I am a licensed mental health counselor with almost 10 years experience working with adults at various stages of life, from their post-high school years through retirement. As a result, I’ve helped them navigate a variety of mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, grief/loss and life transitions. I have extensive training and experience working with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders and am passionate about supporting women (and men!) through this overwhelming and intense period of transition.

I believe in being a partner in your therapy — my role is to create a safe place for you to explore the thoughts and emotions you’re struggling with and to help you clarify and implement changes that bring you a sense of peace and self-fulfillment. To do this, I utilize a variety of approaches: cognitive, humanistic, psychodynamic and supportive therapy; and tools: meditation, writing, body awareness and interactive feedback, among others.
