Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

If you are reading my profile that means you are looking for a therapist. Congratulations! Knowing that you need help, and then finding the right therapist is a big deal. Unfortunately, it can also be a pretty confusing process. You might be thinking: How can I share my innermost thoughts and fears with a total stranger? What if the therapist is flaky and wastes my time? What if I don’t like the therapist or they don’t like me? What if they talk too much or worse yet, don’t say anything at all? What if they judge me or think I’m crazy?
I get it. So here is a brief primer on me to see if we are a good fit:

I completed a PhD in Psychology studying all aspects of close relationships. I thought that when I became a therapist, my specialty would be maternal mental health since becoming a mom and being a mom are such central parts of my life story. And, helping women (and their partners and families) transition to parenthood is indeed a big interest of mine. But what I also found was that I’m equally interested in helping people deal with infidelity, divorce, loss, grief, trauma, stress, unemployment, sexuality, life transitions, aging, depression, anxiety, infertility….

That is, I realized that my therapeutic interests are as varied as the people who come see me. And that it’s understanding the person; the whole person, and not just their presenting concerns that really is my specialty.

As a therapist, you will find in me someone who is animated, engaged, curious, analytical, empathic, non-judgmental, challenging and direct. I will at times be your confidant, the holder of your pain, your greatest cheerleader, and the person who can sit with you in periods of confusion and ambiguity.

If this is the kind of therapist that you are looking for, please reach out, I’d like to meet you.
