About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    Warm, empathetic, creative and kind. I am an engaged conversation partner with a strong grasp of metaphor and a good sense of humor.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    I'm not particularly interested in problem-solving or in teaching coping skills, but neither will I sit back silently and nod away a session, forcing you to monologue. Instead I have a very conversational and relational style. It makes our work fun.

  • Together, we will:

    Find new perspectives and ways of making sense of the challenges you're facing. Whether dealing with the storms of fresh grief, continually anxious or depressed, or simply finding yourself bored in relationships and life, I can help.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    Are overwhelmed by or apathetic about what life has thrown at them. I help folks who are worried, anxious and trying their best to hold things together to let go for a while, reevaluate and find more sustainable ways of moving through their lives.

  • I became a therapist because:

    I am truly fascinated by people. I love connecting through rich, meaningful conversation and I love learning about the depths each person contains.

  • More about me and my practice:

    Much of my approach consists of facilitating the openness and vulnerability necessary to untangle the knots we so often find ourselves in. Through engaged exploration, humor and kindness we can creatively find new paths through old problems.
