iscovering the best parts of ourselves can start in simple ways: accepting ourselves as we are, and learning how to "be" rather than "do." Being is a matter of learning about ourselves as we journey; and building on our strengths, opening again to the essential. The fulfilled life of being and belonging may appear different for each of us, but we will know we are growing as our wounds heal, our peace and stability return and our lives become connected again to the values that make us feel most alive.

I'm glad you're here. Your unique experiences and aspirations make you, you; and of utmost importance to me, you are welcome to be fully yourself. My foundation is always person-centered, and I believe you have the capacity to meet your greatest potential.

Working Alongside You

Together we foster the change that reaches your hopes and needs.

Depending on each person's unique needs, my techniques draw from cognitive-behavioral, humanistic and psychodynamic approaches. Additional supportive methods such as present-oriented mindfulness can benefit the mind-body connection and correlate with increased physical health and overall wellbeing. Those who resonate with mindfulness reawaken to where neither future uncertainties nor the burdens of the past cloud the present moment. This clarity of the present moment allows us to see without self-criticism or self-judgment, and to build again to the wellbeing, the relationships, the connections that matter most to you.

Over the years I have had the privilege of providing psychotherapy services to a wide variety of clients in community mental health, university counseling, private practice and skilled nursing/physical rehabilitation settings. After completing my Master's in Clinical Psychology I obtained my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. My postdoctoral residency was completed at Carnegie Mellon University's Counseling and Psychological Services with diverse university students. I have worked with adults across the lifespan facing a broad range of challenges. My areas of special interest include (but are not limited to) grief and loss, identity exploration, life transitions and adjustments, anxiety, depression, chronic medical illness and chronic pain.

Your journey to discovery and wellbeing is as close as the present moment, and I look forward to connecting with you!
