Individual Therapy


Psychotherapy can be a transformative experience of self-investment, giving you the space to identify and reflect on your needs, motivations, and feelings. Individual therapy can be a powerful means to understand the roots of your concerns, to deepen self-acceptance, to reduce anxiety and distress, and to increase personal growth.

By gaining self-understanding, you can bring more clarity and compassion to life, helping improve decision making, communication, relationships, motivation, and well-being.

Some examples of goals that bring my clients to counseling include:

  • Coping with difficult emotions

Managing feelings of depression, anxiety, anger, low self-esteem and gaining access to greater contentment and happiness.

  • Processing difficult experiences as well as life transitions

Navigating the emotions and uncertainty inherent in loss as well as in change (such as changes in job/career, changes in role such as getting married or becoming a parent, or changes in identity such as graduating college).

  • Getting unstuck  

Identifying counterproductive patterns and changing them by tapping into sources of meaning and fulfillment and discovering one's own direction.

  • Creating meaningful relationships

Developing more rewarding relationships and addressing unrewarding ones.

  • Strengthening one's voice

Feeling grounded in one's own value and perspective and being able to express that perspective. 

  • Increasing self-confidence 

Expanding the belief in one's ability to handle the twists and turns of life.

I specialize in the following areas:

  • Depression, anxiety, stress

  • Sexual orientation & gender identity, sexuality and racial/ethnic minority status

  • Trauma

  • Grief & mourning

  • Identity

  • Relationships

  • A lack of meaning or purposefulness in life and overall dissatisfaction with life

  • Life transitions

  • Perfectionism and self-criticism
