I strive to help people become their own authority, which may have been compromised by unhealthy relationships, substance abuse, depression, and anxiety. I focus on the individual's relationship with themselves, fostering an understanding and compassion towards personal strengths and vulnerabilities. I believe it is imperative to address underlying issues with out judgment or shame, so that we can heal parts of the self that are no longer serving us. My clinical training is in psychodynamic therapy, and I tend to gravitate towards an attachment based and humanistic approach.

Are you an empath, healer, or Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)? Are you a female-identifying person in their 30’s – 50’s? Do you work in the helping and creative professions and are looking to add more alignment and fulfillment to your life and/or career? Are you ready to step up to the next level in your career, life, or relationship? But, the fear of being seen has been holding you back. The fear of criticism and what others think about you? Do people ever tell you you’re too sensitive? On some level you know it’s true, but you don’t know what to do about it. Do you struggle with feelings of being ‘good enough’ or ‘doing enough’?

You may be feeling sad, anxious, overwhelmed, or confused. You may be experiencing a difficult life transition or feel that something is missing in your life. It is important to find a therapist with whom you have a good fit, a feeling that your therapist "gets" you in order to develop the trust necessary in a therapeutic relationship. I have over 35 years of experience helping people in a safe, non-judgmental environment. It is through feeling understood that we come to understand ourselves better.

I love "pushy parents," who feel as though they live in IEP meetings, and on the phone with healthcare providers. I love parents who push for their children, because who else will? Similarly, I love working with young people who have "behavioral problems," "worry too much," have "big emotions," or struggle socially. My clients are typically too smart, too creative and under-appreciated. Parents who come to my office often wonder: a) "will this help?" b) "will you understand my child?" and "c) if you understand my kid, will you then judge me?" My answers are a) "yes. It can even be fun" b) "that's my main goal" c) "not a chance."

In these times of uncertainty, I am here to help. I have years of experience and am able to work with you virtually. Call me! Listening for what is not said is often as important as what is said. No one therapeutic approach suits every client's need, so I tailor my approach based on what's best for the individual. My success with sober clients and others suffering from addictive disorders comes from my willingness to help them navigate the realities of life. Sometimes psychotherapy alone cannot cure mood disorders, just as drugs for depression and anxiety are less effective without concurrent psychotherapy.

Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum.
