I work with adults struggling with low motivation and/or grappling with feelings of inadequacy, loneliness, people pleasing, and irritability. Some have suffered through a great deal of disappointments in life and can't find the level of fulfillment that they deeply wish for. I also have a keen interest in working with people with high sensitivity, and those who wish to deepen their understanding of childhood experiences or trauma. Whatever feelings, or symptoms, you are struggling with, they DO serve a purpose. They are unconscious but adaptive methods to communicate something important about your life. Let's discover what it is.

I am an Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapist. The best part of working with ACT principles is that is a science based therapy, which has been proven to be effective for a wide range of psychological disorders and life issues. I aim to help clients to accept what is beyond their control here and now and discover their values to add committed actions to enrich their lives. We aim to provide a framework to build psychological flexibility through theraputic interventions. Thus, there is no ideal client since all clients' problems are approached as workable. I identify with the client the issues, needs and goals.

My clients seek to change what is difficult and what isn’t working in their life. Many struggle with the impacts of trauma interfering with their day to day life. Others may struggle with feeling stuck or emotionally overwhelmed. They may be experiencing a challenging dynamic in their relationships or a lack of connectedness to others. My clients are looking to transform their life, achieve personal growth, and to heal.

Are you easily overwhelmed by emotions? Do you find that you frequently try to snuff out or avoid sadness, anger, shame, or other strong feelings? If your experience is that your mood or emotions are in the drivers' seat on the road of your life (or holding the remote control to your mind) I can help you regain power and develop greater freedom and flexibility within. As your therapist and guide, I can help you learn strategies and tools for managing difficult life problems and the intense emotions they create. I can help you overcome painful circumstances and build the life you want to live.

Sometimes life presents us with difficult, painful, or even seemingly unbearable challenges. Sometimes we, ourselves, can be a source of the pain and challenges. Either way, we must be able to access our resources -- inner and outer -- to cope with the pain, the imbalance, the overwhelm, the stuckness ... and, ultimately, to learn, heal, and grow from our experiences..... My job is to help you best utilize resources you already have and to offer you more tools to help you change undesirable patterns in yourself and your life.

I had the great privilege of training with Virginia Satir, a pioneer in a Systems approach to therapy. This approach examines how early learning in the family-of-origin, affects present day behavior. The many concepts she shared about people, how we can change and grow, have have been influential to me personally and inform my work. My wish is to share with others how to better communicate, improve relationships with self and others and, not only better cope with life challenges, but thrive. I join with clients to create a safe atmosphere where people can risk and grow.

Good therapy experiences are based on an engaged and profoundly honest conversation that is collaborative, imaginative, thoughtful, and touched with a little grace. We open ourselves to the transforming power of our intuition when we feel truly heard, understood, and encouraged to risk being different. I believe this offers us the opportunity to stretch ourselves and live lives which are more free, creative, and emotionally generous.

Do you feel guilty about things you've said and done? Do you lose sleep because of these feelings? Would you like to forgive yourself? What about repairing or rebuilding your relationships? We all think about our relationships during our lives. Yet this "unfinished business" can be an energy drain, robbing us of vitality and preventing us from having the life we truly want. Left unchecked, it can lead to depression and anxiety. One of life's most important processes is the act of forgiveness -- a process which rids us of self-loathing and bitterness so that we won't live in constant anguish.

Be able and confident to use real tools helping to bring ease in your life and get your world on track. There is help for suffering, PTSD, anxiety, etc. that does not always involve having to trench up the past, but rather, can work right now to bring relief. Are you hurting or stuck? Often our past laid down unconscious survival mechanisms that are at work today that are no longer useful. We can work together to discover these and then insert a new and more useful tool that can allow more ease in your world. I help you identify current needs are so that these can be supported.

What type of Saratoga mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Saratoga?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
