Psychotherapy for Individuals and Couples

We all have the capacity to live a full and happy life yet daily living can sometimes feel stressful and overwhelming.  Anxiety, depression, self-doubt, relationship distress, or longings for increased balance and satisfaction in life are common difficulties.  True psychotherapy combining kindness and wisdom can lead to deep and lasting change when tailored to each client's personal life challenges and hopes.  

My core values are to listen carefully, participate actively, and perhaps most importantly, be compassionate, fully present, and validating.  I have found that these qualities create a therapy relationship where clients feel secure and empowered to explore and work through their concerns.  Along these lines, my areas of specialization include:

  • Individual Adults and Couples
  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Intimacy and Loneliness
  • Grief and Bereavement
  • Life Transitions
  • Personal Growth
This is the core of living: what you feel and how you are at home with yourself.
