I have been a Marriage and Family therapist for over 25 years. I enjoy working with and helping couples and individuals who are having difficulty finding joy and happiness in their lives. I believe strongly that we all are trying to build a healthier life, but sometimes need a little help understanding the things that get in our way. We get in a rut, repeating the same destructive behaviors and feel hopeless about ever getting what we really want and need. I can help you identify negative patterns, understand where they come from and change them into effective, self affirming strategies.

Is worrying waking you up at night? Does anxiety seem to sneak up on you when you least expect it, or make you feel like you can't live the life you yearn for? Are you tired of feeling so "frozen?" You're so much more than just your symptoms. Feeling anxious, frozen, or sad simply takes up too much energy that you could be using to feel happy, productive, and free. Isn't it time to get unstuck?

TEENS - your happy outgoing child has been replaced by a secretive/withdrawn, irritable/defiant teenager, creating worry, anxiety, chaos. You find yourself reacting to your teen, rather than enjoying a happy family. You've tried everything - bribery, setting boundaries, making demands, hurling threats. It's only gotten worse. Worried over the cause of your teen's change - addiction, (alcohol or drug abuse), ADD/ADHD, body image/self esteem issues (anorexia, bulimia, cutting, weight) bullying, maybe your pending divorce...anxiety, depression, school, suicide attempts, suicide of a friend or family member...

High Functioning Anxiety may have worked for a long time, but now it could be taking you over, leaving you feeling stressed, overwhelmed, and at a loss of what to do. When you are normally able to handle it all and now you feel like you can't, it is frustrating and discouraging. This in turn can start to wear on your body and make you feel tired and sad at times and then the next thing you know keyed up and anxious.

I would characterize my style as being one of openness and warmth, empathic, and having a genuine interest in the client's needs and goal. I believe that therapy should be collaborative between client and therapist and that the ultimate goal is to foster responsibility and autonomy, both of which foster a more fully functioning person who has learned through insight, self-awareness and problem-solving how to handle current and future situations.
