Often the desire to start therapy begins when you realize that you are not in control of your feelings, goals, wishes, your own life. Those are the moments that you realize that maybe something needs to change. The change you seek may be specific around a certain event, or more diffuse, based on larger transformations, a desire for deeper insight or better self-awareness. Whatever it is, you do not have to deal with it alone and finding the right therapist is an important first step. As your therapist, I'll meet you with curiosity, warmth, and respect, creating a safe space where you can re-connect with your best self.

I believe people want to express who they are and pursue satisfying work and relationships, but have emotional and cognitive patterns that keep them stuck. These patterns often consolidate into a persona that leaves people feeling not quite themselves, with needs unrealized, feelings ignored, and potential unused. Symptoms of anxiety and depression, addictions, or low self-esteem, are often the only messengers trying to let us know that we are needing change. In a supportive and safe environment, therapy can help to bring these patterns into awareness and liberate needs to connect, create, and expand with fuller emotional support.

I have been in private practice for over 35 years, helping people get free from pain that hinders happiness. I give them tools to attain more refined states of balance, personal engagement and vibrance in their lives. The process of therapy is immensely creative and personally unique, and in its' special moments asks that we step into leaps of faith of being with our present experience. The benefits are priceless. Depression, anxiety, not having a sense of self, destructive thinking, procrastination, poor relationship quality are all within our control to change.

Love, work, and emotional health are the areas that challenge us. Whether you are single or in a relationship, love can be tough to find or keep. Don't settle for loneliness, fights, circular arguments or cold distance. Good communication can be learned. Affairs can often be survived. In your work life, are you suffering from anxiety, perfectionism, lack of confidence, or time crunch? I understand the specific challenges of being in the business world, and the needs of sensitive, creative personalities.

Are you nursing a heartbreak post-split? Considering divorce? When we are hurting emotionally, it’s near impossible to see things clearly. Sometimes, it is the things right in front of us that can be most difficult to look at. And whether we want to admit it or not, friends and family have a vested interest. That’s where I come in..my 20+ years working as a practicing clinician have taught me that although no one else can be the expert on you, sometimes an “expert” third party can see your picture with greater clarity, if for no other reason then I’m in no way attached to the outcome (except for your happiness, of course).

I do individual and couples therapy dealing with: addictions; defensive communication; sexuality; aggression; parenting, and money. *I find that most couples during arguments or stressful times, communicate poorly--are reactive and quick to blame. I really value helping the individuals develop themselves and their skills as a way out of this cycle, and towards a loving relationship. *In individual therapy we may deal with loneliness, anxiety, addictive patterns/substances or depression. We work together to set personal goals and on staying accountable. I focus on their maladaptive thoughts/feelings that can interfere with them retaking charge of their life.
