Families come to me because their child or adolescent is struggling, and often times they don’t know where to begin to make things better. I work with children, teens, their parents, and young adults (up to age 25). I initially focus on learning about a person's challenges and strengths. Then, together we develop a plan for gaining mastery over difficulties, achieving goals, and ultimately reaching a child, teen, or early adult's potential. Often challenges feel overwhelming when first seeking help, but most families find initial sessions to clarify goals while also setting the stage for long-sought change.

September 2022: I am not accepting new patients until after the start of 2023. You are welcome to contact me and I will respond about availability when I am able. I have dedicated my 20 year long career to the premise that we must know what is possible and have capacity to do it before we can be free to choose. During my academic studies in Psychology, Philosophy, Religion, and Social Work I was introduced to the intersections of Queer and Gender theories and became ignited with the framework of knowledge, power, control, and paths to liberation, all of which continue to inform my practice.

Thanks to COVID, I'm working only via telehealth which reduces your commute time. If you're looking for a seasoned and experienced therapist, reach out, we can consult and see if working with me is useful to you. My clients tend to be working on being awake and aware of and attuned to the complexity of our culture today. I work with issues of alternative sexuality, gender dysphoria, relationships in all forms including relationships that are kink friendly and/or poly.

Suffering draws us to consider therapy, much as it sends us to any doctor. The suffering therapy focuses on is emotional and existential (a LIFE that is out of whack). If you are considering therapy it means that you take your suffering seriously and wish to seek a more fulfilling life. You know instinctively that more is possible. I have many years of experience in helping people to develop greater strength and more fulfilling relationships.

I AM NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. People's reasons for seeking therapy are as varied as the individuals themselves. For some, therapy is part of a broader approach to life in which insight and inner work are seen as core elements to living well and expansively. For others, the step to seek therapy is taken out of pain and suffering and after much deliberation. At times our internal experiences are so painful, they prevent us from fully engaging in our lives and relationships. Therapy can help you learn to hold with care and confidence all your thoughts, feelings and memories while moving through life in a meaningful way.

My work is devoted to helping college students and adults achieve the fulfilling lives they aspire to. My clients struggle with different issues, including: -worries and anxiety; -being overwhelmed by stress and not knowing how to find peace; -depression and low self-esteem; -work problems; -grief; -problems with relationships and intimacy; -seeking meaning in their lives; and -a desire for spirituality and creativity. Since it's usually so hard to change our habitual ways of doing things and it takes courage, my work encourages humor and teaches self-compassion. What I offer to others is the opportunity to learn to love themselves.

I have been a practicing psychotherapist for over 20 years. I have had the opportunity to work within very unique and challenging clinical settings, including within a school, within a psychiatric center, within a residential campus and for the past decade within my current outpatient practice. The aforementioned settings have afforded a wealth of empirically based mental health insight and training, while also allowing efforts to gather invaluable clinical experiences working with adults and adolescents, dealing with mental health issues ranging from anxiety, depression, Bipolar Disorder and various other personality disorders.

Parenting a child with special needs or an adopted child who has experienced trauma requires extraordinary strength. Care-giving for aging parents presents similar demands that intensify our need for a listening ear and access to resources. If you are in the midst of the tension between managing a child or parent's medical and emotional needs while equipping him/her to independently provide as much self-care as possible, you could use some serious encouragement. The internal conflict that arises as you meet -- and fail to meet -- the parenting/care-giving challenge(s) is an experience not meant to be faced alone.

Therapy is an opportunity to help people diminish pain, cope with challenges, and gain support through adverse experiences. Additionally, it challenges personal growth through insight development, compassion and attentiveness. I have 14 years of experience in a variety of therapeutic settings that have equipped me especially in areas of relational dynamics, leadership and identity development. I often work with individuals struggling to align their beliefs and values with the people around them; whether that's the family, workplace or a faith institution.

One of the biggest challenges people face is answering the overwhelming question: What comes next? Whether it’s trying to navigate a loss, career or life change, or the fear, anxiety and uncertainty of a changing and complex world, I feel called to walk along side people as they forge a path ahead. I love to collaborate with people and help them uncover their own inner wisdom. By helping individuals to learn new skills, they are better able to quiet the storm of emotions inside them and make better choices that bring them greater peace.

I subscribe to a relational and attachment-based therapeutic style rooted in modern psychodynamic psychotherapy. My diverse educational and professional background enables me to draw from a variety of evidence-based practices in order to best meet the needs of each individual client and family unit. I provide my clients with warmth, empathy, and unconditional positive regard in order to ensure that they feel listened to and understood. I believe that in most cases the therapeutic relationship itself is the “medicine,” or the primary vehicle for change in therapy.

Adoption Therapists
In recent years, psychologists have begun to investigate how adopted children and their adoptive families navigate their lives together. In an attempt to help children who have been adopted adjust and thrive in a new home, and to understand why problems may arise, studies look at the genetic as well as both prenatal and postnatal environmental influences on the development of children who have been adopted.
