My goal is to help those suffering from emotional or relationship problems, self-defeating patterns of behavior, and recurring periods of uncertainty or self-doubt. I also specialize in the treatment of treatment-resistant depression, anxiety-related disorders, personality disorders, and PMDD. My approach to therapy involves understanding how difficult experiences from our past can affect the way we feel and behave in the present. Our past experiences are often the reason we sometimes struggle with the same emotional and relationship problems throughout life. It is only through understanding our past struggles can we expect to achieve a lasting and meaningful change in the present.

I work with clients who deal with Anxiety, Depression, Adult ADHD, Addiction, Life Stressors, Gender Identity/LGBTQ+ issues, Borderline & Cluster B Personality Disorders.
You're not a cookie, and I am not a cookie-cutter therapist. Every person is unique, and my counseling approach is very much tailored to your specific needs. For most people, counseling may be a last resort, one final effort after they’ve tried everything else. Some worry that seeking therapy means they’ve failed; and for others, the idea of therapy is just plain scary or not the way they were “taught to deal with things”. Even so, the fact that you’re reading this means you want to take back control and begin creating the life you really want. Well, you’ve come to the right place!

I specialize in working with those who are struggling with: trauma, depression, suicidal ideation, anxiety & personality disorders.
I understand that people's lives are made up of various stories that shape one's perspective. No one person's background is the same thus, the approach to life will be different. Whether it's anxiety, depression, trauma, mood swings or "I just want to chat about life," I am here to listen. From the busy women trying to juggle it all to the men who feel the stress piling on, I can help you sort through the ups & downs of life. I also have a personal connection to the world of creatives who find themselves facing life as though there's never an "off switch." My experience as a SAG actress allows me to understand a performer.

I specialize in working with clients who are grappling with OCD, personality disorders, trauma, grief, anxiety, relationship issues, and ADHD.
Life can throw us some rough curveballs, and it's during these moments that we might find ourselves feeling overwhelmed, lost, or stuck. My passion lies in guiding clients through these lonely times, offering a warm and empathetic space where healing can begin. My existential counseling approach is rooted in the belief that every person is unique and deserves a tailored therapeutic experience. Instead of simply putting a bandage on your concerns, let’s find what is causing them and heal from the source. This counseling style stems from my favorite quote: "A fool pulls the leaves, a brute chops the trunk, but a sage pulls the roots".

Some highlights of my experience include treating trauma, depression, anxiety, substance abuse and addictive behaviors, and personality disorders.
My approach to therapy is based on getting to know people as individuals, and then tailoring treatment to meet their unique needs. I do not believe in a “one-size-fits-all” approach to treatment. I am also an avid believer in respecting the vulnerability and privacy that are key to developing a productive therapeutic alliance. I collaborate with patients to help them identify their treatment goals, then achieve those goals in the manner that is right for them.

With special training in high conflict personalities, I have seen a dramatic increase in clientele who are struggling with spouses, parents and bosses exhibiting traits of narcissistic personality disorder, borderline personality disorder and other related personality disorders.
I hear many accounts of people, especially 25-45, feeling overwhelmed with busy lives, feeling numb, trapped or unfulfilled. Sometimes these feelings have lead to out of control behaviors, shame and guilt. Fear of letting others down or failing to meet the perceived standards of our culture can cause the best of us to feel trapped in a spin cycle. I try to provide my clients with a safe, non-judgmental, objective environment to face their fears, feelings and struggles in order to make the way for new thinking and more positive behaviors.

Personality Disorders Therapists

What are the common treatment options for personality disorders?

Personality disorders are typically treated with psychotherapy, sometimes in conjunction with medication. Therapy can help people with personality disorders develop skills to tolerate difficult emotions, navigate interpersonal relationships, and solidify their sense of self. Medications can treat symptoms that co-occur with the disorder, such as depression, anger, aggression, and impulsivity.

When to seek treatment for personality disorders?

Even though treatment for personality disorders can be an uphill battle, it’s best to seek help if you suspect that you or a loved one is struggling with one, because personality disorders can create substantial problems in life. Symptoms depend on the specific disorder, but overall signs of personality disorders include consistent difficulty maintaining close relationships, dramatic variations in self-esteem, and an unstable sense of identity.

How long does therapy take for personality disorders?

The timeline for treating personality disorders isn’t as clear-cut as it is for other disorders. Change can be difficult, taking from around one year to five, 10, or more. The key is finding a therapist who has extensive experience treating the relevant disorder. For example, a psychologist who specializes in narcissistic personality disorder has specific communication strategies that allow them to sustain the relationship and be more effective with narcissistic patients.

Can therapy help people with personality disorders?

Research suggests that for those who are motivated to address concerns or interpersonal conflict related to a personality disorder, therapy is far more effective than no treatment, and that most people in therapy see improvements. However, since personality disorders involve entrenched elements of identity, they are less responsive to treatment than are other mental health conditions. Finding an expert who has extensive experience working with a given personality disorder is one factor that increases the likelihood of successful treatment.
