As a psychotherapist I have worked with adults, young adults and adolescents around issues of depression, anxiety, loss and trauma. My practice includes those who are at the edge of major life changes and those who feel themselves outside the norm. I work with survivors and children of survivors of trauma, whether inter-familial or war-related, as well as those who find themselves straddling two worlds (cultural, socioeconomic, racial, ethnic, religious, etc.). Areas of focus include adoption , immigration, and identity.

Are you struggling with anxiety or depression? Do you have a challenging relationship with someone you care about? Maybe your parents, your spouse or any other family member? Sometimes our closest relationships can be the most difficult ones to navigate. Your future depends on what you do now.

I offer additional expertise in the areas of relationships, sexual orientation, gender identity, and adoption issues.
I believe that people have an innate capacity to heal and change. Access to this healing is sometimes blocked by negative and destructive patterns that are formed when there is a need to adapt and survive difficult, traumatic or overwhelming experiences. In a collaborative, empathic, and safe atmosphere, I facilitate people’s connections to their own resources and foster the creation of a compassionate self that is free to make mindful choices and unhook old patterns. Through psychodynamic, humanistic and somatically oriented approaches, I help people find new insights and awareness, build resiliency and create pathways to greater fulfillment.

Carving out time to air your concerns with a therapist you are comfortable with can bring relief and help you navigate a path that feels meaningful, fulfilling, and authentic. I work primarily with individual adults. Some of my areas of focus are: identity, anxiety, depression, relationships, stress, self-esteem, adoption , coping skills, spirituality, trauma, LGBTQ+, life crises and transitions. Often when you address one area, clarifying and working with what is within your control, other areas improve as well, as you access your strengths.

I am passionate about supporting people who range in age from early childhood through adulthood. My background in child psychology informs my work with adults as well, as I am always considering how a person's developmental path and early relationships have shaped them. In therapy, I strive to bring empathy and humor to the process. You can expect me to be curious about and accepting of your experiences as I support you in actively working towards change. I am sensitive to issues related to disability, immigration, foster care, adoption , and non-traditional forms of family building, and welcome all to my practice.

Tele-therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery, and in my sessions I promote behavioral transformation by encouraging a positive outlook and the adoption of new attitudes and reactions.
I have clinical experience working with children, adolescents, and adults struggling with anxiety, depression, ADHD, Autism, low self-esteem, relationship/social issues, grief and trauma. I practice from a person-centered/cognitive behavioral and psycho-dynamic approach and believe that a strong therapeutic relationship creates a foundation for growth and change. I believe in an eclectic accepting approach and tailor the therapy treatment to each client’s individual needs. I work to create a safe space for clients to explore their lives, identify their strengths, build coping skills, and work towards healing.

As a therapist, my goal is not give you advice or tell you what to do. I want to be able to help you make the most informed decision for yourself, and guide you in finding a solution or outcome that would best suite your needs.

I'm a psychotherapist and psychoanalyst with more than 35 years of experience. My goal is to enable my clients to better understand themselves and their hidden emotional conflicts. Self-awareness and self-knowledge are empowering because our deepest desires for love, connectedness, and achievement are typically tangled up in bad feelings - like shame, guilt or anxiety -- that obstruct us from pursuing their fulfillment. These bad feelings are often based on unrealistic ideas, the residues of childhood experience. I work with clients to disentangle their vital wishes from these constraints so that they can live more authentic and creative lives.

Sometimes life throws curves that seem to be insurmountable. Talking with a therapist can help you pay attention to and resolve the conflict that has gotten in the way of you having a more fulfilling life. Problems at work or school, inability to get a good night's rest, overeating are among the issues that you can't see as having you stuck. Depression or anxiety are real issues that must be worked through to get you back on track. Separation and loss are areas that can cause trauma. Trauma can be leaving home to go to college, the loss of a relationship, grief of loosing someone to death. Talking can get you through.

Accepting New Clients for immediate telehealth appointments! One of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your emotions through therapy. You deserve to experience your life in a way that brings you joy. My goal is to provide a warm, non-judgmental space for you to do just that. You may find that since a traumatic life event you don't feel quite like yourself anymore. Maybe you are feeling more angry. Sleeping more. Perhaps the challenges of the long pandemic have made you feel stressed or frequently tearful. A loss of someone you love might have you feeling hopeless. Perhaps caregiving for family has you depleted.

Congratulations on taking this step in seeking help and support for yourself or your family. I work with children and adolescents, families, men, and women. My 20-plus years of clinical work with children and families is built on an attachment-oriented foundation and is informed by my personal experience as an adoptive parent and training in relevant play and family therapies. Regardless of a child’s emotional/behavioral presentation or attachment (RAD) history, I view parents as partners in their child’s therapeutic process and support and guide them, in parent sessions and/or in family sessions with their child.

We develop relationship patterns early in our lives and repeat important aspects of them going forward. Many of the obstacles that emerge in our efforts to achieve our goals and make fulfilling lives for ourselves follow on our unwitting repetition of these patterns. They made sense then, but impede you now. My approach to therapy will involve getting to know you in some depth, in order to use the relationship we create to identify these patterns and allow you to more consciously shape your life.
