I believe that each of us has the capacity to heal from our experiences, no matter how difficult, painful, or traumatic. Though the circumstances that cause our pain may be shared, the journey of healing is an entirely unique and personal one. My goals are to help you define your journey and provide a landscape where you feel seen, heard, and above all else, safe along the way. Whether still setting your course, or well into your journey, therapy can be deeply rewarding.

Dara's psychotherapy practice is dedicated to helping young adults (aged 18-38) work through challenges related to this phase of life. Young adulthood is a time of great opportunities related to building satisfying relationships, careers and establishing one's own path. Along the way many get stuck in indecision, doubts and fears. For others, stress and unresolved issues can lead to mental health challenges including depression, anxiety and addictions. Expectations of parents and culture can contribute to the pressures and sense of isolation. Working collaboratively with his patients, Dara brings empathy and compassion to work.

My goal as a therapist is to provide a comfortable setting that allows you to get the greatest benefit from our work together. In addition to traditional office sessions, I offer flexible solutions including phone, teletherapy, or home visits. Emotional issues can trigger or make a significant contribution to anxiety, skin conditions, skin picking issues and hair pulling (trichotillomania) issues. Relaxation, visualizations, and a mixture of cognitive behavioral therapy and body-focused psychotherapy can make the difference. You can take more control by discovering how to manage your emotional triggers and by developing strategies to alleviate anxiety, skin issues, skin picking, and hair pulling.

My practice focuses on psychological evaluations for children, adolescents, adults, and seniors. Some reasons folks seek my help is to assess for autism, intellectual deficits, learning disorders, ADHD, as well as to address possible depression/anxiety that often accompany these conditions. In some cases, I am asked to perform testing to inform the efficacy of ADHD/ADD medication through the use of continuous performance testing. My approach is to learn about the whole person rather than rely on tests alone to produce an evaluation best suited to your needs.

I have been trained by one of the leading experts in addiction, Dr. Patrick Carnes. I use his task based model which has a 97% success rate. This is a proven, practical method for leading people out of the trap of addiction and into a fulfilling life. Addiction affects everyone in the family and therefore, I am also trained to work with spouses and/or parents of addicts. If you think you may be addicted, visit my website where you can take an online test and receive instant results.

Usually we work together, but also see clients 1:1. I also supervise therapists. We have authored two books on our work to be published soon. see Couple-CODE.com

It is important that my patients feel respected and encouraged. My job is to really listen and help you feel understood. I also think my role is to give you lots of feedback and not just be a passive listener saying, "uh, uh, hmm, I see, hmm". I am a coach, cheerleader, teacher, confidante, and accountability partner. The biggest complaint I have heard over the years about any past therapists whom patients felt were not helpful was the complaint that the past therapist was way too passive. I work best with those that want a therapist high in empathy but is not passive.

If you are dealing with hidden difficulties or tremendous physical and emotional pain, confidential help is available. Whether pain is thrust upon us or chosen, I understand the complexities of this predicament. Being "stuck," relational and sexual frustrations, medical issues, anxiety about how to get through the day, are all are situations that can change with assistance. You start to change your predicament the moment that you are able to reach out and work with a trusted individual. These problems do not need to become worse and your path is not decided. The path ahead is unknown.

The focus on this therapy is on your "process," working how you flow or get interrupted in your abilities to stay fully present. Since we all have our process, everyone is welcome in my practice. The ways we get challenged can result in dynamics that show up as depression, anxiety, etc., becoming highly reactive or more disengaged. Sometimes the manifestations are from more recent events, and sometimes from more developmental patterns and traumas. I've found that blending EMDR with a somatic process approach helps the work to be as efficient as possible.

There are things about relationships that all of us find challenging. Communication with your spouse, partner, or children for some. Trauma experienced by yourself or someone close to you. We could insert 100 other examples here, but no one should have to try to figure it out on their own. There is someone out there that can support you on your journey, and I hope that person is me.

If you feel stuck or overwhelmed by the problems in your life, you are not alone, and there is hope. You are not "broken," "bad," or "crazy"! It can be scary opening up and trusting another with the intimate details of your life. I’ve been there too, and I'm here to help you through the process. Therapy can support you in becoming unstuck from the patterns preventing you from creating a self-directed, meaningful life. I'm committed to being fully present, genuine, and purposeful during our time together.

There are many paths up the mountain. I believe that each individual is as unique as the pathway they select in life. On every path there are difficult challenges that bring questions. Why do I feel this way? What am I missing? Is what I'm feeling a mental illness? Is my brain functioning properly? Do I need professional help?
