As humans, we are exposed to many environmental factors, both positive and negative, that impact how we function later in life. Issues that are problematic and negatively impact our lives are usually symptoms and not the problem. Together, we explore the symptoms to identify the deeper problems. I specialize in individual counseling, couples counseling (including premarital counseling), and family counseling. My approach to treatment is generally cognitive-behavioral therapy. I have more than 30 years as a clinician during which time I've worked with chronic psychiatric disorders, developmental disorders, and substance addiction.

Many people experience a challenge in life that impedes their ability to fully be themselves, be present in their daily life, and be connected to the people they love. Often, people try to cope with stress or unhappiness by pushing through the bad feelings and continuing on until that no longer works. If you find yourself in this situation, I can help you find a path back to being present in, and enjoying, your life. Therapy allows for a connection and a relationship in which your healing and wellbeing is the focus. It creates a space for you to stop, breathe, feel and talk through what is distressing you.

Our worlds are chaotic, messy and sometimes cruel. As a result it is easy to unknowingly repeat that disorganization in our own lives. My goal to challenge these patterns of behaviors and relationships that may be keeping children, adolescents and emerging adults stuck. My specialty is working with strong personalities who have difficulty communicating their emotions with others, often relying on their behaviors alone to do so. My clients are quirky children who have ADHD, trauma, self injury, suicidality and mood disorders in addition to adolescents and college students who struggle with identity formation and healing the past.

You are the most important person you will ever meet. Why not be on good terms with yourself? I view therapy as a relationship between two people devoted to facing the deepest truths of our lives so we can be healed. I believe that coming to know ourselves and understanding why we suffer leads to genuine change, a return to health, and gives birth to a more authentic life. In therapy, we discover that we heal through relating, because the wounds that occurred in relationships must be healed in a relationship. For what was unbearable when alone, becomes bearable when shared.
