Sometimes we don't even consider asking for help when we're feeling stuck, so I'm glad you've begun that process. I have experience helping people through relationship struggles, mood instability, substance abuse, patterns of procrastination and compulsive behaviors - essentially the things we do to manage this sometimes painful human existence. I believe that our pain often originates from our relationships, and so relationships become an important part of change. I like to be curious, to teach you to be curious, to learn how the past impacts the present, and to once again introduce choice rather than our default behaviors.

My practice is founded on the principle that therapy is not about fixing something that is broken. You are not broken. People do not need to be fixed.

Our capacity to connect, both with ourselves (i.e. our passions, feelings, and body) and with others, is crucial to our feelings of well-being. When we connect, we generally feel a sense of aliveness in ourselves and the world. When we can't connect, we feel anxious, isolated, empty, or depressed. I feel my job is to help clients to more fully connect to the range of their experiences. I help adults, adolescents, and couples explore why they lose connection. I help them identify, understand, and overcome the deep root of their disconnection. I help them find well-being, which gives me great joy.

I am always curious about what brings clients into psychotherapy at a particular juncture of their lives and what they are hoping to be different as a result of conversations with someone like me. Once the responses to this curiosity are articulated and there is a clear purpose and direction for therapy, I listen for what a client already knows and what the client strengths and personal resources currently are and what they have been in the past. This becomes the context for conversations which have the possibility of leading toward preferred changes in the client's life and in its direction.

Life is too complicated not to need some help and support from time to time. I believe it takes a certain amount of bravery to recognize when we need help, and even more to seek it out. In order to provide the best possible support specific to you and your situation, I am most interested in getting to know you, your goals, and your expectations for therapy. I have a relaxed approach and have created a warm environment in which you can feel comfortable right away.

I believe that we all face friction in our relationships and day-to-day living. Consistently encountering the same types of issues, however, can be the result of blind spots that blur our view of reality. Psychotherapy exists, in part, to help identify these areas of hazy perception and to resolve them over time. And with improved clarity come choices that are more plentiful, more attainable, and more likely to result in an improved appreciation of everything around us -including ourselves. This process can only happen in a safe, non-threatening environment.

If you are considering starting therapy you are likely feeling stuck: either in feelings of depression or anxiety; in repetitive behaviors; in unsatisfying personal relationships; or in career frustrations. You are often making decisions and acting in ways that are counterproductive to what you want. Our work together will make you recognize how your past experiences intrude on the present, preventing personal growth. Once your are aware of how your disruptive behaviors, actions and/or beliefs interfere with your goals you can make new choices that are more fulfilling.

What do you want? Do you know? If you know, are you able to attain it? Do you struggle with relationships or the ability to make your life as way you want it? Successful living means functioning well in love and work. Irritability, rigidity, anxiety, addiction, lethargy, depression, self-doubt, self-attack: these are all symptoms that sap us of our right to act with the freedom we wish and the ability to engage emotionally with others, our work and ourselves.

I believe that change can happen when you least expect it, and therapy is a wonderful way to look at what is holding you back and understand yourself. I bring an empathic, caring persona to the therapeutic process and believe that the relationship developed in therapy is a powerful tool for insight and growth. I have worked with many patients to develop an increased capacity for self-reflection and to apply skills learned in therapy to creating a more fulfilled life. I see children, teens and adults in my practice.

I strive to be a therapist who is empathic and non-judgmental while utilizing insight to help patients to increase self-awareness. I have witnessed clients become more empathic towards themselves as well seeing their suffering decrease. Therapy can markedly improve the quality of clients' relationships, work, and play. An important aspect of therapy is looking at your feelings in the present moment or "here and now" with me. The therapeutic relationship itself helps heal and we will analyze it at times. I aim to create an environment where the client feels safe and free to express themselves to increase self awareness.

You’re smart and successful but you can’t figure this one out. Things look okay on the outside, but on the inside, you feel anxious and confused. You’re already fighting with yourself and the repetitive arguments with your partner or others just add fuel to the fire. The demands of work keep you busy, but you’re unsatisfied and aren’t getting much of what you want. The critical voice in your head telling you that you're not good enough is always present. You’ve tried to change without much success. You’re stuck and don’t know where to start.

I'm deeply empathetic with an ability to be with clients through their most difficult emotions. I believe processing feelings can facilitate rapid growth. However, my approach is eclectic because change can be initiated in different ways. For example, emotional processing can shift feelings as well as thoughts and behaviors. Alternatively, reevaluating dysfunctional thoughts can improve our outlook and actions. Exploring different behaviors can permanently change one's attitude or release repressed feelings. So, I'm a client centered, empathetic therapist, comfortable working on deep feelings as well as assisting clients in finding concrete solutions and effective new behaviors.

I believe that at times we all get sad, down, bummed-out, etc… but nobody needs to be depressed; I believe that therapy need not be: - intimidating; uncomfortable; awkward; unsafe; labeling/diagnostic, OR indoors; I believe that life can be really challenging, especially for those who try to get through it alone; I believe that nobody should even attempt to get through it alone; I believe that "craziness" is in the eye of the beholder & each of us is crazy in our own uniquely beautiful ways..
