"Therapy is the process of coming to a deeper understanding of ourselves and how we approach the world while contained in the therapeutic relationship. I aim to create a safe, compassionate, and collaborative space to explore why patterns of thinking and interacting have become painful. In my experience, this process leads to improved relationships and communication, greater confidence and enjoyment in life, relief from feeling stuck, strengthened coping skills to manage life stressors, and progress towards one's inherent potential to thrive.

"To be honest, you probably don't actually NEED therapy. Things are going pretty well for the most part. You're slaying at work. You have fulfilling friendships. You're getting comfortable outside of your comfort zone. When you feel sad or anxious, your coping skills are pretty solid. And still . . . You want to level up. You're going through a life change, which you know will make you happy soon, but currently feels like being hit by a truck of mixed emotions. You want a fresh perspective on your relationship. You wonder about your doubts, your dreams, and the beautiful messes that make you you. And I'm so glad! "

"Aren’t emotions the worst? You're chugging along in your routine that includes all the things you’re supposed to do to be healthy, happy and successful, and then boom! Overwhelming anger or despair pops up out of nowhere and knocks you on your ass, and despite your efforts, there is nothing you can do to stop it. You are extremely intelligent, highly disciplined; you don’t need any more self-care tips. What you do need is someone there when you feel out of control, who won’t be intimidated by how deeply you feel and who in fact relishes the opportunity to walk with you on this terrifying and exhilarating journey of being human."

"I have 30 years experience in individual therapy with adolescents and adults. My approach is active and supportive - we will work together to clarify the changes you want and understand what causes your difficulties. Sometimes this involves exploring current situations and relationships; sometimes it means exploring aspects of your identity and how you feel about yourself. Sometimes a look at past relationships, family experiences, and early development can help to identify attachment patterns that are problematic. During this process we will support and develop your strengths and skills and discover what steps you can take. "
