Whether your decision to make changes involves freedom from painful limiting beliefs, release from repetitive relationship patterns, or transformation through sincere self-examination, I help people to fully realize the person they are destined to become. I work with adults, couples, teens, and families, helping them to successfully attain short-term goals and craft long-range solutions by utilizing a variety of approaches matched to their specific needs or expressed desires as they learn new ways to address life's challenges. As a level 3 Gottman couples therapist, I work with couples utilizing John Gottman's evidence-based theory.

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.

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.

Welcome! Are you looking for support for yourself or someone you care about? I'm hoping to help. I find it particularly rewarding to work with people during transitions in their lives such as a career change/s, reconstructing life after a divorce, high school to college transition, newly married, grief support, new parents, or empty nesters, just to name a few. I value the process of helping my clients prioritize themselves and their needs as they navigate difficult and often inspiring times in life. Developing coping skills and self compassion will lead you to make decisions in your life that support your sense of wellbeing.

Any scary event or even a medical diagnosis can wreak havoc & any daily routine is quickly found unmanageable. If the physical body fails you, it affects your mood. If emotions are out of wack, it affects your health. Either way, you deserve to feel in control and you can reclaim control. The goal is to highlight your strengths and minimize or eliminate any obstacles to healthy wellness. A direct benefit of engaging in effective help elevates your protective factors against emotional decay now a known correlate with disease. Together we can restore a sense of control, balance, and develop your future goals. You deserve to be happy.

I treat adults as well as adolescents and children, most frequently through individual therapy. I also work with couples. I work with people with a wide range of problems and especially enjoy working with people experiencing anxiety in relationships or at work . I also enjoy working with people who are unhappy and don't know why, and people who are repeating self-defeating patterns they feel unable to change. Meeting with a well-trained and experienced therapist can be a powerful and effective way of strengthening one's confidence and developing a personal sense of control over one's life.

I am a compassionate and caring therapist with 30 years of experience. My first priority in therapy is to lower your distress and give you hope for the future. Together, we uncover the triggers and negative patterns that lead to your unhappiness, and then build a personalized "tool kit" of coping skills, specifically designed around your life challenges. By doing so, you develop a stronger sense of self and compassion for your suffering. With this new understanding, you learn to honor and listen to your authentic self, which is the ultimate key to happiness.

Recovery from narcissistic abuse and Childhood Emotional Neglect (CEN) are two of my areas of focus (among others).
Are you Super Loyal? An excellent listener, who perhaps doesn’t share much about yourself? The one everyone leans on for support, advice, money, or favors? Are you the glue in your family, and the one who puts out fires? Many of my clients who identify with these kinds of qualities struggle in characteristic ways. Many are uncomfortable acknowledging their own feelings & desires. They make too many sacrifices to avoid being "selfish". They fear confrontation and the possibility of upsetting or disappointing others. They often get drawn into imbalanced relationships... or worse, toxic ones with selfish or narcissistic people.

Daughters of narcissistic mothers have been trained to put their own needs and feelings aside.
Is your mother driving you crazy? Do you feel guilty for disliking her? Is she so full of herself that you feel there is no room for you? Are you struggling with the pain associated with your relationship with her? You feel terrible that you can't seem to get it right. Maybe you even blame yourself for the relationship not being what you wish it was and think you can fix it. For years I have been helping women unravel complicated and painful mother-daughter conflicts, which often involve maternal narcissism.

Therapy is a powerful tool for changing relationships with your partner, family, or other significant people. Most importantly, it includes your relationship with yourself. My more than 25 years of experience as a psychotherapist has shown that when people improve how they treat and view themselves, even in small ways, the benefits are enormous: less stress, emotional turmoil, anxiety, and negative thinking; more confidence, contentment, life balance, and self-acceptance; and better communication with those you love.

You’re frustrated and unhappy in your relationship. Fear of being alone is keeping you stuck. You pretend everything is fine, so nobody knows things aren’t perfect. You’re overwhelmed, sad and at a loss as to what to do. You’ve tried to fix things, but hit a wall together. You just want to feel loved again. I hear you. I’ve been there.

I seek to provide a thoughtful and reflective setting where clients develop greater understanding of their problems and limitations through honest exploration of themselves, and to bolster strengths/foster growth. I provide a friendly and open atmosphere to invite sharing of whatever thought or feeling that comes up so that they can be explored, analyzed and ultimately changed if you want. I work in a collaborative way and do not necessarily see my role as an advice giver, but as a thoughtful companion in helping you find your own solutions and understanding. I use a flexible blend of clinical techniques and theories.

Narcissistic Personality (NPD) Therapists
Narcissists cut a wide, swashbuckling figure through the world. At one end of the self-loving spectrum is the charismatic leader with an excess of charm, at the other end reside individuals with narcissistic personality disorder, whose grandiosity soars to such heights that they are manipulative and easily angered, especially when they don't receive the attention they consider their birthright. Narcissism involves cockiness, manipulativeness, selfishness, power motives, and vanity-a love of self...and mirrors. Narcissistic mothers or narcissistic daughters are a common discussion in therapy, although beware of the temptation to use the label because we all have a sense of ego. Personality traits related to narcissism include: Psychopathy, and Machiavellianism.
