Perhaps you desire more satisfying relationships. Or you long for an end to blue moods, constant worries, or food struggles. If so, I am here to help. Fortunately, your decision to seek counseling is a positive first step. In my practice, I teach individuals how to reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety; guide couples toward more loving connections; help clients with eating challenges to accept themselves and manage harmful habits; and provide constructive feedback on career issues. I also work with singles seeking partners and wrote "How to Get Married After 35" (HarperCollins Publishers) as an inspirational tool for them.

FRUSTRATED with the SLOW PACE of others? Having difficulty COMMUNICATING with loved ones? Can't understand IRRATIONAL behavior by a partner or colleagues? Are you accused of being TOO INTENSE, COMPLEX or DRIVEN? These are all ways that intellectually gifted individuals may feel, without understanding what's causing it. Gifted individuals possess an intellectual complexity and emotional intensity that can lead them to experience life in ways qualitatively different from the norm. This can lead to challenges in COUPLES relationships or PROFESSIONAL settings. I have spent over 30 years working with gifted individuals, and am a CERTIFIED EFT COUPLES Therapist.

August 2022: I am accepting new clients for both in-person and virtual sessions. Sometimes life feels overwhelming, or we feel stuck, or maybe we just wish we had more enjoyment in our lives. Perhaps it seems like everything "should" be okay but there's a nagging feeling that something is wrong. Therapy can help address these issues. I believe we all have the desire and capacity for positive change and growth. My approach builds upon this belief and incorporates creative and practical tools tailored to your unique circumstances.

Beginning therapy can feel daunting. I provide a safe and secure place for you to feel comfortable and begin to gently explore what's keeping you stuck or feeling hopeless. I believe that empathy, acceptance and authenticity are the the keys to building a trusting therapist-client relationship. Together we will explore patterns that are no longer working for you, or preventing you from personal growth and healing. I am passionate about embarking on your personal journey of self awareness. I draw on a variety of orientations including Emotion Focused, CBT, and psychodynamic theories and practice in order to meet each client's needs.

It has been a challenging time, to say the least, and with that often comes a need for change. In therapy, we will explore what you are feeling and make shifts to create a more authentic self/life with what you want. Therapy is helpful to discuss life stressors, navigate difficult choices and explore patterns that are causing us to feel stuck. Sometimes we can get stuck in our patterns and find it challenging to make those changes alone. I believe my job is to help you on this journey and provide the necessary space to do so.

I specialize in working with young girls, teens preparing for college, and the twenty-something's navigating adulthood. Change is inevitable and I believe that talking through what is happening can provide an individual with a higher level of clarity and insight. Regardless of what has prompted you to seek therapy, I encourage you to contact me for a free phone consultation so we can connect and discuss how therapy, and this process, can best serve you.

With all life's pressures sometimes we put our own needs aside. This can manifest itself anywhere from burn out to anxiety and depression. My goals as a therapist are to provide a safe and supportive environment in order to help improve and nurture healthier relationships for my clients. I will work with you to discover, and uncover, the things that get in your way personally and/or professionally and help you gain a better understanding and acceptance of yourself.

Are you feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or stuck? Do you find yourself repeating negative patterns? Do you want to make positive changes within yourself and your relationships? I believe that therapy is a collaborative process in which we together determine what you need. Years of experience contribute to my ability to create a safe space that will encourage deep exploration into understanding your emotional concerns. Often after completing the therapeutic process, many come to discover that they have more choices in their lives and report feeling more optimistic and alive.

Finding a psychotherapist you feel comfortable sharing your thoughts and feelings with can seem like a great challenge. As you search, it is helpful to be mindful of what is bringing you to therapy and what you are wanting from a therapist. When you find someone you think you may be able to bond with, you can talk with them about what you are looking for and if you don't know, ask them how they envision working with you. As a psychologist with over 30 years of experience, I believe that meeting the client where they are is the key to creating a safe and supportive environment conducive to change.
