"Finding just the right therapist can be a stressful process, but when you find one, it can be an exciting time for growth and change. I believe that therapy is a personal gift to yourself as you raise awareness and grow in meaningful ways. Whether you are seeking therapy because you are at a crossroads about your future, having relationship concerns, struggling with moods, or just trying to understand your past or present life, the therapy experience must bring you a sense of safety and comfort. I am deeply committed to offering a non-judging, accepting and safe experience."

"We go through life day by day doing what we are familiar with. Then we hit a wall and realize we would like to change our way of reacting to situations and people, switch career, develop life goals and interest, adopt other parenting styles, change our habits, etc. I truly believe that having someone to help you explore your self, to understand how your past affects you or what affects you to react in certain ways, why you feel certain feelings or feel disjointed can be an enlightening journey. Being a therapist is an honor because I get to embark on this journey with you to discover your sense of self and help you be whole and have a calmer and content life. I look forward to creating a partnership and walk together towards the light."

"I am a therapist who works with individuals and couples. I have a background in community mental health and in the medical setting; my approach to psychotherapy draws from a variety of theoretical perspectives. People usually come to a therapist seeking help dealing with unhappiness, anxiety, depression or relationship conflict. This distress can be due to situations in their current life, their history, or both. They want someone to listen, to understand and accept their feelings, someone who with warmth and support can help them to better understand the reasons for their distress and with professional guidance can help them to create positive change."

"Making the decision to start psychotherapy is not always easy, and people often find reasons to talk themselves out of it. Though potentially difficult, that choice can also prove exciting in that it offers the opportunity to heal, to instill hope, and to improve an understanding of oneself and others. My clients tell me that I possess a calm and warm demeanor and that I make them feel heard and not judged. I provide a safe and respectful space for individuals and families to process their experiences. Together, clients and I can explore concerns, collaborate to find solutions, and discover ways to better address and cope with new stressors if and when they arise."

"Entering into a therapeutic relationship can be complicated decision, but it is also a courageous step that can bring healing and development. In my practice, I am committed to creating conditions that lay the groundwork for my clients to reach the goals they set for themselves. I believe therapeutic work is best practiced in an environment that is safe, empathic, compassionate, and non-judgmental — as these are the essential conditions for facilitating positive and long-term growth. Thus, whether you are seeking therapy for the first time or are returning for continued support, it is my hope to maintain an atmosphere where you can continually feel accepted and valued."

"Secure your own oxygen mask before assisting others. We hear that every time we fly. But this same mantra can be applied to our personal lives and how we manage the various challenges that life presents. While we cannot always change the environment in which we live, we can implement positive internal changes in how we live, how we interact with that environment, and how we conduct ourselves -- all toward the goal of living our lives in happier, more fulfilling ways. My mission as a therapist is to provide a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental venue for you to feel empowered so that in the face of life’s challenges, your oxygen mask is always secure."
"Congratulations on completing the first step of a difficult process. Realizing you need help and seeking treatment is not easy to handle alone. I will take the steps with you throughout the process and provide the comfort necessary for you to succeed. I will provide a safe, nonjudgmental environment and help you achieve your desired goals. I have extensive experience in weight loss and obesity as well as mood disorders, anxiety disorders, substance abuse and psychosis."

"We all encounter moments in our lives that test our capacity to cope, and may cause us to feel ungrounded or overwhelmed. Whether you are struggling with issues of depression, anxiety, intimacy/relationship concerns, family struggles, life transitions, or simply feel like you need a space to talk through the things weighing heavily on your mind and heart, I intend to create a safe and supportive environment to explore the issues impacting you"

There is profound strength in wanting to make a change in your life. Realizing that you have the power to seek help, and then making a choice to act upon this realization is no small step.
My goal is to understand you as an individual - strengths, challenges, and the many various aspects of your identity that feel important to you. I work with adults of all backgrounds who struggle with depression, anxiety and mood disorders. I also work with clients around transitions and major life changes. I also enjoy working with clients who may be struggling with their identity, finding their voice and finding new ways to see themselves.
My hope is that through our work together you can feel supported and encouraged to make changes in your life, whether those changes are large or small, singular or numerous. Perhaps those changes have already happened, and you need support around adjusting to those changes. Whatever the case may be, I hope that I have this opportunity to assist you in a way that feels supportive and empowering.

Life presents each of us with moments of stress, confusion, transition and loss. We all have ways in which we cope with these moments. Therapy can be an enlightening, yet gentle way to weather life’s stormy chapters while improving our ability to cope.

I have experience using play therapy, individual therapy, and family therapy, and am dedicated to helping others find their own path to personal fulfillment. I am continually motivated by the extraordinary growth and change that can take place when the right space for reflection and support is found and I am committed to creating a warm, inviting and funny therapeutic environment for you and your children.

Often what we endure in our lives can make the future cloudy and seeking help difficult. Acknowledging that you desire change is often the first step towards clarity. Beyond this many may find that they need further guidance, which is what has likely brought you here. I believe it is important for my clients to recognize and then use their strengths, past successes, supportive relationships (including the therapeutic one), and own hopes to obtain whatever goal they set forth. Moving forward I hope to build a strong, supportive, open therapeutic relationship which we can use to find your way through the fog to a self-fulfilling and clear future.

“Ernest Hemingway wrote 'The world breaks everyone and afterward some are strong at the broken places.'I believe in each person's inherent strength and health.The problem could be that what worked when a person was under extreme stress has stopped working.In fact, that approach to coping might be more hurtful than helpful at this point.No shame in that!Together, we will work together to uncover your strengths, understand the influence people and situations have had on you and craft new ways of being.When I teach in graduate schools or workshops, I rarely use the word 'client.'Instead, I say 'people I have been honored to work with.'”

"I don't know one person who doesn't want to be understood. I believe there is an undeniable need that everyone has to connect with someone or something, on some deeper level. It could be a desire to connect with a person or an idea or with a higher power. Whatever it is that you're seeking, can be found through therapy. This shared experience has the opportunity to enlighten, dig deep, and teach as well as give way to the possibility to see success and fulfillment of goals through self-awareness and determination. My desire is to help others find the connection that makes them feel they have purpose and worth. I look forward to joining you in the journey!"

"As someone who loves to read and learn, one of my favorite authors is the master psychiatrist Irvin Yalom. In his book entitled “The Gift of Therapy,” he so eloquently depicts the essence of how I see the therapeutic relationship and how therapy can be a gift to both clients and therapists. For me, therapy is indeed just that: a gift - a gift that you give yourselfto build upon the strengths you already possess. Whether your goal is to gain greater understanding and insight, reduce symptoms, lessen suffering, or increase your ability to cope with life stress, I am deeply committed to helping you in a compassionate, non-judgmental way along the path to reaching your full potential.

"So many times when we struggle, we just need some space between ourselves and the things that are hard for us. Being able to sit with a trusted therapist to create some healthy space which allows us to really look at what is happening allows us to shift. Perhaps it is a shift in outlook, a shift in behavior, a shift in perspective. Sometimes that comes as an “Aha!” moment and sometimes it is as simple as an “Ahhhh” moment. Whatever it takes that allows for a growth is where I find great meaning in working with people. I look forward to seeing what moments can be created with you!”

"I work to create a space without judgments were clients can learn, heal and grow. Every client I meet comes with their own set of gifts, challenges, supports and dreams. No one tells the same story as another… and I welcome the distinctiveness of each client. Entering therapy can be a frightening process. I take great pride in my ability to create a safe space to partner with each client uniquely. "

"We are like islands in the sea. Separate on the surface but connected in the deep -- William James
Reaching out is often the beginning of an enriching journey towards growth and understanding. Therapy is like taking a personal journey and identifying challenges, strengths and capacity for growth and connection. Healing happens in many ways. Being able to share this process with others is a privilege. I look forward to meeting people who are curious about their own experience and how to expand their understanding. Setting your own goals allows for a unique power as you decide what you will bring into your future. Being able to assist and bear witness to such a journey is the reason I love being a therapist. I look forward to seeing what your journey will be. "
