About…

Life can be tough, especially if you are feeling stuck, alone, stressed, disconnected, burned out, or like something is missing. It takes a great deal of strength and commitment to work on the difficulties you are facing, and you’ve taken an important step in making a change by looking for support. I offer individual adult and youth psychotherapy. If you are experiencing anxiety, self-criticism, high expectations for yourself, self-doubt, relationship dissatisfaction, difficulties related to parenting or family dynamics, or if you want to develop emotional insight and regulation skills, I am here to provide guidance and support.

I may also be a good fit if you want to: strengthen your communication skills, shape your life to be more aligned with your values and goals, heal past relational pains, set boundaries and communicate assertively, address perfectionism, manage stress and burnout, explore how to increase self-compassion, or develop emotionally informed parenting skills.

I am committed to creating an environment that feels safe for you to explore the challenges you are facing, and supported to create meaningful change in your life. I also strongly value collaborating with you to meet your therapeutic needs with evidence-based practice and to create an approach unique to you. Please feel free to reach out for a consult.

Some of my areas of focus include: Supporting parents and caregivers experiencing burnout, stress, guilt, and self-criticism; helping individuals with high self-criticism, anxiety, or high standards for oneself develop self-compassionate skills; to address relational pain and strengthen connection in couples and family therapy; and to promote the identification and pursuit of values and goals.

My influences are: Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT, Couples), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). These therapies can offer opportunities to dynamically practice skills and explore difficulties with activities such as metaphor and imagery work, action planning, or role-play. These therapies ‘meet you where you are at’ and offer guidance towards goals.
