Relational psychotherapy and counseling for individuals and couples.

Perhaps you have felt challenged to really step into your life, uncertain of how to choose a path that really feels like you. Maybe you don't have a good sense of who you are, carrying around the ache of sadness, anxiety or feeling that you're just not good enough.  Perhaps you straddle multiple identities and are trying to find a way where the whole complexity of you and your experience can be understood and explored.

 My practice serves people like you. 

I am an engaged and responsive psychotherapist who specializes in working with on issues related to:

  • Relationship difficulties
  • Communication problems
  • Career Concerns
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Self-esteem
  • Identity concerns.
  • A subspecialty of mine is working with bicultural individuals and couples.

I am adept at holding the complexity of people's experiences. My approach is interactive, warm and pragmatic. You will get a sense that I am really listening to your concerns and responding to you thoughtfully and openly. I believe that a good therapy facilitates growth through connection. People who work with me report feeling a sense of acceptance in our relationship, which allows them to experience more expansive ways of being. This is often very healing and opens up new possibilities for you and your life. Working together, we will shed new light on old problems. As we come to know your strengths, we will develop a greater understanding of the obstacles and frustrations that are holding you back from living the life you want.
