As a seasoned clinician (25+yrs experience) I find the work deeply rewarding. My primary focus is relational but can integrate other techniques. Good therapy helps people to develop a stronger sense of identity, self worth and agency. We can explore strengths, longings, disappointments, stuck places, self defeating behaviors, caregiver strain and coping tools. We can work to deepen relationships and focus on greater satisfaction in both your personal & professional life. Prefer initial contact via text (or email) telling me about yourself and what you are looking to work on in therapy.

Traveling down a road alone can leave us feeling lonely, unprotected, unsafe, and unvalidated: as if we must face the world and the unknown alone. Through the counseling process, we can build a safe space to explore and journey beyond the dark times in our lives and work to bring light and color back to the dark areas that I believe are designed to help us grow. Counseling is a journey and a process: one that you do not have to walk alone. As a Resident in Counseling, I aim to walk with you and help you to use your strengths to overcome the challenges in your life.

Everyone struggles from time to time - what's important is how we respond to the struggle. I believe struggle turns to suffering when we refuse to accept what we cannot change or when we passively accept what can be changed. In my practice I help people learn to avoid suffering by changing the things they can and accepting the things they can't change. Using a variety of skills and techniques, I help people learn how to thrive - even in the face of struggle - while being true to themselves and effective in their interactions with others.

Therapy has as its fulcrum a secure, connected, trustworthy relationship. Within this safe zone there is opportunity for discovery, healing, questioning, empowerment, questioning, and goal-setting. I see therapy as an open-ended, yet purposeful opportunity for all of these, and more. I strive to help clients explore and expand their sense of themselves, and to live and relate authentically, both in relationships and in vocation. I have a gentle, affirmative clinical presence, at points serene and curious, at others interactive, with humor as an adjunct.

I offer a genuine connection to my patients, which I believe to be the heart of psychotherapy. Each individual is unique, and so is their purpose in seeking therapy. I prioritize the relationship with individuals above any tool, or technique. As a result, I have seen my patients change and have witnessed their transformation.

I offer therapy & evaluation (testing) services for those 18+. Clients don't come to me because they are happy. They come, most likely, because they are in pain and hurt. They are tired of feeling stuck, and the fear, tears, and whatever seems to be causing them all. They aren’t interested in therapy because they want therapy. In fact, they are not even sure IF they want therapy—but they ARE sure they want to get unstuck and feel better. So, for you: here you are. . . not all that sure that this is going to help but damn sure you want to do something that might make a positive change and get your life moving forward again.

Accepting new clients: I approach my work through the lens of attachment – how we cope in moments of disconnection with those we love the most – with empathy, cultural awareness, and validation around being a human – moreover, a parent. As a mother to young children, I understand the beauty and despair of parenthood. As a therapist, I understand the impact our childhood experiences have on how we show up in our adult relationships. I meld my experience and training to support both women and men along the path of reconnecting with themselves and with those whom they love most.

Being a psychotherapist means being available to you in a way that is different to other forms of human relatedness. It means I listen to the painful events and relationships troubling you in your life and open a conversation about them between us. This conversation is private and confidential, yet allows for the most honest and accessible way to both explore and understand your reactions and feelings. Although the foundation of my knowledge lies in the psychoanalytic tradition, I incorporate contemporary knowledge and methods that have developed since Sigmund Freud's first discoveries at the end of the 19th century.
