Navigating life's challenges requires a safe and trusting space. As a counselor, I deeply appreciate the courage it takes to open up and connect. In the heart of my practice lies a profound respect for the therapeutic relationship, which I believe serves as the cornerstone for healing. While working with children and adults in a variety of settings I have developed a passion for helping people navigate the ups of downs of life. Together, we'll explore difficult emotions, challenge self-limiting beliefs, and develop practical strategies to cope with life's difficulties.

Psychotherapy is a collaborative process; the therapist must be serious and respectful and possess a solid reservoir of knowledge about the human condition. The therapy-seeker must, in addition to wanting symptom relief, bring to the process his or her curiosity and some desire for increased self awareness. People come to psychotherapy in emotional turmoil and/or pain. While this is usually the first focus, quickly it will become important to try to understand one's personality style, one's relationship patterns and the roots of these patterns, one's thinking style and the characteristic way one goes about managing, deflecting or enacting emotional storms.

I DO NOT ACCEPT NEW CLIENTS. I maintain a short waiting list for the clients that were referred specifically to me. Please, continue looking. I cannot respond to the new inquiries. I understand how difficult it is to ask for help and how painful it could be to talk about things that are not working with a stranger. I feel honored every time my client opens up to me. I treat my clients with respect, kindness, and warmth. In my experience, therapeutic relationship is the foundation of the healing process and I work very hard to help my clients feel heard, understood, supported, and safe in my office.

Hello! Helping individuals to heal from their pasts and grow into the best version of themselves is something I truly love. Today, we know that trauma settles into our brains and bodies in ways that time cannot fully heal (despite the old adage, “time heals everything”) . Would you like to be more present in your daily life, have a healthier relationship to yourself and others? I would love to work together to help you heal from your past, so that you can live life more fully today.

I welcome your interest in psychotherapy or psychoanalysis. In addition to being a psychologist, I am also a Jungian Psychoanalyst. I address a wide variety of issues and problems with adults. This range includes: relationships, job stress, and issues of more depth such as depression, anxiety, anger, and conflicts around spirituality and/or trauma. I imagine you are considering or seeking someone to talk with because of some dissatisfaction in your life. We begin by exploring the problem(s) you currently experience. This inevitably leads us to uncovering and exploring the hidden maladaptive patterns in your life.

Accepting new clients! Are you finding you and your partner arguing often, living as roommates, walking on eggshells, or all of the above? This can be very lonely & feel like a great love lost. Avoiding the root of these conflicts can continue negative cycles & lead to resentment, and relationship exhaustion. I use the "gold standard" of couples therapy to help couples understand their pattern of interaction, become aware of how to change it, and begin to cradle each other in conflict instead of turning away.

You want to feel better and improve your relationships, but it’s hard to imagine how you can get there. EMDR can be life-changing to help you reconnect with yourself and process past events so you can feel lighter and live more in the present.

Trauma comes in many forms. I believe regardless of what your trauma, it is incredibly important that it be addressed and processed. Like an infection, untreated trauma can fester into depression, anxiety, substance abuse, or a large number of other conditions. Trauma impacts individuals of all ages, genders, and races. I have experience working with a diverse population of clients. I also have experience working with clients who are employed as first responders or healthcare workers.
