I am a Licensed Social Worker and Psychotherapist with a Post-Degree Certificate in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy from the American Institute for Psychoanalysis and The Karen Horney Clinic. I provide individual, couples, and family therapy to adolescents, young adults, and adults.

With my caring, nonjudgmental approach, you can feel safe expressing your feelings, fears, wishes, and concerns. Together we'll explore behavioral and relational patterns, and discover how previous life experiences affect your current functioning. Through a supportive, interactive, and encouraging therapeutic relationship, you will gain insight, awareness, and understanding to help alleviate symptoms, manage stressors, and enhance relationships.

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

I support clients in addressing a range of concerns including relationship conflicts, anxiety, depression, trauma, professional difficulties, insecurities, loneliness, grief, and life transitions.

I received specialized training in working with adolescents and families, and provide treatment for family conflict, communication difficulties, behavioral problems, school issues, self-esteem, social skills, self-control, parenting, divorce, and adjusting to change.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

It can be difficult to recognize that you are in need of help and to look for that extra support. If you are able to acknowledge that seeking therapy could be helpful to you, it shows great strength and a true desire to make changes in your life and enhance your well being.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

The client-therapist alliance is an essential part of the therapeutic process. With my understanding, compassionate approach to connecting with people, I have had great success in building strong connections, while providing nonjudgmental support and emotional validation.
