If only I knew then what I know now about the mind-body connection; the integration of breathe, the power of intuition and the transformation that comes with stillness. I know what it feels like to want to crawl out of my own skin, to look in the rear-view mirror and to rush through miscellaneous tasks without real purpose. I am talking about the difference between living and existing. The difference between doing and being. You are not alone —- but you can’t do this by yourself because if you could, you would have by now. I specialize in addiction, trauma, eating disorders and relational conflict.

Are you or a family member struggling with an addiction, loss, stressful job or other personal concern? As an active and engaging therapist, I have observed that when the chemistry between therapist and client works, the process of therapy can provide a multitude of results: curbing self-destructive patterns of behavior, providing relief from painful emotions, increasing productivity at work, increasing behavioral control and achieving greater meaning in one's life. I believe that these meaningful changes occur when there is a joint process of discovery in which the therapist attends to the expressed needs and goals of the client.

Using psychoanalytic principles and a thorough understanding of addiction and recovery including, but not limited to the 12 steps, I can help you understand your relationship to your addictive substance and how to find your true self and create a relationship to this self that will set you free.

Whether caused by addiction to substances or behaviors, you can recover. Together we can do what you can't do alone or with the well meant advice of your friends and relatives. I would like to meet you and help you get started on the rest of your life with an understanding of how you came to the place you feel stuck in and how to move on to a better tomorrow. The hardest step in recovery is admitting you need help and making the call. You never have to be where you are again.

My 20+ years in college counseling, community mental health, addiction, hospitals, and now private practice has prepared me to address a range of issues.
The decision to seek therapy is often one people consider for a long time before making the first call. It's very important to me to make that initial contact as comfortable as possible, knowing that sharing painful emotions and experiences with a stranger is very difficult. I help clients identify what they want to gain from a therapy experience, and provide feedback all along the way to make sure we're working towards those goals. I feel very fortunate to be able to help enable people to enjoy more satisfying and fuller lives.
