As a psychologist in private practice, I have the opportunity to work with people in order to optimize their emotional well-being. I work collaboratively with individuals to assist their identifying factors which have caused distress. Together we work to discover the obstacles to feeling better. We consider patterns that have developed over time to understand their adaptive benefits and maladaptive consequences. This approach provides opportunities to evaluate and to chart better ways to respond to life's challenges. I utilize a psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral approach with an emphasis on increasing awareness of one's reactions and experiences.

Life is hard. Emotions certainly don't make it any easier. I work with clients who want to feel more in control of their emotions, engage in healthier relationships, and figure out life's next steps. I specialize in helping you reduce symptoms related to anxiety, depression, and complex trauma and have experience working with neurodivergent clients, especially high-functioning autism. I don't believe anyone needs to be "fixed" but if you feel "stuck" I can help you take action towards the things that are most important to you so that you can be your most authentic self, and live a life of meaning and purpose.

As we move through life and experience transitions, challenges and struggles, a person with tools, perspective, and confidence is well-equipped to move forward and to heal.

Engaging in therapy is a vulnerable and sometimes scary process. I specialize in working with couples either in a committed relationship or marriage. Working on relationships I often find the thing that brings couples together initially, gets lost after the "honeymoon" period is over. It is easy to get complacent with all of life's stressors. Being a strength-based therapist, I believe that anything is possible if both people are willing to work. And to be honest, therapy is work! I view my clients as the experts in their life and work together with them to create positive change.

For couples to experience skillful loving, they must increase their capacity to care intelligently and compassionately for one another. Most couples come into my office in crises, stuck in survival mode. Our initial work is to stabilize the crises so reconciliation and healing can begin. To rebuild trust, hope, and security in the relationship, I create a safe space in which couples can learn to have each other's backs, appreciate each other's thoughts and feelings, respond to each other's distress, and recognize the partner's bid to form closeness. This work takes patience, self-respect, and communication.
