Despite our best efforts to change, obstacles can be terribly difficult to overcome in isolation. My therapeutic approach is warm, empathic, supportive, curious, and honest. I am dedicated to creating a safe and secure space in which we can explore the thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and relational patterns that may be causing you to feel stuck. Here’s the good news: if you are struggling, it is likely that your symptoms are highly treatable.
I work with young adults on the various worries/challenges that arise when transitioning into adulthood, including creating healthy romantic and peer relationships, navigating college and early career development, and working though complicated family dynamics. I have extensive experience working with adolescents and young adults on gender, sexual, and romantic identity development, and welcome individuals from the LGBTQQIA+ community. The transition to adulthood can be overwhelming, but with the right amount of support, empowerment, and scaffolding, it can be an incredibly exciting time in your life.
I am also dedicated to increasing awareness of the ways in which sports and exercise interface with mental health (motivation, training, injury, and recovery), and feelings of inadequacy and/or body dissatisfaction related to social media use.
Additionally, I work with adolescents and parents; I am committed to helping you better understand the emotions underlying your child's behavior, and the ways in which you can foster his or her resiliency, self-esteem, academic success, and overall healthy emotional development. I believe strongly in supporting parents through the challenges of parenting, so that they can better support their children.
