We all experience times in our lives when we know that things can be better. We flip through social media and think that everyone else seems to have a perfect life, compounding our pain.

I believe that we are all capable of being our best selves and living full, meaningful lives. Therapy can provide the space to determine what is getting in the way. You may have encountered some obstacles in your path or struggle with painful emotions, such as anxiety. You may be experiencing difficulty managing a transition or planning your future. Additionally, you might be caught up in behaviors that intensify the hurt, frustration, loneliness and sorrow. Maybe you are drinking too much alcohol, using drugs, over-shopping, gaming or eating in a way that doesn't feel good. You might be internalizing responses to stress and pain through self-criticism, isolation, and rumination.

You are not alone. We all have the potential for change. I'd like to help you identify what is creating or contributing to your struggles, as well as help you to locate what is in your control to change and take the steps towards the life you desire.

My approach is supportive and dynamic, using mindfulness, self-compassion and cognitive and behavioral strategies that have been proven to help. I would be honored to be your partner in helping you grow.

I created my virtual practice to help you, the overachiever in need that struggles to schedule time for themselves.

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.

Every psychotherapy, whether it involves talking, medications or a combination of both, must begin with a clear sense of who an individual wants to be, or what defines that individual's core essence. Everything proceeds from this starting point in a process that is constantly reassessing the difference between that "ideal self" and where one is in the moment. This contrast assures that there will be constant movement forwards in the therapy. Of course one invariably seeks help at a moment of acute distress, but emerging from a place of discontent or suffering offers a unique opportunity at transformation and it is our goal to take full advantage of that opportunity.

By far the most powerful agency we possess is the ability to choose our life's path. Our thoughts and emotions can be fleeting and unreliable but they can also erode the confidence in our ability to make the choices that serve us well. A therapeutic process must restore the preeminence of your choices to allow you to craft the life that deep down, you always knew you were meant to lead.

In this safe, supportive and warm environment we will work together to help you feel better while also understanding what is causing your distress.
