All you need to bring to therapy is an open mind and a willingness to explore. I am a very interactive therapist; I give a lot of feedback and guidance. In my work with individuals, I help people see how they developed the coping skills and defense mechanisms they did, and how to begin recognizing them in a less judgmental way. I also teach couples new communication skills: how to rebuild trust and safety after a breach, how to mirror one another, ways to validate and empathize. We work on breaking bad patterns and create healthier ones using positivity and appreciations.

It's so rewarding to help couples and families heal old and current wounds, and to see my clients use therapy as a way to soar to new emotional freedoms. Please don't be in pain anymore: contact me so we can set goals together, develop healthier ways of coping, and watch you blossom.

A special note to my prospective online clients: I feel privileged to help my clients through a variety of challenges as they embrace life transitions. Working together, I can help you move forward with confidence and strength.
Many of my clients come to me with mild to moderate symptoms of anxiety and/or depression. I am very mindful of the degree to which you appear to be impacted in your daily life by these symptoms when we are working together. Please understand that your safety and well-being is most important to me. I am not equipped in my current office setting to manage severe depression, active thoughts of harming yourself in any way, or thoughts and ideas that do not connect to existing reality. If we begin working together and symptoms like these become apparent, I will make additional referrals for you in order to assure that you receive the best possible care and support.

Welcome! I offer services related to psychotherapy, assessment, and consultation. I work with children, adolescents, and adults in a warm and supportive therapeutic relationship.

I also specialize in services related to psychological testing and assessment for children, adolescents and adults.

Change can be challenging. Developing a therapeutic relationship can help you create a space where change can be explored in a safe and supportive environment.
