At different times in our lives we can feel stuck and struggle with finding our way. Oftentimes, our usual ways of dealing with these struggles aren't helping or may even be preventing us from feeling better. I work with individuals who are dealing with loss and trauma, sadness and anxiety or having difficulties in relationships, work, school, parenting, and varying life-stage transitions. In this safe, supportive and warm environment we will work together to help you feel better while also understanding what is causing your distress.

Most people seek therapy when they are unhappy with one or more aspects of their lives. Whether you are struggling with work, love, family or self – you might be wondering, what will really help? I believe that understanding yourself is a great gift and a power. We as people are complicated beings. It takes effort and focused attention to parse out our complexity. It takes will and bravery to face ourselves; our lives, our pasts, presents and futures. It also takes intention to appreciate our strengths and recognize the areas that need strengthening. In my practice, I will help you to discover what aspects of your current life and functioning are working well and what aspects no longer serve you. Together we will explore what you want, why you want, the obstacles in your way and how to overcome them. We start where you are and work on your goals, paying special attention to your evolution over the course of treatment. My goals, as your therapist are to gently facilitate your growth and to create a warm, sincere and safe environment that fosters trust, honesty, openness and authenticity.

Our clinicians are real people who work closely with you on your evolving goals. We seek to accompany you on your road to self-discovery and improvement and aim to expand your awareness and improve your quality of life.

My faith in the therapeutic process is founded in the belief that we each have the ability to access more of what can provide comfort and clarity in our lives. Intention, curiosity and a devotion to a greater happiness are the basic tools needed to kindle profound change. Experiencing 'stuck-ness,' repetitive negative patterns, self-doubt, loss and fear can make common obstacles seem insurmountable, and cloud the path to our hopes for the future. With a non-judgmental and alert presence, the vague often becomes lucid, and confusion can give way to acceptance and understanding—with ourselves and towards others.
My interest is in simplicity of being, and in cultivating what we do that is of service, while looking with a spirit of inquiry at whatʼs not working. What is the relationship of form to function in our lives, and how can we manifest a more purposeful design? It is my most sincere hope that I can aid in supporting a natural awareness that is the key to living a fulfilled expression of our own authenticity, integrity and joy.
I specialize in life transitions, relationships, loss, identity, sexuality, creativity, fear, anxiety, spirituality and existential isolation. My work is with couples and individuals, with the collaborative goal of helping you find more effective ways to be happy, and tapping your existing resources to weather the ever-shifting currents of life.

The weight of emotional pain can be unbearable and lonely. It is difficult, impossible even, to envision feeling better, feeling fulfilled, feeling connected or just feeling like yourself again.

Seeking therapy is one of the most compassionate things you can do for yourself, and can be a true turning point in your life. But it can also feel uncomfortable to talk to someone you don't know well.

I understand that. Like all therapists, I have been in therapy myself, and I remember all too clearly my fears about starting: Would my therapist push me to reveal too much, too quickly? Would he sit back in silence and leave me feeling helpless, like the psychoanalysts in movies? Were my concerns even "serious" enough to justify getting into therapy? And most important: how could I feel safe and comfortable with someone I hadn’t even met yet?

Your comfort with me and with the process are incredibly important to me. Clients consistently describe me as someone who is committed to helping them work on the issues they find difficult; someone who is experienced, but always open to feedback; someone with a good sense of humor; someone who will stay with them when the process gets tough and even painful; and someone who is on their side, in every way possible.

Therapy can benefit almost anyone, so even if you're not sure about it, I encourage you to reach out to me. Let's talk about it together, and see if and how I can help.
