I believe we are all made for connection... connection with others and connection with ourselves. Life brings so many changes and transitions, some of which can leave us feeling disconnected, overwhelmed, and uncertain about how to make things better.

I strive to create a safe and comfortable space where you feel heard and understood. My style is warm, compassionate and non-judgmental. I listen attentively and work collaboratively with my clients, seeking to understand their experiences and tailor therapy to their unique needs and goals.

I have always been deeply curious about people, their struggles, and how to help them feel more grounded, fulfilled, and engaged in their lives. I welcome the opportunity to meet you and explore this process with you.

I believe that we all behave the way we do and believe the things we do for reasons that were useful at one point in our life. Those ways of being, and ways of relating to others, often stop being helpful, however, and that's when I think therapy is useful - to understand the context of our actions and attitudes, so we can take control over them.

I also believe that every person exists in context, and understanding yourself can have positive impacts on all of your relationships - at work, at home, everywhere.

If you're considering therapy, chances are there are some things you'd like to change in your patterns of behavior or relationships. Understanding those things as part of a broader context will help you take charge and make changes, to feel in control of your choices, and to live the life you want.

Trying to navigate stress, anxiety, and depression without support is like climbing Mt. Everest without ropes! Sometimes we just need a compassionate,  discerning professional to listen, while we give ourselves the gift of validation and support.

Are you an adolescent or adult that feels every task, big or small, is impossible? Does anxiety or depression affect you in ways that feel overwhelming? These feelings can affect your relationships, your sleep, your job or school performance, or all of the above. This often leads to one feeling unmotivated and sad, or angry and explosive.

I want to help you if you are feeling this way. It is important to learn about yourself, what is causing these feelings, and to know that there are solutions and supports in place. It is then, that one can begin to heal, return to being productive and happy, and living a better life. I am here to help you in this journey.

I am a hopeful therapist, and I will share this hope with you. I will give you unconditional positive regard and respect your choices. I will help you make sense of why you respond to life the way you do, and why your body responds to triggers the way it does. I have helped hundreds of abuse survivors in their healing journey. If you're willing to partner with me and work hard on your goals, I can help you experience improvement in symptoms. The past doesn't have to stay in the present. Working on the trauma doesn't have to be scary. I will prepare you for it and help you see the progress you make along the way.

My skills, interventions, and personality are the same online as in-person. My interventions are effective in helping you reach your goals when you and I work hard together.

As a psychologist I have worked with people experiencing all types of emotional pain and I am amazed every day at the resilience I have seen. I focus on building a strong bond with my clients, and on building insight and self-awareness. I incorporate mindfulness, CBT, DBT and coping skills into my work and I try to help my clients feel calm and grounded. I have a wide range of experience and can work well with most issues, such as depression, anxiety, grief/loss, parenting issues, and trauma and abuse, and I work with individuals of all ages, from children to adults.  I have heard many sad stories so there is never a need to feel ashamed or afraid when you are communicating with me.

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.
