I specialize in working with individuals with autism and co-occurring psychiatric conditions. I understand how people with developmental disabilities may present psychiatric conditions differently, such as depression and anxiety, than individuals without developmental disabilities. I also enjoy working with college-aged/young adults who are in the process of transitioning to the "real world," and helping them with the stressors of "adulting."

Maybe you feel the tension in your body and hear the endless chatter of your thoughts? Intellectually you know you are good enough and lovable but there's a feeling that lingers. You might be considering that your physical pain could have roots in your thoughts/feelings. Perhaps you've experienced something really difficult and challenging. Maybe trauma(s)?

Beneficial psychotherapy provides a safe place for a trusting, collaborative relationship to develop between therapist and client. I provide an empathic 'space' where we can work together to consider the impact of stress, current challenges and past experiences on present difficulties to enable greater self-awareness, enhance quality of life and support behavioral changes that free one up to make the best possible choices for themselves in order to live life to its fullest. With focused attention, questions, observations and comments my clients and I strive together to define and achieve therapeutic goals in either short or long term psychotherapy.

The experience of engaging with a therapist for the first time or re-engaging after a pause can feel foreign, intimidating, and uncertain. I aim to meet clients exactly where they are with a warm, comforting approach that eases them in at a pace that they set, while making sure the time together feels rewarding, fulfilling, occasionally challenging, and well-spent. I enjoy walking alongside clients on their journeys of successes and struggles, transitions and decisions. I am excited to have some space open in my practice to welcome new clients. Feel free to reach out by email, text message, or phone call to explore next steps.

You have been been facing difficulties but feel unable to continue struggling alone. Therapy is a good option because often issues are best solved within the context of a collaborative therapeutic relationship. Your difficulties may be the result of current stresses, changes in your phase of life, long-standing difficulties with relationships, or childhood loss or abuse that continues to pain you. My psychoanalytically-informed approach to short or long-term therapy is based on gaining insight into what issues may be interfering with your ability to work effectively, enjoy life or relate to significant others.

With over 25 years of experience, I have many therapeutic approaches available. Past clients have told me that they appreciate my ability to listen reflectively but still provide active feedback and ideas that allow them to see a new angle on their problems and begin to change. I can be most helpful with relationship issues and with anxiety and depression. I have particular specialties in helping women with mid-life transition issues.
