What matters to you? Being curious makes a significant difference when you are thinking of making changes because now you are interested in yourself - in what you think and feel and want- and want to become. Are relationships your core concern? - wondering what is working and what is not, what is missing, and what is disappointing?Losses or fear of loss makes us anxious, ashamed, often traumatized by our own feelings. I am committed to working with your personal needs in a trusting, creative, dynamic, caring process and will help you achieve what you desire. Real changes take real time.

You often feel sad and don’t understand why, or how to feel relief. You avoid activities that could be enjoyable, which affect your relationships and social life. You lack the motivation or energy for daily tasks that used to be automatic. Maybe you experienced a horrible event, or a painful, stressful period in your life and you believe your life is forever changed. If you experienced this struggle prior to Covid-19, your feelings are likely heightened right now.

If you struggle to stop or reduce substance use or other addictive behaviors, I can help. I use a harm reduction approach to understanding and treating substance use and abuse. Instead of focusing only on one’s addiction, this approach explores other contributing factors, such as co-occurring mental illnesses, family relationships, and medical problems. It encourages the client to explore their unique needs and background, and to develop their own treatment goals, which may involve moderation management, in addition to abstinence. I also offer treatment for other impulse control disorders, such as sex addiction.

We can't change our destination overnight but we can change our direction. A deep and felt understanding of how and why we live our lives can allow us to reorient ourselves to a more fulfilling life. I believe that therapeutic treatment must be tailored to each individual person seeking change. I work with adults who have endured trauma, feel anxious or depressed. I see couples that have drifted apart, struggle with anger, parenting difficulties and adolescents overwhelmed with the highs and lows of emerging adulthood. I also work with expectant parents and infant parent dyads having difficulty connecting with each other.

You've spent years in talk therapy, have hit a plateau and are wondering if you’re not meant to fully heal or if therapy actually works. You are bright, sensitive, and big-hearted but either feel like you’re stuck on ON (easily startled, racing thoughts that are difficult to control or turn off, struggling to relax and feeling flooded emotionally), or stuck on OFF (flat, lethargic, exhausted, foggy, unmotivated and disconnected from your vitality and energy). It is possible to deeply heal- you just need a more innovative and dynamic approach to do so.
