My approach to therapy is integrative and blends mindful therapy with several other approaches including DBT and RO-DBT, Emotionally Focused , and the Gottman Method.
Are you feeling disconnected or having a hard time getting close to others? Are you feeling stuck and unable to communicate in an intimate relationship? I work with individuals, and couples to help them live more connected and meaningful lives. It is my hope that you connect with a therapist that is the right fit for you; if that person happens to be me, I look forward to embarking on this journey with you.

I have advanced training in Psychoanalytic and Psychodynamic Therapy, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, Mindfulness and Compassion-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
There are many things that draw us to therapy. Some arrive struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, or career uncertainty. Others have difficulty managing  the roller coaster of emotions inherent in the peri- and postpartum experience, while some simply want a space to engage in deeper reflection. Whatever your goals and challenges, I welcome the opportunity to see whether I may be a good fit for your journey.

Most people are kinder to others than they are to themselves. Having an internal critic who is constantly beating you up inside can lead to anxiety, low mood, and relationship problems. As my clients develop greater self compassion, they see amazing changes in many aspects of their lives.

Our aspiration for a wholesome and fulfilling life often leads us towards the path of healing and growth. Psychotherapy is a powerful medium for this transformation. In my practice, I strive to create a safe and confidential environment for deep reflection on the self and on relationships. This serves as a catalyst for changes including alleviation of stress, anxiety and depression as well as bettered connections with others. Collaborating with you, I customize and teach a tool box of techniques for you to use at home, work and play.

My ideal client does not have any set of qualities specifically. I pride myself on being flexible and willing to understand different perspectives, as long as the client coming is willing to talk with me. I have experience working with anxiety, social issues, mood problems as well as with children. As a client of mine, I'm open to starting wherever the client is, and even to support through a self-discovery to find what kinds of things my client would like to learn.

If you are new to this process it is not uncommon to feel a motley of emotions when entering into psychotherapy. Clients I see are open and willing to do the "hard work" to improve their lives. I focus on the "whole being" by addressing inner and outer worlds, the mind as well as the body. I encourage you, whatever reasons you have to seek therapy, to allow yourself the time to finding both a good fit with a therapist and an approach to therapy that feels helpful to you.

We’re unfortunately not born with a manual on how to live life. It’s unpredictable complexities jolt us out of the path we had so carefully planned for ourselves, and leave us in a place of feeling lost. These obstacles can appear in various ways; parenting, relationships, work, loss, violence, and sometimes do not appear at all except for a knot in our stomach. What does one do when the next step is not clear? It is in these moments of uncertainty where I can be of help. There is no right or wrong reason, or person, for therapy; it is an opportunity to put life on pause for an hour, while we work together to uncover the next step.

Finding the RIGHT therapist makes all the difference in your experience and is critical to making the positive changes you desire. This is a personal decision that should meet your specific needs. It is important to pick a therapist with whom you feel comfortable and whose style fits you. My therapy style is warm, empathetic and inviting but can also be challenging. The work I do with patients is deep rooted - which means at times you may feel uncomfortable. However, my patients grow and challenge themselves in ways that continually surprise them.

Do you dream about a better life for yourself? A time and a place where your healthy self lines up with your best intentions and allows you to manifest new behavior? Can you believe you deserve this better life, but inner forces, such as anxiety, vagueness and low self-esteem, rise up and thwart you from attaining it? I specialize in helping individuals and couples find the courage to look at these and other stuck points. Two key areas of personal suffering I have some expertise with are money concerns and chemical dependency. Here"s a brief word about each:

Welcome. I have over 10 years experience in the field of psychotherapy (talk therapy). Through the years, I have worked with clients facing a range of stressors, from natural transitions, to abrupt grief and tragedy. It is a normal part of human development to find oneself faced with overwhelming emotions and at a loss for what to do next. These are the times when a licensed and compassionate clinician can be an asset for creating healing and change. At the heart of my work, I aim to help each client turn a season of challenge into an opportunity for character transformation.

Human Nature has adapted, grown and embraced change throughout our history. As a child, adult, or couple in a relationship, you can explore tools to meet your specific needs. By identifying old triggers and tapes, you can let go of what you have outgrown. Your previous strengths can carry you from who you have been, to who you choose to be. With this old resilience, you can allow change and expand your experiences. You can step forward toward a new vision of you. Choose a "do-over". Learn to accept your changes with self compassion and a renewed curiosity for self expression. Move from resistance to acceptance to simple joys.

My goal is to provide you with compassionate understanding and a clear plan for moving forward, whatever this means for you. It may mean overcoming anxiety or depression, improving your relationship, helping a struggling teen, or finding your way after a life change or loss. It could also mean helping you enjoy life more, regardless of what is happening around you. I have been providing therapy to individual adults and adolescents, as well as couples and families for over 20 years. I work with a diverse range of emotional, behavioral and relationship issues, utilizing the most effective research-based treatment models.

Are you ready to understand your own mind and uncover the root cause of your suffering, so you can then create a life you don't want to escape from? Do you have emotions or trauma that need to be processed? Are your relationships following a pattern that is not ideal or needing mediation with you and your partner to open up and speak your TRUTHS so you can live in a dynamic of peace? Are you feeling stuck, purposeless, unmotivated? If any of these are true, then it is time for a shift. Working with me will give you the medicine, tools, strategies needed to release the emotional suffering and live from your heart.

I believe change is rooted in making the unconscious conscious. Rather than just treat the symptoms you may be struggling with, I enjoy journeying deeper with you, trying to understand the root of the issue. As you grow to understand your mind, you will begin to make more mindful, intentional life choices, toward a more satisfying life.

Are you unhappy in your primary relationship? Have you suffered the loss of a love? Are addictions (yours or your partners) hurting you and the people you love? Would you like to have a more fulfilling sexual relationship with your partner? I have been helping couples increase emotional and physical intimacy for over 20 years. I take a directive approach to helping couples communicate more effectively. Often they find this results in more frequent supportive and loving interactions. Therapy can help you become more empowered in all your relationships. This often results in being more productive at work as well.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
