I believe everyone deserves some time to sit down with a strong listener and/or problem solver about their life. The feedback that I receive is, that I empathize & mirror the key issues quickly and help you brainstorm. I then help you get at "reframing" the negative situations and help you motivate and prioritize what is needed to do to actually change. I can work well with mood issues, chaos, panic, addictions and all relationship issues. Every session you should walk away with substantial suggestions to help in different areas. I also work with work career issues, parenting, and women with breast cancer.

In many ways good psychotherapy is like a successful remodel, frequently resulting in a stronger and more spacious sense of one's self, lovely new rooms, remarkable views and better access to the world outside (and in). The journey of self-discovery takes courage, but increasing one's awareness of old limitations and obstacles, and developing the ability to gently and carefully dismantle and rebuild where necessary is incredibly rewarding -- often beyond what we can imagine. I believe that it's a collaborative journey on which we embark, moving together towards creating a more fulfilling and rewarding life for you.

Looking for a psychologist is difficult. It is important to find someone who is a close match with your needs. I approach therapy with an active style, providing direct feedback in a supportive manner. For more than twenty years, I have been successfully helping individuals and couples through EFT, find greater enjoyment in life. For therapy to work, I believe that the therapist needs to care about, and feel connected to, the individuals he or she works with. Psychotherapy is not just a job; helping people get better and live their life in a fuller happier way is something I strive for.

Have you been feeling not heard or understood, and isolated or ashamed? You may be wondering, “what’s wrong with me?” I know how painful it is to feel that way because I’ve been there many times, too. And I’ve come out of it with a few nuggets of knowledge and tools each time. For 16 years I’ve been helping people feel more connected to and loved by people around them as well as themselves by sharing knowledge and tools accumulated through my personal and professional journey. Human beings are social animals that need connection with others whom we trust and feel safe with to survive and thrive. That's why isolation is so painful.

I believe counseling is about finding meaning and purpose in our lives; about experiencing a deep level of self-trust; and about healing broken relationships. I use a solution focused approach inviting you to view your problems from a different angle. We'll focus on what things you can control and how to let go of circumstances beyond your control. I invite you to identify the sources of internal dialogue that generate self-doubt, anxiety and depression. Each week you will leave with small assignments designed to increase your self-awareness and self-confidence.

(Now accepting individual clients only.) It’s time to start feeling better. You've tried distraction, talking to friends. But like a ball pushed underwater, your feelings of anxiety, unhappiness or sadness keep surfacing. This distress impacts everything. Worst of all, these bad feelings, like a shameful secret, isolate you. It doesn't have to be this way. Asking for help is a sign of strength, not weakness. I am dedicated to helping individuals and couples recognize and overcome the obstacles between them and their dreams. Personal growth and increased self-confidence are natural outcomes of successful therapy.
