My several areas of specialization include working with people who live with chronic physical illness, various women's issues (fertility, pregnancy, motherhood, body image, and STDs), couples therapy, depression, and anxiety.
With my hopeful and positive outlook on change, I strive to help people achieve a fresh and holistic perspective on their lives. By working collaboratively in psychotherapy, I specialize in helping people heal wounds left by past relationships, establish and deepen relationships with others, develop a better understanding of self, and improve overall quality of life, including decreased stress and anxiety, an increasingly satisfying professional life, and reduction of physical pain.

I specialize in anxiety, trauma, and women's issues .
You're tired and life is coming at you fast. You start to notice that you can no longer roll with the punches like you used to. At the very worst, you are sleep deprived, your anxiety is numbing, and you feel like a hot mess. Sometimes you don't recognize the person in the mirror. All the while you wish you could bounce back to your old self, someone who could power through the stresses of daily life without skipping a beat. I'm here to tell you it's not too late. Together we will envision the life you want, create a plan to get you there, and work through the roadblocks. If you're feeling overwhelmed and under pressure, let's talk.

I have extensive experience in relationship dynamics and couples counseling,career and executive coaching, ADHD, parenting, family therapy, and women's issues (including sexual reproductive health and cancer).
Throughout life, we all face many challenges...Maybe it's a painful break-up, being passed over for a promotion, a recent health event, or a traumatic experience from the past that you can't let go. As a clinical psychologist for over 30 years, I have successfully helped my clients gain insight into themselves so that they can change behavior, reconnect to their resilience and make significant improvements in their lives and relationships.I work with individuals, couples and families. I tailor treatment to the client because everyone has their own life circumstances, set of strengths and weakness, and agenda for therapy.

Trauma, anxiety, grief, relationship difficulties, depression, and/or confusing emotional reactions may be some of the factors that contribute to your decision to start or return to therapy. While therapy can be a resource for improving well-being and supporting growth, I understand that it can also feel daunting getting started. I prioritize creating a safe and warm therapeutic environment that fosters self-awareness, self-compassion, and connection to your internal wisdom. By working collaboratively together, we can create a tailored approach to address the specific issues that you are currently struggling with.

The therapeutic process has the ability to transform. This happens through partnering together within a caring and empathic environment. We will then fully explore your thoughts, feelings and behavioral patterns that may not be serving you well. This results in new ways of thinking, feeling and being. We will work towards illuminating your understanding of what you truly want to create for your life.

I aim to empower and support you in becoming the best possible version of yourself. Someone you are proud to call “you”.

Therapeutic change requires a trusting relationship within which thoughts and feelings can be expressed and explored freely. As a seasoned therapist, I believe that the crises that bring us to the first therapy appointment can be the beginning of a process of self-exploration that leads to greater self-understanding and more effective problem solving. As we sit together, I help you reflect on what is going on in the present and how you got there. I pay close attention to patterns and themes that emerge and help you organize these so you can develop a narrative of your life that makes sense to you.

Second-guessing yourself is exhausting. It is a full-time job to constantly replay conversations or situations in your head, judging yourself and thinking, “if only I had done this,” “that was so stupid,” or “why couldn’t I do this right.” Mixing that with having trouble sleeping, questioning your identity or worth, and other responsibilities can make it difficult to get through the day. Little things that did not bother you one day could leave you feeling like you are spiraling out of control. You might have found some things that work to distract you, but in the end, the feelings come back, and you feel lost.

Deciding to attend therapy is not a form of weakness. It is the journey to self-care, love, forgiveness, and the beginning of stepping into your full self. I do not have an ideal client, as each individual encompasses unique experiences, skills, values, and goals. Each person’s therapeutic experience is personalized and unique to their wants and needs. I am happy you are here so we can build this experience together.

Women's Issues Therapists

How do you encourage a woman to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express concern and love for the person while framing therapy as a tool for improving their life. Offering specific examples of how an individual may be suffering, and what effects it has on them, should be done with compassion and with empathy. It may be useful to devise a game plan—breaking the process down into parts, such as finding a therapist, making appointments, and looking into insurance coverage.

How can women prepare for therapy?

Women can prepare for therapy by being willing to talk about their past experiences and their private thoughts. Before a session, an individual may want to reflect on how they’ve felt since the last session and what’s happened in their lives. Between sessions, it can be useful to write down notes about their reaction to a given event or how they felt at a particular time.

How long does therapy for women’s issues often last?

As with any type of therapy, sessions depend on the individual and the challenges they face. Therapy types like Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Prolonged exposure therapy (PET), and Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) can be brief, most often ranging from between 5 and 20 sessions. In some cases, such as for women with eating disorders, residential treatment may be recommended for an individual who is judged to be at high risk of self-harm. For any therapy, the duration will depend on the progress made and results realized.

How can women overcome stigma around specific challenges in order to seek therapy?

Women dealing with domestic abuse, sexual assault, eating disorders, and any other number of troubles may feel a stigma around seeking help. It’s important to remember that these issues are not uncommon and there is no shame in getting help for them. Therapy is confidential, and women can talk about their experiences without fear of judgment. Seeking therapy can be a courageous and liberating act, and an important step toward healing and recovery.
