A former celebrated varsity college athlete, I use that experience to better understand individuals under performance-based pressures; sports, actors, performers, artists, entrepreneurs and more.
I understand and honor the courage needed to take the first step towards change in your life. Navigating the human condition can often be immensely painful and this is why I believe so strongly in compassionate and supportive therapeutic engagement.  The beauty and growth in life that we are all seeking is often discovered amidst pain and discomfort. My training and experience allow me to comprehend the human experience, which can include trauma, life stressors, and circumstances from the past and/or present that leave people feeling stuck and confused. I especially enjoy working with the LGBTQIA community.

As a former professional athlete, I have lived the structured, rigid, demanding sports life. I know what it is like to be challenged, and push yourself through successes and failures without giving up. Therapy helped me and gave me a safe space to say whatever I had on my mind. Let me give you that safe space to support you through the ups and downs.

Sport psychology can help athletes address topics including: managing emotions and negative self talk; maintaining focus during practices and competitions; more effectively communicating with coaches and teammates; assessing strengths, areas in need of improvement, and authentic goals; and increasing enjoyment of sports.
As a clinical and sport psychologist, I generally work with clients who are seeking to reach higher levels of professional, athletic and academic achievement, yet are struggling with various types of anxiety. Issues may include fear of public performance, social nervousness, panic, perfectionism, and excessive worry. I frequently support athletes and student-athletes in learning to improve athletic performance with mental skills training while managing social, academic, and work pressures.

Sometimes we feel like our life has gotten out of control. We feel stuck, and no matter what we try, we can’t seem to change or get back on track. We get caught in web of negative thinking. We can find ourselves having the same fights over and over in our relationships. We may feel disconnected and an overall dissatisfaction with our lives. Sometimes we know what is bothering us, but often it can elude us. We can’t quite put our finger on it or understand it. It can seem harder and harder to get through each day. We can feel overwhelmed and exhausted, and can wonder if life is suppose to be this difficult.

Difficulties in personal or professional life can make anyone feel overwhelmed, confused or hopeless. Family problems, health issues, loss, pain or traumatic past can add to the distress. Getting through these obstacles doesn't have to be a lonely process. In a supportive and confidential atmosphere, we can discuss your thoughts and feelings, and together, make sense of your unique life's circumstances, whether you are in crisis, caught up in relationship conflicts, facing identity questions or repeating patterns that don't always bring positive solutions.
