Feeling disconnected and looking for meaningful connections with family and friends around you? Exhausted being the person who aims to please others, but then silently struggle with pain and resentment alone? Spending hours and days feeling confused, irritated and disappointed because you feel like a fulfilling life is not meant for you? You don't have to let the events of your past define you and expressing your pain does not need to happen in solitude. I have been where you are now and empathize with your pain. I am here to help shed the feeling of helplessness and self-blame that are holding you back.

A unique perspective of persons as inherently dignified, supported by philosophic and scientific education and study, informs my holistic view of the person sitting in front of me during the process of psychotherapy. With mindful attentiveness and by gently confronting obstacles and threats to emotional health and relational satisfaction in a collaborative manner, the patients I work with are able to experience an increase in personal resilience simultaneous to undergoing the process of cathartic healing. My use of techniques drawn from an array of professional proclivities creates a safe relationship that nourishes innate strengths

Therapy provides an opportunity to make growth in all areas from the inside-out. I view therapy as a journey towards self-discovery and fulfillment. It is a collaborative process built on trust, compassion, validation, and support. I want you to feel heard and safe to share your story, free of judgment. I am passionate about working with children, tweens, adolescents, young adults, and families.

Navigating transition or change can be HARD; I partner with you to help make it easier. Together we will uncover and explore patterns of thinking, feeling, and acting to help you feel better and live the life you want for yourself. In my office, I hope you feel heard, understood, and cared for. I acknowledge societal inequities in our work together, such as racism, sexism, and ageism. I hope to do all this while maintaining a sense of humor and not taking myself too seriously.

Do you experience anxiety, including social fear and avoidance? Do you feel anxious in romantic relationships or just want to feel less worried and depressed? I get it! Does your angst leave you feeling empty, angry and irritable? Life can be absolutely overwhelming and actually scary, at times, especially when stress piles up and we’re trying to juggle a career, a marriage and parenting. Unhealed wounds and traumatic experiences from our past wreak havoc on our present and we don’t know how to repair the damage. But there are answers!

Clients come to me when they are facing a challenge that they need support with. They might be wondering if there’s more to life or how they can feel more satisfaction in their lives. I can help you look at the blocks that are keeping you from reaching your goals. To do this I use a Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT) approach as well as a Solution-Focused approach. I work holistically and see individuals as part of a family or other larger system. I offer a supportive, nurturing, safe, and confidential environment in which you can explore and find solutions for what is getting in the way of the life you want to lead.

Living comes with its fair share of stressors, and yet, your situation is unique to you. Do you need a chance to regroup, sort through ideas, and move through a rough spot? Perhaps you haven't quite felt yourself, and you want to get back to you. Maybe you and someone significant have been experiencing conflict, and you would like a neutral party to help work through the complicated reactions that have resulted and come to a clear resolution. If you find yourself in one of these scenarios, I would gladly offer perspective and a listening ear.
