Short-Term Mental Health Counseling
PhD, MPH, MA
Short-Term Mental Health (STMH) Counseling supports high-functioning adults experiencing grief, depression, stress, anxiety, life transitions, and relationship concerns through both counseling and referrals to a diverse range of clinical psychologists, licensed marriage & family therapists, social workers, and complementary/alternative practitioners. The techniques employed at STMH counseling draw from foundations of Adlerian, CBT, and Gestalt therapy. Successful treatment is a product of a client’s thoughtful engagement and demonstrated willingness to participate in the dynamic process of self-discovery, creation, and regulation.

I use a holistic approach to help you create the changes you seek, integrating insights from mindful self compassion, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Gestalt , Hakomi, and Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy.
I believe each of us carries an inner healing intelligence, and that healing and growth are possible no matter what experiences have you brought to this moment. I provide a warm and compassionate space for you to develop wellbeing, offering acceptance, deep listening, and curiosity. You may be hurt by traumatic events, a difficult upbringing, or feel burdened by past or current relationships and life events. By exploring this burden, and processing stuck emotions and memories, you can gain a sense of safety, hope, inner strength, and serenity.

Are you feeling helpless in dealing with your child/teen emotional and behavioral issues? Do you feel lost in connecting with your child/teen? You want to help them but don't know how? I have been working with children, adults, and families for over 15 years to bring out their potential in mindfulness, creativity and relationships through individual and family therapy. Through this process, clients get to know themselves better, in a safe and supportive environment. I develop a therapeutic relationship based on their needs and goals. My experience includes treating individuals with depression, anxiety, anger, and trauma.

Better - that's what you want; to be better, do better, and feel better. My goal is to help you get to your "better". You may feel alone with your experience or that no one would understand what you've been through - you may not even understand it yourself. But trust me when I say that you are not alone, and you CAN reach your goal! Whether this is your first time seeking therapy or you have been down this road before, I can help you to heal mentally and emotionally, to learn how to have a better relationship with yourself and others, and to develop the insight to reach your greatest potential.

It may very well be that our deepest longing and need is for connection. To be heard and understood. To be known in places where many others are never allowed. To be more connected to the lost neglected parts of ourselves and those we care about. You have this opportunity in the safety of psychotherapy. It isn't always an easy road. Perhaps this sounds intimidating. Often it entails letting go of destructive habits or getting unstuck. We may need to look at old patterns and create new ones. There may be moments of laughing, crying, or facing hard truths.

In all phases of life, we face constant change and unexpected circumstances. Even for those who are strongly independent and resilient, life can be overwhelming at times. Therapy can be a space to explore the parts of life that feel uncertain and unmanageable, and identify where you want to go from here. Building the foundation for growth in therapy starts by creating a safe, genuine space where people can feel heard, understood, and valued for the person they are. I believe that people can foster long-term growth through understanding their journey, connecting with their true emotions, and empowering choice with authenticity.

You already possess the inner resources and capacity needed to heal. At certain times, however, we all need help gaining access to that nurturing capacity: a kind of 'Assisted Self Discovery.' When our minds, bodies, & emotions are all supported together in a safe process of present-oriented exploration, the potential for change is remarkable. I utilize an eclectic approach. Each session is tailored to your unique needs & personal goals. Long-lasting symptom relief/decreased suffering & achieving a more fulfilling life are priorities that guide my work with clients.

By now you probably know that fighting about the dishes is never just about the dishes, issues in the bedroom are never just about sex, and infidelity is never just about an affair. Each of these are but tiny reflections of larger dances we do with our partners that give light to how we fight, how we communicate, and ultimately how we learned to love.

Do you somehow feel like you just don't fit into your life? People I work with often feel like misfits, even though - from the outside - they may appear to be doing just fine. I help people see through their trances of unworthiness, shame, distrust, and inferiority. These trances often stem from identifying with outdated stories from the past. These stories often have deep roots in the mind, heart, body, and spirit, and can take time to unearth and unravel. I offer a safe, sacred space where these stories and early traumas - that are showing up today as persistent "problems"- can be explored, understood, and ultimately released.

Are you struggling with anxiety and trauma and turning towards unhealthy coping mechanisms in an attempt to manage your emotions? Now is a trying time for almost everyone, and if you have a trauma background what's coming up in the current environment may be reminiscent of the stress, isolation, and fear induced by early childhood experiences. You don't have to handle this alone, and with clinically tested techniques to regulate the mind and body, it's possible to shift from a place of disempowerment to strength.

Gestalt Therapists
Gestalt therapy seeks to integrate the client's behaviors, feelings, and thinking, so that their intentions and actions may be aligned for optimal mental health. The therapist will help the client become more self-aware, to live more in the present, and to assume more responsibility for taking care of themself. Techniques of gestalt therapy include confrontation, dream analysis, and role playing.
