My Approach to Helping

We all have a fundamental need to be heard and seen. Hopefully, if we’re lucky, we have people in our lives who meet this need, at least some of the time. But sometimes it’s necessary to bring in someone extra – either as a resource for safe and private conversations, or as a leader to help us with a necessary change. This is where I come in.

My background balances research-driven and scientifically minded psychology with a holistic, systemic, and presence-based approach to therapy. I use this background to help my clients expand their understanding of self by tuning in to the notes of their experience they may not be used to hearing. For some that may look like guiding a highly cognitive person into their emotional world, and for others that may look like guiding a highly emotive person into a new way of thinking. But whatever patterns you find yourself in, I can be a guide in expanding your range.

Stylistically, I hold an empirically rooted understanding of human behavior with a compassionate appreciation for how challenging it can become to just live in a human body. I also often use humor in my counseling, but have discovered this is difficult to communicate on a website without sounding disingenuous. (Trust me though, I'm funny!)

If this sounds like something you might be interested in, let’s meet. During our consultation, I will get to hear what you’re looking for, and you’ll get to hear what I can offer you, specifically. Visit my website for more information, or reach out through GoodTherapy, and let’s see if I’m the right person for what you need right now.

More Info About My Practice

Anxiety is a slippery beast. In many contexts, it's extremely helpful. It motivates us to prepare for an upcoming presentation or exam. It helps us perform well when it matters most. It keeps us focused on safety and reminds us to prepare for the future. Sometimes though, it gets out of hand.

A drive to succeed can become perfectionism, where expectations become unrealistic and a failure to meet them brings intense suffering. Life's bumps can overwhelm with stress, and keep us up at night trying to plan for every possible future. Selflessness can become the law of the land, where needs go constantly unmet because of the fear of judgment. If you're suspicious of the role anxiety is playing in your life, visit my website for more information or reach out to schedule a free consultation.

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

I am particularly skilled at working with professional men and women interested in reorganizing their relationships with their inner worlds in order to achieve peace alongside their busy lives. I often work with first-timers to therapy who are looking to improve their psychological wellbeing generally, or make changes alongside a life transition.

Groups I Work With

    My clients are predominantly successful, achievement-oriented adults and teens who find themselves struggling with either an accumulation of stress and anxiety, or who have become overwhelmed by a life transition. They are typically the types of individuals who hold themselves to a high standard of performance in their work (or studies) and their lives, but the pressure to keep up has become unbearable and they want to do something differently. This individual marks a general archetype for my clients, but I do not work exclusively with this type of person. If this doesn't describe you but you're still curious, visit my website for more information or reach out to schedule a consultation so we can meet to discuss what you're seeking in person.
