I offer psychotherapy with a touch of magic. I believe that talk therapy can bring healing in a short time. I treat people who have a variety of situations and I am deliberate in achieving better client outcomes. I use Social Psychology to examine the individual's struggles in dealing with the environment's demands especially during times of crisis. I recognize that stressful experiences can be spirituality exhausting to deal with and I can help you cope. I also use a Psychodynamic approach to explore the experiences of the past and change the present.

Treatment of adults may consist of psychoeducation; training in relaxation or mindfulness meditation; cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic , emotion focused, or other types of therapy for individuals or couples (including sex therapy); or EMDR.
Seeking a trusted therapist who best meets your needs can feel risky and requires courage, especially in the midst of life challenges that feel confusing or overwhelming. Burnout might affect your ability to function at your best. You may be experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD, chronic stress, or health-related concerns. You might be trying to cope with some type of disability, memory, mild traumatic brain injury, dementia, or other cognitive problems in yourself or in a loved one. More commonly, one or more of your relationships may feel strained and a fresh perspective could be helpful.

I assist clients in developing a clinical understanding of their emotions/behaviors in the context of their relationships with others. Assisting clients to understand the connection between their thoughts, feelings and responses helps them gain control over themselves and their environment. When life happens, and we are in the midst of chaos, our brain gets stuck and begins to believe that there are no options available; but sometimes we need a push, an emotional support, or just someone to talk to, to help us un-knot the chaos in our mind.Life skills are essential problem-solving behaviors that we need to manage our lives properly.

Making the choice to start therapy can be intimidating, but taking the steps to care for yourself and your mental health shows that you are ready for some change. In order for this change to develop, I place immense value on the importance of the therapeutic relationship and provide a safe space for clients to feel understood, challenged and empowered without feeling judged. I want all of my clients to feel as though therapy is a safe place to vent, laugh, cry, gain insight, and grow as in individual.

I really like helping people, all people and I firmly believe that everyone deserves help. I have over 24 years professional experience and when you are in my office you get all of that experience focused on you and your life. We can have sessions while hiking or biking if you choose. The World Health Organization declaring Video Game Addiction, I have developed a 5 week program to assess and address this issue. If you believe that your child is spending too much time gaming? If their primary relationships are with other gamers, or with the game? If they frequently isolate to play games, your child has crossed into addiction.

Hi, there. I know you've been searching for the right therapist, and I know it's frustrating to try to find someone you connect with. Whatever brings you here, I understand that trying to "have it all" in today's world is a goal that feels unachievable. Whether you have been feeling overwhelmed with worrying thoughts, not feeling like yourself, are grieving, going through a major transition, or want to work on your relationships with yourself and others, I believe we can make sense of it all together. You do not need to have all the answers all alone.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
