Feeling stuck, anxious, or overwhelmed? You work hard to be competent on the outside, maintaining control, holding your life together. Yet you know something is off on the inside. You want to be free. Free from the worry, anxiety and the patterns you keep finding yourself living over and over. You don't need to live your life this way any longer. Is this type of freedom even possible? Yes. Yes it is. You do not have to walk this path alone any longer. You have tried everything you can think of to help you sleep, help you cope, stop the flashbacks. Some of your strategies worked, but they are not enough.

Sometimes the world feels like it’s seriously doomed. Every day there is a new threat to humanity. At least that’s what the 24/7 news cycle wants us to believe. You want to be informed but your mind is constantly playing out worst-case scenarios on repeat. The onslaught of information available has you worried about your health, the economy, greenhouse gases - on & on it goes. You are so overwhelmed you drown your anxieties in endless YouTube clips or scrolling through social media. But after a while, that feels like crap too. Because the truth is, social interactions terrify you & you’d rather just avoid people in general.

In my work as a therapist and organizational consultant over the last 25 + years, I have assisted youth, adults, families, and organizations in reducing barriers to and facilitating elements of healthy growth, functioning, and the achievement of goals. I work collaboratively with clients for I don't feel that I'm an expert on someone else life. We learn together what will work for you as the therapy progresses and by the work you do in therapy, it is hoped that you will reach the goals that you set for yourself at the very first appointment.

Some of my areas of focus are on addressing anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues, as well as family dynamics.

My approach to counseling is to focus on strengths and help to assist with solutions rather than telling my patients what to do. My focus is to address short-term problems as well as long-term psychological well-being. The more you can tell me about what and how you are feeling, the more effectively I will be able to assist you in resolving your personal problems and issues. I believe all individuals are deserving of acceptance, respect, compassion, and understanding, and all children are capable of success in academics, extracurricular activities, and social interactions.

***Openings available Mon, Tues, and Wed*** Weeks, months, or possibly years pass while ignoring a nagging sensation in our minds/bodies. The sensation is communicating to us that something is not right. When we listen, we might notice a few things. In our work, we might feel overwhelmed, dissatisfied, or worthless. In our day-to-day life, we might feel irritated, guilty, or uncertain. Maybe we notice overall feelings of hopelessness, worry, and fatigue. We want to be free of these feelings and have more meaning in our lives, but we don’t know how to start or what to do next.

I have had 30 years as a psychologist to marvel at how profoundly useful great therapy can be. I help clients better understand the patterns that sabotage their happiness, clarify the relationships that move them forward or pull them backwards, and help them tap insights about their conscious and unconscious needs in life. Together we'll build a strong relationship that enables us to develop a plan tailored to your true goals and identity. All of my sessions are telehealth.

Have you been impacted by problematic relationships, infidelity, or sex addiction? You might feel lost, betrayed, and alone. Do you ask yourself, "How do I keep ending up in these relationships?". Are you afraid to be alone even when your partner is clearly unhealthy? Core beliefs are the foundation of our being but when they cause us pain, embarrassment, and shame we can become depressed, anxious, fake, and withdrawn. Do you compare yourself to others (I call this Comparanoia)? Do you tell yourself “I am stupid”, “I am worthless”, or “I am not good enough”? If so, then your core beliefs may be contributing to your pain today.
