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.

All people deserve to live a life that is fulfilling, empowered, and free. Often, due to the trauma of daily living and greater challenges we are cut-off from our own source of wisdom and feel stymied and stuck. In a day and age that values product over process, mind over body, and quick-fix techniques more than in-depth healing, we leave a lot of our pain—and a lot of our story unexplored. My approach to psychotherapy is appropriate for anyone and everyone seeking better to understand themselves, transform their choices, and create life-shifts no matter how big or small.
