My practice offers psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral therapies to help patients move beyond roadblocks towards personal growth. I see patients across the lifespan to work through some of the most personal and intimate struggles in their lives. Together we can address problematic behaviors (e.g. insomnia, anger, procrastination), troubling emotions (e.g.depression, anxiety, anger, fear), maladaptive thought patterns (e.g. rumination, worry, self-criticism) and relationship issues (, family, dating). I offer diagnostic evaluation, short and long term psychotherapy, and consultation services. Taking the first step towards approaching your challenges can be scary. Looking for a therapist is the first step towards improving your capacity to deal with life changes and develop insight. A trusting and comfortable relationship with your therapist is essential, which is integrated into discussions throughout our work together.
I am an out of network for all insurance providers, and I will assist you in seeking reimbursement from your insurance company.

More Info About My Practice

I enjoy working with patients who are invested in learning more about themselves, and collaboratively exploring their struggles. I have worked in college counseling for the past decade, and have helped many young adults through some of the most important transitions in their lives. It would be a privilege for me to get to know your struggles and to see if we can work together.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I have two specialized areas in my practice:

Maternal Mental Health and Parent Consultation:
For expecting/new/seasoned parents, some of the issues I frequently help with are: Concerns about becoming a parent, postpartum blues, depression or anxiety, sleep issues, feeding issues, sibling adjustment to a new baby, single parenting, spousal conflict or tension, behavior issues, separation anxiety, sleep issues, eating struggles, sibling rivalry, and developmental delays

Wellness Coaching:
I am the wellness coach for Full Spectrum Fitness (a personal training company). I work closely with personal trainers to help people evaluate readiness for change, increase confidence in your ability to reach your fitness or weight loss goals, set realistic fitness goals, identify health habits, identify barriers, or develop a plan for change

* These are some examples of issues commonly faced. Feel free to contact me regarding any issue you are facing.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

While working for many years in a college counseling center, I became well versed in understanding barriers that people face in deciding whether to pursue mental health services. I am sensitive to the personal, cultural, and societal reasons that one might struggle with the decision to enter therapy. You are taking a big step towards moving beyond issues that are interfering in the life you want by looking for a therapist, and it is a sign of strength to address your struggles. No issue is too big to approach or too small to ask for help. I invite you to schedule a consultation so we can discuss how I might be able to work with you to take steps towards feeling more satisfied in your life.
