My goal is to provide an environment that makes you feel safe and enables you to express yourself openly about anything that you need to talk about. It is so important to have at least one person in your life that you can talk to without being "on" or having to worry about what you say. I will strive to understand you and to help you understand yourself.
I am here to listen and support you through whatever you are going through and to work with you to see aspects of the situation that you may not be fully aware of. We will work on understanding your unique challenges and developing your hidden strengths. We all get stuck in patterns of behavior that could use some revision. We will work on your becoming conscious of the motivations behind your behaviors and determine healthier ways of meeting the needs that the behaviors are satisfying in the moment that get in the way of who you really are and what you truly want.

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.
