My Approach to Helping

Are you feeling stuck? Anxious? Depressed? Therapy is one of the most effective ways to move beyond struggles to feel more satisfied and fulfilled in your life & relationships. I provide cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic psychotherapies in my practice and see patients across the lifespan to work through some of the most personal struggles in their lives. Together we can address problematic behaviors ( insomnia, anger, procrastination), troubling emotions (, anxiety, anger, fear), maladaptive thought patterns ( rumination, worry, self-criticism) and relationship issues (, family, dating). I offer diagnostic evaluation, short and long term psychotherapy, and consultation services. Taking the first step towards approaching your challenges can be scary, and you are taking a big step forward by looking for a therapist.

A trusting and comfortable relationship with your therapist is essential, so I encourage you to visit my professional website and schedule an appointment so we can see if working together might be a good fit. You can schedule an initial appointment online through my website, or by calling or emailing me.

I am an out of network for all insurance providers, and I will assist you in seeking reimbursement from your insurance company.

More Info About My Practice

I enjoy working with patients who are invested in learning more about themselves, and collaboratively exploring their struggles. I have worked in college counseling for the past decade, and have helped many young adults through some of the most important transitions in their lives. The first few sessions are a getting to know you phase, so we can both evaluate whether working together is a good fit. I encourage you to get in touch so we can have an initial discussion.

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

I enjoy working with young adults who are facing transitions in their lives; whether work, relationship, family or otherwise. I also have two specialized areas: working with new and expecting parents around concerns pre and postpartum; and working with athletes (recreational and professional) who have suffered injuries.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

While working for many years in a college counseling center, I became well versed in understanding barriers that people face in deciding whether to pursue mental health services. I am sensitive to the personal, cultural, and societal reasons that one might struggle with the decision to enter therapy. You are taking a big step towards moving beyond issues that are interfering in the life you want by looking for a therapist, and it is a sign of strength to address your struggles. No issue is too big to approach or too small to ask for help. I invite you to schedule a consultation so we can discuss how I might be able to work with you to take steps towards feeling more satisfied in your life.
