Are you uncomfortable in social situations, or experiencing conflict in important relationships? Do you struggle with unwanted habits? My practice is dedicated to assisting you to resolve emotional and behavioral issues that interfere with optimal functioning. By acquiring tools to help manage your moods and feelings, you can loosen compulsive patterns and achieve greater self-acceptance. I work collaboratively with my clients and strive to develop a partnership that begins with listening.
Primarily, I provide in-depth psychotherapy for individuals. I also offer marital counseling and couples therapy to defuse conflicts and to reinvigorate relationships; addiction treatment and addiction recovery (12-Step compatible); social anxiety treatment to normalize shyness, introversion and high sensitivity, and self-care strategies for navigating relationships.
I wrote my doctoral dissertation, "Standing With Shyness," to depathologize shyness and to deeply respect the natural temperament of each individual. I have taught graduate level "Substance Abuse Diagnosis and Treatment" and am trained in hypnotherapy and gestalt therapy which I find particularly helpful in working with clients.
