I want to acknowledge how hard it may have been to even get to this step of looking for a psychiatrist. Oftentimes it can be a process months to years in the making. Now that you’re here, I really encourage you to take one more step and reach out for support. Therapy is an investment in you. It is acknowledging that you are worth the time, and you are worth the effort. It can be so hard to be vulnerable and ask for help. My treatment approach is to work collaboratively and build a foundation for a safe and nonjudgmental environment, which will allow us to work together to explore and better understand your thoughts, emotions and behaviors.

Finding a connection with a therapist can be tough. We will explore your needs and what you are seeking in treatment. If we both decide that we are a good match then we will begin. Should we feel that your needs may be better addressed by another therapist or approach I will help guide you to someone that may be a better fit, at any time before, during, or after treatment.

Therapy is an invitation to a different kind of relationship – it is all at once open and vulnerable while also reliable and purposeful. Of course, like any relationship worthwhile, it comes with its own set of challenges: Do we “click?” Are you learning something about yourself and the world around you through this time (both during and after a session)? Are we comfortable providing each other feedback? Are we doing the work of healing? 

It is as much about what the therapist can offer and the ways in which they can validate your truth as it is what you would like to and are ready to bring to the table at your own pace. 

As such, I see myself as the facilitator of this bold, empowering process – you take ownership of your decisions, including the positive ones that showcase your inherent power to engage in life in the best way possible for you.

Life sometimes throws us curveballs. Maybe you're having a difficult time adjusting to your role as a new Mom--or are in a later stage of Momhood and have lost your sense of self and self-care along the way. Maybe you're contemplating divorce and scared, or are facing some other major life transition. Or maybe you wish you were facing a transition and feel stuck. It's so common for women and Moms to feel guilty and alone in their experiences. I know, I've been there.

It is my mission to provide you with a safe space to talk about things that are hard to talk about. I'm here for you, to provide you with a balance of gentle support and practical guidance and skills to move you forward. My style is authentic, down-to-Earth, and judgment-free, and I'm not afraid of humor, four-letter words, or thinking outside the box.

Please don't hesitate to reach out to me and chat about working together.
I'm looking forward to meeting you!

So many people feel alone in their struggles, as well as disconnected from friends, family, and self. Seeking support is a brave step that signifies the desire for change, fulfillment and/or connection. Building a relationship with a therapist who is a good match for you and experiencing good therapy will be life changing. It is so important to find a therapist that you respect and connect well with, someone who can bring care and comfort to your most vulnerable parts.
Message to clients with an eating disorder: Struggling with an eating disorder can be such a lonely and isolating experience. Feelings are often internalized and it feels foreign or too scary to externalize them in a state of pure vulnerability. The eating disorder behaviors are helpful to numb self and distract from the current emotions and/or present stressors in your life. Although CBT and DBT skills can be helpful tools to help restructure distorted thinking, regulate emotions and improve distress, I find that it does not shift behaviors. This result leaves people feeling hopeless and frustrated. I feel passionate that the work I do with my clients not only improves symptoms, but is also transformative in the way they relate to family, friends and self.

For individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, and/or adjusting to a new situation: Transitions are a standard part of life, but that does not make the process an easy or comfortable one. Talking about the issues, the stumbling blocks, and the obstacles can make them more surmountable. Whether it’s adjusting to school, to a changing relationship, or to a difficult work experience, people can benefit from talking with a therapist and getting support.

I believe that all of us can help ourselves once we have the tools and resources to do so. Through practice, commitment, and support, anyone can work through life stressors and transitions. Sometimes we need extra encouragement, and sometimes we need to learn those self-help skills in order to be able to help ourselves through a tough time. I believe in your inner strength and resilience and see my role as teacher/coach and sometimes cheerleader. I aim to help you discover how you want your life to be and then to help you figure out how to get there.
