I can help you change your relationship with your partner, your family, a friend, or yourself! People are often challenged by difficult emotions or challenging relationships. Instead of facing this task head-on, you may distract yourself with unhealthy habits like over-drinking, improper eating, excessive social media or video game playing. While these techniques may help in the moment, they can make the problem worse. If you are avoiding the challenge, you will not find the peace!

Wouldn't it be nice if you could say: "I have relationships that make me happy; I am present in my life and the lives of others; I treat myself with compassion; I have healthy hobbies; I find my work meaningful, and I feel satisfied with my life."

I use a variety of approaches and I will tailor our work to each individual. Techniques include CBT, EFT and family therapy. My specialties include work-life balance, couples counseling and men’s issues, but I am well-versed in helping with anxiety, depression, adjusting to a life change, and other issues. If you are ready to jump in, call or email today!

In my work as a therapist, I focus on understanding early experiences and how psychological well-being can be fostered through relationships. I believe change and healing come through relationships: our relationships with ourselves, as well as our relationships with others. I view therapy as a collaborative process that allows both therapist and client to grow and change.
I practice primarily from a relational-dynamic perspective, though I incorporate techniques from cognitive behavioral (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and narrative approaches to tailor treatment to the unique and individual needs of each client.
My clients describe me as an empathetic, active listener who approaches their concerns with caring, respect, pragmatism, and sometimes, humor. I'm honored that you're considering working with me and would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

I offer adult, child/adolescent and family therapy. "I have two doctoral-level degrees, one in clinical psychology and the other in educational psychology, providing both clinical structure as well as a tailored approach to individuals' specific learning styles. I use leading, empirically-validated approaches to treat anxiety, depression, emotional dysregulation, relationship/communication challenges and post-traumatic stress disorder. I bring my experience in research and clinical practice to each session to identify efficient ways to reduce stress, change behavior and achieve your goals. I have worked nationally and internationally with departments and ministries of health and education and have held faculty positions at Hawaii Pacific University, Yale University School of Medicine and Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence. My research publications are in the fields of cultural, educational and clinical psychology.

Since we all enter therapy with individual intentions and motivations, I feel it is important to customize therapy to individuals' specific aspirations. My approach to emotions and behavior change reflects best practices and current advances in developmental, educational and clinical psychology. My purpose is to provide knowledge and skills that improve your ability to manage thoughts, feelings and relationships in order to create less stress and more enjoyment in life.

Sometimes it is difficult and scary to make sense of feelings, learning how to manage them, and being able to find healthy ways to cope while creating and fostering self-awareness. Therapy is a safe space and a confidential grounding process that through time, consistency and working together will allow you to identify and develop a healthy voice to express thoughts and feelings. I strive to help clients understand their emotional conflicts, behavioral repetitions, and their inner-self by empathetically assisting them in working through emotional difficulties and life struggles. Feeling empowered in being proactive about our health and understanding the steps towards change is a powerful and vital process to feel seen and heard.
