Thank you for your interest in my practice. I see therapy as a powerful two-person process of discovery and acceptance. In session we laugh, we cry, we understand and we grow. We read over the past, stay rooted in the present, and look forward to a more balanced and fulfilling future. My integrative approach to treatment is rooted in interpersonal psychodynamic theory, but also drives from other models to meet each person's unique needs. My areas of expertise include trauma work, college mental health, issues related to international relocation, cultural integration, study abroad, body-mind balance, and adoption.

I have expertise in attachment with a specialty in adoption (author, “Be My Baby: Talking About Adoption”).
What causes you self-doubt? Or pain? Let’s learn about your hopes and fears... and your confidence. We will talk. We will build a trusting relationship. You will understand why connections are hard for you and how to be with yourself to be with be with others. You will learn intimacy and clarify your goals all without repeating disappointing patterns. We will shift inward to a felt sense of how doubt, fear, and disappointment operate in you. Unknown parts of yourself will emerge. Instead of being ruled by automatic thoughts you will see how these habits can be transformed. We will work safely mindful of where you are now.

Making change takes intention and courage. Finding meaning in everyday life and living in a way that we yearn to is no small task! I work with adults who wish to create change and feel happier in their lives. This could mean issues surrounding transition into adulthood, dating and relationships, professional goals, life transitions, work/family balance, parenting, long term relationships with partners. I have expertise in supporting family members of a loved one struggling with addiction. I also have an interest in family members touched by adoption.
