I provide individual therapy for adults and adolescents. As a generalist practitioner, I treat a wide range of psychological disorders and presenting concerns. I welcome clients of all sexual orientations, gender identities, faiths, nationalities, and ethnic backgrounds.
My approach to individual therapy is to listen, help you express all your thoughts and feelings, support you in tolerating those feelings, and promote insight into the problems for which you’re seeking therapy. At times, I may also call attention to the therapeutic relationship as a way of better understanding how you work in relationships more broadly. The goal is to help you feel better at work, love, and play, and to face life’s ups and downs with resilience and freedom.
I provide counseling to couples in all stages of a relationship, whether you’ve been together for decades or recently started dating. While most couples come to therapy looking to improve communication, therapy can also help you and your partner:
- better understand one another
- gain insight into maladaptive relationship patterns and barriers to intimacy
- find more effective ways to meet each partner’s needs
- increase empathy
- build intimacy
- talk about concerns and/or goals for your sex life
- navigate cultural differences and expectations
- process emotional or physical infidelity
- make decisions about the future (e.g., relationship status, family planning, shared goals)
In couples work, it is crucial to build a safe space in which we can take a look at your experiences (both internal and external) with curiosity and empathy. Just as no one gets a pain-free life, no couple goes through the course of a relationship without hitting some bumps in the road. Let the bumps bring you closer together by talking through the hard stuff and learning about one another (and yourself) in the process. At its best, couples therapy can support each partner to live authentically, while also nurturing a strong connection with one another.
All therapy sessions are 50 minutes long, by appointment, Monday through Friday.
