Life is filled with good times and bad, struggles and joy, ups and downs. I approach therapy with the goal to lessen overall misery and increase joy. I have met incredible people in my life, and I have enjoyed hearing and helping people through their journeys. We are all human, and I think it's important to be very human in therapy. Even as a psychologist, I struggle at times too. Therapy is a wonderful place to learn how you impact the world, how the world impacts you, and to take the control back. After all, we can't change the things that happen around us, but we can change what we do about them.

I want to help you realize your potential as an artist and work through issues that prevent you from achieving your artistic and professional goals. Not infrequently, professional success (or lack of it) taxes one's relationships or allows one to avoid the arena of personal relationships entirely. We will explore the path of the creative life, with all its roses and thorns. Our goal is to locate that unique creative energy within you and to allow it expression within the context of a rich and rewarding personal life.

I’m sure you’ve heard the adage “Don’t put the cart before the horse.” Yet many individuals in need of psychotherapy seek out therapists who offer them easy answers and simple solutions for their woe. But the horse, or willpower, is left in the barn. For e.g., it’s common for anxiety and depression disorders to be framed cognitively and behavioral strategies and tools used to treat their disorders. But might there not be a basic insecurity that underlies all people’s disorders and shortcomings and makes self-protection reactions, such as cognitive distortions, behavioral avoidances, and even depression likely? Ah, the will-to-live.

Relationships bring happiness, but also create longing and loneliness. They can preoccupy us and destroy our sense of safety and self-respect. If you feel stuck, overwhelmed, afraid, or lost, or are unable to decide about staying or leaving, have resolvable conflicts, unmet needs, or feel devalued, I can help - also if you seek guidance with codependency, trauma, communication, intimacy or self-esteem. You'll gain awareness in your first session, then quickly see changes in handling emotions, conflict, and boundaries. Whether seeking individual or couple counseling, you'll find solutions, empower, and an improved sense of well-being

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.
