I am committed to helping individuals and couples gain insight and make behavioral changes to enhance their lives. My focus is on relationships with friends, family, romantic partners and/or the workplace as I believe engagement in these areas is an important aspect of living a satisfying and purposeful life. I also work with those struggling with addictions, compulsions, self-destructive behavior (especially eating disorders), and balancing the competing demands of life. My professional strengths are reflected in a nonjudgmental stance and an ability to help people examine themselves and make the changes necessary to live in a more fulfilling life.

It takes courage to face emotional and relationship problems. With over 20 years professional experience treating clients and consulting to businesses, I specialize in helping people find and utilize their strengths and sideline their difficulties. With children and adults, I specialize in treating complex anxiety, attachment, and learning issues and developing talent and leadership. Once clients are freed from the crippling impact of excessive anxiety, emotional dysregulation, or self defeating behavior patterns, drawing upon Positive Psychology and Mindfulness techniques helps us identify and capitalize on personal strengths. Clients are able to heal - thrive - grow - bloom into excellence.

I enjoy working with children (9+), teens and adults. I see couples and families helping them live happier, more relaxed, and fulfilling lives. I am respectful of my client's time. I frequently check in to make sure that the sessions are helpful, and that we are focusing on what the client wishes to. If one approach is not working, we try another! When people are feeling anxious, depressed, or angry, often the problem is their stress level and lack of a support system.

I hear every day how stressful life is. You may feel like there is no time to focus on your self-care. So many people are feeling worried, sad. and have too many thoughts flowing through their minds. Many people are feeling that life stressors, life transitions, relationships, their job, or extended family are creating high amounts of stress in their life. These things can make it difficult to focus, sleep, or find happiness in their life. Life is so busy and the daily news only increases everyone's stress level. On some days you may have energy and on others, you may just muddle through. I know it is frustrating and tiring

People seek psychotherapy feeling unhappy or helpless to bring about change in their life or fulfill their dreams. Patients are overcome with symptoms of depression, anxiety, eating disorders, substance abuse or other problems, which in reality are unconscious defenses, blocking repressed feelings about something that went wrong, often in childhood, which is not yet resolved. These defenses once were adaptive, by protecting and helping them survive, but are no longer effective. I help people work through their underlying grief and face their feelings (sadness, anger, disappointment, yearning, powerlessness) surrounding trauma or loss, enabling them to engage in more free, authentic, satisfying lives.

The way you experience our lives around us, is vastly shaped by our learned experiences in the past, especially as children and teenagers. Ideally, a child should learn how to navigate the world with confidence, feels secure and safe, skillfully assured of his/her own ability to problem solve. When someone suffers from anxiety, depression or personality disorders, he/she have been forced to develop different set of skills, mostly on his/her own, designed to defend the body against either perceived or real traumatic events.
