Psychotherapy with individuals and couples
I see therapy as a collaborative relationship that involves compassion and challenge. I actively engage with people to help them move through places where they are stuck in their lives. This may involve letting go of past hurts, learning loving kindness, developing skills and agency for living, and being able to play and experience joy. Each therapy is unique: it is devised to facilitate living a full, creative, and meaningful life.
I work with individuals and couples.

I am very helpful working with people in life transitions:
Addressing blind-spots in current work situations that connect to unresolved historical issues; ways in which people are stuck regarding relationships, for example, compromising themselves because of an old and limiting version of their sense of self that is not true and leads them into unsatisfying relationships. I understand the importance of these aspects of people’s lives. I create a safe space for people to learn about themselves and experience themselves authentically.
I offer thoughtful and compassionate psychotherapeutic services. With both support and encouragement, I challenge people to address concerns that interfere with their life satisfaction.

I have worked in community mental health and hospital settings, and I was a psychotherapist on the staff at the Emerson College Counseling Center.

I specialize in working with people who have issues with their sense of self and relationships, anxiety, depression, grief, and creative blocks. I work with individuals and couples.
