My Approach to Helping

I work with adults who feel depressed, anxious, lonely, ashamed, stigmatized, othered, or “not good enough.” Areas of expertise include existential concerns about one’s purpose and finding meaning; struggles with sexism/misogyny; and challenges around reproductive issues (infertility, miscarriage, traumatic labor/delivery, postpartum depression).

My therapeutic practice is humanistic, existential, and feminist, grounded by a social psychological perspective on human beings as situated within their social worlds. I seek to engage in therapy that is collaborative, respectful, and caring. My philosophy is that human beings are not easily categorized or labeled and that therapy works to alleviate suffering via building a therapeutic relationship based on trust, rapport, and the patient’s sense of being truly seen, heard and understood for who they are.

I explore the past with patients to examine the ways that previous life experiences, particularly with one’s family of origin, influence us as adults in how we perceive, interpret, and interact with others in our current lives. Dreams, slips and foibles, and whatever it is that you find funny will also be grist for the mill. I am known to have a hearty laugh.

Currently accepting new patients.
