Are you feeling unfulfilled in your relationships or your life? Have you been struggling with the painful feelings of depression or anxiety? Or are you coping with a major loss, addiction or life transition that has shaken your foundation? I am here to listen and help you hear yourself. I use a lens of core vulnerability to help people understand the role of defense mechanisms and a mindfulness-based approach for understanding why we suffer and how to stop. I am a skilled empathic listener and people tend to like my warm authentic style of respectful questioning and honest feedback.

Unconditional positive regard is at the center of my practice. I’m passionate about helping clients to cultivate personal power and become fully self-expressed. My therapeutic approach is strengths based and I’ll work with you to cultivate your resilience and achieve your goals in therapy.

I work with adults, children, families and couples and offer several therapy and coaching groups. I use mindfulness, expressive therapies, psychodynamic and cognitive therapies and motivational interviewing. Issues include: anxiety, depression, relationship, divorce, intimacy, parenting, ADHD, young adult and teen issues, substance use and trauma.

I encourage you to contact me.
