About the work I do

I offer a range of evidence-based treatments, from brief therapy for specific issues to longer-term psychotherapy for patients seeking insight and clarity into identity and interpersonal relationships.

I meet with individuals once a week for psychotherapy.


The kinds of problems people bring to therapy with me have included:

  •      Depression

  •      Anxiety

  •      Grief at the loss of a relationship

  •      Wanting to have an intimate relationship 

  •      Wanting to stop drinking or using drugs

  •      Being partnered with someone who drinks or uses drugs

  •      Struggles with college classes (procrastination, disorganization, anxiety, depression)

  •      Uncertainty about completing the dissertation

  •      Self-harm (cutting, burning, bingeing/purging)

  •      Thoughts of suicide or suicide attempts

  •      Being a survivor of sexual, physical, emotional, or verbal assault, in childhood or more recently

  •      Compulsive overeating

  •      Wanting to learn how to regulate emotions

  •      Feelings of shame and shame-driven behaviors


I do not limit myself to any single therapeutic approach. I look at each person through the lenses of Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), psychodynamic, behavioral, interpersonal, and mindfulness therapies. 

I hold a certificate in Archetypal Pattern Analysis

I am certified in Telemental Health. I use a secure video platform for therapy under some conditions, one of which is that we meet face-to-face first.

I am specially trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy. DBT is an approach that has been demonstrated to be effective with emotionally sensitive people, those who have difficulty tolerating distress, regulating emotions, and acting effectively in interpersonal interactions. DBT is a proven treatment of choice for those who engage in self-injury. I offer DBT to both individuals and groups. For more information on my DBT skills classes, click here.
