I'm an individual and relationship therapist with a focus on treatment for adults and adolescents. I have experience working with a wide range of concerns and with people from many backgrounds. I have an aptitude for working with trauma, anxiety, anger, self-criticism, relationship issues, and questions of purpose. I sincerely believe that people are capable of great change.
"Why now?" is a question I often ask at the beginning of therapy. Some people come in the aftermath of a personal or relationship crisis, some seek relief for old pain, others simply feel certain that it is time for a change. My work is well-suited for people experiencing anger, grief, compassion fatigue, trauma reactivity, family or social anxiety, depression, patterns of conflict and concerns of identity. I'm not overwhelmed by strong feelings or complex struggles, and I'm able to stay curious and thoughtful when the problem is a very difficult one. Whatever reason you may have to begin therapy, we'll work together to find the heart of the matter and what might help.
My process is insight-oriented and collaborative but I'll tell you what I think. Clients have appreciated my warmth, directness and cultural competency. I've frequently worked with educators, students, executives, men who are new to therapy, people with creative occupations or passions and those who wish to change how they treat others. Some clients have stayed with me for years and discovered new wishes and goals for therapy; others have returned after long breaks with new energy and readiness. Get in touch, and I can tell you more about how we might work together.
