In a safe, non-judgmental space I can help you identify the thoughts, narratives and distorted core beliefs that cause you suffering, keep you repeating the same patterns and block you from a higher quality of life.

For many, one of the hardest things to do is ask for help. Congratulations! You are taking the first step by considering therapy. I often tell my clients, "nothing changes, if nothing changes." Now, more than ever, people may need assistance due to their everyday stresses of living. It can be overwhelming to try to balance family, career and relationships. Or maybe you have had a recent life experience which is causing you to seek help. Sometimes people are simply looking to gain more self-awareness and to grow emotionally. Whatever your reason, therapy can help.

You are smart, hardworking, and psychologically-minded. Your wellbeing is important to you and objectively, most things in your life are going well. Yet, feelings of anxiety, sadness, loss, emptiness, or disappointment gnaw at you. From time to time, you think about your past, from your adolescence to relationships and choices. These things aren’t directly related to your life now so you wonder why they come up at all but you cannot reconcile them. Because you are busy with work, family, and staying connecting, these emotional blips get lost. You don’t make time to reflect and feel. You just keep plugging along … until next time.

In my practice I blend together the art and science of psychotherapy with a strong focus on global change. My intention is to help you thrive. I use a comprehensive approach with a strong mind-body focus and integrate psychoanalysis with neuroscience.This helps to interpret properly and work more efficiently toward transforming maladaptive mechanisms that stifle your life. Often I use Neurofeedback and Biofeedback and work directly and noninvasively with the brain and the nervous system. This helps you self-regulate and embody change quicker, with less distress. In most cases the results are permanent.
