With an Emotionally Focused approach, I help couples improve communication and deepen connection.
Sometimes life gets heavy. You can end up feeling unmotivated, overwhelmed, and alone. When you feel anxious or depressed, you want relief. I can understand and support you. I want you to know it can get better! Working together can be the start of living the life you want. My goal is to get to know you (or you and your partner), provide compassion, and a safe space where we can work together to reach your goals. Reaching out is the beginning of your path to well-being.

A graduate of Temple University, I have been a licensed psychologist since 1996. I work with a wide variety of clients and presenting problems including anxiety, depression, stress, grief and loss. I have specific expertise in the areas of early trauma, childhood and adolescent issues, parenting and chronic stress. Throughout my experience I have witnessed remarkable healing and a return to a sense of wholeness and aliveness that comes with support through honest and gentle exploration, reflection and self-awareness. The results often manifest in improved relationships, judgment and clarity.

Are you looking for a therapist for your child or adolescent because they seem down, anxious, or having trouble managing relationships or stress? Being a kid right now is so challenging, and having additional support from a therapist can be invaluable! Maybe you are looking for help for yourself. Maybe you are a parent struggling in that role. Or, maybe you are trying to heal your own wounds from experiences you had early on in life. Maybe you'd like to heal so you can feel better, more present, and less anxious in your here and now.

Psychotherapy helps individuals, couples, and families develop skills to manage stress effectively and work through challenging life circumstances. I utilize an individualized approach based on each person's needs, abilities, and interests using talk therapy and specific interventions that decrease nervous system dysregulation and anxiety. I focus on improving relationships by enhancing communication, conflict resolution skills, and emotional expression. Therapy also includes an exploration of patterns of behavior that lead to feeling "stuck", and increasing meaningful or purposeful behaviors that are more fulfilling.

Does your child often have meltdowns or emotional explosions? Are you constantly fighting and feel like your home is a battlefield? Is it hard to connect with your child and understand why they’re behaving the way that they are? My family-oriented and collaborative approach to therapy may be a fit. I want to help you and your child decrease the amount of fighting that occurs and uncover why your child behaves the way they do. I believe that if families are more connected, our society becomes more connected, which means a more positive future. And a positive future is what you want for your child.

My approach to therapy is holistic, seeking to understand the whole individual beyond a diagnosis or symptoms. We each walk a unique path in this world, as a therapist, it is an honor to walk that path with you. Therapy is not about fixing or making whole, for we are not broken. Therapy is a path back to one’s true Self; it’s a supportive space to process and understand with kindness how the threads of our experiences are woven into the fabric of our lives. Sometimes, we need a supportive space to process our experiences in order to gain clarity and understanding, at other times we need tangible tools for navigating life’s stresses

Highly sensitive old soul or empath, you and I will explore more deeply together than in traditional talk therapy. You've likely tried psychotherapy before but have noticed that the work has either gone nowhere or taken you only so far, or you felt misunderstood. With an uncanny and intuitive ability to "get" people from so many walks of life, I will invite you to go beneath your thoughts, connect with your body at a safe pace, and gently access the root of of your emotional discomfort and hurts to facilitate noticeable shifts with each session.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
