Would you like to create a more comfortable balance at home, work and in your relationships? Are you feeling overwhelmed and wondering how to move forward?

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and work with families, couples and individual adults and teens. I have particular sensitivity towards and experience with:

    - helping teens and families manage the challenges of adolescence
    - individuals experiencing chronic and severe anxiety
    - mild to severe depression
    - stress management
    - self-injury
    - psychosis
    - healing from loss or trauma
    - relationship issues
    - LGBTQ clients
    - helping people understand and communicate about gender
    - artists, writers and individuals pursuing creative interests

My overall therapeutic approach is collaborative and humanistic, which values each person's uniqueness and innate capacity for positive growth and transformation. I have a background in fine art and art therapy and strive to bring a creative approach to my work.

In August 2010, I began working primarily with clients who desire to connect through secure videoconferencing. If, due to mobility issues, lifestyle barriers or other reasons, you desire to meet in this manner from the privacy of your home or office, please email me or visit my website for more information!
