My clinical interests include depression, anxiety, ADHD, adjustment problems, OCD, trauma, attachment, and parenting concerns to name a few. I work with ages three and up and particularly enjoy helping families and parents learn and practice healthier communication styles and conflict resolution. I am passionate about providing evidence-based (proven effective by research) treatments while meeting clients where they are at and helping them get to where they would like to be in life. I bring humor and warmth to sessions with a direct, active, and collaborative style. I emphasize validation and create a non-judgmental atmosphere.

Depression and anxiety can impede our careers, relationships, self confidence, success and happiness. If you feel unmotivated, disappointed in self or others, envious, or unsure of yourself, there may be powerful root causes lying just outside your awareness. Often I can help, even if other attempts have failed. How do you choose a therapist? Training and experience matter. I trained at Stanford and Columbia, finished 2 postdoctoral fellowships, completed full psychoanalytic training, and have practiced for 25+ years. While therapy is never a quick fix, it can lead to greater success and happiness. Offering teletherapy nationwide.

As a relational therapist with previous experience as a youth worker, I believe most suffering is caused by a failure of belonging. When trauma or other significant difficulties occur, we can take on beliefs and ways of being that are bound by the feeling that we are alone and unable to access the world of belonging, both within ourselves and in relationships. We find it almost impossible to honor all our parts and to feel free to accept them. My aim as a therapist, then, is to create a space where a client’s experiences may fully belong and they may feel understood and valued for who they are in the way they choose to be.

I believe you are the authority on your own life. Within you exists the potential to express your authentic self and to live a fulfilling life. However, there are times in our lives when we may experience stress, depression, anxiety, anger, or complacency. When this happens it can be difficult to manage our lives effectively and with peace of mind. This is when professional support can be helpful. Whatever concerns you are struggling with, I will collaborate with you to help you identify your goals and develop a treatment approach to empower you to realize them.

I am a trauma-informed bodyworker and Somatic Experiencing Practitioner offering a body-centered approach for the healing of trauma and chronic pain. Traditional therapy approaches often have difficulty addressing the bodily effects of trauma, anxiety and depression. Habits and patterns that get "stuck" in the body can keep these types of issues from resolving, even after many years of successful therapy. As an adjunct to traditional therapy, my body-centered approach to Somatic Experiencing provides a unique opportunity to support the physical integration of mental and emotional change that help people recovering from trauma to truly FEEL better.

Walk Talk Therapy is just like it sounds-we are outdoors walking side by side during therapy instead of sitting inside an office. Walk Talk Therapy is a more relaxed environment than the counseling office. Walking while sharing your struggles and life situations can also be meditative. Research has consistently shown that exercise can significantly impact anxiety and stress while improving overall mood. I work with teens, adults, couples and families. If you're feeling stuck and disconnected from others, you have trouble sitting still or you want a new perspective, I welcome your email or phone call.
