I enable clients to access the wisdom of their emotions to enhance their relationships and lives. Happy relationships and solid self-esteem are the foundations of psychological and emotional well-being, while disharmony, worries, and unhappiness signal that we need to experience new ways to effectively express feelings and enact aspirations in our lives. I strive to provide an inviting and nonjudgmental therapeutic context to empower clients to find satisfying ways to address concerns. My integrative approach draws upon Western science and Eastern wisdom, including Buddhist approaches to well-being.

We have all experienced various levels of loss, harm or violation in our lives and this will have an effect on us. Are you experiencing disordered eating; unwanted sexual behavior; depression, anxiety, anger or turning to substances for relief? Often people feel a pain inside they are unable to understand or articulate. Perhaps you're frustrated and beginning to feel hopeless or helpless to change. Transformation and change is possible but it is a process, not an event. Research shows that finding the right "fit" in a therapist is one of the most important factors in having a transformative experience in therapy.

Psychotherapy is an opportunity to help achieve transformation within ourselves. While it may be difficult to find the right therapist to work with at first, I find my warm, empathetic, friendly, straight-forward approach helps my clients work through issues to find peace and purpose within their lives, as we work collaboratively to find the right therapeutic approach that works for you. I particularly enjoy couples work, and I have expertise working with perinatal mood disordered clients, infertility challenges, basically all phases of pregnancy, including pre and post, for which I have completed certification training.

I am passionate about helping individuals, couples, and families get "unstuck" from challenging relationship dynamics. I walk alongside clients as they navigate major and minor life transitions and the shift in identity that often accompanies these milestone moments. I provide support during the highs and lows. I recognize that while people may be able to handle it all on their own, they should not have to do it all by themselves. I help to empower adults and adolescents as they adjust to change and learn to embrace new skills and new perspectives on themselves and their relationships with others.

Change is possible. My style is warm, engaging, and pragmatic. I ask a lot of questions and help you to find your own answers. I work with individuals who are struggling with panic, anxiety, depression, grief, isolation, loss, family and marital relationships. When emotions have taken over, it is crucial to have someone provide an objective perspective. I help you identify the beliefs and behaviors that may be getting in your way. Many times these are distorted, outdated beliefs or simply our bodies natural response to ongoing relational/environmental stressors.

Therapy can be about working to resolve ongoing pain, or it can simply be about self-exploration and growth. No matter what brings you to therapy, it is my belief that a trusting relationship between the client and therapist is the starting point for progress and is essential to achieving long-lasting change. My goal is to make all my clients feel comfortable and welcomed when working together. I understand that the ability to reflect and be comfortable in sharing the most intimate details about your life is not an easy task. My goal is to create a safe space for my clients to share their stories and to help manage their concerns.

Sometimes life presents us with difficult challenges and we feel lost. We may be haunted by trauma, feel stuck in relationships, have negative thoughts cycling around in our minds, and find that we are sabotaging ourselves. Changing life circumstances-both positive (like the birth of a child) or negative (loss of a job)-can cause anxiety and despair. I address these issues by fostering a warm and trusting therapeutic relationship where clients become more aware of their thoughts and feelings, make sense of their experiences, and move forward in their lives.

You want inspiration to pursue what matters, and less anxiety about what doesn’t. You want to stop apologizing for what makes you you, and to speak aloud the fears, fantasies and experiences that have previously been silenced. You want to revel in yourself—maybe for the very first time. Or you know your relationship is on the rocks, but you aren’t sure where to begin. You think you might need therapy, but it’s hard to get started. You’ve bought books, read articles, and exhausted your emotional and mental resources - you’re exhausted. You no longer want to do this alone. You want to know where to go from here.
