About My Clients

I work with a variety of people and particularly enjoy working with those who are curious about themselves and interested in working collaboratively towards self-understanding. My particular areas of focus include anxiety; depression; complicated relationships (romantic, family, work, etc); issues of identity, self esteem and sense of self; life transitions including parenthood, marriage, and career issues; fertility, pregnancy, and postpartum issues.

My Background and Approach

I have always been drawn to the stories that shape our lives, give us meaning, and underscore the ways in which we relate to ourselves and others. I view therapy as a unique opportunity to explore our own stories and ultimately better understand the patterns, relationships, and experiences that powerfully impact our ways of being. Together, we can reflect on the themes and patterns in your stories, work to understand how they have both helped and limited you over time, and ultimately help you create a more expansive, fuller life. My approach is rooted in the work of psychoanalytic psychotherapy and existential phenomenological psychotherapy. Each of these modalities of therapeutic change are based on a respect for the uniqueness of each person’s experience and the distinct ways in which we engage with each other, the world, and our own inner lives.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that we develop many of our patterns and coping mechanisms by doing our best to adapt to our situation at the time. Sometimes, as we grow up and our context changes, these coping mechanisms that were once so protective can become quite limiting as well. In our work together, we will try to understand the context in which these patterns arose and build a sense of self-compassion for the ways of being that have both helped and limited you over time.
