My specialties include treatment of problems related to foster care, adoption , and family and other interpersonal relationships, issues with attachment, anxiety, depression, and trauma.
Congratulations on taking the first step on your journey towards becoming a better you. Acknowledging the need to change is easy but following through is difficult. Finding the right person to help you through your journey can be draining but important in successfully accomplishing your goals. Allowing yourself to be vulnerable to another person is scary, but it is a strength that aids in the healing process. Humanistic and cognitive behavioral theories are used in an integrative approach to help understand your unique life experiences and how they have led to deficit-based feelings, emotions, and behaviors.

Thank you for your interest in my practice. I see therapy as a powerful two-person process of discovery and acceptance. In session we laugh, we cry, we understand and we grow. We read over the past, stay rooted in the present, and look forward to a more balanced and fulfilling future. My integrative approach to treatment is rooted in interpersonal psychodynamic theory, but also drives from other models to meet each person's unique needs. My areas of expertise include trauma work, college mental health, issues related to international relocation, cultural integration, study abroad, body-mind balance, and adoption .

I provide child, adolescent and adult psychotherapy for a variety of issues, including anxiety, low self esteem, trauma, adoption and loss. With these kinds of issues, play and art therapy interventions are helpful for children and adolescents. For clients struggling with anxiety and developmental issues such as Autism, ADHD, a more didactic, cognitive-behavioral strategy oriented approach can be used. My work with adults is psychodynamically based with use of strategies from dialectical and cognitive therapies as warranted. Another important component of my practice is neuropsychological assessment for learning, attention, social and emotional issues in children, adolescents and adults.

I work with LGBT and straight individuals and couples, striving to help people feel comfortable expressing their feelings and asserting their needs. I have advanced training in trauma, adoption , gay/lesbian and couple's therapy. I also have expertise treating the impact of parental divorce, substance abuse and immigration on adult-child relationships. An important goal is for you to gain more control of your issues and feel more confident in your decisions.

Life can be overwhelming on any given day, but when mental health concerns are added to the mix, it can seem impossible to overcome even small hiccups. This is normal, but it is not something that you should have to deal with alone. My goal as a therapist is to address whatever problems you are experiencing at any given moment. I provide structured sessions using evidence-based approaches to help you or your family tackle concerns related to anxiety, depression, ADHD, behavioral issues, trauma, grief, relationship stressors, infertility and adoption issues, sport performance, and life adjustments.

Grief and trauma in children or adults can result in strong feelings that disrupt daily life and one's experience of safety. Similarly anxiety and depression may deprive one of the ability to live life with a sense of agency, flexibility, and pleasure. In therapy, I seek to engage you in an ongoing dialogue to discover who you are, what shaped you, and what continues to influence you. Our relationship serves as a vehicle for you to discover your narrative and live a more satisfying life with fulfilling relationships, play, and purpose.

Are you a queer or trans person feeling stuck or disconnected and looking for support with your relationships, identity, or gender? For many of us, navigating intimacy and seeking purpose in our lives can bring up the legacies of shame, estrangement, and trauma, and make us feel anxious, overwhelmed, lonely, or empty—especially in a time of increasing uncertainty, heightened injustice, and institutional failures. But as queer people we’re also highly adaptive and resilient. In my practice, I help clients build on this strength so they can brave tough moments, heal, and find a greater sense of authenticity and trust in themselves.

All of us hit points in our lives when we need a little extra help. Whether it is facing a new crisis, struggling with difficulties in a relationship, or coping with a long-standing mental health issue such as anxiety or depression, therapy can be helpful by providing a space for growth, change, and healing. Throughout my over ten years of practicing psychotherapy, I have felt privileged to witness and be a part of that healing process with my clients.

It is my belief that seeking help is a courageous step that should be commended. Therapy offers us an opportunity to get to know ourselves, and provides a safe and comfortable space to think about the ways we can make our lives better. In this space, we come to understand the deeper meanings of the problems we face, gain the emotional tools to solve these problems, and become more confident in the decisions we make. Therapy can help to slow life down, and helps us find a place in it that fits who we are.

You may have been taught that seeking help is weak or that if you are struggling you are innately flawed. Nothing could be further from the truth. We all are under life’s mercy and reaching out for support is one of the most powerful and important things you can do for yourself. Together through deep introspection, self-focus, and collaborative action, we will build within you a strong set of tools to help you move through your life with more confidence and ease. Through our work, we will uncover and strengthen the resilience that lies within you and set you up for the life you want to live.

Everyone goes through periods in their lives when they feel stuck with work and/or love. They can feel overwhelmed about the choices they have to make or feel forsaken by the perceived lack of opportunities. During these stressful times, they often lose their center, their sense of being grounded, and forget about the importance of personal care.

Life can be painful and complicated at times, and so often we react instead of respond to stress. Whether you are an adult, teen, or child, emotions can be complex to navigate and difficult to manage alone. My goal is to support you through difficult moments, help you build awareness and understanding for your behaviors and feelings, gain clarity in confusing times, better understand your relationships, and ultimately help you see life in clearer terms. As a collaborator on this journey, I aim to provide a nurturing and safe environment so that you may explore your internal nature and grow in all the ways you desire.

Being a first time parent is full of joy and expectation, however it can also be full of anxiety and overwhelming feelings. Unexpected NICU stays, traumatic birth, abortion, and miscarriages can leave deep emotional scars and anxiety about the future. How to address discipline, teenage transitions, empty nesting, can be challenging. Whether it is your first child or fifth child all parents want to be the best possible parent(s) for their children. I am here to support you throughout the life span of your parenting journey, from pre-natal, post-partum, and the many years in-between to adulthood.

We can all get trapped in a way of thinking or relating to the world that does not serve our end goals. I work with clients to help them become aware of these patterns, understand their origin and utility, while at the same time fostering the freedom, perspective, and skills to break away from these patterns when needed. I view therapy as a co-investigative process, where you and I can look together, with neutrality, curiosity and compassion, at the forces that are shaping your emotional life, and see if there might be a different way of experiencing the world.

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.
