About My Clients

My clients are professional women. They're successful, driven, go-getters in their professional life, but they're also struggling--often silently--with emotional challenges in their personal life. Does this sound like you? My clients are ready for growth and change. They're ready to step off the emotional merry-go-round and get unstuck. They want to be successful *and* happy. And they want a safe, deeply affirming space in which to make their positive transformations happen.

My Background and Approach

I'm a licensed clinical psychologist with over 20 years of experience. My approach to therapy is one of deep listening, gentle curiosity, & supportive empathy. I practice from and I’m informed by a generally psychodynamic perspective when conceptualizing what may be going on for you, factoring into consideration early childhood experiences, relationship histories and attachment patterns, as well as your current levels of functioning and current areas of your perceived ‘stuckness’. That being said, in our work together, my style is therapeutically integrative and intuitive, which means I use proven, evidence-based techniques from different therapies including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical-Behavioral Therapy (DBT) Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), as well as mindfulness techniques & an insight-oriented approach when appropriate to help you gain more emotional ease. My goal is to help you enhance your self-understanding & for you to embrace your best life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe there’s absolutely no room for me to be judgmental in our work together and I am all about being validating, caring and approachable. I’m down to earth and I show up authentically so that you know you always have a partner on your journey of self-discovery and transformation. And I recognize that while I may be the professional with extensive education and training, you are truly the expert of you. I firmly believe you have the answers you need to heal yourself within you, and I strive to hold a space in which we can co-create an environment where you feel safe to explore all the topics that may be coming up for you in our work together. This includes topics that are hard to talk about, like sex, relationship challenges, stuff around your self-esteem, and how you treat yourself. If you're tired of feeling tired, sad, and anxious, let's connect. Things don't have to stay that way. Next steps: Get started today. Reach out for a free 20-minute consultation.
