About

Welcome! Looking for a therapist can be daunting. I applaud you for taking steps to help yourself. My clients typically come to me because they are suffering from high levels of stress or anxiety. They feel overwhelmed and panicky, are not able to stop worrying, or feel irritable and angry. Often they are puzzled by the intensity of their own emotional responses and they blame themselves for “overreacting”. Sounds familiar? There is nothing wrong with you. Your past memories, likely traumatic ones, may be intensifying your responses.
Healing can start when you understand why your brain reacts to the world the way it does. I will support you in this empowering journey of regaining power over your life, using evidence-based techniques and best practices.
I work with adult individuals and couples of all backgrounds. Please contact me if you have questions or you want to arrange an initial free consultation.
