ask themselves: How can I feel like what I do matters?

We all experience challenging times when we don’t feel like ourselves. We may feel stuck, lost, or experience the same unsatisfying relationships. Engaging in therapy, with the right therapist, can help. Within a supportive and collaborative relationship, I actively work with my clients to better understand themselves and their relationships; to acquire healthy coping strategies; and to achieve an enhanced sense of well-being. I am flexible, tailoring the therapy according to the needs of each client. I bring an integrative approach to psychotherapy that includes insight-oriented work, practical interventions, and cognitive/behavioral techniques, all within a nurturing relationship.

My practice is devoted to providing psychotherapy for older adolescents and adults from diverse walks of life. I treat clients who suffer from anxiety, depression, unresolved trauma, loss, grief, and other sources of seemingly unmanageable distress. I also help clients navigate specific life transitions -- for example, to a new school, job, relationship, or parenthood. Finally, I welcome clients who are experiencing relatively diffuse, general discontent and searching for greater fulfillment with respect to their health, relationships, education, job career, or creative endeavors.

My gentle approach to therapy is rooted in the understanding that our childhood experiences often impact our present conditions and in how we show up in relationships with others and ourselves. No matter how difficult your past, though, I believe that it is not set in stone. I lead with compassion and offer a space where people can begin to explore their internal world, not as something to be afraid of or dismiss, but something to acknowledge and tend to. As a result clients report feeling more comfortable being authentic in relationships and experience a sense of connection to themselves and to the world around them.

By establishing more effective coping skills and responses, positive changes can develop and lead to a greater sense of fulfillment. I approach each individual treatment collaboratively, exploring the foundation of the problem, identifying problematic patterns, and then developing treatment goals tailored to the unique needs of each individual client.

My orientation toward counseling is a strengths based approach, where focusing on resiliency and building upon one's abilities are an essential part of managing conflict and confusion. I believe that the therapeutic process has the ability to empower us to gain insight and create new possibilities, allowing us to work through patterns of thinking and behavior to establish more productive coping mechanisms and strategies for when difficulties occur. Together, we will collaborate on constructing goals to help ease distress and gain clarity related to the challenges you are currently experiencing.

As a Certified IFS therapist and Trainer I believe we all have many parts; some we are aware of, some we're not; some we like, some we don't; some enrich our relationships and some do just the opposite ! At times we can become hijacked by a part - saying things we don't mean, or muting ourselves so we don't say things we do mean. Ruptures in relationships or problems in the workplace can result. Extreme parts lead to extreme behavior. As we listen & get to know our parts, with an open heart, healing can begin and parts soften. My approach is described as thoughtful, warm, engaging, collaborative and, at times, playful.

I believe that our life and cultural experiences, especially our earliest ones, are fundamental in shaping the way we view ourselves and others. It is essential to understand my patient's cultural identity (i.e., race, gender, gender identity, sexuality, class) and how it has shaped their development. Often negative life experiences can create problematic ways of coping and a skewed perception of who we are in the world. This can lead to a variety of issues related to anxiety, depression, shame, rejection, stress, relationship issues, identity development, grief/loss, and sexual intimacy.

People seek therapy when they are unhappy with how they are feeling or functioning. Sometimes you can identify the experiences connected to your suffering. Other times, the reasons for suffering are more elusive, but the associated symptoms (depression, anxiety, unfulfilling relationships, for example) are nevertheless extremely distressing. In both cases, talking to understand the deeper reasons for suffering can help. The self-awareness you discover this way is the most powerful tool to create a more fulfilling life.
