About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    My clients have described me as warm, welcoming, engaging, open, safe, honest, encouraging, and easy to trust and relate with.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    Emotions you struggle with in beginning therapy are accepted in this space. We will discuss autonomy and boundaries and provide a safe space for you to heal. Both acceptance of the past and effort to move toward the future will bring healing.

  • Together, we will:

    Learn about one another, identify what to focus on, and collaboratively choose approaches that utilize your strengths, complement your disposition, and treat what brought you to therapy. Through this process I hope we can transmute pain into peace.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    As I move forward in my career, I am transitioning from short-term crisis interventions to long-term therapeutic relationships. I enjoy working with clients to improve emotional regulation, communication, relationships and/or sex lives, or trauma.

  • I became a therapist because:

    Like many therapists, I also have my own mental health issues—as they say, it takes one to know one.

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

    I'm a member of the Resilience Lab — the largest community of clinicians working collaboratively to produce better outcomes and improve mental health.

  • More about me and my practice:

    We share space as equals, and I’m very friendly. But boundaries are important–this is your therapy, not chats with a friend. I’ll likely laugh at your jokes, but I’m also going to need us to stop so we can find what they are conveying or hiding.
