Most of us are used to keeping our thoughts and feelings to ourselves, but talk therapy works. Talk therapy can help you change the way you think and feel about your life. It can provide structure and meaning, reduce anxiety, raise mood, lead to self-awareness and improve relationships. Let's talk.

My approach is collaborative and active, with emphasis on building a strong alliance, then working towards achieving your goals. My style is direct, collaborative, and introspective. I also operate within a systemic and multidisciplinary framework that includes taking into account collaboration with other providers, your family's value system and personal experiences. This makes me effective at creating a safe environment and evaluating/working with youth and young adults that struggle with disruptive behaviors, emotional regulation difficulties, trauma, anxiety, mood difficulties, and learning and academic challenges.

My work as a coach has been informed by my practice as a therapist. Too frequently my clients came to me with regrets about decisions they made early in life. I want to help you make choices and changes now that reflect your core values, so that when you look back, you realize you've lived a life full of joy, authenticity and deep satisfaction.

Seeking out therapy is such a big step - the most important part is finding someone you respect who also respects you. It is scary to open yourself up to a stranger, but it can also be so freeing to be able to be yourself with someone who has no "skin in the game," so to speak. I love to provide judgement-free supportive therapy to help individuals process feelings of anxiety and lack of control associated with the current pandemic.

I also enjoy helping professionals set boundaries and provide executive function support to increase productivity and protect personal/family time. My work as a neuropsychologist makes me uniquely able to help parents of students with special educational needs navigate remote learning and I can help families set up goals/behavior plans.

When you begin therapy, you begin the path to wellness and leading the life you visualize. I believe that therapy should be a solution-oriented and collaborative process, where the goals are measurable and the intervention is research-based. Your values will directly impact the development of these goals and we will review progress at scheduled points to ensure you are comfortable and benefiting from the therapeutic process.

I'm a steady presence and an attentive listener – and I’ll work with you to create a safe, non-judgmental space where we can talk. I'll also ask questions and offer ideas. We'll start where you want to start and go from there – always at your pace. Trained in both law and mental health, I listen and respond from multiple perspectives. I practiced law for a number of years and this practical experience informs my perspective as well.
