About

At some point during the complex journey of life we all experience stuck points, emotional suffering, and sometimes an emotional crisis. It my deeply held belief, however, that we all have the innate ability to recover, heal and thrive. Providing an environment that facilitates healing and resilience is tremendously life-affirming work. I trust that each one of us has tremendous wisdom and strength. In partnership, we identify growth areas, goals, and strategies. Although it is essential that therapy is nurturing and nourishing, it is also hard work. I admire anyone who has the courage to push themselves out of their comfort zones.
I have been doing individual, couples, family and group therapy since 1995 and have learned a lot along the way. I have a Masters degree in GeneralPsychology and a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology. I utilize many modalities to facilitate healing including psychodynamic, process-experiential, cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavioral, narrative, interpersonal, and expressive approaches.
I draw from all of those modalities as I customize my approach based on each client's individual needs and preferences. I have experience working with a wide range of challenges including depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, marital and family challenges, psychosis, interpersonal challenges, substance use disorders, and personality disorders.
