I am committed to helping individuals and couples gain insight and make behavioral changes to enhance their lives. My focus is on relationships with friends, family, romantic partners and/or the workplace as I believe engagement in these areas is an important aspect of living a satisfying and purposeful life. I also work with those struggling with addictions, compulsions, self-destructive behavior (especially eating disorders), and balancing the competing demands of life. My professional strengths are reflected in a nonjudgmental stance and an ability to help people examine themselves and make the changes necessary to live in a more fulfilling life.

As we maneuver through life towards our best selves, experiencing challenges, pain, & negative emotions are inevitable. I believe that we should not allow obstacles and feelings to stop our growth & hinder our journeys. Are you currently going through transition in your life & having difficulty adjusting? Are you struggling to get through your day because you are sad, doubtful, & overwhelmed? Are you confused, frustrated, & tired of trying to figure out relationships & your place in the world? I understand the complexities of life can be difficult to manage, but you do not have to manage them alone.

I enjoy working with children (9+), teens and adults. I see couples and families helping them live happier, more relaxed, and fulfilling lives. I am respectful of my client's time. I frequently check in to make sure that the sessions are helpful, and that we are focusing on what the client wishes to. If one approach is not working, we try another! When people are feeling anxious, depressed, or angry, often the problem is their stress level and lack of a support system.

I specialize in working with individuals who have been touched by adoption. Every adopted person has his/her own unique feelings about being adopted. For some, these may be "back burner" yet for others they may be more complex. I counsel adoptees - at various life stages - as they explore how adoption may affect their identity, feelings surrounding grief and loss, intimacy issues and relationships with family and friends. I have also worked with many adoptees (and birth parents) as they navigate the complexities of the search and reunion process and reconnection.

Couples work is challenging and emotionally provocative. Feelings of frustration, pain, anger and discouragement alternating with relief, hopefulness, and excitement are common among couples who are trying to resolve their marital discord. Although each couple is unique the following principles hold true in treatment of the majority of partners. 1) A good marriage requires both spouses to psychologically separate from their family of origin and shift their primary love, loyalty to each other. An individual cannot fully participate in an interdepended relationship without being first an independent and autonomous person.

Looking back on 30 years in practice, I see a composite client losing inhibitions and conflicts interfering with having a satisfying work and personal life. Central issues are often connected to wanting to feel more whole and happy and to separate from while staying connected to family. Finding, keeping, or leaving a relationship or job are usually part of the work. Together, we explore and unravel emotional knots. New behaviors and skills are developed and used and by providing a warm, safe environment, the client changes, grows and thrives. Note: I am not taking new appointments for ongoing therapy. Consults are available for stepmothers/stepcouples.

Coping Skills Therapists
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, therapists in 20814 can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.

If you're looking for help with coping skills in 20814 or for a 20814 coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include 20814 coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 20814 are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 20814

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 20814 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 20814 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 20814 or family therapy in 20814.
