It's never easy to find time for yourself. You have a busy schedule, deadlines to meet, you have responsibilities and errands to run. Sometimes you can convince yourself that you don't even need help, although deep down you desire change.

Are you feeling more anxious then usual, struggling with depression, or maybe having difficulty managing a change in your life? I created my virtual practice to help you, the overachiever in need that struggles to schedule time for themselves. Teletherapy allows flexibility and accessibility making it easier for you to set aside one hour a week dedicated to your mental health. During that hour I will provide a safe and validating therapeutic environment and we will work together as a team to help you reach your desired goals.

I'm a caring and direct psychologist with a speciality in sleep disorders. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) to help you to get the sleep your body needs. CBT-I is a rapid and effective treatment. In fact, 85% of CBT-I clients will increase their sleep by at least 1 hour with as little as 4-8 sessions. Stop letting your worries or your medications dictate your sleep. Let's work together so you can reclaim ownership of your sleep.

I also offer treatments for the issues underlying sleep disturbance including depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction and other mind/body health challenges. I use compassion and support to help you understand your problems, and I provide concrete coping skills and evidence based tools to help you manage these problems outside of sessions.

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.

The message that I have seen throughout my career is that life is not a straight line. It is often filled with “curve balls” that are unsettling resulting in feelings of worry, concern, being overwhelmed and uncertain.

Having been a psychologist for 30 years, I draw from many areas of experience and training to help you navigate these curve balls by working to develop the necessary skills to reclaim one’s balance in life.

My therapeutic methodology is to use a combination of a mind-body, cognitive-behavioral and eclectic approaches to treat depression, mood, anxiety and personality disorders, as well as, assisting in navigating life’s challenges such as grief, loss and emotional upheaval.

I work with individuals across the adult developmental lifespan providing one-on-one, group, and couples counseling.

I believe that the best opportunities for my clients to connect with themselves in new ways arise when I connect with them with empathy, interest, and active engagement. I don't provide "the answers" for my clients. Instead, answers emerge through the work we do together. We’ll build a partnership to help you understand yourself better, accept yourself more, and feel stronger to pursue your life goals and desires.

It's not you just you. As a therapist who works with young adults, I have noticed a pattern of perfectionism, fear of making mistakes, people-pleasing behavior, and self-criticism that is tormenting our generation. These tendencies are leading to exhaustion, anxiety, depression, self-sabotage, and burnout.

Our work together will help you develop new ways of thinking, living, and relating to others. You will feel more connected to the present, yourself, others, and the life you desire to live.

I offer a free 20-minute consultation with my potential clients to find out what is bringing you to therapy, what you're looking to gain from this experience, and make sure my training and skills lineup and I am able to be helpful. I also offer my clients the first session for $50 so you can get to know me a bit before committing to working together.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Seeking therapy can be an intimidating and overwhelming process. From acknowledging that you would like more support to searching for the right therapist for you, it takes time, effort, and courage to face your challenges and risk vulnerability. That is why I aim to create a warm, welcoming, and non-judgmental space where you experience trust, safety, and comfort to bring your authentic self into the room. To be vulnerable and open as your true self without fear of judgment is to move towards freedom and expansion.

I especially enjoy working with BIPOC individuals, couples, and families to explore issues of race, sex, gender, culture, and other identity that may be impacting your relationships, work, or overall wellbeing. As a family and couple therapist, I believe problems reside between people and not within them. We will approach your challenges from a relational and systems perspective, putting into consideration the context, environments, and systems we all reside in. You are the center of your story and expert on your life. We will build upon and utilize your innate skills and strengths to better understand and work through your challenges.
