The practice of being human is utterly challenging and incredibly complex. I offer empathetic support for individuals, couples, and families who frequently fall back into their own negative thought patterns and family dynamics. Using a mix of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Psychology, and a Family Systems approach, I can help you recognize and better understand how an individual action may affect yourself and others.

Seeing a counselor is about becoming more aware of yourself, your patterns of thinking, feeling, behaving, communicating, and taking charge of your life. Stress, discomfort, or even pain can be powerful motives for positive change. When we can find ways of bringing our strengths, weaknesses, honesty, and life experiences to develop insight, counseling can bring peace and help you work through your difficult life issues. Counseling is collaborative and we will work together to develop goals, as you are the expert on yourself and I will help you develop awareness with strategies to achieve those goals; enriching your life.

Welcome! I am currently accepting new clients and specialize in helping young adults and women reduce their symptoms of anxiety and depression. People come to see me when they are feeling overwhelmed and exhausted by their relentless self critic. They often use words like “stuck in a rut” and feel trapped by their negative thinking and downward spirals. Sometimes they are frozen "waiting for the other shoe to drop". They are looking for relief and skills to help manage their runaway thoughts and feelings, advocate for themselves, process grief, and ultimately improve their self confidence and self esteem.

Grief and trauma. When experienced, these can define us. But it doesn’t have to be that way. People are also shaped by their families and culture, their experiences, and the stories they create about themselves. I too have experienced grief and trauma and through our work together, I will help you find your voice and create a new narrative – one of empowerment and self-acceptance.

Welcome! As a psychologist and psychoanalyst, I believe that developing a deeper understanding about our current and past experiences within a supportive therapeutic relationship leads to developing more meaningful, clear, and satisfying lives. In psychoanalytic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis, the focus is not just on alleviating symptoms, but on understanding and working through beliefs, feelings, desires, conflicts and fears that operate out of awareness and impact current difficulties. This is a collaborative process where we work to explore and change repetitive patterns that leave you feeling lost, stuck, and unfulfilled.
