Are you struggling in your relationships with others, or with how you view yourself? Do you have problems at work, or are you grappling with a loss? Many times we may feel unhappy, or bland but are not clear about the causes and what we can do. Personal growth is a lifelong process, and at times, choosing to embark in a psychotherapeutic relationship can help. We all have the capacity to better understand ourselves and improve our lives. In our work together, you would begin to understand the relationship you have with yourself and how you navigate other relationships.

If you are struggling with sexual concerns, you have come to the right place. Some sexual concerns may include: low/high sexual desire, desire discrepancy, a sexless relationship, sexual difficulties (e.g. painful sex, early/delayed ejaculation), sexual trauma, rebuilding emotional and sexual intimacy, and unhealthy relationship patterns. Or perhaps you are struggling with compulsive sexual behaviors. You have realized that your sexual thoughts and behaviors are getting out of control, or you have discovered that your partner is compulsively using sex or porn. You are feeling understandably betrayed, hurt, angry, and confused.

I work with high accountability professionals who want something different from therapy. The individuals I work with excel in many facets of life, and also recognize there are issues they need help working through. Often the same issues keep tripping them up, so they show up willing to look within themselves and do the work necessary to make transformative changes. Whether my clients want better work/life balance, are having troubles with self-confidence, need help with their relationships, or are feeling stuck in a meaningless loop, we work together to understand their struggles more deeply and with greater nuance and compassion.

**100% ONLINE TELE-HEALTH/VIDEO THERAPY** I have spent many years working with a number of different populations, from Autism Spectrum Disorders to Eating and Feeding Disorders. The beauty of working in mental health for almost half my life is that I truly believe in the power of the therapeutic process and how we address the things in life that are no longer functional. The root cause of the distress is my focus because it demands such intricate and tactful navigation.

After experiencing a tragedy, trauma, or abuse, you may have intense emotions, nightmares, and disturbing images in your mind. Perhaps you isolate or disconnect, or you keep thinking about what you should’ve done, and question why it happened. Using substances, and having increased depression, anxiety, and anger are all normal responses. Whether you've been struggling for decades, or if this is a new experience, you can regain control over your life, reconnect with others, and rebuild emotional and physical intimacy that may have been lost.

Your child has become a teenager, and now life feels like you're navigating a storm. They have mood swings, anxiety, and depression. These things have clouded their mind, causing school to be more stressful, creating identity struggles, and making the family dynamic seem overwhelming. Concerns about the future and low self-esteem have added to mounting pressure to find help. Your teen has also developed a technology addiction, leading to isolation and loneliness, while hindering their social connections. You know this is a critical time for your teen. It breaks your heart to see them struggle, and you wish you knew how to help.

A client should feel empowered to express their current symptoms, needs and goals. A person's identity is not defined by a clinical diagnosis and subsequent treatment plan. An ideal client comes with some awareness and willingness to expose vulnerability and work toward their goals. At first, that task can be frightening and daunting. A client must be courageous and vigilant in the pursuit of their goals and on the path to healing. They do not walk that path alone, but lean on the support of a trustworthy, experienced and professional therapist that lights up a path.

Waitlist for new clients
While some individuals enter therapy with acute distress and specific problems that need to be addressed; others have a more vague feeling of discontent. In either case, the self-exploration of analytic work is meant to expand the way one thinks and feels. Learning to think creatively is one way to describe the goal of psychoanalytic psychotherapy. WIth guidance, an individual learns to hold the tension of multiple perspectives/emotions resulting in a flexibility of thinking that involves both analytic and imaginative parts of the mind. This "full thinking" can be applied to personal life issues, relationships and creative pursuits.

I believe that people are resilient and resourceful, capable of overcoming difficulties. Sometimes we get entangled in personal and relational patterns that can overwhelm our resources. I help clients identify these problematic patterns and empower them to break free from patterns that do not serve them well. I focus on my client's interpersonal relationships and relationships with larger social systems. I have experience working with children, teens, families, and couples on several issues, including family and couple distress, trauma, and various presentations of anxiety and depression through a systemic and attachment-based lens.
