Welcome! Are you worrying about your important relationships, career, parenting, adult children, or health? For over 20 years, I have helped people with anxiety, depression, and grief feel better and change for good. You want to feel happy, but a painful past keeps you in the same patterns despite your best efforts to change. Fear and worry make it hard to feel secure in your decisions. You want to be more successful in managing when to control and where to just let go, but feel stuck. You try so hard, but the choices you're making just aren't working out so well and your tired of feeling sad. You are not alone, I can help!

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.

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 specialize in working with adults, families, children and teens who are struggling with the ever increasing stress we face on a daily basis. Often symptoms manifest as anxiety and depression, and when one member of the family is in crises or requiring extra care it can take a toll on the whole system. I have worked with families and children who are struggling with mental health for over a decade, and I understand how frustrating it can be to find the right kind of help. I'm here to offer practical solutions and support as we work together to achieve positive changes.

My primary theoretical orientation is Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT). This means that I attend to your thoughts and feelings and to how they influence emotion and overall well-being, now and in the future. CBT offers a number of strategies for promoting change in the direction of one's long term goals. For our treatment to be most effective, you will need to be an active participant and collaborator in establishing your goals. I also ask that you work on treatment in between sessions, and I frequently give homework assignments to assist in the process.
