About

Welcome! Searching for a therapist can feel overwhelming, and I am happy you are taking the first steps. Whether navigating difficult relationships or learning how to better manage stress and anxiety, I am passionate about helping others create meaningful and lasting positive change in their lives. Life transitions of all kinds are a special area of interest for me, particularly around the individual experience of divorce or separation. I have also worked extensively with adolescents, and enjoy the challenges and changes that are unique to this stage of life.
For therapy to be effective, there needs to be a good fit between therapist and client. My approach is compassionate, curious and direct.  Collaboration, connection, introspection, and a bit of challenge are all a part of the therapeutic process, and when appropriate, I use humor and cultivate optimism.
My goal is to create a warm and supportive environment that promotes growth and learning through a deeper understanding of how one’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are connected to and affect the relationship to oneself, others, and the world. I encourage you to reach out to me for a free phone consultation. I look forward to hearing from you!
