Are you feeling alone? Unfulfilled, afraid, stuck, stressed, or detached? Are you or your loved ones repeating behaviors, relationships, or situations, and wishing you could break the cycle? Maybe little things feel more frustrating or tiring than usual. Sometimes, we aren't sure what causes our distress, but we can sense we're not reaching our potential for health, happiness, or success. And even when we know the cause, change can still feel impossible. That's where I come in. My job is not to judge you--it's to listen, help you understand the root causes of your difficulties, and teach you practical tools to help change your life.

I believe compassionate therapy should take place in an atmosphere which is personal, professional, and confidential and for 30 years I have worked with a variety of individuals, couples, and families. If you are reading this it probably means that things are difficult now and you may be struggling. I help with this by enhancing your awareness and esteem through a combination of insight and acceptance. I believe that therapy enriches every aspect of our personal and professional lives. My work with couples focuses upon building intimacy in the relationship by providing tools for communicating, understanding, and working together.

If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, your past, your present, or your future, you don’t have to do it alone. A shift in perspective can profoundly affect how we feel and what we are able to do, or stop doing, in our lives. Talking with someone who is both objective and 100% on your side can help you see things from a new angle and move forward in new ways, with someone who cares standing behind you.

If you're reading this, you're searching for something. You could be in intense crisis or have a desire for personal growth. Do you need the nonjudgmental, listening ear of someone outside of your everyday life? Maybe you want relief from depression and/or anxiety. Perhaps you have recently been through a difficult life event or significant loss? Maybe you are simply trying to navigate a developmental transition. Are you struggling with relationships? Are you feeling alone and isolated? Therapy can be intense and uncomfortable. At the same time it's incredibly validating, rewarding, and life saving/changing if you put in the work.

I help children, teenagers and parents find hope and resilience through the tough times. Parents want good things for their children: to feel confident, communicate well, make good friends, cope with hard things, and succeed academically. But it can be so hard when your child struggles with anxiety, sadness, inattention or low self-esteem. You may feel frustrated and confused when they refuse to follow directions or are frequently angry. Many parents feel helpless as they try to help their child or relate to their teenager.

Author and psychologist Alice Miller once wrote, “Consciously experiencing our legitimate emotions is liberating. Repressed emotion can be resolved as soon as it is felt, understood, and recognized as legitimate.” Dr. Miller’s words capture my work as a psychotherapist. It is my hope to help my patients legitimately experience their complex emotional worlds in order to cultivate a rich and meaningful life. Although this is no easy task, I offer my partnership on this journey toward relief and healing, both internally and interpersonally.

These are challenging times that can lead to feelings of anxiety, uncertainty, and loneliness. It can also be a difficult time to hold hope when the world feels so chaotic. My desire is to provide a space that is warm, compassionate, and empathetic so you don't have to deal with these feelings alone. I typically work with people experiencing depression, anxiety, PTSD, relationship difficulties, grief, life transitions, and issues related to spirituality. I work with clients to process pain centering around issues of belonging, self-worth, and safety so they can find new ways of relating to themselves and the world.

One of the bravest things you can do is start therapy! People come to therapy for all kinds of reasons--feeling sad, scared, anxious, empty, angry, not sure of who they are, wanting to be someone different. But mostly life as they know it is isn't working and they are open to heal, change, and grow. I consider therapy a safe space to explore and try new things in order to make your life better. This process also involves talking about vulnerable topics, which usually requires courage and commitment to the process. Even if someone is not fully sure about therapy when they start, having some willingness and openness is essential.
