You’ve heard the adage: “Don’t put the cart before the horse.” Yet many individuals in need of psychotherapy seek out therapists who offer easy answers and simple solutions for their woe. But the horse, or willpower, is left in the barn: e.g., it’s common for various problems to be framed cognitively and behavioral strategies and tools used to treat them. But might there not be an unrecognized basic insecurity underlying most people’s issues and recurrence, making negative reactions, powerlessness, cognitive distortions, behavioral avoidance, as well as depression, detachment or fear of rejection likely? Ah, the will-to-live.

At various times in their lives people need help in recognizing what they want and are not getting. In an atmosphere of safety and support, we will look at patterns and beliefs that prevent each person from feeling cohesive and understood. We will also look at patterns that trigger feelings of depression, anger and anxiety, as well as longings that may be shameful and out of awareness. With support and understanding shame can be dealt with and reduced leading to a life that is less isolated and anxiety ridden.

Every couple is different, every couple is complicated, and every couple has trouble talking about one or more key issues. In your first session I will quickly assess what isn't working in your relationship and build a plan to eliminate the problem. I will help facilitate effective communication, make sure the sessions are emotionally safe, and teach practical methods for getting your thoughts and feelings across. My job is not to figure out who is right and who is wrong, my job is to help. ​I tend to work with couples each week for 8-12 weeks.

Life is often challenging and can leave us feeling anxious, depressed, or emotionally overwhelmed. Therapy provides an opportunity to address and work through the difficulties we face so that we can lead a more satisfying and fulfilling life. A vital component of therapy is creating a safe and comfortable environment so that issues can be explored openly and honestly. I provide a collaborative and supportive environment through acceptance, compassion, and genuineness.

Career Counseling, Depression/Anxiety are primary specializations. I believe the client is his/her own best therapist and already possesses the necessary wisdom for healing to begin. I can facilitate this process by providing a safe, non-intrusive, supportive environment. I prefer to acknowledge, build and reinforce the client's strengths rather than focus on old negative beliefs. 25+ years experience.

Do you feel marginalized, dismissed or judged by social norms? Are you a part of a community that outsiders do not understand (vegan, LGBT, veteran)? Perhaps these thoughts are competing with what you truly know about yourself. The anxiety and depression setting in are natural responses, but you deserve to be understood, respected, and believed. Your thoughts are valid. You want to rebuild that self-esteem and find a meaningful community without being marginalized. You are ready to silence the naysayers and fully embrace yourself surrounded by a meaningful community. Do you want to feel understood by someone who really gets it?

Let's go on an exploration that will lead to lasting and tangible positive change. It takes a lot of courage to do this, but it is often in the discomfort that we grow. I encourage you to call me for a free consultation and ask any questions you have about myself or therapy. I will want to know about your goals and what you are hoping for in a therapeutic relationship. I believe in a holistic and non-linear view of life that endorses compassion, curiosity, and also getting out of our comfort zones. Once there is trust between us, I will lovingly push you.
