My Approach to Helping

Am I doing it right? Shouldn't I feel something more than this? My life is pretty good, and I think I should feel more grateful. But sometimes I look around and wonder, is this really all there is? No, no, I should be happier. What do I have to complain about? Yet still... sometimes, I just can't help but wonder. I can help you work through this. My style is compassionate yet direct, soft yet forceful. I particularly enjoy working with neurodiverse clients, adolescents, couples, and members of the LGBTQIA+ Community.

I incorporate somatic therapy as well as talk therapy, all in the service of your healing. I also offer Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy. Visit my website at for more information.

Contact me for a complimentary 15-20 minute phone call to help me understand more about that feeling you have. You'll receive thoughtful feedback and feel my presence and desire to understand. I will listen to you and provide guidance. If we're a good fit, we will set up a time for you to come in to get the process started. You\'re on the right track.

Groups I Work With

    I help busy professionals who find themselves asking, “Is this it?” Together, we work through that anxiety, that concern that, even though your life looks good on paper, you might be missing out on something. I give you an empathetic, non-judgmental space to explore your feelings and come to greater understanding. And, I get it. I can help you through the process because it’s one I’ve been through myself. It gets easier, and you’re not alone.
    I specialize in working with work stress, relationship challenges, and anxiety. I have a grounded presence and non-judgmental stance that will help guide you to a place of greater understanding. I offer direct feedback while being compassionate. Working with me is really like being on a journey together, and I'm excited about where it will take us.
    I previously worked as a corporate attorney. This gives me a unique insight into the corporate world and the particular dynamics and stressors that exist within it. I know what you're going through because I've been through it myself. I also know how work stress can play into relationship challenges, whether you're single or in a relationship.
