I have particular expertise working with families and couples, as well as LGBTQ and older populations.
I enjoy working with people who are motivated to understand and address their issues. Most people come in with relationship, family and/or work and career issues and many express feelings of depression, anxiety or "stuckness" about where they are in their lives. People exist within the context of their families, workplaces and friendships. I help them understand the roles they take up in relationships and how to make adjustments to improve the quality of their interactions and decision making processes. I use EMDR along with talk therapy and homework assignments, as appropriate.

Couples in crisis or with long-term dysfunctional patterns, can change their relationships through intensive couples therapy with me.
Sometimes we need a transformational breakthrough to grow into the person we were meant to be. We know there's a path, but it can be difficult to find on our own. I use a combination of traditional and imaginative methods that help individuals and couples get to the heart of their issues, work through present and past pain, and successfully move forward. I provide a safe, supportive, nurturing environment, as well as insightful, honest feedback. My structured, yet dynamic, interactive approach addresses all levels of malaise; thinking, feeling, behaving, and spiritual.

I have exensive post-graduate training in family and adolescent treatment/ Family and couples treatment may include the issue of chronic illness and its effects on the family and the struggles of the "sandwich generation" where couples are coping with both the needs of their children and their aging parents.
Depression, anxiety, eating disorders,career difficulties, and relationship conflicts can feel overwhelming. An individual may feel stuck in unhealthy coping mechanisms. As a psychodynamic therapist, I know that individuals suffering from these difficutlies may exhibit similar symptoms, yet the underlying causality is unique to each individual. Revealing one's problem to a stranger can be difficult, I work with my clients to develop a safe environment where there is a mutual sense of authenticity, empathy, and trust. In collaboration with the client, we develop a treatment plan based on his/her individual needs and goals.

In couples therapy, I provide an environment where honest communication can be expressed in a non-confrontational way.
I believe that change is possible...and necessary to reach our goals for a happier life. I imagine you are ready for a change, either in your circumstances, your emotional state, or in patterns and behaviors that keep you stuck. Everyone needs help in order to identify blind spots and see things from a different perspective. I love working with anyone who is ready to take on the challenge of exploring their difficulties and overcoming obstacles that get in the way of feeling successful and satisfied.

I often hear - My child/spouse is not acting right! or We just can't get along! By activating complementary therapeutic approaches and techniques, together we unearth behaviors that may prohibit change.
By becoming engaged and working with a solution-focused therapist, you will begin to uncover your child's and/or your family's potential. You will begin to engage in a life that is worth celebrating, not merely tolerating. Throughout the growth cycles of children and adolescents, they often have many behavioral issues. This includes ADHD, unresolved stress, unsupported grief, addiction/recovery issues. Families of all types can have these ongoing struggles. Conflict resolution is paramount between family members. In addition, counseling the parents re: their own depression, anxiety or personality issues is paramount to completing the cycle of ongoing family distress.
