I am a warm, caring and insightful licensed psychotherapist, who works with clients to help identify and understand areas of challenge and gain the insight and the coping skills to overcome them. I believe that empathy and a nonjudgmental space are two of the most powerful tools in helping clients affect change. I specialize in working with individuals dealing with issues around transitions such as the loss of a loved one, entering/leaving school, divorce, remarriage, entering the job market, deciding on a career path, coming out as LGBTQ, and being a new parent, among others.
I have worked with adults and children in a variety of settings, and will tailor sessions and therapy goals to meet each individual client's needs. Using family systems and psychodynamic approaches, I help clients gain perspective about problem areas through understanding the context that helped to create them. Using mindfulness-based and cognitive behavioral interventions, I help clients develop coping skills to align their behavior with their goals and their values.
