Announcement icon During this time of public health crisis, I am working by phone and video. I will follow up new appointments by phone to make arrangements.
People typically pursue therapy to relieve suffering, to understand themselves and their loved ones more deeply, and to expand their capacities for satisfaction in love and work. Often it takes the perspective of another person, and the support of that person, to put these processes into motion. Therapy can provide the safe space to explore ways to solve problems, grow, and live more fully.
I am a general practitioner, with specialization in anxiety, depression, relationship troubles, life changes, and addictions. I offer individual therapy for adults and adolescents, and couples / family therapy. My approach is suited to the particular problems that bring you to therapy.
Since suffering can be hard to talk about, taking a first step toward therapy sometimes involves some risk. The special setting of psychotherapy is meant to give confidence, putting in motion processes of personal growth that typically involve relief, deeper understanding, and an expanded capacity for meaningful change.
