Are you living a life of "quiet desperation"? Get to the bottom of your problems by connecting with yourself. Psychotherapy can help identify and overcome blocks that prevent you from being your real self. Are you repeating patterns from childhood despite your best efforts not to? Those patterns were likely formed early in childhood as a survival mechanism and now that you no longer need those patterns, they feel like a prison. Psychotherapy provides the key that opens the door. If you are afraid that you cannot do this, please do not sell yourself short and give yourself a chance.

I use several psychotherapeutic modalities in order to best help the client, rather than trying to force the client to conform to a certain style of therapy. I personally know how difficult it is to seek help when you feel overwhelmed. I offer an initial free 20-minute phone consultation to determine if we would be a good therapeutic fit.

I believe successful therapy relies on the professional therapist's core knowledge and listening skills. Both are needed to pay depth of attention to your perspective with a caring therapeutic ear. I listen well, draw from theory and practical experience to understand what my client is experiencing. I also consider what social pressures or situations impact your thinking/emotional states and what therapeutic approach might be most helpful. I take into account the client's unique human diversity, level of personal development, consciousness and, if applicable, spirituality. Together, we select the most desired and achievable goals as the therapeutic focus of our time together.
