Choosing to begin psychotherapy can feel overwhelming for many people. With time, dedication, additional tools, and a supportive relationship, new options emerge for greater personal well-being and improved interpersonal relationships.

I bring extensive training, compassion, and a sense of humor to the work of personal transformation.

Our behaviors and choices have meaning: in order to change what is not working, it helps to understand the often outdated emotional logic guiding us. Together, we will work to understand underlying distressing symptoms and establish new personal and relational patterns.

Integrating a psychodynamic, attachment, cognitive, and mindfulness approaches, I work in a collaborative and engaged manner.

many people struggle with harsh self-criticism. Learning to soften this internal critic is possible, and is life-changing. 

My priority is to ensure that our relationship feels right for you and to help you identify additional resources whenever necessary.
