I am a firm believer in encouraging positivity, bolstering self-efficacy, and cultivating independence in others. My typical client is a child, adolescent, or young adult (age 3 to 29) who may be struggling academically, socially, or with developing effective emotional coping skills. Often, the individuals I see have difficulty with attention, concentration, organization, and with meeting the daily demands required of them at school. I also offer much support to parents who may be frustrated with their attempts at connecting with their kids and who are in need of guidance relating to discipline techniques and behavior management.

Congratulations! You’ve made the courageous decision to search for something new. My approach to psychotherapy is experiential and relational. I believe that we hold within us everything we need for recovery and expansion and that a genuine and non-judgmental therapeutic relationship offers the context for healing, exploration, and growth. My clients describe feeling gotten and empowered by me. Psychotherapy with me is like traditional talking therapy. And also quite different. We won’t just talk about the bad experiences you’ve had. We’ll also cultivate new ones and help you consolidate the "new you" that will slowly emerge.

I work with children, adolescents and adults in individual, couple, and family psychotherapy. Through a collaborative process, I help patients discover connections between problematic patterns of thinking and relating, and the ongoing challenges they face. These connections – between thoughts and feelings, past and present, internal experience and external situations – can help a person think in new ways, generating possibilities for growth and change.

Living with chronic illness can feel overwhelming at times, whether you’re newly diagnosed or have been managing your illness for years. As a nurse-psychotherapist, I understand the grief, loneliness, fear, anger, shame, and vulnerability that may surface, often at unexpected moments. Yet managing life with chronic illness also presents tremendous opportunities for growth and insight, creativity and humor. Attention to the emotional aspects of illness and the body can lead in therapy to discovering new ways of caring for one's self, of moving through the world with more agency and joy, of being more genuinely, fully, with others.

The demands of modern life increasingly necessitate managing multiple roles and stressors, while also offering numerous ways to distract and numb ourselves through technology and other outlets. It is easy to become disconnected from our relationships and ourselves, and lose sight of our values and goals. I believe that psychotherapy provides a unique opportunity to slow down, examine emotional and behavioral patterns that may be ineffective, and make more conscious choices about how to live. My role as a therapist is to help you define your goals and facilitate a supportive and collaborative partnership that empowers you to achieve them.
