Life events, transitions, and stressors -regardless of how big or small- can cause distress. These struggles can impede or stifle personal growth, relationships, and overall satisfaction. My hope is to help to reduce the negative, undesirable impact of stressors and increase the positive, proactive possibilities.

Psychotherapy is an individualized service to help someone in an impasse in life. Anyone may get stuck in efforts like: a young child in school, a student with academic challenges, an adolescent with identity questions, or an adult dealing with career choices or trying to maintain an intimate relationship. Each person is unique, so that we will first spend some time understanding you, developing trust, and establishing initial directions for our joint efforts. Therapy may vary in length, depending on what your concerns are: a few sessions, a few months, or more extended if to your benefit.

We all want to feel good about ourselves. We want positive healthy relationships and live our lives as fully as possible. But sometimes life or relationships can become difficult and overwhelming. People come to therapy because they want to feel better. I respect the courage it takes to reach out for help in seeking a greater understanding of yourself and to work toward personal growth. My role as a therapist is to help you overcome the obstacles keeping you from feeling the way you want and from fully enjoying your life.

You may be successful in all other areas of your life, but feeling stuck in a frustrating cycle of misunderstandings with your spouse. At the end of a long day of work, parenting, leadership, you may wonder why you can't make your relationship move past the daily conflicts and enjoy a supportive connection with your life partner. You are longing for peace and harmony in your home and worn out from constant tension, late night arguments, lack of sleep. I can be your “relationship coach” helping you make real time adjustments to your communication so you can work thru hurts from the past and begin to work together as a team.

I work with children, adolescents, young adults and their families during periods of turmoil and crisis. Your son or daughter has become more distant; grades are less predictable; friends may have changed and there is more conflict at home. Intuitively, you know something is going on, but aren't able to reach them. This is often the time where a therapist can bridge the gap.

My goal is to help people connect with themselves and others in meaningful and satisfying ways. Connection with the self allows acceptance and enjoyment of life without fear, suspicion, self-judgment, etc., which can prevent us from living life to its fullest. Connection with others allows us to "double our joy and divide our grief." Addressing issues such as depression, self-esteem, or anger can enhance our abilities to know ourselves and be fully present with others. I use an eclectic therapeutic style so that the work can be tailored to fit each client in each session.

I provide a supportive and collaborative approach to therapy. I believe it is important to teach clients strategies to use throughout their life, so that when they leave therapy, clients feel more confident to cope with future difficulties in a positive way. Learning skills along with self exploration can lead to progress in a shorter amount of time. Clients of all ages can benefit from this approach.

I believe that every individual is a whole and healthy being. Trauma that occurs in childhood or later in life creates a block that makes one feel less than whole and far from healthy. Because of this, anxiety, depression, addictions to substances, food, and other destructive behaviors become a way of coping. My goal is to help my clients restore the feeling of wholeness and well-being by providing a safe, supportive and nurturing environment in which they can work through difficult issues and restore their true selves. I see it everyday...

I offer a warm, caring and understanding environment so that insight, self-esteem and personal growth can develop. We work together so that you can become your BEST self. To quote Socrates: "the unexamined life is not worth living". A glimpse into our past, helps us understand the present and creates the foundation for a better future. Accessing and understanding our feelings starts the process of knowing ourselves and others, allowing us to take personal responsibility and making healthier choices, that ultimately leads to positive, life-long changes.

One of the most important aspects in therapy is for patients to feel heard, respected, and understood. Given that each individual is unique, and no one issue is ever the same among different people, our approach is integrative and tailored to meet the needs of the person, not the "problem". we strive to create a compassionate, non-judgemental environment for patients to learn, grow, explore, challenge, and to live the life they want to be living. We specialize in working with adults - individual, couples, and family - with anxiety, depression, PTSD/trauma, relationship problems, substance abuse, ADD/ADHD, and LGBTQ issues.
