Note: My practice is full at this time; I am not taking new clients or adding to my waiting list: I believe that metaphor is the carrier of deep truths about the self, and the door to meaning and growth. As a therapist, I listen for metaphor in verbal and non-verbal interactions with clients. I was trained in Expressive Therapy and also use a developmental approach. I am also fully trained in EMDR. I base all of my work with children, teens, families, and adults in a grounding in normal development, taking into account developmental stages as I look at issues and problems presented.
Are you wishing to connect more with others? Do you feel detached from your partner? Are you experiencing a sense of overwhelm or anxiety? Are you noticing more conflict or stress in your family? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you may consider talking with a supportive professional. Over the years, my focus has developed into an insight-oriented, strength and relationship-based approach. I incorporate the most up-to-date neuroscience research, mind-body awareness, and self-regulation techniques that support families, individuals, and adolescents in achieving their goals.

Given the level of community and world uncertainty, you may be feeling increased anxiety, depression, conflict, confusion and isolation. How do you cope with such enormous uncertainty? Working effectively with your mind and reactivity is essential to finding balance, strength, comfort and connection. My focus in therapy is to listen deeply to your inner wisdom, express more fully who you are, develop skills to accomplish this and make choices that further your positive intentions. Life provides challenges at the best of times; we need support when we are most vulnerable. Therapy provides an opportunity to explore what is possible.

Whether you're struggling with mental health or are curious about self-exploration I offer a therapeutic practice that is based on sincerity, compassion, and 10+ years of diverse clinical experience. I enjoy working with a broad spectrum of mental health challenges, and incorporate various theoretical models into my practice.
Welcome! You took the first steps to find support, and I'll be happy to help you on your wellness journey. I provide collaborative, respectful psychotherapy for adults struggling with a variety of concerns including: anxiety, depression, relationship struggles, persistent negative beliefs, and emotions that are overwhelming and/or confusing. My clients often find that they get relief from the patterns and symptoms they've had for years. I have a B.A. in Psychology and a M.A. in Mental Health Counseling and Behavioral Medicine. I have 17 years experience working with adults, children and families. I am currently only seeing adults.
My approach is to provide a safe and therapeutic environment that encourages vulnerability, curiosity, and self-reflection. I enjoy working with individuals who are seeking support through a challenging transition or experience as well as those looking for a space to strengthen their quality of life through personal awareness.
I work with adults, older adolescents, and couples, and facilitate groups. I treat depression, anxiety, interpersonal difficulties, family of origin issues, OCD, trauma, and grief/loss. Life is difficult and often painful - much more so for some than for others. This pain brings people to therapy to engage in a process that is itself often painful; and yet they do so willingly and with hope. I am continually inspired by my clients as they engage in this process and come to see themselves in new ways, and make choices that allow them to live more fully.
Depression, anxiety, PTSD, adjustment issues, life transitions - I am currently offering tele-therapy sessions! If you’re in need of support during this time of social distancing, please give me a call!
Are you ready to find your healing balance? Here at Balance Psychology, we provide evidence-based, collaborative treatment approaches specific to your individual strengths and needs. Our goal, for adults, children, couples and families, is to help you heal and adjust to difficult life circumstances and decrease difficult symptoms. Both therapist and client are actively involved in the process of improving quality of life, reducing symptom frequency and duration, and alleviating mental pain or distress. We are experienced with diverse cultural backgrounds, diagnoses, ages, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and genders.
We each possess an innate wisdom, and we all lose our way from time to time. I help clients to find and listen to their intuition and access their own personal guidance to be happier and reach their goals. I have a warm client centered and spiritual approach. As a psychodynamic, body centered psychotherapist with over 20 years of experience my hope is to help clients find the courage and the resources to make changes to feel more alive and fulfilled. I also offer life coaching, internal family systems and energy medicine.
My ideal client would be someone who wants to grow, is willing to touch his or her own pain and at his/her own pace is willing to change. We all come with our own “story”. I do believe that through personal growth we can change it - understanding that it is only a story. We are the main actor and editor of ourself and this story that is being called ”my life”. Through therapy we can learn how to take ownership and responsibility and replace it with a more satisfying and successful version of ourselves
I work with folks on the cusp of transformation—people wanting to switch careers, leave a relationship, shed inauthentic identities, or in the midst of any transition that requires clear vision and decisive energy. My work centers around clarifying values and desires, tossing out unhelpful ideas about ourselves, and taking responsibility for the identities and experiences we want. This process can involve grieving what we’ve lost or never had, and invites us into the messy practice of relating to ourselves and others more gently and honestly. I currently meet with people who identify as women or nonbinary, ages 25-45.
As a Clinical Social Worker, building a trusting therapeutic relationship with my clients is the most important thing. Once a trusted relationship is established, this is when we can be most successful towards getting you to a place where you feel more grounded, self aware and connected to yourself.
As a National Board-Certified Health and Wellness Coach, I offer a client-centered approach to vitalize clients as they embark upon and achieve sustainable health and wellness lifestyle changes. Clients can be supported in the areas of nutrition/weight management, physical activity, sleep, stress management, and nicotine and alcohol use, particularly “gray area” drinking.
I am committed to helping those who seek greater understanding, connection, and stability in relationships with self and others. Specialty areas include depression, anxiety, BPD spectrum, trauma, substance use, and interpersonal conflict. The focus of my practice is integrative individual psychotherapy and I primarily draw from psychodynamic, interpersonal, and cognitive/behavioral approaches (including ACT, DBT, CBT). My background in mindfulness also informs therapy. Above all, I think my job is to listen really well, while bringing curiosity, challenge, and kindness toward your unique human experience.
