I have 20 years of experience as a clinical social worker and prior to that was a home-based family counselor. I view my role as helping the person clarify troubling life experiences, past and present, and to understand their responses to those experiences. These may include: difficult relationships and families, unresolvable ambiguity; agonies of adolescence; substance and alcohol abuse, or legacies of trauma and existential dilemmas. I believe each person contains the seeds of their own solution and I work to nurture that individual solution. This happens in a relationship where it becomes safe to "say anything."

Are you or a family member struggling with an addiction , loss, stressful job or other personal concern? As an active and engaging therapist, I have observed that when the chemistry between therapist and client works, the process of therapy can provide a multitude of results: curbing self-destructive patterns of behavior, providing relief from painful emotions, increasing productivity at work, increasing behavioral control and achieving greater meaning in one's life. I believe that these meaningful changes occur when there is a joint process of discovery in which the therapist attends to the expressed needs and goals of the client.

I am very passionate about my work helping individuals, couples, and families struggling with or alongside personality disorders, addiction , and sexual dysfunction and sexuality issues to prevent these from continuing to wreak havoc and add more stress in their lives.
Sometimes it can be really hard to connect to people. Sometimes it feels like nobody cares or can "relate". Sometimes this means it's time to try something different with somebody different - let's see if I can be that somebody different for you. Therapy can be a challenge because it requires a lot of trust in someone that you just met, which is why it can be so important for me to make my clients feel as understood and heard as possible. When life starts to feel unbearable or when it seems like everyone is against you, sometimes that's when it might be time to try something different and reach out for help.

My experience with issues such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse, trauma, and parenting allow me to help you identify obstacles to change and move forward in improving your overall mental health.
It can feel overwhelming to be proactive about making positive changes in our lives. Everyone has their own complicated life circumstances related to family, work, relationships, and mental and spiritual well being. Therapy can be an essential tool to work to un-complicate these circumstances and focus on making happiness and wellness a daily priority. When we feel overwhelmed with worry or that it's impossible to accomplish daily tasks we feel powerless. I have been in this field for over 10 years and can provide a supportive and empathic environment in which we can work together on specific goals and changes for your life.

My practice is comprised of individuals and families grappling with a range of issues from addiction to high conflict divorce and college transition difficulties. Many of my clients are navigating with the strain of divorce and are seeking to learn skills to co-parent young children despite high conflict with their ex-spouse. Others are parents devastated by the ravages of addiction on their child and, ultimately, their family. These clients are motivated, competent and capable, but are experiencing discomfort in their lives that requires empathic support and guidance.

I specialize in Childhood Trauma Healing, Addiction and Recovery, Life Transitions, Anxiety and Depression, and relational issues.
If you are struggling, I would like to help. Over the years, I have become particularly interested in the process of healing childhood trauma. I provide a safe and supportive environment to explore past hurts, grieve unmet needs and find strength to move forward in life. I strongly believe that the therapeutic relationship is a "container" in which healing can occur. In light of the pandemic and the "new normal" of remaining at home, I offer teletherapy support around keeping one's self as calm as possible, so we can keep our immune systems functioning properly.
