You deserve to feel good about yourself, to leave behind patterns and behaviors that no longer serve you, and to enjoy healthy relationships.


In nearly three decades of working with adolescents and adults, I’ve combined talk therapy with the science of neurobiology, which is just a fancy term for how the brain works. Using both, I teach you practical tools that will help you cope with a wide range of struggles, from eating disorders to anxiety to depression. 
No single person’s brain is like any other person’s brain, and no one person’s challenges exactly match those of another. I’m trained to identify a wide range of common emotional and mental health concerns, and to use tools ranging from EMDR to DBT to help each of my clients find relief, build resilience, set boundaries in difficult relationships, and overcome fears.
 I strive to make my virtual office a safe and welcoming place for all, inclusive of sexual orientation, gender identity, race, ethnicity, faith background or immigration status. It is important to me as a clinician and as a person that my clients feel safe, secure and heard as we tackle painful problems together.
 Whether you’re struggling with relationship dynamics, childhood or single event trauma, self-acceptance, fear and anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or other  issues, I can help you. Please fill in the contact form to get in touch with me.
