I offer a personalized, highly-trained approach to psychotherapy. My work is characterized by intuition, compassion, optimism and collaboration. I pride myself on being approachable and try to be straightforward and encouraging. I help people recognize the areas of their lives in which they feel stuck, and work toward achieving their own definition of success. I work with individuals, couples, families and adolescents who are struggling with various life's difficulties.
My personal specialties include relationship issues, parenting skills, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, self-esteem issues, Asperger Syndrome, trauma and women's issues. I also have expertise in helping individuals cope with issues of acculturation. I incorporate a holistic, individualized approach to each treatment, and strongly believe that psychotherapy can aid in self-actualization in the physical, relational and professional areas of one's life. I truly enjoy my work and look forward to helping you begin to feel better!
