With 30 years of experience as a therapist, I have served as a supervisor and mentor for other therapists for a number of years.
You deserve so much credit for taking this important step toward making things better in life, and finding the right therapist is such a great place to start. I provide a safe, warm, highly collaborative, and nonjudgmental space to help you find your best way to cope with challenges, and become the greatest version of you. Clients have often expressed surprise at what they've learned about themselves in our sessions, and remark on how comfortable they feel to talk about very difficult things. My specialties include problems with anxiety, depression, stress, grief, trauma, relationships, life transitions, and health/medical issues.

**Please note, I am currently full. Anticipated openings Jan 2022**. "The world knows half of me" is a statement I often hear from my clients. People access therapy because there is a significant difference between what they present to the world and how they feel inside. This internal tension can manifest in feeling tired all the time, feeling detached or stuck, holding in anger, and having a skewed sense of responsibility (feeling burdened with a great deal of responsibility). This internal tension also can show up in behaviors such as overeating, overdrinking and working too much.

A lot of thought can go into choosing a therapist for you or your family member. Therapy starts with a unique personal relationship that has appropriate professional boundaries and allows you to explore your present dilemma and its relationship to your inner life. With children I use play and talk. With older adolescents and adults therapy is primarily verbal but it is always important to keep a sense of playful exploration even when facing difficult or painful issues. If this approach sounds right for you contact me to set up an initial visit. I am only working virtually via Zoom and no longer working with children under 12.

My goal as a therapist is to collaborate with my clients to make the changes they are seeking in their mood, their self-understanding, their patterns of behavior, and their relationships.
