It’s important to me that you feel comfortable in sharing your self with me. If you are feeling shame or embarrassment about your behavior or some aspects of your self, you will not be judged by me. You are doing the best you can under the circumstances.

Together, we can figure out a way forward that helps ease the feelings of anxiety and depression that propelled you to find a therapist. In time, you will find resolution in other areas of your life including a greater tolerance of your own feelings and an increase in self-compassion.

At different times in our lives we can feel stuck and struggle with finding our way. Oftentimes, our usual ways of dealing with these struggles aren't helping or may even be preventing us from feeling better. I work with individuals who are dealing with loss and trauma, sadness and anxiety or having difficulties in relationships, work, school, parenting, and varying life-stage transitions. In this safe, supportive and warm environment we will work together to help you feel better while also understanding what is causing your distress.

The message that I have seen throughout my career is that life is not a straight line. It is often filled with “curve balls” that are unsettling resulting in feelings of worry, concern, being overwhelmed and uncertain.

Having been a psychologist for 30 years, I draw from many areas of experience and training to help you navigate these curve balls by working to develop the necessary skills to reclaim one’s balance in life.

My therapeutic methodology is to use a combination of a mind-body, cognitive-behavioral and eclectic approaches to treat depression, mood, anxiety and personality disorders, as well as, assisting in navigating life’s challenges such as grief, loss and emotional upheaval.

I work with individuals across the adult developmental lifespan providing one-on-one, group, and couples counseling.

Building a trusting relationship is the foundation of successful therapy. Regardless of the approach taken, the most important factors in therapy are safety, empathy and connection. I am an integrative therapist taking a developmental approach to understanding current difficulties while emphasizing concrete, practical steps that patients can take while building a greater awareness of their emotional worlds.

Hi and welcome! Asking for help isn’t always comfortable, but I find the uncomfortable places are often the ones filled with the most purpose and possibilities. Congratulations on taking the first step! As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I approach therapy from a systems perspective. That means I view people and situations as interconnected and inter-influencing rather than in isolation. It also means I am passionate about helping people strengthen their relationships, whether that is with a spouse, friend, child, or with themselves. My approach is to listen and engage a client’s story in a way that instills hope, encourages curiosity and insight, and facilitates growth. My hope is to help my clients see the value of the process, cultivate their relationships with grace and vulnerability, and thrive in their purpose.

Relationships can be very challenging and complicated both with others and ourselves. If you find yourself in a place questioning repetitive thoughts or feeling emotions that may be roadblocks for personal growth, therapy is an opportunity for you to explore and grow both personally and interpersonally. We are all made up of many parts and often times we have a couple parts of us, such as an angry part or anxious part, that we feel defined by. Often times these parts prevent us from living our truest and fullest selves. I promise to be fully present and committed in helping you understand these difficult parts and how they may be preventing you from feeling like yourself. I have a very interactive style and will work with you at a pace you are comfortable with to help you find peace and harmony with yourself and in your life.

Sometimes, it takes life getting hard, for someone to come to therapy. Sometimes people wait for a while before they feel, they have to talk to someone. You probably have tried all of your familiar coping tools but may be feeling stuck and alone, searching for relief and support. I believe in your capacities and resilience to navigate life's challenges, but I'd like to help you not go at life alone. Both from personal and professional experience I know how therapy can be a space, rich with opportunities for healing, self-discovery, expression and personal growth. Trying it with the right person can be one of the most valuable investments in yourself, your relationships, health, and your loved ones. In our work together, you and I will be partners; the kind of team that can help you create a version of yourself and life that is meaningful, purpose-driven, and aligned with your capabilities.
