Perhaps your relationships, career, or creative pursuits are not going as you would like. Challenges around identity and sense of self may be plaguing you. You may feel bogged down by feeling frustrated, unmotivated, anxious, overwhelmed, guilty, ashamed, or sad. Whatever your struggles, together we can help you better understand what’s going on and what may be getting in the way of change. I take as a basic premise that you are more than a collection of symptoms or a problem to be fixed and believe that you and what troubles you deserve our full attention and thorough exploration with the goal of long-term sustainable growth.

I work with adult individuals and couples - supporting clients in developing a better relationship with themselves and the people that matter most to them in their lives. My style is warm and compassionate. Clients often share that they feel comfortable with me right away

My approach to psychotherapy is holistic. I not only treat the "tip of the iceberg" problems, but also address the deeper, "bottom of the ocean," issues. I treat the whole person and honor the mind-body-spirit connections, taking into account the client's cultural, religious and ethnic background, ancestry, race and immigration history. I recognize the complexity of each person's history and circumstances and employ a wide variety of techniques to guide my clients in their self-discovery.

Life can feel overwhelming--but it doesn't have to. If you have experienced trauma, whether recurring or as an isolated incident, even the typical stresses of a normal day can provoke anxiety, fear, anger, or withdrawal. Luckily, therapy can provide you tools to deal with life's challenges, enabling you to minimize your stress levels and continue your personal growth. I will guide you to increased happiness and well-being by supporting you in exploring and enacting lasting, positive changes in your relationships with others, and most importantly, with yourself.

Do you feel caught in self-criticism? Do you feel separate from others- or less than? Self-criticism can affect mood, sleep, relationships, and motivation. You might feel you've lost your sense of purpose- that a good life is out of reach. You are not alone. In this post-pandemic world, so many of us feel anxious and hard on ourselves.

Psychotherapy is a personal experience. I treat and support individuals and couples who are struggling with worries, sadness, and relationship difficulties, or who feel "stuck" in their lives in some way. I also have special training in helping individuals cope with medical illnesses, grief and loss, and trauma. As well, I work with high-achieving individuals who are striving for balance and personal satisfaction in their lives. I work collaboratively and compassionately to reduce current distressing symptoms and to examine long-standing patterns. My approach is interpersonal and psychodynamic.

"The more aspects of myself I am given the freedom to know and live without reacting to as right or wrong, good or bad, the more I can witness all the elements of who I am and the healthier I am" ---Diane Shainberg. As a psychotherapist, I practice with the belief that therapy can be a rich and vital exploration into understanding the deepest parts of ourselves.The parts we cherish as well as the parts we want to change.

We all find ourselves at times where we feel lost and confused. Things in our lives may not be going the way we want or we may find ourselves coming up against repeated stumbling blocks in certain areas of our lives. I believe that therapy can help us reconnect to parts of ourselves that we have forgotten about or lost track of. Having these parts back on board helps us to find deeper connection with ourselves, others and the world around us and leads to greater life fulfillment.

It takes a huge step of courage and humility to reach out for help, so thank you for showing up. Research supports time and again that humans are social beings who need connection and meaning. Maybe you are considering what has and has not been working for you in your life right now. Perhaps you imagine what life could be like and are willing to be active in the work it takes to get there... even if that means learning to accept where you came from and who you are now. You might be afraid to hope that things can get better, and that's OK. We can work together to bring that hope into reality.

Is one or more of your kids on the Spectrum or have the ASD/ADD/OCD triad? In your relationship, is one of you on the spectrum and one not and is that causing misunderstandings and problems? Are you on the spectrum and having trouble understanding the non-spectrum people and world around you? I can help you bridge differences and deal with conflicts and meltdowns in an empathetic and constructive way. Also, I work for with LGBTQ people and couples with a variety of mental health concerns like anxiety and depression. It's hard growing up different from your peers. It can cause low self esteem, crippling self doubt and anger.

Life can be complicated and confusing. Making room for joy, for satisfaction – for even a deep breath – can get pushed aside amid the demands of family, school, work, and the flood of world news. You may be struggling with newness, such as new parenthood or going away to college, or the loss of a loved one or a long-term way of living. You may have experienced a traumatic event, or be concerned with emotional eating. Or maybe you just feel that something isn’t quite right, as an individual or as a couple, even though life looks fine on the surface.

I believe that we heal and grow best in a welcoming and supportive environment. My goal is to create a safe space where we can explore together your thoughts and feelings and guide you to a place of deeper self-understanding of your strengths and challenges. Often, this process will enable you to find new ways for dealing with problems, experience more fulfilling relationships, and be more effective in recognizing and meeting your needs, and realizing your desires, and aspirations. These changes reduce discomfort and stress and allow you to feel more alive and fulfilled.

I offer psychotherapy to families, couples and individuals. People come to therapy for different reasons, whether it be a life changing event or just needing support. In the end, we all want supportive nurturing relationships with ourselves and others and I believe that therapy can help people work towards those goals. My approach is collaborative, non-judgmental and supportive and I am very down to earth and personable. I work with people from diverse backgrounds and ages and I am knowledgeable and affirming of open or non-monogamous relationship. I truly love the work that I do.

Meaningful relationships are an essential part of fulfillment and happiness. I believe in the unique power of the relationship that develops between therapist and client. Through an exploration of this interaction, we can more wholly understand your past and current relationships and help shape future experiences. I work with people who are struggling in a variety of ways and are ready to dig in and do some difficult and deeply powerful work that will lead to greater choice and freedom. I view my opportunity to join individuals in their journey toward self-understanding as a great privilege and find the work exciting and gratifying.
