I know life can be very difficult sometimes and even the most functional or "successful" people may benefit from therapy. I am a seasoned psychologist who understands and can help with the difficulties we can all face, such as mood and anxiety struggles, sense of self or self-esteem issues, relationship concerns, school, job, and career challenges, trauma and grief issues, and/or the existential challenges (life purpose, deep loneliness, etc.) we can all face as humans. I am dedicated to work compassionately and effectively with adolescents and adults, be it via individual therapy, group therapy or family therapy.

Are you feeling depressed, anxious or isolated? I work with youth, adults and families dealing with these and other stressors. As we all navigate the "new norm" of pandemic social distancing and distance learning, it may be more difficult pay attention to our mental health needs. It can be hard for us adults but, also has taken a toll on our families/children as they have little to no time to socialize or spend with their friends. There is so much uncertainty too. It is causing our families a lot of stress. Plus , the isolation from COVID-19 is causing depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts in youth.

At times, we all struggle with the inevitable trials of being human. You may be a parent or partner in a significant relationship struggling with connection, and in need of both practical and emotional support. At times, feelings of anxiety, apathy, and depression arise, and feelings of disconnection and loneliness can take hold. For others, we may be at a crossroads in our life, brought about by divorce, relocation, caregiving for a loved one, or a desire to have a bigger impact in our communities and the world. We may be asking ourselves BIG questions, “what’s next”, “what should I do”, and “what do I want from life”.

Self-Harming (Cutting) Therapists
Self-harm (SH) or deliberate self-harm (DSH) is the deliberate infliction of damage to your own body. It includes cutting, burning, scratching, banging or hitting yourself, interfering with wound healing, and the ingestion of toxic substances or objects. While self injury (SI) can look like suicide, it's not; most people who mutilate themselves do it as a way to regulate mood. People who hurt themselves in this way may be motivated by a need to distract themselves from inner turmoil, or to quickly release anxiety that builds due to an inability to express intense emotions.
