Good psychotherapy requires not only good credentials but a good match between the therapist and the client. Though I am well educated, I often think that it is my personal style that matters most in my work with clients. I’m well trained in psychotherapy, but I never hide behind theory and I am not wedded to one school of thought. I believe that therapy should be both an intellectual and an emotional challenge that should be difficult but rewarding every step of the way.

 As a therapist, I listen intently, care deeply, and challenge often. While therapy is not about giving advice or telling people what to do, I am always actively engaged in trying to help my clients gain insight into their thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and relationships. My goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment in order to help clients clear obstacles and achieve greater happiness in their relationships, their careers, and their lives as a whole.

I strive to bring warmth, intelligence, and even humor to our work. I consider it a privilege to work with my clients in the gratifying art and science of psychotherapy. I provide both short-term, problem-focused work as well as deeper, insight-oriented and relational psychotherapy. I work with men and women struggling with a wide range of issues including difficulties with self-esteem, problems in relationships (such as those related to dating, marriage, parenting, separation, and divorce), as well as issues related to career development, work-life balance, and general life satisfaction. Many of my clients struggle with symptoms of depression and anxiety. In addition, I also continue to maintain a sub-specialty in women's health and regularly work with women regarding issues related to pregnancy, postpartum adjustment, infertility, parenting, illness, eating disorders, and loss. Lastly, I offer college counseling to high school students centered around readiness, self-awareness, goals, goodness of fit, and essay writing.

I strive to bring warmth, intelligence, and even humor to our work.
