My Approach to Helping

Are you feeling stuck, depressed, anxious or just really overwhelmed by the day to day challenges of life? Emotions are complex and it can often be difficult to understand and gain perspective on them on your own. As a therapist, I offer a safe, supportive place to process the feelings that you may keep hidden from others (and sometimes even from yourself). I provide a non-judgmental space for self-reflection, and for gaining deeper insight into your patterns of thoughts and behaviors that prevent you from feeling better. I will help you to use this important information to develop a deeper understanding of yourself to foster personal growth, stronger relationships and a greater sense of fulfillment.

More Info About My Practice

In my practice I take an integrative approach, combining my psychodynamic training with cognitive-behavioral, and mindfulness techniques in a way that is tailored to address each person's individual needs, concerns and goals for change. I also have a special interest in working with women's issues, particularly pertaining to struggles with fertility, pregnancy, the birthing experience, motherhood, and work/family balance.

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

I have seen many people who were initially uncomfortable with the idea of therapy because they felt that seeing a therapist meant there was something "wrong" with them. To me the opposite is true. Everyone experiences difficulties and has areas they would like to improve upon, but it is a strong person who is able to admit this, and who is willing to make him or herself vulnerable, and look deeply at themselves in an effort to grow on an emotional and personal level. It takes courage to decide to face the issues that are arising, instead of ignoring them in the hopes they'll just go away. While it can sometimes be hard work--let's face it, change is often hard at first--I can't think of a more rewarding endeavor, and one that demonstrates incredible emotional strength.
