My Approach to Helping

It takes courage to seek help for your personal struggles, and it takes persistence to keep trying. I learned this myself as a young college student facing painful life challenges. The help my own therapist offered me inspired me to offer assistance to others.

I have more than 27 years of experience working with adults and adolescents in individual and family settings. I offer a well-trained ear to listen to your problems, as well as caring, warmth, and the ability to ask the right questions. My office is a safe and confidential place that allows you to explore painful losses, anxiety, relationship challenges, past trauma and pain, and unhealthy habits. I maintain healthy boundaries while being genuine and empathetic.

Although I've been practicing for many years, I believe that life is a learning process and education never ends. I work in consultation with supervisors and colleagues so that I remain up-to-date on the most effective treatments.

I'll do everything I can to offer you the help you seek, but if there is a way in which I can't assist you, I'll help you find the resources you need. Please feel free to reach out with any questions, and know that I admire the bravery it takes to embark on the path toward healing and change.

More Info About My Practice

I have practiced psychotherapy and psychoanalysis for over 2 decades. In the past few years, I've begun to approach healing from a more holistic perspective including neurofeedback and breathing techniques, along with other approaches. I'm certified as an Accelerated Resolution Therapy, which is an excellent modality to address trauma and other issues which result in nervous system dysregulation. Please feel free to reach out with any questions if you believe this might be a fit for you.
