"Beginning therapy can be scary and intimidating, but also hopeful. Discussing your wishes and uncertainties in session can promote clarity and lead to positive changes in thinking and behavior that are necessary to improve circumstances and relationships. Action is required for positive life changes to occur. It isn't always easy figuring out what action to take or what changes to make. Therapy is a safe place to explore these thoughts and feelings. Small shifts can lead to large improvements in mood and relationships. Please reach out with questions or to schedule an initial consultation."

If you're feeling tired of "just surviving" I can help you build skills to effectively move forward in your life. Often times my clients will come in not knowing where to start but acknowledging that they feel "stuck". Coming in for your first session is a big step forward and a great start to healing."

"I have had training and experience in several types of therapy; psychodynamic, dream work, cognitive-behavioral, and mindfulness-based psychotherapy which uses meditation as a complement. Most of my clients are experiencing depression, anxiety or going through a life crisis/transition. I enjoy using books and readings to concretely extend the therapy to life outside the sessions. A special interest is working with writers to faciliate their creative process. And I find humor is very important in therapy as in life."
