However, I've also worked with a range of individuals with a variety of life experiences around issues such as life transitions, trauma, anxiety, grief, as well as gender and sexual identity.
We are all inherently whole- we've just forgotten... Underneath the tumult and overwhelming flood of uncomfortable emotions is a core unscathed by the stress and trauma. My role is to help you find your way back to your center where life again feels manageable, satisfying, and vibrant. Ultimately you're the expert; yet each step of the way I will be there with you to collaborate and support your efforts. At Gateway Psychiatric, where I practice, clients have the added benefit of seeing their therapist and psychiatrist in one location, where we consistently collaborate for your benefit.

I view psychotherapy as a joint venture in which we work collaboratively to reach your goals. My style is direct, transparent and positive, warm, interactive and nonjudgemental. I create the safety needed within our relationship to allow us to explore the issues that underlie depression, anxiety, loneliness, lack of fulfillment and other concerns. As a therapist I follow your lead. With over two decades of experience I work diligently to understand each individual, employing elements of psychoanalytic, mindfulness and cognitive behavioral theories to create an approach that best suits the unique individual with whom I am working.

I work with adult individuals, couples, and adolescents struggling with sexual and emotional abuse, codependency, relationship issues, self esteem, anxiety, stress, work-life balance, life transitions, trauma and PTSD, depression, loss, grief, and spirituality.
Life is a journey, and sometimes we feel stuck or lost. My role is to support your unfolding journey towards healing and growth. Together, we can explore your experiences, see how earlier relationships continue to influence the quality of later ones, understand developmental transitions, and explore your belief systems and values. As the mystery of existence opens up, we come to understand what our life's journey is about. I believe that our potential is far greater than what we allow ourselves to experience.

I work with folks experiencing depression or anxiety to make positive change right now, in well-proven methods for feeling better by making conscious changes to how we tend to behave and think in challenging circumstances.
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.
