An area of focus in my practice is working with parents, couples and families in times of adjustment and transition, particularly in the early years of parenthood. Parenthood can be very demanding especially when you're trying to maintain a career and relationships with your partner, family and friends. I work with clients to give them communication tools and self-care strategies as well as increasing self-awareness and personal insight.

Are you struggling with anxiety and feelings of uncertainty in the age of coronavirus? You're not alone. Understandably, you're worried about what the future will bring on many levels: socially, economically, and then there is the concern for loved ones and their health. Your usual coping strategies are no longer available to you, and the isolation and confusion aren't helping.

Many of us hold on to what is familiar, routine and predictable, even when what we cling to is no longer serving us. Letting go of what is known is one of the hardest parts of growth. Change and growth are possible when a sense of security, safety, and genuine understanding is present. I provide individualized, culturally-attuned and effective psychotherapy. You might have tried psychotherapy before, and perhaps it brought you through a stormy time, but ultimately left you to find yourself repeating well-worn patterns and holding the same insecurities that led you to seek help initially.

Therapy should be easy to understand and active from the word go. We don't just talk about the problem or figure out why the patterns are there; we hit the ground running with action and get you feeling better as soon as possible. I work with a lot of folks who have tried therapy before and been disappointed when insight and understanding don't lead to change, and folks who are trying therapy for the first time and want it to be practical and clear. I start with a free 20-minute phone consultation.

I specialize in effective couples therapy. Additionally, I work with adult individuals, and men with issues in the area of sexuality and intimacy. In working with couples I find it useful to focus on & support self-responsibility, communication (very much including listening - especially when listening is hard), expectations, self-awareness, and building skill in how to remain intimate when relating becomes difficult. Through the whole process I integrate a focus on kindness without abandoning or avoiding the truth. I also specialize in assisting and supporting men with building the skill and ability to feel and share their feelings in intimate relationships.

Being a licensed psychotherapist since 1986, I've worked with a wide variety of issues. I know that pain and suffering are inevitable in life, but being miserable is optional. With warmth and humor, I am skilled at helping clients make meaning of the suffering, while facilitating and eliciting options that lead out of it. I work with couples and individuals of different races, ethnicities, sizes, orientations, genders, and ages. Therapy is the process of examining your life as a great novel in process of being created. My job is to help you envision and shape the next chapter.

I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist. I am also certified in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing). My theoretical orientation is attachment focused, and I frequently employ the use of EMDR. I work with folks of all ages. EMDR is a psychotherapy technique that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma. Using the protocols and procedures learned in EMDR, clinicians help clients activate their natural healing processes.

You're feeling generally dissatisfied, like you drew the short straw. You make it look not too bad on the outside, yet feel unfulfilled in relationships with lover, family, friends, coworkers. You have concerns about overdoing something (drinking, working, internet), or a generalized anxiety, perfectionism, or people-pleasing. I am a highly interactive therapist. I know when to bring in humor--and when to go to the dark places with you. Together we will look at how you got here. Through identifying your beliefs, attitudes and needs around relationships and intimacy, we will find the key to unlocking your wellbeing.
