When you believe you "cannot get there from here," I believe you usually can. Sometimes the stress of life situations blocks your own native creativity and problem solving abilities. Let me assist you to brainstorm and come up with workable solutions to the situation which has caused you to seek therapy.

I support individuals, couples, and families who feel lost and alone, helping them find peace, connection, and joy in life. Together, we'll uncover and address the old messages and beliefs holding you back, so you can understand yourself and others better. I respect and embrace the intersectional cultures each person brings to therapy and the impact this has on their life. If relationships are tough, if you've experienced trauma, if you've been harmed by religion, or if you're grappling with difficult beliefs and behaviors, I'm here to help.

I am known for working well with individuals who are shy and who may be fearful of entering therapy. I have a specialization in the diagnosis/assessment and treatment of AD/HD and learning disorders such as dyslexia. My therapeutic approach is primarily cognitive behavioral. Pragmatism describes my approach to treatment. Management of chronic mental illness, and adjustment issues relating to ethnic/cultural/generational and religious issues are also areas which I specialize in. I believe that at times addressing questions pertaining to meaning in life can be as important as changing behavioral patterns and emotions.

Therapy is a delicate art and a science. Finding the right therapist is important. The connection by an understanding, intuitive professional, someone with wisdom and effectiveness, who also respects the time and the cost of your investment is valuable. I use an attachment-focused orientation, and tools from EMDR, Ego State Theory, CBT, 12-step recovery model, and other modalities. I have enjoyed a rich 25-year career as a trauma informed specialist. I have supervised and directed programs in public and non-profit sectors. Adoption is my specialty, as well as work with teens, young adults and families.

We have all felt it at one time or another. Lost. Alone. Uncertain and hesitant. Less than. The life that we want is just out of reach. In the modern world greater connectedness often rings hollow and false. We want to be connected. To be seen. To be known, deeply, authentically, for who we are in our core. We weren't born to feel the way we do, but for something more. Something better. Something we can achieve together.

I help women get unstuck! Many women promise themselves they’ll do things differently from now on - but find themselves stuck in the same spot six months later. You don’t have to stay stuck or keep relying on unhealthy coping mechanisms to help you get through. Life’s too short to let your past keep disrupting your future. Choose yourself again. Stop feeling stuck. Live with confidence. In working with me you will become less reactive and triggered in your daily life; and feel more empowered and confident. Through our time together I will help you find happiness and peace, gain clarity, and get back on the right path for YOU.

Traumatic events overwhelm our capacity to cope and lead to profound changes in the brain and body. Trauma can lead to feelings of self blame, shame, and isolation. Due to a fear that the world is no longer safe, people develop ways of protecting themselves. These defenses, while once helpful, often negatively impact the way one functions in their job, school, and relationships. Thankfully, we all have within us a fundamental need to flourish and thrive.

I like helping people find contentment and happiness in their lives. I believe it is important to understand one's self and one's personal values and to make choices that are positive and life-affirming. I have had extensive experience working with people having experienced trauma and loss, relationship problems, and who have substance abuse problems. Creative people are also one of my specializations. My training is primarily psycho-dynamic along with cognitive-behavioral orientation. I believe mindfulness, spirituality and forgiveness are ways of helping alter patterns of behavior that can keep us stuck in our lives.

Are you feeling overwhelmed? Do daily activities or social situations sometimes feel like they are just too much? Are you tired of the same old patterns you find yourself in your relationships - having the same argument over and over? When we are in distress we might start to tell ourselves that we are unlovable, unworthy, inadequate, alone, powerless, etc. When we believe these messages we get caught up in destructive cycles that hurt others and ourselves. My hope is to help you break down these messages; to break out of these cycles of anxiety and distress by reframing the narrative that you tell yourself and others.

I believe the relationship between therapist and client is essential in understanding the underlying issues affecting one's obstacles to personal growth and happiness. It is my goal to provide a calm space and safe relationship towards that end. Working with adults, young adults and families for more than 20 years has given me a breadth of experience that I bring to the therapeutic relationship. I have particular experience with early trauma and PTSD; depression/anxiety; life transitions; addiction related symptoms; and, relationship issues.

You are reaching out because things don't feel right and you don't feel good. Do you struggle with irritability or sadness? Maybe you have a trauma history that could be impacting your relationships, health or parenting? I can assist you in making connections between past experiences and current behaviors. I believe in the healing power of relationship and connection. So often we struggle because of barriers that inhibit successful relationships with our children, parents, partner or peers. I can help you to see where the barriers and unsuccessful behaviors come from to be able to make lasting and positive change.

Does this describe you: "I'm running on empty and living a frazzled life. I feel like I'm in survival mode." The process of exploring your inner life (the unresolved traumas, as well as the resiliency that has helped you survive) creates opportunities for you to heal. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). As Viktor Frankl wrote, "When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves." We can rewire our brains and reprocess our past traumas using EMDR. I am currently providing EMDR via Zoom. Yes, this is possible, and it works.

There can be moments in our life where we are overwhelmed with the struggles we are experiencing. We can feel lost, confused, hopeless, stressed, depressed, stuck, worthless, embarrassed, ashamed, angry, the list goes on. Perhaps, you think that you can’t move on, things will never change, nobody cares, you're all alone… If you can relate, I understand why you’d want these unpleasant experiences to disappear. It can be dreadful and exhausting living with this weight on your shoulders.

Whether it is time for you to mend an emotional wound, get relief from anxiety and depression, seek the right relationship, repair the current one, or to create a larger purpose for your life, including a therapist during your journey can help you discover what is possible for you. In addition to his main therapy approaches, Rudy believes that psychotherapy can be vastly improved by integrating deeper exploration into your EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE (EQ): Self-awareness, Self-regulation, Motivation, Empathy, and Social skills. Optimizing these primary components of EQ with your therapist can be a game-changer during your work together.

Do you feel stuck or overwhelmed? Uncertain how to move forward? Coping with a chronic illness? Struggling with a loss in your life? Do you feel disconnected from your partner? Humaning is hard, therapy should not be. When we begin to understand ourselves better, life becomes much easier to journey through. We start to choose how we want to live instead of reacting to what life brings us. I am passionate about helping my clients find a solid sense of self, while staying emotionally connected with others. I strive to create a safe, genuine, supportive, and compassionate environment in which a lasting positive change can be made.
