The first step to a productive therapy experience is creating a supportive and safe environment where people can begin to wonder about themselves and the changes they would like to make. Through empathy, warmth and insight I have helped many people who feel ambivalent about the therapy process gain confidence, clarity and self-awareness. By sharing their stories, my clients not only understand the events that brought them to this moment in time, but how to actively write their own stories. I have experience working with people of all ages with depression, anxiety, trauma histories, adjustment disorders and bereavement.
I am adept at helping young adults deal with issues related to identity and intimacy- both dominant issues during this life stage. Common themes include relationship issues, job satisfaction, gender identity, sexual orientation and processing trauma. My advanced training in child and adolescent therapy has enhanced my work with youth and families
