About me

Through empathic listening, warmth, humor, and genuine engagement, I help people gain insight into their unique ways of thinking and operating and then work to build up strong, self-affirming thoughts and compassionate feelings to combat negative patterns. Therapy is hard work, but so worth the investment!

How I work with parents

I specialize in working with individuals going through difficult life transitions such as fertility issues, pregnancy, perinatal mood/anxiety, parenting, divorce, military deployment, career changes, and loss.

I emphasize the therapeutic relationship as a tool for transformation of problematic habits into adaptive and fulfilling ones.
