I see people as having rich, complex human emotions that are not well described with overly simple and often stigmatizing diagnostic labels like depression or generalized anxiety. Each person is entirely unique, with their own history, strengths, and challenges. In therapy, I will work with you to better understand yourself. When we can understand why you might be feeling or thinking or acting in a way that is not best for you, we can work together to change it in a way that is tailored to your needs and your circumstances.

I help people lead an examined life. Our difficulties come and go, but there's wisdom in using them to learn about ourselves more deeply. This allows us to navigate life's challenges with more grace, and less pain and a lot more humor. Therapy is a funny thing. It's two people, in a room, agreeing to focus on improving one of their lives. Sounds astoundingly simple. When it works, it can offer profound, lasting, and substantial changes in one's life and, in the best case, allow you to develop depth, wisdom, and clarity. I work with people in tech, and leaders, artists and seekers who are looking to lead a vital and integrated life.

You can finally experience self love and acceptance, fulfilling intimacy, great health, & the ability to enjoy your achievements. You unapologetically set limits &boundaries that are in support of your needs & desires, & let yourself rise into a life where you actually have everything you want because you know in your bones just how worthy you are.

What matters to you? Being curious makes a significant difference when you are thinking of making changes because now you are interested in yourself - in what you think and feel and want- and want to become. Are relationships your core concern? - wondering what is working and what is not, what is missing, and what is disappointing?Losses or fear of loss makes us anxious, ashamed, often traumatized by our own feelings. I am committed to working with your personal needs in a trusting, creative, dynamic, caring process and will help you achieve what you desire. Real changes take real time.

You have lost motivation, direction, and a sense of purpose. You are not sure when it started, but you do not feel the same.

If you struggle to stop or reduce substance use or other addictive behaviors, I can help. I use a harm reduction approach to understanding and treating substance use and abuse. Instead of focusing only on one’s addiction, this approach explores other contributing factors, such as co-occurring mental illnesses, family relationships, and medical problems. It encourages the client to explore their unique needs and background, and to develop their own treatment goals, which may involve moderation management, in addition to abstinence. I also offer treatment for other impulse control disorders, such as sex addiction.

If you are feeling alone, lost, angry, depressed, you are right where you need to be. Part of embracing your true self involves a process of shedding beliefs, assumptions, and habits that are constricting and learning to express what you’ve censured. At a young age, we learned to shut down feelings, wishes, and impulses that were not pleasing to our parents and society. This allows us to gain acceptance, but it constricts our spontaneity and playfulness. I will join my clients on their journey to discover where they lost touch with their inner child and help them to rediscover the most authentic version of their self.

Asking for help takes courage when you find yourself overwhelmed and not sure what to do. I approach my work with compassion and understanding. I strive to create an environment for you that is safe, accepting, and free of judgement. I believe that the purpose of therapy is to learn more about ourselves by expressing ourselves openly and honestly without emphasis on what is "right" or "wrong." This can help us identify deep patterns that keep us stuck and create new ways of dealing with life's challenges and being in relationships.
