My practice is honest, compassionate, empowering, and enthusiastic. I am always thinking in terms of larger systems, viewing problems as contextual and historical, although I believe changing individual behavior patterns can positively affect the system as a whole. In therapy, I encourage my clients to look at issues from multiple angles and help them to feel comfortable with ambiguity, complexity, and letting things be messy. I am especially passionate about couples' work and working with teens and their families. I also enjoy working with sexual minorities: people who identify as LGBTQ, kinksters, and intentionally nonmonogamous partners.
You may be longing for moments of closeness and connection that seem too few and far-between. You may be trying to express what you want and being met with anger or defensiveness. You may see your child or teen acting out in ways that are troubling, or retreating further away from you.
Together in therapy, we can help you and your loved ones to move from a place of anger, fear, defensiveness, or reactivity and engage in kind, compassionate communication. We can help you to really see, hear, and feel what the other is saying. Over time, these efforts invite closeness, connection, understanding, and greater love.

Writing is another passion of mine. In the past, I have worked as a writing consultant and offer clients the option of practicing creative writing, journaling, letter-writing, or other art-making during our time together. I believe that writing is "thought made visible" and can be a powerful tool for psychological and spiritual growth. Through language, we can retell our stories and learn to see ourselves in brand new ways.
I am a license-eligible clinician with a Master's degree from the Adler School of Professional Psychology in Chicago, Illinois. I am independently contracted with West Hartford Holistic Counseling Center. Because of my licensure status, I receive outside clinical supervision for my work. During supervision appointments, every effort will be made to respect your privacy and personhood, keeping your case information confidential.
