About

As Dr. Irvin D. Yalom says, client and therapist are "fellow travelers;" we explore your journey together. I travel best with people who are working towards happier & healthier personal, romantic, professional, and sexual relationships. This includes people who may be experiencing burnout, figuring out their next move, or experiencing a major life transition.
As a relational therapist, we will discuss your relationship to others as well as your relationship to yourself. Your hopes and goals for yourself and the relationships in your life guide us in our time together. We will explore the parts of ourselves that may not feel good, how those parts help us, and how those parts could help us better.
Starting therapy can be scary and anxiety-inducing even for those who have been in therapy before. I offer a free 15-minute consultation so that we can discuss how we would spend our time together and what your goals, fears, and expectations are for therapy. We'll take it at a speed best for you.
