"I seek to help clients better manage stress, anxiety and depression; to support them through life transitions; to improve communication patterns, strengthen relationships, and process past trauma. A skilled mediator, I help couples improve communication, rebuild trust, remove barriers to intimacy and work through struggles due to infertility. I believe that therapy is meant to be a creative, collaborative process in which individuals and couples have the opportunity to find new ways of understanding their unique narratives. I work with clients to develop an individualized, goal-oriented approach to reaching their full potential."

"I am a licensed clinical psychologist with extensive experience working with anxiety, depression and addiction, both with individuals and with couples. My training is psychodynamic in nature, although I work regularly within a CBT model to reduce and eliminate anxiety symptoms more effectively. I believe in reducing symptoms initially to clear the way for treatment of the underlying issues. I strongly believe in a good match between therapist and patient and, therefore, offer a free consultation so we can both determine whether we can work well and effectively together. My style is warm, non-judgmental and thought-provoking. My approach is direct and interpersonal."

"People often come to therapy feeling that they need to fix or change some troubling aspect of themselves. What can be surprising, however, is that the therapeutic process often begins as a journey of self-acceptance rather than fixing or changing. Most of us have not been fortunate enough to have people in our lives who can listen without judgement or agenda. That is my job as your therapist. By truly listening, I will learn what the world looks like through your eyes and this intimate understanding of your inner world will help me guide you through the challenging journey of self-acceptance as the gateway to personal transfor"

Maybe it's something that feels unsatisfying or limiting. You may or may not know what you want for yourself, and what keeps you from getting it. Through our work together, we will begin to discover what isn't working for you and why.

"I work with individuals and couples whose lives have been interrupted by depression, anxiety, mourning, and trauma. Psychotherapy, like pastoral care and psychoanlysis, is "soul work" - self expression in the presence of a trusted friend and guide. In this safe space of the therapeutic relationship, thoughts and feelings, dreams and fantasies, desires and fears are given voice -- loud and clear, and without judgment. Authentic verbal and emotional expression is transformative. As dysfunctional patterns of thought and behavior become clear, as shattered parts of the self are recognized and linked, a new wholeness is achieved which offers the courage to change and the joy of freedom."
