I bring to the practice over ten years of working with adults, adolescents, and their families in outpatient, residential, and inpatient settings. For a period, I served as clinical director of a child and adolescent psychiatric unit. As a result, I frequently takes on adolescents with more significant emotional and behavioral disorders and families in crisis in which hospitalization may be required. Outside of working with adolescents, one of my particular interests is doing marital therapy. Additionally, my specialties with adults are anger management, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorders, borderline personality disorder, pain management, and men's issues.

Our emotions are essential for survival. They can help to keep us safe, motivate us, assist us in making decisions and help us to connect with others. For some, emotions can be hard to identify or express. For others, emotions can be overwhelming and can cause complications in relationships. Sometimes, we may behave in ways we normally wouldn't, which can create distance between us and others. Are you looking to develop strategies to identify, express, or manage your emotions more effectively? Do you want to feel more connected in your relationships? Call today!

What can you do when you no longer feel at home in yourself, in your daily living, in your relationships, in your life? You might feel anxious, sad, or angry too much of the time. It can be tempting to think that you should be able to handle things on your own and to want to hide what you are going through. Life shouldn’t be this difficult. Sometimes it’s the big things that throw us off balance – past and present hurts, losses, family conflict, major changes. Other times it is the accumulation of little things and we might not even know why we are overwhelmed or struggling.

Emotional and psychological well being rests on numerous factors. These factors are both historical and concurrent. Additionally, each person carries various coping skills and resources that need to be utilized, enhanced and incorporated to establish an effective protocal when contending with life's innate struggles and challenges. Healthy relationships, personal and professional, are the antidote to many of life's difficulties. Removing barriers that limit our relationships is key to establishing a balanced and enjoyable lifestyle.

Let's face it—life and relationships can be tough. Between work or school, family and friends, we all engage with the world—and each other—differently. For some, building connections seems to come easily. You know who I'm talking about. The enthusiastic coworker with (a little too much) energy to spare; the class clown who never fails to get a laugh; the relative who jumps at the chance to host the next family gathering. For others, connecting is a challenge that sparks anxiety; this anxiety can cause us to fall back on unhealthy coping patterns that thwart our relationship goals and create conditions for personal suffering.

People most complain about what someone else is doing, has done, or might do. They plead, "I wish he'd just change" or "I don't know why she won't stop;" YOU are the only part of every relationship in your life over which you have any real control. The intensity of your desire to make or help someone else change is equal to the intensity of effort you need to apply toward changing yourself.
