My primary methods of practice are Psychodynamic and Interpersonal.

I believe that feelings and behaviors have a purpose and the therapist-client relationship we develop together is essential to the healing process.
I listen deeply to the thoughts and feelings you share about present concerns and past experiences.
I help you see patterns you’re not aware of and give you the tools to express yourself in ways you haven’t imagined.

There is a light at the end of even the darkest tunnel. To find it you just need to know where to look.

Together, we’ll explore why you do the things you do as well as why you feel the way you feel. You’ll gain an in-depth understanding of not only who you are, but who you can be. The pain of the past will subside, and a better future will emerge where you’ll embrace the freedom to make better choices and the confidence to see them through. I value the therapeutic relationship and invite you to share your thoughts and reactions to the time we spend together.

I’ve also received extensive training in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Anxiety Disorders, Grief as well as Meditation and Mindfulness Practices.

I’d be happy to answer any questions.
