About my practice

When people decide to talk with a therapist, they are often eager and hopeful. However, many men and women may also feel uncertain, because therapy involves sharing your deepest feelings with someone you hardly know. It's easy to see why starting therapy can be both exciting and a little nerve-wracking.

People who come to see me for the first time usually wonder, "Can talking with a therapist really help? Will I be able to make myself understood?" And most importantly, "Is she the right person to help me?"

I believe that when people feel understood, they have the best opportunity for effectively negotiating life's challenges. Finding a therapist with whom you can talk honestly – one who can help you find the words to explain your feelings – can be life-changing. Creating a trusted relationship with a therapist can be the first step in developing the tools to live a life that feels richer and more authentic. I am here to help create that relationship.

Visiting a website is no substitute for meeting with one another, of course. But this website is a good starting point. It covers basic things about my training, experience, and beliefs about therapy. The site will also provide the foundation for our initial conversations.

If you have questions about starting therapy or working with me, please don't hesitate to call or email. I look forward to hearing from you.
