I have a particular interest in working with adult children of narcissistic parents.
We all have difficulties in living. Problems of self esteem often underlie these difficulties. Resulting depression and anxiety, compulsive behaviors such as overeating, overspending, alcohol abuse and unhappy, frustrating relationship choices, can be changed. My style of working has developed over many years of practice and is interactive. Clients would most likely describe me as warm, and responsive. While serious in my work I have a good sense of humor; which I believe is essential for a productive, happy life.

Daughters of narcissistic mothers have been trained to put their own needs and feelings aside.
Is your mother driving you crazy? Do you feel guilty for disliking her? Is she so full of herself that you feel there is no room for you? Are you struggling with the pain associated with your relationship with her? You feel terrible that you can't seem to get it right. Maybe you even blame yourself for the relationship not being what you wish it was and think you can fix it. For years I have been helping women unravel complicated and painful mother-daughter conflicts, which often involve maternal narcissism.

Despite huge advances in modern technologies to extend life expectancy and increase physical comfort we have made only modest progress in relieving human psychological suffering that manifests as mood disorders and anxiety. It appears that many of our attempts to "fix" ourselves frequently backfire. My approach is highly collaborative and uses the most up to date discoveries in the field of behavioral science to help you "have a mind without your mind having you". Together we can help you gain flexibility that reduces suffering and learn skills that increase values-based living.

In individual therapy I join with the patient to establish a relationship in which we will explore developmental relational issues that cause pain and suffering. Such issues begin as intense emotions, but they can be understood, accepted, and integrated. This process leads to healing and change. Life takes on new perspectives as the emotional self provides new information about the external and internal world that brings stability and vitality to the personality. The relationship between us deepens allowing us to explore the complex dimensions of personality that allow for growth and development unique to the individual.

My work focuses on those who are attempting to navigate through serious psychiatric problems such as depression, anxiety, trauma, substance abuse or living in a household with someone who struggles with substance abuse or addiction. I help teens, stuck young adults, and stressed families navigate the perilous journey to find serenity and sanity in their daily lives. Throughout my decade and a half of experience, I have learned that effective treatment starts with dignity and authenticity. These factors lay the foundation for the most important aspects of successful therapy: safety, honesty, and courageous vulnerability.

I seek to provide a thoughtful and reflective setting where clients develop greater understanding of their problems and limitations through honest exploration of themselves, and to bolster strengths/foster growth. I provide a friendly and open atmosphere to invite sharing of whatever thought or feeling that comes up so that they can be explored, analyzed and ultimately changed if you want. I work in a collaborative way and do not necessarily see my role as an advice giver, but as a thoughtful companion in helping you find your own solutions and understanding. I use a flexible blend of clinical techniques and theories.

I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist who came to practice later in life and believe my life's experience makes me a better therapist. I enjoy working with children and older adults in life transitions. I treat children who suffer from anxiety and depression and those that are victims of abuse, abandonment, and homelessness. I support Transgender & Gender Non-Conforming Clients. I also work with adults facing a life transition. This may be caring for an older parent, loss of a loved one, or a life threatening illness. These situations trigger a mixed bag of emotions that can be overwhelming.

Most people suffer from unconscious guilt and shame stemming from their childhood traumas. Guilt causes us to unconsciously do self-destructive things. Shame causes us to isolate ourselves and hide our true selves. Both guilt and shame make people feel undeserving and isolated. My approach to therapy is to help patients find relief from their irrational guilt and feelings of shame and to develop a realistic sense of pride in who they are.

Through many years of teaching and practicing Brief Psychotherapy, I have learned the value of a highly active, focused and interactive approach-- both for long term and brief psychotherapy. Whether the patient is an individual or a couple, I view my task as helping to define appropriate goals and keeping the therapy on track. While the purpose of the therapeutic journey is mutually decided and the patient is an active partner in evaluating the route, I particularly direct the journey when it turns to the past. While history is invariably interesting, therapeutic efficiency requires exploring only what's potentially most useful.

Sometimes life leads us down an unknown path. Something unexpected happens. A job is lost, health falters, a relationship get shaky. Life comes in bringing unforeseen challenges. These challenges force us to take stock of our lives.

You are not broken. It is human to feel loss, sadness, anger, fear, or unworthiness. Recent advances in neuroscience can help us understand why we feel stuck, sad, stressed, scared or alone. When we begin to understand the implicit/unconscious feelings/beliefs that automatically run inside of us we begin a journey that can lead to more awareness, and therefore to more choice in our lives. The hardest part of this journey is the first step; to make your growth a priority enough to tolerate the discomfort of facing what isn't working.

You and your spouse are not in a good place. One of you is ready to walk away, and one of you is desperately hanging on. You've had tough times in the past, but this feels different. If you've made several attempts to make it work, and find yourself back in a hopeless place, divorce may seem like the next step. If you are the one hanging on, feeling confused about what's happened, you are desperate to keep things together. The idea of divorce is terrifying to you. You both feel misunderstood, your experience of the marriage does not align. You cannot agree about anything.
