My practice offers psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral therapy to help patients move beyond roadblocks towards personal growth. I see patients across the lifespan and have been privileged to help people work through some of the most personal struggles in their lives. Together we can address problematic behaviors (e.g. insomnia, anger, procrastination), troubling emotions (e.g. depression, anxiety, anger, fear), maladaptive thought patterns (e.g. rumination, worry, self-criticism) and relationship issues (e.g. work, family, dating).

I work with people on a wide range of issues including, but not limited to:

  • Relationship Struggles

  • Stress

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Life Transitions

  • Women’s Mental Health/Reproductive Mental Health

  • Parenting Struggles

  • Trauma

If I have never been to therapy before, what should I expect? How do I know if I should go, and how do I start?

People start therapy for so many different reasons. Recognizing that something isn’t feeling quite right, and taking steps towards doing something about it is a sign of strength. There really is no rule for knowing when or why to start therapy…
