The Tribe


Meet Our Family of Experts

Why do we call ourselves a "tribe"?

We believe in community, teamwork and sharing the best of what we all bring to our practice. Each therapist has their special areas of focus and expertise. While respecting confidentiality, our patients are able to get valuable insight and benefits from the entire tribe. All of our Associates work with individuals, couples and families. In addition to our clinical specialties, we also work with the full range of common therapeutic concerns such as, but not limited to, anxiety, depression, grief/mourning, relationships and life changes.


Please take a moment to get to know us better and feel free to contact us directly with any specific questions by using our personal contact form in each of our profile pages.

“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.”

“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 spent the last 8 years providing empathic psychotherapy to youth, adults and their families. 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.”

I approach my work as a therapist with empathy, warmth and humor, and I work collaboratively with my clients towards achieving their personal goals. I want to empower my clients to make desired changes in their lives. I believe that a successful therapeutic relationship starts with a strong connection between my patient and me. Finding the right fit is the most important piece of that puzzle. I believe that each of us is made up of many strengths which, with the right understanding, can be used to work through our vulnerabilities. It is my passion and privilege to help people find their way”.

“Deciding to find a therapist can be exciting and daunting, but finding a therapist that is a good match for you is fulfilling. I believe that therapy is an investment in your well being and health. Whether you have decided to seek therapy during a time of major life transition, difficulties with managing your emotions or trying to understand your experiences and aspects of your identity, therapy can offer a safe space to explore your life, gain clarity and develop practical strategies to live a rich, meaningful life. I am committed to working collaboratively with you as a validating, non-judgemental support.”

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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. "
