Has your life been on pause? Do anxiety, depression and low self-esteem keep you stuck, dissatisfied and risk-adverse? If this sounds like you, I can help. As an experienced therapist, I will support you in building your competence and confidence to lead a life with more space and options. My therapeutic approach is a combination of talk therapy, mindfulness and cognitive behavioral techniques. I believe that good therapy not only provides insight, but also gives you the necessary tools you need to intervene, no matter the circumstances you face.

More Info About My Practice

I see individuals and couples. My diverse practice welcomes people from all ethnicities, sexual orientations and backgrounds. I offer a free 20 minute phone consultation for all new clients. I believe that therapy should be accessible and affordable. My rates are reasonable, and I offer a sliding scale.

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

I have an expertise in treating people with anxiety/panic disorders; men who struggle with intimacy and communication in their relationships; women navigating personal and professional balance; survivors of physical, emotional and sexual abuse.

In order for therapy to be successful, it requires a collaborative, trusting relationship between client and therapist along with a commitment to the process. Safety and trust are the foundation of a healing relationship. When that foundation is solid and realized, it becomes easier to take the necessary risks that support change.
