I am a clinical psychologist with experience working with individuals across the lifespan, with a special focus in relationship problems, personality disorders, grief, and identity/role changes throughout life.

I firmly believe the most important part of therapy is a trusting and genuine relationship between both the therapist and client. My approach to therapy is collaborative and individualized where we work together to observe what happens between us and how we each contribute to the relationship dynamic that emerges in the session. I see my role as an active participant—I’ll ask questions, listen carefully to your answers and the way you communicate, and share what I notice with you so that we may consider together what all of this means to you and about you. As a participant in our relationship, I also model the expression of feelings within relationships and how to talk about things that might seem scary or vulnerable to talk about with other people.

I have experience working with adults and older adults with a wide range of concerns, helping people explore the stories they have about themselves as it relates to their identities. Through our work together, I intend to help you change your relationship to the narratives you have about yourself by finding, focusing, and fostering your strengths while understanding and transforming the blocks that prevent you from living your richest and most meaningful life. My work combines insight-focused exploration, skills-based tools, and in the moment experiential learning about your body, your feelings, and the different urges and voices inside of you, in order to promote tangible changes in your life. I’m looking forward to learning more about you and how we can work through your concerns together.
