I help adults, adolescents, and couples experience life more deeply; enjoy more satisfying relationships; resolve painful conflicts; and improve self-esteem, self-worth and emotional well-being.
I have a general private practice and specialize in anxiety, depression, addiction, relationships, and grief. I also help people prepare for big life changes and transitions (such as marriage, the birth or adoption of a child, starting college, adjusting to a new move, career change, etc.).
I aim for a reduction in a client's current symptoms, and provide an opportunity to address the broader and potentially more enduring changes in life roles and behaviors. This can require balanced attention to the importance of past events as well as the here and now.
My approach is collaborative, interactive, and supportive. I emphasize the growth and process of the client-therapist relationship by creating a safe, confidential, respectful and healing interpersonal environment.
