I have experience in pre-martial counseling, marriage counseling, divorce , domestic violence, challenges as an adolescent or parenting an adolescent, communication, relaxation techniques, goal setting and achieving, crisis management and passages through lives challenges.
Do you ever ask yourself, "Why do I keep doing the same things but expect different outcomes?" Or "Do I look at the world differently than all my family and friends?" Life can feel stressful, overwhelming, and out of control at times. I try to help life feel a little bit more manageable and work through issues at your own pace. Psychotherapy is about an exploration of self and the world around you. As a psychotherapist, I am here to provide guidance through this exploration in a safe place and to improve interaction with those you love.

I help kids, teens, and families experiencing divorce create a fulfilling “new normal” by moving from stuck and overwhelmed to thriving and free. I know that you are more than a person going through a divorce . It is overwhelming to ensure your kids are supported, especially while you are learning what it means to be a single parent, navigating the impossible waters of being a healthy co-parent, adjusting to the new financial realities, and not to mention dealing with your own heartbreak.

I have worked with countless women, assisting them in times of grief, separation & divorce , peri & post menopause, career loss/change, empty nest and other life transitions.
Helping women through life transitions is my passion. As women, we are the helpers, the nurturers, the givers and the teachers. But let's be honest, sometimes we find ourselves facing challenges that feel overwhelming and we feel alone, anxious and depressed. I want to assure you that you are not alone and that it is okay to ask for help.

I work with people challenged by loving someone who is addicted to alcohol, sex or drugs, or challenged by the life transitions of marriage, pregnancy, new parenthood, parenting adolescents, divorce and death of a loved one.
Marriage can be extremely challenging, especially if your childhood was less than ideal. I help couples learn to listen to each other and talk about difficult issues without being triggered by past events or experiences. These reactions can cause defensiveness, or result in attacks on, or withdrawal from, the other. I help change these patterns, facilitate productive discussions and help you get the love and closeness back in your marriage. Couples can heal, become stronger in their bond and rejoin in love even after an affair or infatuation. I have 29 years of experience as an insight-oriented psychotherapist working with individuals and couples.

It is complicated to chose a therapist from such a long list of possibilities. It is equally challenging to tell you about my work in a few short paragraphs! Nevertheless, here I go: I can help with anxiety, depression, grief, lack of direction, life transitions - marriage, divorce , life threatening illness, empty nest - as well as early trauma, spiritual crisis and sexuality issues. I am fairly interactive and I maintain a sense of humor, even in the midst of very difficult situations.

Personal experience has prepared me to work with couples (including separation and divorce ); parenting and special needs parenting; LGBT issues and teens.
Humans are social animals - by nature we need to feel connected ("in relationship"). Life today is SO stressful! If we feel connected we can manage our stressful lives. If we don't feel connected then it doesn't matter what else is happening - life won't feel very satisfying. Through the therapeutic process you and I will work on improving your relationships with yourself and others, which can help you feel more safe and secure, and that your life is more meaningful and satisfying. When your relationships are better, you have more focus and energy for life!

Many people feel disconnected from their true selves going through life looking o.k. on the outside but feeling awful on the inside. This causes all kinds of symptoms: depression, irritability, anxiety, alienation, boredom, dissatisfaction, lack of motivation, and disinterest in life. Through our work together, I help you to access deeper parts of yourself which can bring back vitality and meaning into your life. Problems often arise from childhood issues or from life transistions; college, marriage, birth, divorce , or death of a loved one. Through developing a deeper connection with yourself suffering can be transformed into growth and strength.
