“Therapy is a process that promotes growth, healing, and change by examining who we are, where we have come from, and how we act with others and in the world. This work is made possible by establishing an atmosphere of safety and acceptance in which to explore the full-range of human experiences, especially those that confront us and contribute to problems in day-to-day life.”

I have significant experience working with mood, anxiety, and attachment issues in children, adolescents, and adults. I am excited about working with young people and their guardians to address issues related to the unfolding responsibilities and opportunities of becoming independent people. I have worked with diverse groups of all ages and backgrounds. 

I work with people on a wide range of issues. The following are a few of my specialties (this list is not all-inclusive):

  • Mood Disorders

  • Attachment Issues

  • Relationship Issues

  • Personality Disorders

  • Body-Related Problems

  • Gender, Identity, and Sexuality Questions  

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?

Whether you are looking to address specific goals or have only a general sense that your life is not being lived as you would hope, psychotherapy offers the opportunity to explore these issues in an atmosphere of safety, privacy, and acceptance. One can come as one is. Examples of the types of issues for which psychotherapy is indicated include: anxiety, depression, trauma, relationships, sexuality and intimacy, work and career, grief, parenting, religion and spirituality, and more. 

While it can be difficult, the most important step is the first (an inch gained now can make a mile later). I am happy to discuss apprehensions and concerns at the outset of our work together and as needed.
