We will find your unique healing and your own path to change, expansion, and self assurance. My best source for understanding is the unique psychology you bring with you. We will find the tools within you for our work. We will work to seek clarification for yourself and understanding of others, as we provide what is needed for ongoing personal work/couples work. Good psychotherapy provides not only a safe haven to relieve anxiety, depression, and psychological pain, but also explores a wider psychic life. We will add the richness of Jung to insights from psychoanalytic thought.

Does your life today reflect your hopes and desired choices -- and satisfy your own needs? Or is the life you live defined by others' needs and expectations -- or by outdated expectations for yourself? To face life's challenges today and tomorrow requires greater self-awareness. If you wish to learn more about yourself, to not only come up with solutions to the problems you face today, but to have tools with which to meet the future, we can work together well.

Inviting those that are enduring rippling shocks of grief, the questioning of one’s belonging and identity, and the cascade of emotional overwhelm that come with. Whether that be a slow, creeping in, in between the midnight hours; a landslide of paralysing, all-encompassing pressure; or rather, a kind of lifelessness that finds its way, uninvited, permeating every corner of your world. It might be soft, even gentle, or, it could be terrorizing and despotic. But it’s that itch, that loosens your grip from stability, leaving a lingering emptiness and doubt, when the day slides past and dusk arrives.

Knowing oneself is the gateway to a fulfilling and rich life. Ideally this process begins and is encouraged in childhood. Children can encounter many stressors as they are beginning to learn who they are as people. In my work with children & teens, ages 7 - 18, from diverse cultural and social backgrounds, and with issues ranging, from anxiety to depression, I have observed that the way every child communicates and needs to be reached is unique. As a result, I adjust my approach for each child, so that they feel understood, heard, and supported.

We avoid psychotherapy for the same reasons we avoid the dentist, the accountant, or an ex— we’re sure they’ll tell us something's wrong and we’re afraid it might be our fault! Who wouldn’t be ambivalent? Some people might struggle emotionally for a week, a month, or even a year before reaching out to a therapist. And it makes sense— it's hard to confide in a stranger and it can take a while to find the right fit. We want someone who is authentic and experienced, but is also easy to talk to. For some, the flexibility to connect with our partners, children, and family members is even more important. We need someone who "gets" us!

I work with people who face challenges that often arise but are not exclusive to the second half of life such as: the trauma of illness & death, caring for aging parents, loss of satisfaction or sense of meaning in relationships and work, loss of a job, and/or loneliness. I also work with folks suffering from love addiction or love avoidance. These challenges can often be baffling and carry symptoms such as depression, fear and anxiety. The rational mind may understand what is going on but somehow the emotional and physical body can't always take solace in rational solutions.

In my nearly 20 years of clinical experience, I have come to trust that the process of a safe, non-judgmental therapeutic relationship can help us feel empowered, and confident in our own healthy sense of self. We may be stuck in the debilitating self-criticism of depression, or paralyzed with anxiety. We may feel lonely, angry, bored, insecure, victimized, or worthless. A trusting therapeutic relationship offers witness, safety, clarity and validation as we come to know and accept our own vulnerabilities, develop our own language of self, and face the challenges in our lives.

You’re not sure why you feel so anxious and overwhelmed because things are going well on paper. You often feel drained and alone, even when you’re with the people closest to you. It's terrifying to think that you could always feel this way. Maybe you can’t shake the feeling that you’re very far off from where you’d like to be even though you’ve worked hard to get to where you are now. Or you’re using substances or pulling away from your support system because you’re so tired of feeling this way. Either way, you know that something needs to change. You’ve taken an important step already by beginning to look for help.
