As a therapist, my intent is to help you recover from whatever is standing in the way of you feeling your best. Oftentimes, this may be symptoms and feelings associated with depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship challenges, work related stress, and life transitions such as adjustment to college, divorce, parenthood or preparing for retirement.

My goal is to create a safe, compassionate space where we can work together to help you heal and feel “unstuck.”

I will help you feel safe to share your pain, confront your fears and insecurities, mourn your loss, identify your unique strengths and help you learn to embrace your truth. It is most important to me that you feel heard, validated, and supported.

I acknowledge how difficult it is to make to the decision to come to therapy. Seeking support for emotional or personal challenges is an act to bravery. I realize how stigmatized strong emotions are in our society, and at times we may feel shame for crying. In my practice I aim to serve as a platform free of judgement that allows you to speak your deepest pain and discomfort. To support you in establishing a channel of communication between your body and your mind.

Every human being struggles to find meaning in life and to learn how to better love oneself and others. This is essential work. Often we suffer when we have lost sight of who we are and what we most want out of life. Therapy can help you find yourself again and provide safety and direction in times of difficulty. At its best, it can help you recover a vibrant sense of joy in being alive.
For anyone new to therapy: Take the plunge. Interview perspective therapists. Therapy works best when you are comfortable and feel connected to the therapist. Don't let fear or a lack of motivation stop you from finding the right person and taking a step toward feeling better.
