Weekend appointments available. I appreciate an open dialogue with my clients that incorporates feedback to ensure their needs are being met during our time together.  In my view, the client-therapist relationship should prioritize honesty and respect and while diagnosing is one aspect of psychotherapy, I am most interested in how your daily life is being impacted and what we can do in our work together to develop coping and awareness that will bring more harmony and help you lead a more fulfilled life.

We can't always control what life brings our way, but we can choose how we respond to it. I enjoy helping people reconnect with their natural wisdom in the midst of life's challenges. My goal is to help my clients gain awareness of what is already working in their lives and what patterns and habits have become outdated or self-defeating. A situation, problem or symptom that appears unworkable or overwhelming can offer the key to its own healing when held with gentle, inquisitive attention.

Raising children is a fulfilling and puzzling part of our lives. From that first day we meet our new baby, a world of hope, wishes, and new possibilities begin. Parents don't leave the hospital with a guidebook on how to address every bump and hurdle along the way. Children are unique, complex, and exciting. Sometimes however, they also need extra support. In my therapeutic work, I partner with you to understand the needs of your family and that of your child. Together we explore the concerns which bring you into my office - whether trauma, adjustment, anxiety, school related concerns, or behavioral challenges.

The recent years have been exceptionally stressful and full of anxiety for many of us. We can all use therapeutic support to navigate life's transitions, family issues, medical illness, and also grief (to name a few). Having a safe space to process our innermost thoughts and feelings can be a big first step in working towards change. My main goal in treatment is to create a space where clients can be their true selves, express their true feelings, and gain true insight.

I specialize in working with adolescents and young adults facing a disruption within their lives, such as a serious illness like cancer, as well as parents, family members and caregivers who are affected by what their loved one is forced to endure. I also have extensive experience working with adolescents and young adults facing anxiety and depression due to life changes and emerging adulthood. Life is unexpected and, at any moment, we can be derailed from our path and forced to face unbelievable challenges. The stress and frustration that can accompany a traumatic situation can be overwhelming, terrifying, and exhausting.

These struggles may have been recent, or they may reflect traumatic experiences or parts of our lives that have been problematic for many years.
