Performance is a part of our daily lives. We want to perform well and at a high level, though it is common for challenges to arise that interfere with optimal performance. Sometimes, individuals can struggle with their performance due to the inherent difficulty of being able to identify and work through these challenges. Other times, individuals are able to perform quite well, and yet they want to see if they are capable of more. In either scenario, my aim is to help individuals discover their capabilities and be able to perform at a level that brings them great joy.

The pandemic has challenged us to think and problem solve in new ways. For some people this is an exciting time of change and possibilities. But for others, the "surge capacity" for repeated adaptation can feel exhausting. If you're considering therapy now, chances are you've already tried some things on your own. Whether you're looking to "reinvent" yourself going forward, or to re-evaluate your life choices and relationships, replenishing your toolbox with new knowledge, insights, and relational skills is essential for building and sustaining confidence and motivation through times of transition..
Psychology for YOU. If you are experiencing a problem or something troubles you in your mind, this is the moment to address it. The opportunity for you to express yourself and receive professional attention is in your hands now. If we work together we can reach your goals. “Don't be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.” ― Roy T. Bennett
Working with individuals who are aware that they need support to reconcile their many facets is a passion of mine. Adjusting to parenthood, exploring race, class, spirituality or issues of sexuality, or struggling to balance work with all of the other stressors of life -- including unresolved traumas that you were forced to ignore in order to function -- deserves attention. Clients do not need to understand all the feelings they have or why they have them to begin this journey. They just have to want the better life they have always deserved. Third Culture Kids and micro-minorities welcome. We will create context.

My role in working with my clients is assisting them with moving forward, finding new solutions or courses of action, and helping them build their toolbox so that they can cope more productively.
I have enjoyed working as a clinician since May 1996. My favorite delight is to see people grow and become empowered to be the absolute best they can possibly be!
