My specialties include working with relationship concerns, feelings of anxiety and depression, self-doubt and insecurity, assertiveness training, parenting concerns, women's issues, loss and life transitions.
My first career was in the business world, working in corporate America and on Wall Street. I understand the demands of a high paced career and how easy it is to become disconnected from our relationships and ourselves, and lose sight of our values and goals. I specialize with high performing professionals who prefer a directive and solution-based therapeutic style. I've been working with individuals and couples for over a decade, helping them improve the way they feel about themselves and enhance the quality of their relationships.

It is my belief that everyone navigates his or her way through their family of origin and early environment by developing strategies and coping techniques, essentially doing the best one can in the circumstances. Later, these ways of handling relationships and stressors can become limiting. Members of couples and families can also develop entrenched ways of relating that become partially based on assumptions. Frustration, anxiety, disappointment and resentment can result. Psychotherapy enables you to understand the evolution of these patterns and develop more choices in how you respond and relate to others.

At the core of many personal issues lie old messages of your sense of worth. Those messages conveyed to you while growing-up that may have minimized your self-esteem. By slowly revisiting the wounded part of yourself, old repetitive behaviors can cease to exist. A new sense of kindness toward yourself will begin to emerge. Allow me to travel with you to discover what is buried deep inside of your soul, exploring what keeps you from becoming all that you want to be. I hold a container of acceptance in the therapy room, while searching for its meaning and resolution.

My ideal client is curious, growth inspired, and has experienced trauma. I work with codependency, those that have been effected by narcissism, addiction, low self worth and generational trauma. I have a fondness and offer my support to those that are parents, co-parents and caretakers of children, or those that can not take care of themselves. I enjoy working with people with relationships as their focus, walking them through dating and the search for a partner or those that feel stuck in their relationships and need a space to share their confusion, fear and not knowing.

Being human can be hard! We are wired to be in relationship with one another, yet connection is hard for so many reasons. At an early age we learn and develop patterns of living and coping skills based on what was most adaptive at that time. On one hand, super smart! At the same time, these patterns can become outdated over time and no longer support the life or relationship(s) we want. Therapy creates an opportunity to explore, assess, and change the patterns that no longer serve us with compassion and curiosity.

You feel a chronic sense of loneliness and disconnection. You observe people who appear happier and spiritually 'lighter' than you and wonder if you will ever feel that way. You want to feel that way, but something is just weighing you down. You might recognize unresolved emotional pain inside you but can't identify its source. After all, you believe that you had a "pretty good childhood" and feel guilty having any complaints because "others had it so much worse than me." Or maybe the source of your disconnection and loneliness is more than apparent, but you struggle to move towards healing.

Feeling lost, abandoned, misunderstood, or exiled can lead to a disconnection from the soul. When we feel like no one wants us, we begin to abandon ourselves. We all have parts we dislike, often as a result of harmful messages we internalized from our families and society. The darkest parts of ourselves are often the most frightening, and consequently, the most rejected and ignored. It's in the darkness where we find pieces of ourselves we left behind, pieces that long to be loved and accepted. I’m here to tell you that every part of you is welcome in our work together. You are not alone, and you don't have to hide anymore.
