My speciality is working with people of all ages that are highly sensitive, empathic, and intuitive. They usually know who they are, but keep it quiet in order not to stand out, but to fit in with social situations. Highly sensitive people are like sponges. They absorb other people's energies and are not sure what to do with it. They may have a sixth sense that has been undervalued or they don't know how to use it both in their professional and personal lives. What they do know is how it has been effecting their life and how tiring it is.

Better is possible. Crises, life transitions, and losses can bring new triggers to old traumas. You may find yourself struggling with feelings that are debilitating, even immobilizing. Anxiety, sadness, and overwhelm can leave you feeling unable cope in healthy, appropriate ways. But it can get better, and you don't have to go at it alone. Therapy is an invitation to attend to your feelings and thoughts. In the deep reflection that therapy allows, you can become aware of the choices hidden behind the pain and confusion. You can gain reconnection to your core, essential self. You can move towards recovery and wholeness.

I have seen how the powerful process of psychotherapy helps people cope with life's challenges and find inner strength. Therapy reduces suffering and promotes resilience. Additionally it helps improve communication and understanding in relationships. Effective psychotherapy elicits change and guides people toward living more authentically. I realize that people often seek help at their most vulnerable times. I am aware of of this as I guide my clients toward a better understanding of themselves and their inner world, thereby allowing for emotional growth, peace and the attainment of personal goals.

If you are struggling with anxiety, stress, feelings of sadness, or past trauma, you are not alone. Sometimes you need some extra support to get back on track. I believe in empowering you or your teen/child with self-knowledge, self-regulation and supportive resources to feel better. In most situations you will be done with weekly therapy in 4-6 months or less, and then you can have "tune up" sessions as needed. Your first phone session is free! As a teacher of clinicians, I am up to date on cutting edge treatment and care. I am also an educational advocate if you need help with navigating the educational system.

I am passionate about helping a child or teen struggling to manage emotional or behavioral disturbances. They may be struggling with depression or anxiety that comes as a result of trauma or significant loss, or that arises out of every day pressure to do well in school or extracurriculars. Growing up comes with growing pains, and therapy is no different. I want my clients (and their families) to be motivated to participate and engage in sessions, and practice learned skills in their home, school, and community. I hope my clients develop self confidence and begin to take ownership over treatment, and over their mental health.

Your overall wellness extends beyond your physical health and, by taking this first step to find a therapist, you are showing yourself love and compassion. Thank you for making your emotional and mental well-being a priority. Change takes time, is difficult, and can be scary but is ultimately, liberating and transformative. When we make changes in our lives, we open ourselves up to growth and new possibilities. Ghandi believed “the future depends on what you do today.” I believe each of us can overcome the obstacles that impact our relationships, happiness, quality of life, and keep us from being our most authentic selves.

Making the choice to come to therapy requires an incredible amount of courage. From the first interaction I hope to convey my deep respect for choosing to look at the parts of ourselves that are not working. Exploring what has you stuck can seem daunting and frustrating. My viewpoint of clients, is that they are strong, capable and willing to engage with themselves from a perspective of learning and growth. Therapy allows for us to heal in the context of a relationship, allowing for the creation of new narratives about our ability to trust, connect, and give and receive care.
