I AM CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. Over the past two decades as a therapist, I have witnessed the transformative power of therapy. The key ingredients are often the collaboration and connection in the therapeutic relationship as well as the willingness of clients to consider novel ideas and possibilities for their lives and then try out new behaviors/coping skills. I work well with adults of all ages, older teens, couples and even families, when it is helpful to include a larger system to discuss problems, consider changes or improve communication.

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.

Many challenges in life can feel like they are uniquely yours to bear alone; however, this is rarely the case. People visit me concerned about how they feel and function in key life and professional relationships. I have worked with individuals, couples, and families on a variety of overlapping issues such as anxiety and depression, self-esteem, parenting children with special needs, setting limits with adult children, work/life balance issues, and sexual desire issues in committed relationships. Often these issues can be helped by addressing the common denominator of individual development within a family or relationship system.

Besides the commonplace individual and couples psychotherapy, many clients, especially parents, consult with me about family problems.
In my practice, I work with a diverse clientele: children, adolescents and adults from all backgrounds. My approach is practical and conversational as we explore together the stressors of daily living, relationship concerns, parenting issues, and in some instances, severe psychiatric disorders. Often, clients seek short-term interventions, though for some difficulties therapy continues for an extended period. I allow my clients to set the agenda for our work together and decide what sort of help is needed.

I connect deeply and empathically with my clients, and challenge them towards greater self-awareness that leads to happiness and peace of mind internally and within relationships. Individuals and couples inevitably reach periods of frustration and conflict that signal the need for change. Whether these problems are grounded in past loss or current misfortune, outside intervention can offer immediate relief. I specialize in treating mood disorders, couples in gridlock, and adult children with a legacy of trauma, neglect or codependency.
