About

Perhaps your relationships, career, or creative pursuits are not going as you would like. Challenges around identity and sense of self may be plaguing you. You may feel bogged down by feeling frustrated, unmotivated, anxious, overwhelmed, guilty, ashamed, or sad. Whatever your struggles, together we can help you better understand what’s going on and what may be getting in the way of change. I take as a basic premise that you are more than a collection of symptoms or a problem to be fixed and believe that you and what troubles you deserve our full attention and thorough exploration with the goal of long-term sustainable growth.
I am dedicated to working with people of diverse backgrounds, experiences and identities, and am well-versed particularly in work with creatives, ex-pats, transcultural couples, adult children of immigrants and third culture kids, bi-racial men and women, and queer-identified and non-binary individuals and their families.
Self-knowledge is good medicine. Therapy takes courage but can help you attain a sustainable sense of well-being and a freer and more satisfying life. I look forward to hearing from you. I will bring to our work substantive training, many years of practice, patience, empathy, curiosity, and reliability.
