About me

Hi! If you would like to get to the root of your challenges in life and make lasting change, I'm here to help. You may have particular issues you want to work on. Or you may be discouraged, depressed, or constantly anxious. You may feel trapped by obligations and everyday pressures. Or you might just have a sense that you're not living your best, fullest life. I am here to affirm that your life can be better.

I'm a clinical social worker with experience working in prisons and inpatient psychiatry. I am oriented towards psychodynamic and psychoanalytic thinking, meaning that I am open to making your therapy what you need it to be. -- Lasting change takes time and self-understanding. You may come to therapy wanting to deal with a certain relationship or career issue. But as we freely explore, we come to understand the whole context and the internal and external barriers that you are confronting. Sometimes just having someone deeply understand a problem with you can loosen its hold.
