I recognize that seeking therapy means that you or a loved one have determined a need for connection beyond that of friends and family. Knowing how difficult and intimidating this outreach can be, as a psychologist I strive to establish a safe space where clients can speak freely and be listened to intently. The work we do together is about creating an alliance that allows you to delve into painful memories and face feelings that can be frightening or uncomfortable. We do this work in collaboration, so I can hear your stories, and create a meaningful relationship.

I have extensive training and experience working with children, families, and adults who are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship challenges, grief and loss, behavioral and educational issues, life and career transitions, family conflict, parenting, motherhood, pregnancy, emotional dysregulation, and divorce.

My work centers around connecting deeply with my clients, using warmth, empathy, respect, and sometimes humor to help ease the process. My goal is to build a genuine, honest, and productive therapeutic relationship.
