I bring nearly 15 years of clinical experience working with individuals from varied backgrounds, in both the non-profit and private sectors, allowing for my work to be based in a global understanding of what makes people “tick”. I have paid particular attention to individuals seeking to address stressors related to daily life, challenges related to substance use /misuse or the impact of a loved ones use on you, as well as compassion fatigue, mood disorders, and relationship issues. I offer counseling to friends in platonic relationships looking to strengthen or navigate a friendship and invest in these meaningful relationships.

I specialize in working with young adults/adults struggling with anxiety, relationship issues, life transitions and substance use . When we are anxious and overwhelmed, it can cause us to feel disconnected from others. Feeling stuck and stressed can trigger self-doubt and poor decision-making, and this chips away at our self-esteem. Personal challenges have taught me that tough times can be an opportunity to gain wisdom and resiliency. I can help you identify the core issues that are negatively impacting you and deterring you from enjoying your life and achieving your goals.

I specialize in helping adults struggling with trauma, depression, anxiety, substance use issues, balancing life, career, and/or relationships get through those struggles.
You’re successful, accomplished, and maybe even an overachiever, yet you’re constantly in your head all the time, overthinking almost everything, second-guessing decisions, obsessing about small details, and possibly even “people-pleasing”. You might be living with a general, constant sense of unease or stress (“but what am I stressing about?”). You might even feel frequently overwhelmed, and the little things just add up emotionally. Even though you’re performing at work and/or school, these feelings are likely still getting in the way of you living your best life.

I help adults (18+) manage major life issues/transitions such as depression and anxiety; substance use ; medical illness (cancer and HIV); relationships; loss/grief; and job stress.
Hello. Thanks for reading about me. I’m a warm, down to earth psychologist with a passion for helping people. Staying present focused, we will center on keeping your hopes and dreams up front, while reducing distress in the context of a solid and genuine therapeutic relationship. We will work to enhance your understanding of the barriers that are keeping you from achieving your goals and learn skills to turn that understanding into strategies to better overcome them. While there is no quick fix to most problems, I use proven strategies (such as CBT and DBT) that will help you experience relief and progress relatively soon.

I have a special interest in substance use and the personal meanings it has for the individual.
It is difficult to acknowledge that something is bothering you, much less to take the courageous step of reaching out and beginning to talk about it with a virtual stranger. Within a safe space, therapy provides an opportunity to develop a unique relationship and discuss whatever brought you here. It is important to me to understand the significance of your particular feelings, thoughts, and beliefs. Together, we will hopefully come to understand the underlying sources of your concerns, as well as new aspects of yourself that were previously hidden from awareness.

I have many years of experience working with issues that focus on relationships, anxiety, depression, LGBTQ concerns, substance use and loss/grief.
Finding a therapist is an important step in helping to create the life you want. You may be wondering if you really need therapy but feel stuck. Unresolved issues keep getting in your way and/or a relationship needs repair. It has been a challenging 2+ years. You may be missing life as you have known it, or had hoped for; uncertain about the future and how to deal with family, friends, work/school. I have been successful in helping individuals deal with issues of anxiety, depression, trauma and loss by creating a safe space where listening, caring and feedback help to promote increased self-worth, understanding and growth.
