I have a lot of experience working with individuals (from young adults to seniors), who are anxious or depressed or who are encountering challenges in their lives that are overwhelming. I work with adults of all ages. My work is trauma informed. I like to help people figure out what they can do to feel better about themselves and about their circumstances.

As eclectic therapists, we like to work collaboratively with clients to support positve change and growth. We draw upon cognitive-behavioral, systemic, strengths-perspective and psychodynamic theories of treatment to meet each client's needs. New coping tools, including rational challenges to negative thinking, are essential elements in the treatment process.

My experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and couples over the past 40 years has demonstrated that no challenge is impossible, no situation hopeless. I see people dealing with issues typical of their phase of life, their relationships, their families, their use of substances, and/or mental illness ranging from the mild to the severe. Because I see people of all ages (16 and up) with all kinds of reasons for coming to see me, I'm best thought of as a general practitioner. I am, however, developing an increasing interest in working with the trans and gender diverse.

Most people come to therapy because they feel overwhelming feelings (like depression, anxiety, or anger), or they find themselves behaving in ways (like damaging relationships, or avoiding things they should be facing) that are hard to change. My approach is primarily cognitive-behavioral (CBT), which means that I try to help people discover patterns of thinking that produce emotions or behaviors that don't work for them, and then learn to think and act differently. It's important for you to feel listened to and understood, but you can also expect my style to be fairly "active," and for our goals to be as clear as possible.

As we age we have many challenges and transitions which affect us - some positive and some negative. What we do with these transitions are the key to finding joy in our life. Most of the time we are completely capable of navigating these stressors with our own personal resources. Sometimes a little extra support is required: whether it is obtaining insight, learning new behaviors or just having a skilled listener. My various skills learned over thirty years can do that. I can provide the support and skills that are needed.

It can be difficult to ask for help, so let me start by congratulating you by taking the first steps in addressing your happiness and mental health. Your emotional health is very important and has an impact on your overall well-being. For far too long, stigma and fear of judgement has prevented people (especially people of color) from engaging in MH therapy.
