It is often not easy to be human. Development is an ongoing process that presents unique challenges throughout the lifespan. From the beginning of life, when developmental tasks involve regulating body states and forming primary attachments, to later when goals shift to negotiating romantic relationships, possibly starting a family, and balancing career and family goals, it can be hard to negotiate these challenges. Psychotherapy can ease the distress that can accompany life changes, allowing people reach their potential.

The choice to start psychotherapy, though difficult, can also prove exciting in that it offers the opportunity to heal, instill hope, and improve an understanding of oneself and others. My clients tell me that I possess a calm and warm demeanor and that I make them feel heard and not judged. I provide a safe and respectful space for individuals and families to process their experiences. Together, clients and I can explore concerns, collaborate to find solutions, and discover ways to better address and cope with new stressors if and when they arise.

I see therapy as a place to practice courage and honesty, with the goal of creating more joy, humor, flexibility, and play in one's life, relationships, and work. I often see individuals dealing with complex issues such as depression, grief/loss, anxiety, recovery from trauma/abuse or neglect, postpartum or parenting issues, child emotional or behavioral concerns, relationship conflicts, or identity/life transitions. My approach is collaborative, empathic, and interactive, creating an environment in which to help you better understand, relate to, and address the challenges you are experiencing.

I became a therapist later than most and I bring a wealth of life experience to my work. A lesson I have learned is that life throws us curve balls. We often find ourselves in unexpected places, which can be confusing, humbling, heart breaking and sometimes shaming. Life has shaped me as a therapist and has also directed my areas of interest. These include; - trauma, couples, family work, infertility, IVF, divorcing families, grief and loss, social justice and personal empowerment.

If you are here, I believe you can see, even if not clearly, that there are other - better - possibilities for you. I do not think of psychotherapy as the process of eliminating illness, rather that of creating health. Receiving a diagnosis may provide a measure of relief, but in the end it is just a description of symptoms. The real work, in my mind, is that of discovering your true potential and actualizing it. I consider it an honor and privilege to be invited as guide on such a journey.
