"Every day I meet with individuals and couples who are in the process of overcoming worry, depression, conflict and dissatisfaction to find greater joy, fulfillment and meaning in their lives. Therapy works. If and when you decide to take that first step, I think you will find me to be an insightful, responsive and non-judgmental individual with an extensive therapy "tool kit." My approach is interactive and personal. Together, we will engage in a process of exploration to clarify your concerns, access deeper layers of understanding, and find more effective answers to new or recurring life issues."

"Anxiety and depression often signal that something important is going on . . . just beneath the surface. Making sense of this pain, how it's guided you in the past, and its current role in perceiving the world, your place in it, and how to get what you truly desire is at the core of our work. Meeting weekly, or more frequently, therapy provides an environment to help reflect,understand, and grow. My experience and interest encompasses formal diagnoses (abuse history, serious mental illnesses, and trauma) or that less defined, more pervasive sense that something is just a little off."

"A sense of security provides the basis for emotional exploration. Often times the experiences that bring us to therapy have interrupted our ability to fully feel secure with and trust others. I create a facilitative environment where your thoughts and feelings can be safely explored. Through this process you and I will learn about your inner world and how your mind works. Emotional growth occurs when we gain new perspectives on ourselves and our relationships. This growth begins in a secure space where new understandings can be reached and the possibility of living a fuller life can come into focus."

"My approach to psychotherapy is based primarily on cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) principles of exploring and understanding the connection between our thoughts, emotions, and behavior. I seek to create a safe, warm and nonjudgmental environment in therapy, while helping you to identify key patterns and specific barriers that are stopping you from living a more fulfilling life. The purpose of therapy is to help you to find new ways of relating to your thoughts and emotions, deepen awareness and insight into your patterns, and learn effective coping skills -- ultimately to help you attain your goals and foster balanced living."

"Life satisfaction is directly linked to how we cope with life's challenges. When we participate in escapist behavior (drinking too much, overindulging on sugar, avoiding confrontation, Netflix binges), we can feel stuck and hopeless. We get caught in these painful ways of coping because they work, at least temporarily. I specialize in helping clients get unstuck by incorporating brain-based education and suggestions for change.

Whether in school, work, or our everyday lives, the need to constantly achieve can put great strain on our self and those we care about. This can lead to chronic depression or anxiety, social isolation, feelings of inadequacy, or even thoughts of suicide. It is hard to break out of this culture.
