ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS: If you feel Covid-19 has changed your life, you are not alone. The pandemic has brought several matters to the surface: systemic racism, relationship and safety issues, and widespread uncertainty. Perhaps you have avoided unresolved issues and now they have arrived at your door, suddenly demanding your attention. Fear and the need to feel safe are now the common denominator as everyone is navigating the new normal. You may feel exhausted, guilty, burned out, or have trouble sleeping, among other symptoms. You are not alone in this process - this is the reality of collective trauma.

Becoming your best self, managing natural life transitions, and staying on top of daily stressors takes work. It can be particularly challenging if you are experiencing an unexpected life transition, struggling with emotion regulation, engaging in unhealthy behaviors, or feeling distress and unfulfillment in your relationships. I have been working from a client-centered approach for over 15 years and work to achieve supportive, nonjudgmental and collaborative relationships with my clients. My approach draws from my background training in family systems, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy.

The cause could be chemical-due to a family history or it could be situational-due to a loss or traumatic event. Traumatic events include becoming a caregiver to a family member with mental illness.

You and your partner feel stuck and don’t know how to make things better. Arguments can go in circles and never feel resolved. Sometimes the smallest disagreement can escalate quickly. You don’t know why it has to be this hard when both of you want to feel understood and cared for. Maybe major life transitions and changes have made it hard to feel as connected as you used to. You miss feeling close, and like they have your back. Talking about your issues doesn’t seem to help, but avoiding them isn’t working either.

Typically individuals come to psychotherapy for relief of emotional and psychological pain, which may take the form of depression, anxiety, self-defeating behavior, and/or unfulfilled relationships or goals, to name a few. Many can identify some past trauma, or perhaps some mistreatment that seems somehow connected. For others the reasons are more elusive, like a general feeling of unhappiness, perhaps with oneself or with others.I strive to help you verbalize your thoughts and feelings about what happens between us in our emerging relationship as a way of understanding your relationships in general.

Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP) is an approach to therapy that demands full and active collaboration between the patient and therapist. The patient is expected to bring a will to live as fulfilled and happy a life as possible. In using ISTDP I approach the patient's time as invaluable, and believe the wisest approach is to be up front with the patient immediately and continuously, to bring relief from suffering in the fastest and safest way possible. Therapy is typically conducted on a weekly basis following the initial evaluation until goals are achieved.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in 20052 are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.

Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in 20052 then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in 20052, or Child Psychologists in 20052.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like 20052 psychologists specializing in EMDR.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in 20052 specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
