As a therapist I know that life can often present you with problems that challenge your ability to successfully cope with certain situations on your own. You may either feel flooded by emotional responses or you may find yourself shutting down, turning off the system which appears to be disrupting your life. The problem with shutting down in an attempt to escape the feelings, is that the result can be isolation which then leads to increased sadness, stressed relationships, and depression. I would like to be able to offer you a safe, protected place to talk about yourself and your struggles so that change can happen through a gentle, accepting process that will allow you to gain knowledge about yourself and allow you to regain your footing through self-acceptance.

Life has its ups and downs, and in the midst of those fluctuations, there often aren’t ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ answers. There are times when we all truly need help and support to navigate difficult challenges and choices. With the right guidance, it’s possible to process difficult feelings, become curious about the unknown, experience profound transformation and add to our life tool kit of skills and habits. In my psychotherapy practice, I specialize in working with worry, anxiety, panic, trauma (childhood and more recent events) and relationships. And sometimes people don’t need a psychotherapist but a coach to gain clarity on their goals, build a map to a brighter future and gain skills to get there. Working with me as a coach, you have the advantage of a coach who has deep psychological training. Regardless of our work together, therapy or coaching, it’s my aim to create a safe place for you to explore your life, to listen intently and truly understand your experience and perspective and provide you with real-world options that work best for you.

In a nutshell, an intimacy avoidant behavior is using something on the outside to fix something inside.  Intimacy avoidance behaviors include over-spending or over-shopping, problematic sexual or relationships behaviors (including excessive pornography use, codependency and avoidance of sex or relationships), substance abuse and eating disorders.

I offer psychotherapy for individuals, with a focus on college students and young professionals. People seek therapy in times of frustration, suffering, and dissatisfaction--in my practice I take time to understand what brings you in and take a deep, collaborative approach to treatment. Whether you are looking into therapy to deal with a one-time event or to manage a lifetime stressor, together we can facilitate change to help redirect your time and energy from distress towards living a fulfilling life.
My training spans many areas of mental health and I have experience with many problems that bring people to therapy. My particular areas of expertise are those most often encountered by 18-35 year olds, including anxiety and stress, depression, sexuality, and confusion about relationships and careers.
My motto is caring curiosity. Together we can develop a trusting relationship to help you understand and change what ails you. Please contact me to discuss how we might begin and visit my website to learn more about my practice.

All you need to bring to therapy is an open mind and a willingness to explore. I am a very interactive therapist; I give a lot of feedback and guidance. In my work with individuals, I help people see how they developed the coping skills and defense mechanisms they did, and how to begin recognizing them in a less judgmental way. I also teach couples new communication skills: how to rebuild trust and safety after a breach, how to mirror one another, ways to validate and empathize. We work on breaking bad patterns and create healthier ones using positivity and appreciations.

It's so rewarding to help couples and families heal old and current wounds, and to see my clients use therapy as a way to soar to new emotional freedoms. Please don't be in pain anymore: contact me so we can set goals together, develop healthier ways of coping, and watch you blossom.
