I work with clients who are distressed or confused by why they engage in the behaviors they do, whether it's addiction, anger, illegal or anti-social behavior, or relationship difficulties and challenges. I believe this is because my stance is non-judgmental and I genuinely believe that all behavior is rational given past experience, even if it is not helpful or healthy in the present. I work to help clients navigate how these behaviors may have arisen, to develop self-compassion, and then to provide support and strategies to do the hard work of adopting new, more helpful behaviors.

I work with clients experiencing a broad range of challenges, including relationship difficulties, life transitions and adjustments, addiction, personality disorders, trauma, abuse, procrastination, decision-making, anxiety, depression, family-of-origin challenges, and grief and loss.

I have experience with legally-mandated clients and am willing to provide related documentation for clients who may be court-involved.
