"The most significant predictor of a successful therapy experience is the quality of the relationship between therapist and client. Building a safe, nurturing relationship is where I excel. My style is warm and highly interactive, best suited for clients who prefer a therapist who feels very human, less like the old "medical model." I assist clients to explore their thought patterns and corresponding emotional reactions, and to identify unconscious assumptions they hold about themselves, which inform their behavioral patterns. I also provide practical tools for regulating anxiety, managing depression, and processing grief & loss."

"If you've always been different or struggle to fit into the mainstream, you might feel very alone. Maybe you have trouble finding ways to fit into a world that isn't always aligned with your strengths, perceptions, and values. You might even feel like something's wrong with you. Being different can make it hard to find a sense of identity and community, so I view it as my job to help you connect with your own strengths and build feelings of community and security, so you can feel more in touch and okay with who you are. And if trauma in your past is a part of the difference, I've been trained to help you gently unpack that too. "

My style is very open, warm, and flexible. I will collaborate with you to meet your individual needs and provide the space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings."

"I'm a "seasoned" psychologist in practice for 40 years. I enjoy working with people from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds and have always preferred having a "general practice" which allows addressing a wide range of personal concerns. While each individual requires a unique approach; the transformative power of therapy is rooted in the trusting relationship that evolves between you & I. It's the alliance between us which helps you become the person you aspire to be. The work is serious but also allows for having a bit of fun while seeking the most gratifying life to foster a sense of fulfilling purpose for yourself. "

"Im a practicing Integrative Wellness Coach. Sort of like an advanced life coach. The clients I work with vary but the system i use is adaptable to almost any client. I work with clients one on one over the phone and/or web. If you're considering therapy, but could use coaching instead this may be the place for you! The main difference between coaching and therapy is that therapy focuses on the past and coaching focuses on the present and future. Coaching is designed to be a forward focused process. Coaching could be a very powerful alternative as there is room to work on pivot points as well as your potential."

"I believe that a good psychotherapy treatment should facilitate a process of self-inquiry, where one discovers, over time, how to become more authentic, both with oneself and with others. I practice deep listening with my patients and hold space while they explore their inner world, thoughts, feelings, fantasies, and visions. I specialize in treating people with mood disorders, distress associated with chronic medical conditions, and substance abuse problems."

Therapy is the process of reconnecting to what is important to us, and finding relief from our suffering. This journey requires opening up and learning about ourselves, which often can only be done with a trusted support person. It takes time to undo old habits, and to recognize and heal old wounds.

"Finding therapy can be frustrating- wading through dozens of profiles, wondering if this person is really going to be who you need. I get it. If you've worked hard to get where you are, but are still fighting to feel at home in your own body or safe in your relationships, you've come to the right place. I like to think of myself as a playful, perceptive, and down-to-earth navigator in the search for clarity and confidence.

Unfortunately, most of us have internalized the notion that refuge is to be found in external phenomena – other people, places and things. While such phenomena can be pleasing, reality dictates that these phenomena are inherently impermanent and unsatisfactory. In addition, most of us have internalized our likes and dislikes in a way that have given rise to a crystallized belief in the existence of one’s self, the defense and protection of which has come to dictate much of our decision-making through adulthood.
