I specialize in working with female and male survivors of neglect, physical, emotional, or sexual abuse, and traumatic loss.
I am a licensed clinical social worker/outpatient clinician with 15 years of mental health experience. I draw from a variety of theoretical orientations, including psychodynamic (insight oriented), cognitive-behavioral (skills development) and relational treatment approaches, but the needs of my clients dictate the specific approaches I employ in our work. Psychotherapy is useful to manage transitions, stresses, and crises. It can also provide a safe and supportive context to address longstanding struggles with depression, anxiety, or other issues. While some people enter therapy in crisis, others use it to optimize their creation of an authentic and meaningful life.

All human beings have within themselves the capacity for living happy, meaningful lives. We are meant to thrive, however it is quite common for distressing life experiences to interfere with our natural way of being. Sometimes obstacles are known to us, but have been resistant to change. Others remain hidden, but what we do notice clearly are psychological and emotional symptoms of distress (depression, fear and anxiety, emotional reactivity, irritability, addictions, etc.). These symptoms can significantly impact our quality of life, and almost always cause problems in relationships.

Welcome! Meaningful change and lasting healing happen through the co-creation of safe therapeutic spaces. Together, we can develop your capacity not only to feel better, but to be healthier. Understanding yourself is a powerful source of transformation and development. However, insight alone is not always enough to create psychological healing. I work with people to generate deep insight but also to create a new way of being and feeling in the world. For these purposes, I often incorporate both experiential and mind/brain/body therapies.

The challenges, difficulties, or traumas we encounter in life can make us feel anxious, depressed, vulnerable, or even overwhelmed. Psychotherapy begins with finding someone you can trust, not only to lend a compassionate ear, but also where you can reflect and discuss openly your thoughts, feelings, and actions. I believe in working collaboratively, interactively, and respectfully to create a safe space. By exploring how your ways of coping may have developed and what they may serve, we can help you discover more varied ways of responding to life's struggles, enabling you to feel more hopeful and empowered.

Together, we explore the root of current feelings that led things astray. We can gain insight into self-awareness, understand our behavioral patterns, build resilience, and develop better coping mechanisms. Doing so empowers us to reach emotional maturity and enable more fulfilling relationships.
