My favorite clients to work with are children and teens ages 5 to 18 as well as young adults ages 19 - 35. I have an innate ability to connect and communicate with children and teens while at the same time being able to form a relationship with their parents to assist in the work they are doing in therapy. I work to create a safe, non-judgmental space that allows clients to be themselves. As a therapist, I show up authentically and establish a real connection using empathy, creativity, and humor.

In therapy, we look to grow, and we seek help with real-life problems. I enjoy working with both this “growth” therapy as well as with those seeking relief. I enjoy working with clients who struggle with unhappiness, anxiety, addiction, or loneliness. I work with new parents who struggle with the challenge of having a child and/or being working parents. I have strong commitment to serving women who are finding their voice, to the LBGT community and minorities. I am also well versed with clients who are struggling with grief and loss. I enjoy creating a safe place to talk for women, those who feel excluded, and to heal from trauma.

You want to live your adult life as an adult. Many of us struggle within the familiar loops that were set up with our best intentions, except often the parts of us in play formed in our childhood or adolescence. Do you want the adolescent you to be at the helm of your life or the adult you? With over 18 years in practice, I have come to realize that the journey one embarks on when entering therapy is an exceedingly personal and honorable one. As such, I work very hard to be fully engaged in each and every session to help you realign with the best in you as you navigate your life.

I also encourage people who are not in crisis but interested in improving the quality of their life and to enhance their overall well being. Besides being in private practice I have also worked in inpatient and outpatient psychiatric settings. I believe in using an eclectic approach, with a multitude of modalities, to help people, in a safe setting, clarify their issues, gain greater insight and assist them in finding their own solutions and coping skills. Most of my clients report feeling better in a short time.

I take pride as a psychologist in the area of personal growth when dealing with life's challenges. This involves meeting your needs and starting where you are now and going from there. I work collaboratively in order for you to get to a 'better' place. I have accumulated a wealth of experience helping others combat challenges of not being able to have children by traditional means. I worked with patients exploring 'good' solutions to this heart-rending process. My goal involves helping individuals deal with the normal and not so normal life challenges of depression, self-esteem, anxiety, relationships, children, parents, and more.

Somatic work is ideal for those who are wishing to explore topics around sexuality or gender, seeking relief from anxiety or freedom from depression. My work is thorough, progressive and satisfying. Some parts of our psyches are only accessible through the body and paying attention to the body brings deeper understanding and change.
