I enjoy being a part of the process of growth for the clients I work with. It is hugely rewarding to see people learn and grow and begin to enjoy their lives more and take better care of themselves.My clients come to me because they want to feel better. Challenging life transitions, poor self-esteem and other stressors can cause us to feel overwhelmed, unable to cope, or that our lives are not the way we want them to be. We can feel trapped in our situation, or stuck in patterns that aren't working for us.

Therapy is a unique opportunity to open up to a caring, connected person who can help us to examine beliefs that can be limiting our options, and begin to try new ways of thinking and relating to others that can help us enjoy life more. Getting the support of an authentic and supportive therapist can help you learn to live a more joyful life.

I help my clients learn to manage anxiety, break through depression, improve their relationships and self-care, and have greater compassion for themselves and others. My style is warm and nonjudgmental.

Areas of specialization include parenting stress and couples seeking greater intimacy. I also work with adults who are too hard on themselves and need to learn self-compassion. I lead a support group for women with postpartum depression, anxiety and adjustment difficulties. I also work with parents to help them make parenting more enjoyable and less stressful.
