There is a saying, "In youth, we run into difficulties. In old age, difficulties run into us." Sometimes life can be really hard. Even the strongest individual may need support and guidance in dealing with unexpected circumstances, or in managing conflict and personal challenges. I believe that through safe, reassuring, and compassionate therapy, clients can work through any struggle, connect to their best authentic selves, and achieve long-term growth and personal transformation.

Life is often challenging and can leave us feeling anxious, depressed, or emotionally overwhelmed. Therapy provides an opportunity to address and work through the difficulties we face so that we can lead a more satisfying and fulfilling life. A vital component of therapy is creating a safe and comfortable environment so that issues can be explored openly and honestly. I provide a collaborative and supportive environment through acceptance, compassion, and genuineness.

I feel fortunate to do the work that I do, to be trusted with a person's life story, their fears, their hopes, their wants and needs. I do not claim to be the expert on you. You are the expert on you. What I am expert at is helping you explore, discover, and move beyond those things that interfere with you being the best version of you, and how to move closer to making that truth your reality. Reaching out is the first step.

NOT TAKING NEW CLIENTS CURRENTLY, PLEASE CHECK AGAIN IN LATE OCTOBER We all experience sadness, anxiety, anger, and other negative emotions, but at a certain point, these emotions become more of a burden than we can bear, and can affect our normal functioning; our relationships, jobs, schoolwork, and personal lives as a whole can suffer. Starting therapy is a courageous step toward feeling better; making the choice to become vulnerable in front of another person in order to receive help may be one of the hardest things you ever do.

Emotional and physical trauma, when unresolved, can leave us feeling alone, misunderstood, disconnected and sometimes shamed. It can keep us from forming the relationships we seek and alienate us from the intimacy we might desire. In a non-judgmental way, I engage my clients to help them find meaning and growth through a combination of intellect and emotional presence. My approach is psychodynamic and focuses on attachment, a sex-positive viewpoint and self-acceptance. When working with couples, I use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).

I believe life experiences sometimes put us in a place where we need help to guide us through different aspects of our lives. Pain and suffering caused by the loss of a loved one; navigating the often troublesome path of childhood and adolescence; interpersonal difficulties between couples; fears, anger management and family dynamics are areas I specialize in treating in a warm, safe and comfortable environment. Also, I feel that early issues, loses and experiences help to define how a person makes choices in their lives as they mature. As a therapist, I want to help my clients discover ways to make their life more rewarding.

Though we often push through life’s challenges alone, the truth is, we don’t have to. In our time together, I hope to collaborate with you in identifying the patterns, thoughts, and feelings that may be blocking you from a happy relationship to yourself and others, even if it feels beyond words at this time.

You are here on this page because you have strength in you, you have desire in you and you have healing in you. You are the main character in your own life.
