My areas of expertise include working with individual adult men and women , couples, families, parenting issues, & also recovery from life changing chronic/traumatic illness (brain injury, organ transplant, MS, chronic fatigue).
A safe, empathic therapeutic space for clients to make meaningful changes in their lives," "I help clients make meaningful and necessary changes for overall increased life satisfaction. I do this by providing a safe, non threatening and supportive setting for clients to "do their work" and create a therapeutic space where humor is allowed. If appropriate, a client's sense of their own spirituality is acknowledged and integrated as a resource of empowerment, to sort through feelings, thoughts and behaviors that either help or hinder them in achieving identified goals.

As a woman of color, working parent, spouse, and adoptee, I strive to create a supportive, inclusive environment for clients with multiple intersecting identities.
Therapy should be a life-affirming experience, a place where you can share your struggles and hopes with someone who makes you feel heard, valued, and supported. I provide individual psychotherapy to adults living with anxiety, depression, psychosis-spectrum disorders, and those going through major life transitions. I especially love helping new parents with the difficulties and stress that can accompany the pregnancy and postpartum periods. As a former tenure-track professor, I also enjoy working with people experiencing similar high-stress work environments.

This includes working with women around issues that arise related to motherhood and supporting new parents in addressing: parenting challenges, issues left from one’s own upbringing, sorting out role issues with one's partner and clarifying life balance decisions.
In working together I will encourage you to find your own "clear voice" by connecting with your values, sorting out conflicts, and developing new skills. Most importantly, our work involves connecting to your own inner strength. My clients describe me as an astute listener who provides them with a warm and grounded place in which to expand understanding and to learn new and practical approaches. Therapeutic work we do together will often result in your improved ability to "unstick" stuck relationships, get unblocked and communicate more effectively, as well as making meaningful decisions that fit for you.

My interest is helping women and men have healthier relationships by raising awareness about psychological abuse.
From over 30 years of experience, I bring a warm and interactive approach to helping you address emotional issue/s that interfere with living the life you'd like to live. These emotional issues could be depression, trauma, anxiety, divorce, grief, abuse, low-self esteem, etc. I draw from a host of treatment models that I believe will best suit your needs including Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP). One model is EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) that's particular helpful in facilitating resolution of issues in a shorter amount of time.

I am accepting new clients for virtual visits. Clients reach out to me because they want something to change. It could be that you want to worry less, feel happier or more fulfilled in your relationships, increase motivation, reduce harsh self-criticism, or need some support with stressful transitions or losses. Maybe you are recognizing your current ways of coping with challenges aren't working as well as you'd like, and you want to explore new ones. If you feel like you are in a rut or can't seem to get out of your own way, therapy can help you figure it out and get to where you want to be.

As a mindfulness-based practitioner specializing in the treatment of depression, anxiety, family-related stress and couples' conflict, my goal is to offer the quality of service that I would seek as a client. I use counseling practices that are based in research. However, I also move flexibly between approaches depending upon the unique needs of my clients. Your goals are the most important element of change, and I see counseling as an active and collaborative relationship in this process. I offer a warm, relaxed and open environment but am also engaged, interactive and conversational in style.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online or over the phone can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the United States, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist, psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
