Are you feeling unhappy, but can't seem to navigate the path forward? Are you having difficulty communicating or making progress with your partner? If you are visiting this page, you are most likely curious about the therapeutic process and what it could do for you. I believe that if you feel comfortable talking to your therapist of choice, and your therapist is highly skilled in treating the areas you are struggling with, you can make significant and lasting changes to your life and your relationships.
I help individuals & couples uncover new and more satisfying ways of being and relating to others. In creating an atmosphere of safety and trust, I aim to help people identify the source of their struggles and make lasting improvements to their situation.
Some of the concerns that I often treat in my practice are: anxiety & depression, loss & grief, loneliness, perfectionism, relationship issues, communication problems, sexual issues, affairs/ infidelity, desire/ intimacy in long-term relationships, as well as major life transitions such as getting married or adjusting to parenthood.
My style is warm, compassionate, and interactive. I received advanced training from the Ackerman Institute for the Family and the New York Center for Emotionally Focused Therapy. I am also a certified Gottman Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work Educator and a Bringing Baby Home Educator.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
It's a little bit different for everyone since therapy services are tailored to meet the needs of a particular individual or couple. In general, therapy can provide:
-a deeper understanding of the underlying dynamics informing the presenting concerns
-a greater sense of self-awareness and self-confidence
-a space to heal from a painful past experience
-the skills to navigate relational conflict with ease
-valuable insights into your unique relational patterns and how to impove them
Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
While it's common to prioritize education and training when selecting a therapist, research shows us that one of the most important factors that impacts whether "therapy really works" is the fit between client(s) and therapist. Fit can include both orientation/ treatment approach and personality. For example, if a therapist trained at a highly prestigious program, has several degrees, and specializes in the issues you're facing, but when you speak with the person or attend the initial consultation you feel uneasiness about sharing your true self, or you find it difficult to talk to the person in some way, it may not be a good fit.
Therapy is a very personal and intimate process. Often, you are sharing parts of yourself that you do not typically talk about with others. While it almost always takes time to establish trust and build a level of comfort, if you're feeling very inhibited with a therapist from the start, it's a good idea to trust your feelings. You should feel comfortable imagining that you will continue working with that person.
