Couples work is challenging and emotionally provocative. Feelings of frustration, pain, anger and discouragement alternating with relief, hopefulness, and excitement are common among couples who are trying to resolve their marital discord. Although each couple is unique the following principles hold true in treatment of the majority of partners. 1) A good marriage requires both spouses to psychologically separate from their family of origin and shift their primary love, loyalty to each other. An individual cannot fully participate in an interdepended relationship without being first an independent and autonomous person.

The most valuable and essential piece in therapy is the connection between the therapist and the client. Without rapport and safety, no meaningful step can be taken towards recovery.

My client-centered, strength-based approach empowers and motivates my clients to direct the pace and trajectory of therapy. I assist my clients with identifying their goals for treatment, as well as the constraints preventing them from achieving them. As the therapeutic process unfolds, we work together to determine how to remove the constraints—and sometimes explore how they got there in first place. I am knowledgeable about and comfortable with a wide range of therapeutic models and interventions, all of which offer useful tools for understanding how problems originate, as well as how to effect positive change here and now.

I am a psychotherapist committed to providing a supportive, safe and judgment-free environment for my clients to work through present problems and to address unresolved issues from the past. The goal is to help individuals better understand the causes of their problems and identify patterns, develop better self-awareness and self-acceptance, form healthier relationships and improve the overall quality of their life. Understanding the impact of the past and making peace with it are important components of treatment as one's past can continue to hunt the present time and influence it in ways that are not always evident to us.

I love working with kids (9 and up), adolescents, adults, and their families. I help my patients identify their own strengths and use them to overcome mental health challenges. I strongly believe that every child has the capacity to heal in their family environment, and that their parents deserve a compassionate and competent provider who can help them overcome difficult behaviors. I also work with adults, particularly those diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. My patients are typically suffering from extreme emotional and interpersonal dysregulation. I help them learn to regulate their emotions and mend relationships.

Dealing with difficult life situations is harder when decision making is clouded by emotions that make us feel stuck or act in ways that lead to unwanted outcomes. By learning to think clearer and to safely express emotions, you will discover healthier ways to respond. I work with people whose blocked feelings cause physical and/or emotional pain. I help couples who are caught in problematic relationships develop clearer boundaries. I encourage self care and help you challenge what gets in your own way. I also have expertise in helping ailing people facing end of life issues and welcome those who need to explore these concerns.

We all face stressors in life that can become overwhelming. Feeling stuck with our own negative thoughts or anxiety about new changes; repeatedly engaging in the same fights with our partner or spouse; worrying that we cannot support our children in the way we want - these are all universal experiences. Everyone faces obstacles, but not everyone has to remain feeling helpless, hopeless, or stagnant. It is at these times when it makes the most sense to reach out for support and when therapy can be most effective.
