I work with depression, bipolar disorder , panic disorder, ADHD, grief and recovery from abuse.
There comes a time when we need help. I appreciate the courage anyone demonstrates when they make that call. I hope to create a space where individuals and families can receive that trusted assistance. I have been a therapist for thirty years. I was a tennis pro for ten years before that. I am aware of the process of change. There is a timing when an individual, or family, is ready to make those adjustments. In working with children, I involve the whole family. I especially enjoy the travels that the adolescent makes, and the perplexing attempts parents make in adjusting to this challenging phase. I work with addictions.

There are more than three hundred therapy approaches to address a range of problems that afflict individuals of various ages at any given time. Of these approaches, only a handful are what are deemed to be evidenced-based practices; these are treatment strategies that have been researched, implemented, and proven to be effective. It’s not easy to ask for help for various reasons. Some may consider it a sign of weakness, others may fear that seeking help for their mental health means one is “crazy”.

For the 22 last years I have worked successfully with adult clients dealing with a wide range of issues including marital and relationship problems, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, abuse issues, personality issues and mental health concerns. I believe a trusting relationship between the therapist and client is the foundation for all growth and change. However, the relationship itself is typically not sufficient. I will help you set goals for your therapy based upon what you would like to have different in your life, and together we will explore and change the blocks which have prevented you from achieving your goals.

Trauma can broadly be defined as any event or situation that has a lasting negative impact. EMDR is an highly effective form of psychotherapy which harnesses all we know about human attachment and neurobiology to heal trauma and to reprocess disturbing life experiences. Treatment focuses on past experiences as the basis for clinical complaints; current situations that trigger dysfunctional emotions, beliefs, and sensations; and positive experiences needed to enhance future adaptive behaviors and emotional health. Focused protocols are used, and no homework or detailed descriptions of the events are required.

As a therapist, I am passionate about walking alongside folks as they reveal their truths and vulnerabilities to themselves. I believe, and have witnessed that people are capable of long standing change with knowledge, support, and connection, and that therapy is a great place for that. You can learn new ways to manage life stressors, feel safe, gain confidence, and live a more joyful and purposeful life. I use cognitive behavioral, solution-focused, and strength-based techniques, while never ignoring the human element and connection where the real change happens.

Patients come to treatment with different goals, so a therapist should encourage patients to share those goals and work collaboratively to find the right approach.
