Sometimes the reasons people seek therapy are hard to pinpoint or articulate. Other times the totally unexpected brings a person into therapy. Often it is the thing one least wants to discuss. The reasons are countless, but they always matter. They affect our thoughts and our relationships, often quite deeply. My purpose as a therapist is to develop a relationship and a context that feels restorative and safe through which my patients and I can grapple with any and all concerns imaginable. Through intimate conversation and our shared experience emerge feelings, buried fears, and the previously unknowable.

My approach towards counseling is to be a caring, empathic listener who objectively guides clients to understanding themselves and the origins of their problems to prevent their reoccurrence. We will work together to define your personal goals and explore how you can strengthen your resources to reach them. Some typical outcomes of therapy include improved self-confidence, greater ability to maintain mutually satisfying relationships, and even increased productivity. Clients often comment that they appreciate my calm and accepting demeanor.

I provide services for clients who I believe have the capacity to resolve their own problems with my assistance. I offer a professional relationship with my clients to assist them in exploring and resolving difficult issues. I believe that as people become more accepting of themselves, they are more capable of finding happiness and contentment in their lives. Self-awareness and self-acceptance are goals that sometimes take a long time to achieve. While some clients may need only a few counseling sessions to feel complete, others may require months. I offer a caring, empathic space to explore, heal and to try new ways of being.

Clients come to counseling for various reasons. In my experience with the clients, some of them just needed time and space for them to be heard because they did not have that resource with others in their life. Their friends and family could be great support but couldn’t necessarily offer professional help such as treatment. Some people, including myself, may struggle with things they are not able to express clearly. Some may be just confused about life and need some coaching from the counselors.

Are you having difficulty adjusting to the "new normal" of social distancing? While keeping us physically healthy, social distancing can lead to feelings of isolation and loneliness. The stress of the current pandemic may also be worsening pre-existing problems such as depression, anxiety and PTSD. Children may also be misbehaving more and experiencing anxiety, and families quarantining together may be fighting more. If you are struggling financially due to the pandemic, we can help. As a non-profit therapy center, we accept a variety of insurance plans and offer sliding scales fees.

Life happens to all of us; stressors are inevitable, unresolved feelings may arise and it can all be just a little bit overwhelming. Despite our best efforts we may find ourselves overly stressed, alone, anxious, or just tired. Whether it’s dealing with a transition, a loss, a tragedy, a relationship, or just the daily highs and lows, we all deserve a place to decompress and process what life throws at us. Maybe this is a tough season for you, or maybe you just need support as you work on your goals. Therapy should act as both a safe space filled with warmth and compassion, and a brave space that challenges and empowers.

My approach as a psychologist and psychoanalyst involves our working together to understand who you are & what brought you to your current circumstances. Together we can then make connections and work through issues in a way that can facilitate your growth and understanding of yourself. Issues common in my practice include facing self defeating patterns, examining roadblocks in your professional life, long term self-esteem struggles, complicated relationship issues, mood struggles, eating and weight issues, trauma and loss. My approach is collaborative with a focus on relationships and key life experiences, both present and past.

Having completed fellowships in Child & Adolescent Psychodynamic Therapy, and Adult Psychodynamic Therapy, I work primarily with children, adolescents, and young adults. I work from a base of psychodynamic and interpersonal talk therapy (in the form of play with younger children) to build awareness and to work through internal distress or conflict. I augment this work by using third-wave CBT modalities, which draw on mindfulness strategies and skills, in order to use ‘achieved awareness and understanding’, to live in new, more balanced, skillful, and regulated ways.
