I help people live full, authentic, creative lives, while decreasing anxiety, depression, fear and shame. All marginalized individuals welcome!

It’s not easy to find a therapist. I hope that what I tell you about me and the way I work, will make it easier to reach out.

I work to help people resolve anxiety and depression, particularly in the context of eating problems, self-esteem, body image, and relational difficulties. I’m down to earth, easy to talk to, non-judgmental and extremely interactive. I work to minimize and eliminate the shame and self-anger people frequently feel about themselves and their lives. I create a safe, comfortable environment for individual or couples counseling.

My own artistic background provides an empathic understanding for creatively driven individuals. I work with artists, of all levels and fields, to help them overcome self-doubt and creative blocks. By raising awareness of those critical voices that paralyze the creative process, I help individuals understand and challenge the self-doubt and self-criticism that interfere with their goals. I enable people of racial identities and sexual identities to develop their voices and believe in their own gifts and unique perspectives. As an active participant in treatment, I offer guidance, support, and the tools you’ll need to make change happen. I believe in the human capacity for growth. Working together, within a positive therapeutic alliance, tomorrow can be significantly better than today.
