In today’s world, it is understandable that stress and anxiety levels are higher than ever before. I specialize in treating adults with stress, anxiety, perfectionism, sadness, self-doubt, and relationship issues, and I particularly enjoy working with college students, young working professionals, and parents who feel overwhelmed, isolated, and burnt out. I work collaboratively with clients to accomplish their goals as they adjust to life and role transitions, explore aspects of their personal identity, and build confidence in their ability to cope with stressors and uncomfortable emotions as they arise.

I work with adults and adolescents in a safe, person-centered environment, to successfully navigate issues that diminish life satisfaction.
Today’s world is defined by opportunities and challenges that didn’t exist for our parents. The changing ways in which we approach identity, relationships, work, leisure, and education – the core of emotional and psychological fulfillment – can be as bewildering as they are exciting. Becoming the truest and best version of ourselves can be an elusive task in this ever-shifting and often judgemental, invalidating landscape. It’s no wonder all of us need help in one way or another.

I work with adults , college age students, and their families.
Accepting new clients, for virtual appointments only. Sometimes the roads we chose to traverse become less easy to navigate as situations change, circumstances reach beyond our control, or life simply needs some readjusting to get back on track. I strive to provide individual clients and couples with a vehicle to discover the answers that they seek about themselves and their relationships. I help clients learn the tools they need to navigate the road on their own, and find the healing that they desire.

I recognize and have a deep respect for the positive impact counseling can have on one's life. Having an impartial third party provide support and help one cope with any number of life's challenges can be invaluable. I believe the best therapists listen without judging and never dismiss or minimize rational or irrational fears as issues that adults "shouldn't" worry about. I practice an eclectic mix of theoretical approaches to empathically help individuals develop personal strengths and improve their self-awareness. My approach to therapy is collaborative, supportive, practical, and focuses on personal effectiveness.

I especially love to work with adults with mood, relationship, disability/medical, identity, and life transition concerns.
Life can be hard – it brings us times of feeling alone, scared, sad, ashamed, and uncertain. This can hurt our self, our loved ones, and our ability to lead a fulfilling life. Therapy can provide us with more choices and more control when life becomes hard. As a counseling psychologist, I am deeply committed to providing an affirming and compassionate therapy space where you can explore who you are, where your life is, and take steps towards the life you would like to lead.
