I offer psychotherapy and coaching for individuals and couples. My approach is collaborative, warm, and very interactive, lending itself easily to both short term goal oriented work and long term depth exploration. I believe that therapy should provide useful day to day tools for lasting change. To that end I specialize in helping couples communicate with one another in a manner that is collaborative rather than aggressive. I also offer professional coaching designed to help individuals better their communication skills in interpersonal relationships and the workplace.

We encounter many transitions in our lives. Transitions often come with intense life events such as moving to a new country, going through a divorce or losing a loved one. They also come at different stages of life like being an adolescent or growing older. We can feel depressed, anxious, frustrated and lost. I believe transitions provide an opportunity to re-examine ourselves and explore life’s meaning. Together we address issues of identity, interpersonal relationships, grief & loss, loneliness, immigration, and aging.

New year, time for a new you! You've felt numb for a long time. Stillness overwhelms you with anxiety as it gives your memories an opportunity to creep up again. So you stay busy, constantly moving, pretending you don’t need therapy for this constant anxiety. You do your best to avoid being by yourself and sitting with your anxiety and without things to do. But you want to crawl out of your skin. It takes a hard workout to feel ok for a moment. . .but it's temporary. You just want to feel like it isn't a struggle to live your life and that you don’t have to constantly be distracting yourself with work, with outings, with the gym.

Therapy doesn't have to be a mysterious and confusing process. I believe that it should be linked directly to one's personal goals and desire for change. I'll work with you to enhance your self-knowledge, expand your emotional awareness and thinking to provide you new ways of solving problems and enhancing well-being. My style is direct and collaborative and aims to identify patterns of thinking, feeling, acting and relating that reinforce fears and negative attitudes, thereby limiting your ability to pursue your goals. Exploring the underlying forces and dynamics driving those patterns opens up new avenues for growth and change.
