Have you had a recent difficult or traumatic life experience that you can't recover from on your own? Did you grow up in a chaotic home where it felt hard to be seen or get your needs met? You may have felt an underlying anxiety and not enough soothing due to issues beyond your control. If you struggle in your current relationships and seem to experience too many painful feelings like fear, anger, sadness, shame, or guilt you probably have unresolved trauma, even if it doesn't seem to match your idea of what that is. I can help you overcome these damaging experiences and negative feelings so that you can feel more at peace inside.

My approach is best described as interactive, personable, nonjudgmental, and aimed at bringing about change that's both meaningful and real. I tend not to view people's issues or concerns as a form of pathology or neurosis, but rather as particular problems in living. I see each person as genuinely unique, and so avoid cookie-cutter approaches. My role is to help individuals and couples work through problems as effectively and efficiently as possible, in a way that builds confidence, self-respect, hope, and, ultimately, a fresh way of living life.

Lasting change occurs in therapy when one identifies and works through their concerns that have been outside their awareness. I develop a non-judgmental, intimate working alliance with my clients, in order to facilitate this self-understanding, both emotionally and intellectually. Such work fosters growth and creative responses to long standing difficulties in relationship to one's self and others. In return for investing themselves fully, my clients are offered the freedom to be more completely who they are, while also being able to maintain close and fulfilling relationships.

Maybe it's time to stop trying to think our way out of anxiety. “If I do this, I'll be ok ” or “Once I accomplish that and that other thing happens, then I’ll finally be ok”. Does it work? No it doesn't. It might give us a brief sense of relief that gets quickly replaced by the next wave of anxiety. Yet for some strange reason we keep practicing mental gymnastics in a futile attempt to calm the mind, only agitating it more. It's like we keep banging our heads agains a wall in an attempt to get rid of a headache. Are you ready to try something that works? Then let me tell you about how I work.

Asking for help takes courage when you find yourself overwhelmed and not sure what to do. I approach my work with compassion and understanding. I strive to create an environment for you that is safe, accepting, and free of judgement. I believe that the purpose of therapy is to learn more about ourselves by expressing ourselves openly and honestly without emphasis on what is "right" or "wrong." This can help us identify deep patterns that keep us stuck and create new ways of dealing with life's challenges and being in relationships.

Welcome! I offer short-term and long-term models of psychotherapy for individual adults of all ages and walks of life. I work with a wide range of people who come to therapy for different reasons wether it be symptoms of mood dysregulation such as anxiety or depression, issues related childhood or adult trauma, relationship challenges, dealing with a chronic health condition, a major loss or life transition, or wether it is simply for personal growth and healing. Regardless of the reason that calls a person to seek therapeutic support, my over 15 years of clinical experience have taught me that the heart of the process that unfolds in psychotherapy can be boiled down to a few key principles that apply to most peoples journey of gaining a better degree of psychological wholeness and health. My integrative approach to psychotherapy draws from a number of different schools of thought in the field including classical psychoanalytic/psychodynamic theory, humanistic psychology, Jungian archetypal psychology, CBT/mindfulness based practices, and solution focused therapy.
