"I help kids and teens who feel like they are never good enough become comfortable in their own skin. As a parent, you know it is normal to worry sometimes about your kids, but this feels serious. Your child is always stressed out over what feels to you like nothing. She’s saying she feels worthless and every discussion ends in tears and yelling. It’s hard for you to know how to help. This is *such* a tough place to be for both parents and kids. I work with your child to help them find the good within and learn how to calm their anxious and sad thoughts. I also support you as a parent."

"I work primarily with people who are dealing with anxiety or depression and my primary model of treatment is Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT). I believe that our difficulties are more often as result of how we are thinking about our problems rather than the problems themselves. CBT provides skills and tools for coping with your thoughts as well as the difficult emotions that come along with your thinking. CBT can also be helpful for procrastination or for being withdrawn. My professional work can be characterized as being active, empathetic, compassionate, energizing and motivational."

"Your life has been lived in intersections of race, class, gender, sexual orientation, ability. You’ve never felt quite accepted anywhere. You're suffering daily insults, aggression, or invalidation. You feel trapped in others' expectations and uncertain how to help yourself remember who you are. You have a feeling there's something different about you, but you're not certain what or how to harness its creative potential to be what and how you've always wanted to be. Or you’re new to town and struggling to find your people. Or you’ve survived something horrible, and you're trying to figure out how to get your life back."

"I use an interactive, supportive approach to help adults, teens, couples, and families work through anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, and self-defeating patterns of behavior. In my work as a developmental psychologist over the past 25 years, I have dedicated my career to understanding and reversing the effects of early adaptive patterns that evolve into difficulties later in life. I enjoy helping people work through these difficulties, some of which can be extremely painful and debilitating. Without such help, this can be an impossible task. Lack of self-acceptance and expectation of rejection are always near the center of the problem."

"ASSERTIVENESS COACHING: GET WHAT YOU WANT AND IMPROVE RELATIONSHIPS Most of us don't like conflict. Some of us worry that by expressing our true feelings, we will be seen as selfish or confrontational. Fearing rejection, we push their needs aside, but are disappointed when we don't get what we want. This cycle can lead to withdrawal, resentment, anger, and depression. Being assertive is often confused with self-centeredness and aggression. Learning the difference can pave the way to greater self expression, and life satisfaction."

My clients tend to describe me as relaxed, unconventional, and thoughtful in my style of practice.

"In my 30 years of practicing psychotherapy, I have treated virtually every psychological problem imaginable. I have learned that it is crucial to see every person as unique and special, and to tailor my therapeutic interventions to meet individual emotional needs. While my therapeutic orientation is based on Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, I am flexible and inventive in crafting healing strategies. For anxiety related problems, such as insomnia, PTSD and phobias, I use hypnosis to calm and soothe emotional states, while simultaneously coaching my patient to change the habitual thought patterns that activate feelings of panic and doom. Emotional pain can also be ambiguous and complex. In these situations, I use dream interpretation and hypnotic regression to gain insight into the cause of the distress to most effectively provide life changing interventions. For marital/relationship conflict, I provide a functional analysis of what each partner needs to change to allow the relationship to work. We then practice these changes until they occur spontaneously. When shopping for a therapist, choose someone you like who has experience treating the problems you want to address."

"Life is a journey full of varied experiences. Sometimes we get lost and confused about our life’s meaning and purpose. I work with individuals, couples and families. I am certified in Emotion Focused Therapy. This therapy seeks to reframe thoughts by identifying feelings and behavioral responses to thoughts and feelings. It protects the value of “being present” in a moment. This process often involves identifying and staying with feelings both easy and difficult and has the goal of fostering that sense of safety in attachment to people places and things - that keeps us connected to ourselves and others in the world."
