Occasional anxiety is part of life—like when you have a problem at work or before making an important decision—this is not temporary for those with anxiety disorders, and can get worse over time. Symptoms can include difficulty controlling worry, panic attacks, and intense fear about situations you know are reasonably safe. These struggles interfere with work, school, and relationships. 


Psychological trauma occurs following highly stressful events when you felt overwhelmed and helpless (for example, an accident, combat-related violence, sexual assault, or childhood abuse). Some symptoms of trauma resolve after a few months while others may have long-term effects. I provide evidence-supported treatments to effectively manage and resolve these symptoms.   

Therapy with Men

It can be hard for men to come to therapy. Men often try therapy because their spouse or family encourages it. As we work towards your therapy goals, we’ll identify how the pressure to “be a man” complicates mental health.

American manhood can involve ignoring health concerns, unhealthy work/life balance, violence, substance use, compulsive sexual behavior, and not talking about emotions. I help traditional men connect with their thoughts and make life changes.    

Sexual and Gender Minorities

Sexual and gender minorities report more mental health issues because of the stress of stigma and discrimination. Oftentimes, there are overlapping identities at play, resulting in multiple sources of oppression (for example, LGBTQ+ individuals have unique experiences depending on race, ethnicity, religious background, geographic location, socioeconomic status, etc.). Understanding how your identities intersect helps us make sense of your thoughts and emotions.  

Women and Career Development

Barriers to a woman’s career are further complicated by cultural expectations and sexism. These barriers include finding effective mentors, the conflict between one’s values and career advancement, and tension between professional responsibilities and personal relationships. Our work will be developing solutions for these barriers and navigating competing roles.
