I believe relationships are the foundation of our emotional experience--this includes both the relationship we have with ourselves and the relationships we have with others. Often, feeling disconnected from our self can cause us to feel disconnected in other areas of life, such as our career, family, friends, or hobbies. I believe healing occurs when we increase our understanding of ourselves and our relationships, and use that awareness to cultivate new experiences. In my practice, I can help you learn about yourself and support you in stepping outside your comfort zone to make the personal changes you want to see in your life.

My therapeutic style is engaging, authentic, collaborative, and sometimes humorous. I work with you to identify your personal goals and support you in breaking through barriers to achieve them. Some of my specialities include dating abuse and domestic violence, adult survivors of parental abuse, childhood sexual abuse, disrupted attachment, and anger issues.

Finding the right therapist can be challenging. I believe that you must feel the therapeutic relationship is a good fit in order to do your best work. I offer a free 20-minute phone consultation in which I can learn a bit about you and answer any questions you may have.
