Couples therapy from a self- psychological approach, a branch of psychoanalytic theory, is a current focus.
How do you go from feeling overwhelmed and lost to clarity and a solid sense of self? Contemplating this journey informs my work as a psychotherapist. In my experience, the single most important factor that leads to significant change is the development of a trusting client-therapist relationship. This allows trust in new possibilities,and seeing yourself differently and considering this new sense of self. I liken therapy to reorganizing heavy furniture in a room and in some cases getting rid of pieces. The furniture represents the client's view of self. With acceptance and empathic curiosity, change can begin.

Hello and Welcome! I feel that simply being present, actively listening, and earning trust is vital to utilizing therapeutic tools during the counseling process I see every person I work with as a unique, resilient individual whose life matters, as well as someone who I may get to know and grow with. As an eclectic counselor, I integrate elements from approaches such as person-centered, cognitive behavioral, psychoanalytic , as well as tuning in to various dialectic/mindfulness exercises. I enjoy working alongside (so-to-speak) adults, young adults, and adolescents in the clinical and community setting.

Contemporary psychoanalytic approach is the foundation of my work.
It can be hard to change our habits and ways of relating with ourselves and with others even when old patterns are causing significant emotional pain. For real change to take place, something beyond motivation and a commitment to change is often needed. What can make a real difference involves finding a receptive person and an accepting environment that fosters a deeper understanding of one's self. I strive to provide such a receptive and safe environment to my clients with the hope that they feel listened to, understood, and recognized in their desires to get to know themselves, to connect with others and to feel alive in the world

In journeying through your growth process, it's important that you select a therapist that you trust will meet you where you are, and hold space for you in a way that feels organic. I hope to offer you such. While I've been trained in many modalities, I'm 100% in support of eclectic therapy which rejects a "one-size-fits- all" approach. Therapy can mean something different to each person seeking support---and that's okay. Whether you're experiencing some form of stress or seeking balance in the midst of a life transition, together we can find a way to restore, rebuild or even newly create both understanding and solutions.

I have a passion for walking people through the therapeutic process, for healing old wounds, solving problems and seeing profound changes in my clients' lives. All of my clients are my ideal clients. I love the psychotherapy process, both personally and professionally. In my opinion psychotherapy is both a necessity and a luxury in staying sane. Taking the time to care about yourself and/or your family, children or loved ones, focusing on what is hurting and not working well and trusting me to offer perspectives, insights, connections, ideas, advice, and understanding can turn most challenging situations around.

On the outside, it looks like you have it all together. You have a good job, a stable relationship and a strong network of friends. But on the inside, it’s a completely different story. You’re always comparing yourself to others and feel like you never measure up. You feel like a fraud at work and are sure that someday you’re going to be found out. To make up for all the flaws you’re sure you have, you go out of your way to be accommodating and dependable. Putting other people’s needs before your own has become second nature. And you’re exhausted.
