My approach:

Our work together is designed to create an actionable plan that will lead to greater contentment in your life. We all experience challenge, often around our relationships, our work, our health, and caring for our children and loved ones. These experiences can provoke anxiety, fear and uncertainty. Having a safe, nonjudgmental space in which to work through these moments can be profoundly helpful and can often facilitate swifter resolution.




The relative success of psychotherapy depends in large part on the nature of the relationship between a client and her or his therapist. Please feel free to connect me directly via phone or email to see if we might be a good fit, and to learn about rates. I do not accept insurance at this time.
