Announcement icon At this time, I am seeing clients both in person and virtually. In person clients will be required to wear a mask while in the waiting room.

About

I work with individuals seeking help with a wide range of difficulties, including depression and anxiety, trauma, addiction, perinatal/postpartum depression, relationship difficulties, gender and sexual identity and significant life transitions (starting high school or college, getting married, parenthood, divorce, retirement). My approach to therapy is interactive, supportive, and empathetic. I see psychotherapy as a creative process and my patients as co-partners in this process of exploration and discovery.
It is my goal to provide a safe and comfortable environment for you to present your issues, needs, and goals, and for these topics to be met with empathy and without judgement. Together, we will work in an atmosphere of acceptance and safety with the goal of greater self-awareness, emotional comfort, and relationship satisfaction.
You have all the strength you need inside you; it is my goal to assist you in accessing that strength and utilizing it on your journey to self-discovery.
