With an eclectic approach to Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, I work with individuals and couples in the context of several areas including: anxiety, depression, relationship issues, work-related challenges, self-esteem, transitions, neurocognitive difficulties and grief. We all have periods of growth and change that can leave us feeling eager to explore aspects of ourselves or our experiences that may inadvertently be getting in the way of living.

*NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME* In my previous position at McLean, I worked with adolescents/families struggling with mood disorders, anxiety disorders, personality disorders and related family and relationship issues such as adoption, interpersonal conflict, etc, in addition to work with adults with substance abuse disorders. I also enjoy working with couples and families struggling with problems such as difficulty communicating and problems with intimacy. I love my job and hope that my work with clients continues to benefit the community as much as it does my own development.

Through my own lived experience, I can deeply resonate with the realities my Millennial and Gen Z clients face. Dating, social media, politics, finances, and demands from school or work can be so daunting. My main priority as a therapist is to create a non-judgmental, engaging, and approachable environment where you feel empowered to navigate these challenges together. Just having one of those days where you need to vent about your mom, partner , or roommate? There’s plenty of space for that too.

I am passionate about helping you navigate your most difficult relationship issues, whether that be with a co-worker, or your partner of 15 years.
*Practice Currently Full* Life can feel really overwhelming at times, especially when you are trying to manage the daily grind, while also being present in your personal and professional relationships. When you have a busy and demanding life your personal relationships often take a back burner and it’s hard to deal with problems effectively in the moment. Sometimes it’s easier to numb out with unhealthy habits like over drinking, over or undereating, scrolling social media, or overworking. But, eventually these habits leave you feeling more stressed and disconnected, and problems that once appeared small snowball into larger issues.

I work with men and women, gay and heterosexual, individually and in couples .
To make the decision to enter therapy, whatever your reasons, requires courage and persistence. Maybe you are feeling stuck in your current circumstances or frustrating behavior patterns. Or maybe you struggle with anxiety or depression, or wrestle with the pain of some kind of trauma or abuse. I believe we all are meant to grow and develop; and that some life events or relationships can throw up roadblocks to that natural process of growth. I believe that the combination of insight and hard work with a compassionate and experienced therapist can be very healing and yes, life changing.

My clients range from young adults to people in middle age. Most of my clients seek therapy when they become overwhelmed by a personal life challenge. Many aspects of their lives may be going smoothly, but they struggle in other areas: could be the academic rigors of college, a complicated relationship with a romantic partner , how to handle work stress or parenting issues. Whatever the reason, my clients hope for a therapist who creates a safe space for them to talk openly about their struggle, someone to help them gain new perspective and to partner with them to help alleviate the emotional pain caused by their difficulty.

Through a collaborative approach, I assist individuals, couples , and families in working through life’s obstacles.
At times you may find yourself feeling stuck in a repetitive loop, with outcomes that feel undesirable or out of your control. As humans, we are wired to repeat deeply learned patterns that, at a certain point, no longer serve us. Whether it’s in your work life, personal relationships, or your relationship to yourself, you may find yourself asking: “Why does this keep happening? How can I move past this?”

I work with adults, adolescents, couples , and families who are experiencing various challenges, which can include depression, anxiety, trauma, isolation, grief and loss, and substance use.
Although each of us is unique, oftentimes we go into therapy because we feel discouraged and stuck. In therapy, I believe it is important for us to be encouraged, heard, understood, and potentially, respectfully challenged. It can also be important to gain insights into our unique coping strategies. We can use such insights to consider alternative strategies to help overcome our challenges and achieve what we want in life.

I offer relationship and sex therapy, as well as LGBTQIA+, non-monogamy, and kink allied teletherapy for individuals and couples .
Life presents to us a consistent ebb and flow of challenges. As we navigate these, we are guided by our sense of identity, our past experiences, and the patterns we have learned. Often, however, these solutions do not serve us in the present and take the form of habits of mind and action which hold us back, shape our relationships, and create the illusion of false limitations; but there is hope. We are able to shape our lives through changing our patterns, the way we think and communicate, and the actions we learn to take. Through self understanding we may update our narrative and with it transform our realities.

As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor I specialize in working with individuals and couples that have been impacted by trauma. I believe we are shaped by our experiences and that each client is unique. There is not a “one size fits all” approach to trauma treatment, which is why I utilize an eclectic approach that focuses on each client’s needs. I use an individualized approach that includes Internal Family Systems (IFS), narrative therapy, and attachment theory to inform treatment. I also offer individual case consults and work with organizations as a consultant and trainer to improve understanding around trauma response.

While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches.
