About

In understanding how our histories and present circumstances affect us, we cultivate empathy for ourselves and those around us. The past few years have brought multiple global and local crises we have had to navigate through collectively. Whether you or your child are personally working through conflictual relationships, painful past experiences or trauma, work/school stress, or problematic behaviors, our societal context can amplify these difficulties. Therapy illuminates the patterns we find ourselves in, and also provides ways of coping with the distress resulting from these patterns.
I work with individuals of all ages (adults, teens, children, and toddlers), and believe in the healing nature of a strong therapeutic relationship. I will work to facilitate growth in your or your child’s natural areas of strength, while also deepening your understanding of what causes pain.
My approach is collaborative and individualized, and includes relational psychodynamic techniques, humor, metaphor, CBT techniques, and/or mindfulness. With children I utilize play therapy (even on video!), mindfulness, as well as behavioral methods. I look forward to hearing from you, and to learn about how we can work together.
