Emotional suffering results when we are not sure how to cope with difficult feelings, thoughts, relationships and life circumstances. Feelings themselves are challenging to change, but through therapy you can learn new skills and perspectives and how to respond to your feelings in a manner that encourages lasting change.

Therapeutic Style

I strive to create an environment that you'll find warm, welcoming, and free of judgment. I believe your treatment should be crafted with you, based on the particular challenges you want to address. I'll draw on my knowledge of cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy and interpersonal therapy to guide our work. Many of these methods use mindfulness—both as a tool and a way of life—as a means of coping with difficult emotions.

What to expect

When you come for our first meeting, we'll talk about your history, what has led you to look for support now, and what you hope to get out of the process. At each session (usually weekly for 45 or 60 minutes) we'll work towards those goals together. I believe a strong therapeutic relationship is mutual, so your feedback about our work is always encouraged. I offer short and long-term services. Though I focus on individual therapy, if you are interested in couples or family therapy and think we may be a fit, please call me as I am happy to explore these options with you.
