Therapy only works when there is a "sense of connection". Research discovered that for therapy to be successful, the client needed to have a feeling of connection. There are two parts to that: 1. You feel like the therapist really knows what they are doing. 2. You feel like the therapist REALLY gets who you are. For me, the art in therapy is the ability to listen between the lines to be able to understand the nuances that make you, you. You should know in the first session whether the therapist is the right fit for you.

I provide psychotherapy to people who would like to find healing, happiness and peace in the midst of life’s challenges. Critical elements of my approach are deep and persistent compassion, acceptance, collaboration and partnership. My goal is to help you develop strategies and coping skills, cultivate new attitudes and increase insight while all along holding space to honor your journey and inner strengths. This is done by exploring the functions behind emotions, thoughts, behaviors and beliefs, all of which are valid and important, but can be difficult to interpret in the chaos of everyday life.

Lasting change occurs in therapy when one identifies and works through their concerns that have been outside their awareness. I develop a non-judgmental, intimate working alliance with my clients, in order to facilitate this self-understanding, both emotionally and intellectually. Such work fosters growth and creative responses to long standing difficulties in relationship to one's self and others. In return for investing themselves fully, my clients are offered the freedom to be more completely who they are, while also being able to maintain close and fulfilling relationships.

Adolescence can be a very challenging time for teens and their families. Although developmentally it is a particularly wonderful time of exploration and curiosity for teens, sometimes things do not go as expected. Individual adolescent therapy and sessions incorporating parents and /or families can make this time much easier to negotiate. I see primarily adolescents, and often incorporate parents and families into treatment planning. Presenting issues may range from anxiety and depression to substance abuse and eating disorders where I hold additional certifications and trainings. I also see adults with persisting eating issues.

Therapy can be a source of tremendous relief and gratification. Unhappiness and anxiety that feel unbearable can lessen and disappear when you have someone who can help you understand the reasons for your suffering. A good therapist can also help you more easily get your mind off upsetting thoughts that preoccupy you. Or if you find yourself acting in self-defeating ways, studying it with a therapist can be of enormous help. Ideally, you will leave an initial consultation with a new way of thinking about the problem that brought you in.

I believe that feeling safe is the most necessary factor for us to create change in our lives. Each of us deserves to feel valued for who we are. Often our life experiences, beginning in childhood, have convinced us we are undeserving of happiness and good things. How can we create the life we long for if we don't believe we deserve it? Sometimes it is necessary to unlearn some of the distorted messages that came out of childhood. I can help you uncover what is in your way and help you to heal.

You have tried everything—done all the yoga, lifted all the weights, read Brené Brown’s books, but none of it feels like enough. There is still that thing (or things) that keeps coming up and gets in the way of you living your best life. Perhaps you are still full of anxiety or quick to anger even though you’re meditating every morning. Maybe you’re drinking too much, feel disconnected in your relationships, or just can’t seem to find the right relationship—whatever it is, you feel trapped in this cycle and recognize that you might need some help getting out of it. If this is resonating, you are not alone AND there is hope.
