Rumi wrote, “Don’t turn away. Keep your gaze on the bandaged place. That’s where the light enters you.” We spend a lot of time running from our pain, trying to drown it out or stuff it down with distractions--work, relationships, media, alcohol. When we stop running, stop hiding, we are able to face our pain head on. Only then, are we able to be fully present and aware, which is the first step to acceptance and later, transformation. Partnering with a therapist can make this feel less daunting. I can teach you skills to manage your emotions so that they won’t overwhelm you. Together, we can help you find where the light enters you.

Therapy is an opportunity to learn about yourself and to empower yourself to grow and make necessary shifts in order to live a more fulfilling and satisfying life. We will work together from start to finish, to uncover the best version of yourself. The foundation of my work is client-centered and trauma-focused, which concentrates on establishing trust and respect in order for change to occur. I have experience working with individuals who have endured trauma and as a result struggle with anxiety and depression.

I have worked as a social worker for over 25 years and feel most rewarded in assisting those struggling to identify how life holds each of us back, locating the courage to confront barriers to living our best life and managing life transitions. I specialize in working with those who have experienced trauma (and in particular adults who have experienced childhood trauma), anxiety disorders, depression and self harm behaviors. I work with mid-life individuals who are learning to navigate stressors particular to the "third act" of life while sustaining a balanced and meaningful life.

My work is devoted to helping college students and adults achieve the fulfilling lives they aspire to.

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.
