In therapy, I offer a warm, relational, strength-based approach to counseling, believing whole-heartedly that each story is precious and meant to be heard and regarded. I enjoy supporting children, teens, families and adults in developing positive ways to interact with one another and the world around them. My training is diverse and eclectic. ~~ Please note that, although it's not ideal, at this time I'm offering teletherapy sessions until life returns to normal. Families have still found it to be helpful (and also convenient).

I want to acknowledge that both choosing to take part in psychotherapy and finding a good therapist can be daunting experiences. Compounding these factors, we find ourselves in a chaotic and unsettling time where many feel even more isolated and dysregulated than ever before. You're not alone. I encourage you to trust the process and where it takes you. You may have a clear idea of what symptoms you seek to address, or perhaps you don't know exactly why you're seeking therapy but feel an unexplainable draw towards it. Whatever the case, your choice to pursue psychotherapy is an important step in the right direction.

Relationships are the foundation of our lives. Family relationships, romantic relationships, parent/child relationships. These are the connections that make our lives joyful and full. At other times they can be stressful, unstable and uncertain. Navigating through valuable relationships can be confusing and scary at times. It is often hard to understand why the most important people in our lives are the people we struggle most to connect with.

You're struggling to control the negative storyteller in your mind. You imagine catastrophic scenarios linked to everyday moments, actively planning for how people will respond to what you say or do. That inner narrative is draining your mental energy, protecting against something that isn't going to happen. The easy option is to put up walls, blocking people from being able to hurt you. But that only makes you more fearful and lonely. What if you could find a way to have healthy boundaries that allow people to connect with you? A way to relate that feels wonderful?

Even when life throws us some curveballs (as it often will), if our most important relationships are strong and healthy, we can handle the challenges that come our way. My work focuses on helping children, teens, parents and couples strengthen their relationships and create a family life that is a safe haven for everyone. I work with children and teens alongside parents to solve behavioral problems, using attachment theory.

The journey through the ever-changing stages of life can at times be difficult and overwhelming. When we experience loneliness, depression, fear, or disconnection, our relationships to others and to our true selves can become closed off, leaving us feeling isolated and in pain.
