As an integrative psychotherapist, I enjoy working with clients who wish to approach their challenges holistically. I guide clients to explore the mind-body-spirit connection, and I empower them to make lifestyle changes and use mind-body tools to reduce stress and build wellbeing. I support clients struggling with chronic stress, anxiety, life transitions, relationship struggles, and depression. I use body awareness and relaxation techniques to reduce the stress response, psychodynamic techniques to bring insight into past experiences, and CBT to transform thoughts and behaviors. Together, these modalities help clients get unstuck.

Times of transition can often cause us to feel overwhelmed and alone. While people close to us may be supportive, we may not always feel able to share with them our doubts and discomfort. Having an empathic therapist who can objectively help us navigate the journey is invaluable.

Online Counseling for Men: Are you a man who feels stuck between anger and numbness? Stressed out and anxious? Maybe you've doubted going to therapy because it seems too strange. Do you wish something would change in your relationship, but you don't know what to do--or worried it might end? Or maybe you're the guy who's constantly the friend of every woman you'd actually like to date. Plus, COVID-19 has raised all these stresses to the nth power. For white guys, maybe you're also realizing how race and racism have played a role in your life. You're ready to take steps to undo harm--but it seems like there's no way out.
