Life is a journey that does not always run smoothly. Sometimes we could use a little help on the way.

I strive to listen to your concerns in a respectful, mindful, non-judgmental manner. I welcome cases over a variety of age ranges and issues (including, but not limited to) anxiety, depression, parenting/family/workplace/social stress, and self-esteem issues.
Individual psychotherapy for: anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues, vocational and academic functioning, looking for better ways of being in the world. I work with adults, children, teens and young adults and families. I specialize in working with individuals who have experienced trauma in their lives.
Calling upon my 20+ year experience as a training and development executive combined with my degree in counseling, I provide a unique perspective and approach to counseling. My specialty is a solution-based, action-oriented model. I counsel individuals, couples & families who are facing significant life transitions, including career/job, relationship/marriage, health/wellness, or specific goal-seeking issues. I partner with my clients to address their impediments to change. By crafting a strategy to achieve personal and professional goals, including identifying the psychological barriers to achieving them, I help turn these goals into reality.
OPEN TO RETURNING CLIENTS ONLY. I specialize in working with adolescents and young adults ages 13 to 30, but I do treat all adults. I have 20+ years of experience helping young people and their families negotiate major life transitions, relationship challenges, school related academic and social issues, as well as managing symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma and substance abuse. I understand the neccesity of collaborating with families of teens and individualizing each person's treatment approach. I am also aware of the specific dynamics of many of the local schools and universities, and can help navigate through those systems.
I believe that no problem is too small when seeking help in a difficult situation. My goal is to create a warm and comfortable place where clients can share, grow and gain balance and fulfillment in their lives. As a clinical licensed psychologist I provide evidence-based treatment for problems including anxiety (and related disorders, such as Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder), depression and many other concerns, such as trauma and grief, substance abuse, adjustment difficulties or problems in interpersonal relationships.
It is my belief that what the human spirit yearns for most is to be heard in a genuine, non-judgmental, and compassionate way. My goal is to provide a therapeutic environment where my clients feel comfortable to express themselves in their most authentic light. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). It has been my experience, that personal transparency has been most effective in developing a therapeutic relationship in helping others meet their needs while in treatment. I also support those who take a non-diagnostic view to their mental health, and who’ve experienced harms through psychiatric medication and/or MH treatments.
Are you struggling to cope with a difficult life transition? Navigating young adulthood, becoming a parent, grieving a loss, overcoming trauma, and similarly challenging moments can test our resilience. They demand flexibility, patience, and insight just when it is most difficult to access those skills. I specialize in helping clients reduce their suffering through these transitions and flourish into the future.
The ideal client is anyone who acknowledges they are open to change. As Yogi Berra famously said, "Ninety percent of this game is half mental, the other half is physical." Openness to thinking in new ways and then backing that up with new behaviors is crucial to successful change.

I want you to have the best life imaginable: to live in a body that can feel what it feels and with a mind that can know what it knows. I believe we heal through connection and relationship ; it is how we survive then thrive. Sometimes we need to make meaning of our experiences; sometimes we just want to manage or reduce unwanted symptoms and sometimes we need someone to simple be present- to sit and witness and listen or hold the silence. I hope you will find all these elements working with me and together we will walk the path to healing. Come in and let's explore together!
Study after study indicates that what "works" in therapy is the quality of the relationship between the client and therapist. I create a strong relationship in which my clients feel safe and understood while sharing and exploring their lives.
I conceptualize from a psychodynamic orientation and contour treatment to the specific needs of the individual.
My practice focuses on helping adolescents and adults who are struggling to overcome anxiety, depression, and adjustment disorders. I have particular expertise in working with men of all ages. I also focus on couples that are struggling to resolve differences and achieve greater harmony and intimacy. Often, differing parenting styles contribute to disconnects within a couple, particularly when parenting children with emotional, behavioral or developmental challenges and differences. I work with such couples to create a more unified parenting structure and to strike the important balance of familial obligation and self-care.
