"My individual clients want help getting unstuck from painful thought patterns that, like a needle in the deep groove of a record, make it impossible to hear anything else. Their life feels like a series of repetitive patterns - they keep doing the same thing over and over, or dating the same type of person over and over. Many of them are talented and high achieving, yet relentlessly critical of themselves. The couples who come for counseling want help getting unstuck, too. They have the same fight over and over again. Or the physical intimacy is all but gone from their relationship and each of them feel too stuck to initiate sex."

"Are you struggling with anxiety about a major life transition? Are you running on empty and fighting a sense of constant overwhelm? Are you finding yourself repeating the same painful relationship patterns time and time again? These scenarios, and others like them, make life hard and can make us feel completely alone. But you’re not alone. Therapy can help. When we go through difficult times, we often experience anxiety, sadness, numbness, or anger. We think that life might be falling apart. Reaching out to a therapist is one of the first steps you can take toward building the life you want to live."

"My goal in therapy is to facilitate self-exploration in an attempt to heal and make sense of difficult situations, emotional states and relationships. I do this by providing a safe space to explore, free of judgments and agendas. Many of us get stuck in particular patterns just like grooves in a record and we never get out of those patterns. Through work in therapy we can create new grooves that result in different responses to the situations, emotions and relationships of life. The aim of therapy is to develop an awareness of our cognitive, behavioral and emotional patterns so that we can change them."
