Whether this is your first time seeking therapy, or you have engaged in therapy in the past, we will work together toward cultivating the self-awareness and tools you need to make lasting change. My belief is that you already have everything you need to be your best self and live a full and meaningful life. If you’re reading this, it’s likely you’ve encountered some obstacles in your path. Maybe it’s difficulty coping with a transition, or feeling unsure about 'What’s next?' Maybe you struggle with painful emotions or a depressed mood. Maybe you have suffered a loss or a trauma. Whatever brings you to therapy now, my role is to provide a safe space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings and help you get unstuck from the patterns of thinking and behavior that are no longer serving you.
You are doing the best you can. I truly believe that. And you have likely developed ways of pushing away a difficult past or challenging emotions that are simply not working for you any longer. Not to worry, therapy is not about diving headfirst into the deep end of your pain and suffering. Rather, it’s about gently (and with loads of self compassion!) helping you learn and practice the skills you need for tolerating and being with your experience so that you can better understand it and move forward. With self awareness comes choice, and with choice the ability to learn new ways of coping with the stressors life throws your way.
We will work collaboratively on developing a plan that will help you reach your goals. We will discuss the pace, frequency of visits, and duration of treatment. I tend to be very active in session, so if you have had the experience of 50 minutes of nodding and ‘mm-hm’ you will not get that here! I will listen carefully and ask thoughtful questions to help you challenge long held thoughts and beliefs and explore different perspectives. I use humor when appropriate (yes, you can laugh in therapy!) and will offer direct feedback (with your permission of course!) I am not perfect, don’t have all the answers, and so do not expect that from you!

Coming to therapy can be anxiety-provoking, especially if it's your first time, and it's important to keep in mind that you don't have to come prepared. There's no right or wrong thing to say, as the first few sessions will be about you and your therapist getting to know each other and starting to talk about difficult things.

Out-of-pocket-fees: $80 - $150 per session

I think of therapy as conversations that help people address the problems that are interfering with their lives. I help clients separate from these problems and support them in moving towards what they care about most--their values, hopes and dreams. I believe that the best therapy is a collaborative process where the therapist and the client share in the investigation of the the client’s concerns and the potential solutions. I ask exploratory questions that lead clients toward insights and discoveries. Together we develop simple, achievable action plans.

My approach is supportive and compassionate and I believe the foundation to successful therapy begins with establishing a trusting relationship between the therapist and the client. I work with people of all ages and I specialize in treating people with depression, anxiety, substance use disorders, and trauma and specialize in working with parents and families of adolescents and children struggling with eating disorders and transgender issues. I use CBT and DBT strategies to help individuals to make desired changes in their lives. I work with couples seeking to improve their relationships.

I learn a lot from my clients. One of the most important lessons that I've learned is that our relationships -- to other people, to ourselves, our work, our emotions, and countless other aspects of daily life -- are powerful. By looking at your relationships together, we can bring understanding to your challenges and empower you to take actions that establish and grow your well-being.
