How did you decide it was time to look for a therapist? It’s usually emotional pain - anxiety, sadness/depression, grief, relationship problems - that brings you here. And addressing the source of that pain is the start of our journey. We’d begin with a 15/20 minute phone call where you lay out what you’re dealing with and I give you some sense of how we would begin to tackle it. Most therapists offer this and it’s a really solid way to feel into whether you want to work with someone. I have seen over and over that the pain that brings someone to therapy - if you work with it - is actually a gift.

My goal is to support your resilience and connection to that which helps you thrive. We'll explore the areas of your life that are interfering with this flow, allowing space for anything and everything that needs to come up. Drawing on a somatic, or body-oriented approach to psychotherapy, we may pay attention to how your thoughts, emotions and feelings are being stored or expressed in the body. This approach can be useful in helping us discover unconscious blocks AND resources in you, allowing you to gain a more embodied sense of self and wellness.

By the time most couples come to my office, they're frustrated, discouraged, and tired of going in circles. Many think their problems are insurmountable, that they're beyond help. Very few couples are beyond help. If your relationship is in trouble, don't wait. And don't give up. I have been in practice for nearly 30 years, specializing in psychotherapy with couples. I bring extensive training in relationship dynamics, marital systems, and sex therapy. I use a collaborative, positive approach that makes sense of what's hard and offers tools and encouragement to even the most troubled relationship.

I work with adults in their 20s, 30s, and early 40s who are feeling stuck or unfulfilled and can’t pinpoint why. Often my clients are dealing with big life transitions, such as a career change, relationship beginnings or dissolutions, or new parenthood. The first few decades of adulthood are an exciting time of self-discovery and building the life you want to live. But they can also be stressful and overwhelming. I’m here to help people have confidence in themselves and their decisions.

Sucks to live with thoughts, feelings and beliefs that aren’t welcoming, hopeful or kind, doesn’t it? When that inner stream is clouded with shame, negativity or apathy, therapy can be a filter to clear out the toxins and make way for the new - the braver, the steadier, the integrated; the you that has the room and gumption to flourish. Getting acquainted with your badass, authentic self deserves your full attention, intention and compassion.

Since 1989, I have been helping people uncover, explore, and work through barriers to authenticity and aliveness. Together, we bring into awareness the thoughts and feelings that can interfere with being more fully engaged with yourself or others. You may feel that you don't know yourself or can't be yourself; that decisions are difficult to make or impossible to follow through on; or that connections with others are empty or unsatisfying. Taking a closer look at what's getting in the way can make a difference.

Sometimes we experience difficulties that we can't seem to solve on our own. It may be a life transition that creates unexpected challenges, such as graduating, changing jobs, becoming a parent, or losing a loved one. It may be a relationship problem or a difficult situation at work. Or it may be more of an internal struggle, in which we find ourselves feeling anxious, lonely, or stuck. Sometimes we just have a vague sense that something isn't right, that we're not as happy or as fulfilled as we could be.
