I help individuals and couples to feel better about themselves and find relief from challenging times in life. I've seen how much difficulty can exist at certain times in life. However, I've also learned that even the most difficult problems can be overcome, and how this is possible.

Considering entering therapy can be filled with hope for positive changes and concerns about the process. We all have questions: Is change really possible? How difficult will it be, what might I discover, and do I want to know it? Is it even okay to express what I'm really thinking and feeling? If you're up for doing the work, then the answer is yes. The road to bringing your struggles under your control is both challenging and worthwhile.

Most people solve most problems on their own or with help from friends, but that doesn’t always work. Troubles mount up. Upheavals catch you unawares. “Go to” solutions can leave you empty-handed. Even planned changes can be disorienting - job changes, retirement, new relationships, going off to school, children leaving home. Sometimes people just need help coping, changing bad habits, or thinking through options. Other times people feel hemmed in by circumstances, or find they don’t recognize themselves in the life they lead and want to deepen their sense that the life they are living reflects their own values and choices.

I approach therapy with the understanding that our mind and body are not separated but aspects of a unified whole. Our emotions and life history are held and manifest in the body and change begins when we acknowledge and work with our full being. Through a process that goes beyond talk, I help my clients bring attention to how their concerns effect how they breathe, feel, move, think and express themselves, as I support them in gradually exploring the underlying emotional terrain.

Seeking therapy can be a daunting task and often people are ambivalent about entering a therapeutic relationship. Through years of psychotherapy practice with adolescents, adults and couples, I have found that real change is possible when one feels safe, validated and accepted. My work is grounded in the belief that with the right support and practical tools one can gain confidence in tackling obstacles such as anxiety, depression, loss and difficult life events or transitions. My style is integrative, interpersonal and solution focused. I believe it is most important to meet the individual where they are.

Why do people seek help? I think people in great pain have somehow lost their ability to navigate in the world. Depression, anxiety, and fear renders a person helpless and one cannot summon their old ways of being. Recent trauma or unresolved issues can suddenly alienate a person from themselves. Often people are wrestling with unexamined fears or emotions that have long been dissociated. In the safety of the therapeutic space, the client can confront that which is most difficult with the aim of once again feeling whole, thus able to pursue, with energy and pleasure, their work and relationships.

As a licensed creative arts therapist (drama, art, music, movement, play. creative writing) my skills are especially suitable for clients who have been through levels of trauma (domestic violence, divorce, dating abuse, PTSD, grief and loss, depression, self-harm, anxiety. etc.). In addition, I work with high-functioning kids/teens on the autism spectrum. I have found that the visual and physical work of role-playing, scene-work, improvisation, simple drawings, and video work increases their skills to recognize facial cues and feelings. Through play, these clients build self-esteem, social skills, deepen their emotional range and gain empathy.

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).
