Each individual is on a constant path of growth and change, this ongoing transformation can be both exciting and at other times extremely challenging. Throughout our lives, we will all face challenges that feel overwhelming and we may struggle to cope with trauma, grief, anxiety or major life changes. Psychotherapy provides the opportunity to process these events and to build new ways of coping while discovering oneself at a deeper level. The process of psychotherapy is a tremendous opportunity for growth and transformation. A psychotherapist has the skills and training necessary to provide guidance and compassionate support during this process. I see my role as accompanying and guiding clients as they face the distress that has initiated their healing journey. The relationship between the client and therapist should be genuine, safe and comfortable as the change process is a joint effort that both individuals engage in together. I hold a strong belief that each person has the capacity and natural tendency towards positive growth and healing. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Ithaca, NY and I provide strength-based and compassionate psychotherapy to adults and adolescents.
