About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    My clients feel that I understand what they are experiencing, their thoughts, feelings; they feel comfortable with me, that I can empathize w/them.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    Therapy sessions with me are warm and supportive. They are structured, but informal. A space that promotes mutual respect and constructive conversation. The work that we will do is not easy; it takes time/patience, but the results are worth it.

  • Together, we will:

    This is your session; you identify what you want to gain from therapy and the goals you want to achieve. We would then begin to explore the contributing factors that led to where you are utilizing Schema Therapy, CBT and Motivational Interviewing.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    I work with adults, age 21 to 45 and families who have experienced life-altering events, are experiencing feelings of anxiety/depression and are overwhelmed. They have to start over and re-invent themselves, but may not know where they want to begin.

  • I became a therapist because:

    I chose to become a therapist to help those in emotional pain, to support those who have to decide what to do in the next phase of their lives.

  • Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:

    All sessions are virtual, from the comfort of your home. This may be a benefit to those who would rather go home, rather than travel to an office.

  • More about me and my practice:

    I am most passionate about working with adults and families that have to chart a new course in life. We can work together to achieve the future that you envision for yourself and your family. It' brings me joy to see your transformation.
