All of us create patterns of behavior in our formative years to help us survive real and perceived dangers. What are those patterns? How have those patterns inhibited our lives today? How can we break free from those patterns and develop a more alive and integrated sense of self?

As we exit one of the most turbulent periods in our lifetime, how does one listen to one's soul and deepen a better understanding of oneself? Does your soul yearn for acknowledgement, self-inquiry, self-discovery, self-acceptance, self-care, and fulfillment? Are you struggling to find meaning and purpose? Do you feel stuck, powerless, and yet seek a fuller expression of your artistry and creativity? Do you seek freedom and independence, as well as intimacy, connection, and healing?

I love the work I do as a psychotherapist. I see myself as a healer and guide. With you as my client, we navigate the challenges and perhaps, traumas of your past. Being guided through the changes you want to make, I offer empathy and compassion, knowing that self-exploration that leads to desired change can be a challenge, and sometimes the challenge becomes too great to want to continue. It is a given that I listen with in the moment “presence”, and I believe that this “presence” is the key to healing and growth. I welcome the opportunity to work with you as your guide and co-healer on your path of growth, healing and change.

I believe we are all born with the resiliency to handle life’s challenges. Along the way, we develop necessary, sometimes unhelpful, strategies to manage the distress and attempt to stay connected to the people we love and depend on. Whether you’re dealing with anxiety, depression, a life transition, a traumatic experience, grief, or relationship difficulties, we all need a supportive and compassionate other to join us as we untangle these strategies and discover new ways to access our inner strength and authenticity. I’d love to be this person for you.

I believe anxiety and stress to be the foundation of many issues we all face. My first goal is to help my patients reduce stress thereby decreasing chronic pain, depression and even the ravages of disease and illness. By developing rapport and trust and then utilizing healthy coping skills, the goal of anxiety reduction can be achieved. Its important to remember that we are engaged in a collaborative process where we learn to accept, resolve, move on and let go. I find that mindfulness, meditation and breathing is highly effective in decreasing anxiety and depression.

Are you feeling depressed, anxious, or overwhelmed? Are you dissatisfied with or disengaged from your life and relationships? Or do you just feel like something is getting in the way of living the life you really want? Therapy can help you understand why these difficulties arise and help you discover what you can do to cope with these challenges now. I use a collaborative relational approach to engage your curiosity about how early experiences, unconscious motivations, thoughts, or fears may contribute to your life today. Together, we will work to foster compassion for your struggles and motivation to create the life you desire.

If you don't feel satisfied with your life then why not figure what would make you happy. You may not know what's missing or how to feel better, and that is where therapy is an amazing opportunity. I want to help you discover yourself, embrace your uniqueness, and appreciate why and how you do the things you do. In our work together we will explore your past and help make connections that will allow you to feel more autonomy and control in your life. We will uncover passions and embrace your skills and strengths as a person.

People are my passion! Is life for you or your child not going the way you'd like? In a supportive and confidential environment we can work together to identify the obstacles that are in the way of life being all that you want for yourself, your relationships, or your child. There are many approaches to psychotherapy, but research indicates that the patient-therapist relationship is a crucial factor. The beginning of therapy is creating that relationship and building trust. My focus is the present but I use the past that lives inside you to free you from its influence.

I take pride as a psychologist in the area of personal growth when dealing with life's challenges. This involves meeting your needs and starting where you are now and going from there. I work collaboratively in order for you to get to a 'better' place. I have accumulated a wealth of experience helping others combat challenges of not being able to have children by traditional means. I worked with patients exploring 'good' solutions to this heart-rending process. My goal involves helping individuals deal with the normal and not so normal life challenges of depression, self-esteem, anxiety, relationships, children, parents, and more.

I work with adult individuals, adolescents, couples and families to help you cope with not only life's daily struggles, but also provide support for crisis, traumas, challenging life transitions and relationship issues. I use talk, narrative, somatic therapies, as well as EMDR (trauma work), to help you decrease anxiety and depression, manage stress, cope with challenges and enhance your creativity and productivity. My approach is very conversational, interactive and pro-active. In contrast to heavy analysis, I strive to uncover and cultivate my client's strengths, abilities and values to help them overcome their problems.
