I have experience working in community mental health, university counseling, adult psychiatric inpatient and outpatient, private practice, disability determination services of State government, teaching graduate level clinical psychology courses, and formal training in psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis.
Sometimes personal thoughts and feelings about life can be upsetting, disturbing, seem incomprehensible or even unchangeable. Over time these kinds of experiences can erode our personal sense of vitality, meaningfulness, freedom, and overall wellbeing. Although we know that some suffering is a normal part of life, suffering needlessly or endlessly simply does not have to be. In my office I provide a quiet, comfortable, respectful, and very confidential atmosphere.

I am a doctoral level psychologist with expertise in ACT and Psychodynamic therapies.
We want to spend more time with our friends than our enemies, but so many of us treat ourselves unkindly. Without noticing, we become better critics than companions. I work with ambitious, high-achieving people, but the dark side of success is often self-criticism. I help my clients to love themselves, to wonder at their lives, to act with patience, compassion, and self-respect. When we treat ourselves fairly, our successes start to mean something. We begin to feel satisfied. Meanwhile, our relationships get stronger, opportunities present themselves, and life becomes fun.

I utilize a variety of techniques to explore counseling concerns including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Psychodynamic Therapy and Relational Therapy.
I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the tool that starts healing. My initial goal for my clients is that they feel comfortable and cared for. I prioritize the therapeutic relationship by bringing my genuine self to treatment, using open communication, and sharing in laughter and check ins as a way to help make the environment feel warm and safe. Once you feel safe, the work can begin. I enjoy working with women and families who are experiencing issues with mental health, substance use, life transitions or trauma. I also enjoy working women who are prepartum and postpartum as they begin their journey into motherhood.

I combine short-term, skill-based interventions with longer-term psychodynamic or insight-oriented approaches so that you can start making progress towards your goals during our first session.
We all want to experience happiness and satisfaction in our lives. I believe that most people have a theory about themselves and their problems, but have struggled to make or sustain progress on their own. That is where having a therapist can be tremendously helpful and where I can provide support and expertise to help you reach your goals. I have been successful in helping people develop healthy coping strategies, and I coach people to try out new behaviors in their daily lives. I have a calm, yet attentive therapeutic style and I strive to empower my clients to experience greater confidence and agency.

My individual and couples work is informed by psychodynamic , relational, and trauma-focused modalities, with a focus on topics surrounding anxiety & depression, relationships, sex, sexuality, gender identity, and substance use.
My ten years of experience working with LGBTQ people and clients of various backgrounds in mental health settings has shown me that personal change occurs best through relationships based on trust, and a common purpose. Relationships where you are encouraged to say what’s on your mind, be challenged, take risks, and gain new insights. In our sessions, I will focus on honoring your autonomy as we work towards your goals for therapy. My intention is not to teach you a “correct way to live" but instead to learn what already works for you and help create a space to explore yourself further leading to new possibilities for your life.

I utilize an integrative model, drawing from relational, psychodynamic , cognitive behavioral, EMDR, and attachment based approaches.
Many find themselves at a point in their lives where external support is necessary to navigate life's challenges. My clients seek therapy for a variety of reasons. Some may come to therapy to deal with a specific struggle, such as anxiety or depression, while others initiate therapy during a difficult life transition. Even positive transitions, such as getting a new job or starting a new relationship can be stressful. Together, we will merge our resources to address these challenges in a safe environment by exploring patterns, processing events from the past, and creating plans for change in the future.

Now accepting new clients. Whether you have been thinking about coming to therapy recently or for a while, chances are there is something going on that is prompting you to do so. Perhaps it is a stressful job or relationship; or you may be struggling with anxiety or depression. Often, what may seem to be the "problem" on the surface is actually related to something on a deeper level. As your therapist, I will work with you to try and understand what this deeper level is about.

Are anxious or depressed feelings interfering with work and relationships? Are marital or sexual problems getting you down? If you are ready to transform your life, I can help. For 40+ years, I've successfully used cognitive-dynamic therapy to guide people to practical strategies for solving problems and to explore their deeper conflicts. Life is a dramatic journey and often a caring guide along the way is needed to find your optimal zone. I specialize in anxiety and mood disorders, as well as sexual dysfunctions and sex addictions. I've recently written a book on a spiritual approach to weight loss.

Life can be full of surprises, not all of them happy. There may be times when, quite out of the blue, you feel anxious, depressed, or just plain stuck. Even in the midst of personal, financial and professional success, you might still find you are struggling emotionally, interiorly questioning, wondering whether all the energy and time you have put into your life is really paying off. Often, you may not know what exactly is troubling you and yet feel quite certain that something is not quite right inside. When it feels this way, therapy can help.

Being an adult is hard, especially for women. Having to make difficult decisions about your career, relationships, future, process things about your past, or set boundaries with those around you -- can feel seemingly impossible. Balancing a career, household, and/or a relationship can be taxing, anxiety provoking, draining, and leave you feeling completely depleted. But these aren't impossible things to tackle, and there is hope for a better, more peaceful, balanced you. You are only one step away from beginning a journey to better take care of yourself. And it starts here.
