You are much more more than a diagnosis or category! It is a challenge for us all to make meaning in a chaotic world. I work with creative people, perfectionists, harsh self-critics and existential struggles in singles, couples & groups. I have expertise in helping people recognize problematic substance use, with Harm Reduction as a philosophical approach. Cross-cultural sensitivity is a great value. I enjoy working with young and early-career adults. I enjoy learning from the people I see.

You are worried about your teenager. They look sad and anxious, closed in their room. You are afraid to ask, you want to give them space but you are worried that something is not right. They hardly talk and seem to be interested in very little. They used to socialize and be active but since the pandemic everything seems to have come to a standstill. When they were little it was easier, you knew what to say, how to engage with them and calm them down. But now it seems that anything you do is wrong. The tension in the house is high and all you want is for things to be like they used to,

My ideal clients are women who want to be active in their own recovery process, even if they are right now in a "stuck place". They may be struggling with depression and/or anxiety and often both; transitions including new motherhood and chronic stress are common. They are motivated for change, have a sense of humor, and are open to trying new ideas and new ways of working with their struggles. This may mean seeing the entire self as the mindbody-one affecting the other in continuum, as opposed to having a mind, and then having a body as two separate things. Personal growth and development are important goals for the clients I see.

I know why you're here. I see you...wondering how you can feel so successful in some parts of your life and so stuck in others, knowing your greatest fear is that you won’t live up to your potential. And yet you keep retreating, shrinking yourself, sabotaging your own success. Deep down you might be thinking you’ve been settling and selling yourself short, and you know it's old "stuff" holding you back, but you’re not really sure how to change that on your own. It’s time for a fresh approach. Are you ready to feel like your life on the outside matches who you are on the inside? If so, why wait? Your destiny is calling.

My goal is to help motivated adults to identify what they want out of life, figure out what's getting in their way, and overcome those obstacles to achieve the lives they want. I place high value on autonomy and seek to help clients increase their own sense of agency- the feeling that they have the power to make their own decisions and the resources to act on those decisions. My background and perspective can be particularly useful when working with clients who are highly intelligent, who are oriented towards engineering, science, technology, or who think of themselves as introverted, shy, and/or socially awkward.

He was your friend. He was someone you trusted – or at least someone you thought you could trust. But now you know better; you just can't trust men (or most women for that matter). The things he did to you were so embarrassing and painful, it's hard to begin to describe it. And who would you tell anyway? You shared all of the same friends. Would they believe you? Do you even believe you? You ask yourself “Was it really as bad as I remember?”… or tell yourself “If I had said things differently, or more strongly, maybe he would have listened”. But he was supposed to be your friend, someone you could trust.
