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.

Thanks for taking the time to learn about my clinical practice and how we can work together. Picking a therapist is a very personal choice. You need to feel that your therapist understands your experience, your challenges and moves you to a new way of seeing yourself and your strengths.

I provide psychotherapy for college aged adults, adults and couples. I specialize in treating anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss. I provide a non-judgmental, safe, warm and compassionate place to look at the challenges in your life: the depression that is keeping you isolated, the trauma that makes you withdraw and feel alone, the anxiety that won’t let you sleep at night. We will focus on building on your strengths, teaching you a new set of coping skills, and actively witnessing the reworking of your story.

Before Covid-19 Thor was an integral part of my psychotherapy practice and was present during all my therapy sessions. He is a nine-year-old yellow labrador/golden retriever mix who has been bred and trained as a service dog by Canine Companions for Independence (CCI). Many clients would invite him up on the couch or have him sit close by during a session. It was very common for clients to say that having Thor in the room helped them trust, feel safe, and calm. Thor doesn’t love the video sessions, so he will be with us in spirit.

I look forward to connecting with you!

On a personal note –

I know what it is like to live with stress and anxiety. And I know what it’s like to conquer adversity, to recover from difficult times and to not just heal, but grow. Over the years, I experienced how engaging in therapy, participating in groups, and developing new ways of coping can bring about dramatic changes. None of us needs to live with a level of distress that leaves us feeling bewildered, overwhelmed, or confused about what to do. My personal experience with psychotherapy and mindfulness meditation, as well as my years of experience providing therapy to others has taught me so much. I know that making changes in our thoughts and behaviors can decrease difficulties and increase a sense of well being; leading to less stress and more success.

Bring your whole self to therapy, the parts you let others see, those you don’t and those you may not even be aware of. Through a highly individualized approach, I'm committed to creating a safe space, free of judgment, where you feel seen, listened to and understood; empowered to move forward as you want. Recognizing and building on your strengths and interests to get you where you want to go, feel better about yourself and find your place in the world will be at the heart of our work. Noticing barriers, working with them or moving past them will become possible as you feel stronger, more grounded and equipped with coping and stress management skills.
Using a primarily cognitive approach, I incorporate practical coaching support, leaving space to touch on deeper, existential questions while addressing some of the following concerns: anxiety, depression, executive functioning, understanding and management of sensory sensitivities, social communication skills to negotiate friendships, intimate relationships, school, employment and independent life.
Education about autism and gender, as needed, for individuals and/or parents is often incorporated into the session in an effort to increase self-awareness and enable self-advocacy.
I welcome collaboration with schools and other providers to offer the comprehensive support that is often needed.
It is my privilege to be witness to clients' most private stories and struggles and to celebrate accomplishments of all sizes. I am amazed at the strength and vulnerability that exist in all of us and deeply believe in the power of relationship and connection to hold, support, heal and grow.

I can help you change your relationship with your partner, your family, a friend, or yourself! People are often challenged by difficult emotions or challenging relationships. Instead of facing this task head-on, you may distract yourself with unhealthy habits like over-drinking, improper eating, excessive social media or video game playing. While these techniques may help in the moment, they can make the problem worse. If you are avoiding the challenge, you will not find the peace!

Wouldn't it be nice if you could say: "I have relationships that make me happy; I am present in my life and the lives of others; I treat myself with compassion; I have healthy hobbies; I find my work meaningful, and I feel satisfied with my life."

I use a variety of approaches and I will tailor our work to each individual. Techniques include CBT, EFT and family therapy. My specialties include work-life balance, couples counseling and men’s issues, but I am well-versed in helping with anxiety, depression, adjusting to a life change, and other issues. If you are ready to jump in, call or email today!

Talking about difficulties in a confidential setting can be very helpful, whether you are: 

  • Facing a painful personal or professional issue
  • Dealing with relationship challenges from the past or in the present
  • Feeling depressed, anxious, or confused about the direction or purpose of your life
  • Know you need to make changes and don't know how to go about it

Therapy often provides relief, insight, new perspective, and renewed hope in oneself and in life.
