I am a solution-focused psychologist who uses cognitive behavioral strategies and psychodynamic approaches. I work with adults, children and adolescents, couples, and families who present with depression, anxiety, marital/infidelity/divorce and parenting issues, educational and vocational issues, and adjustment disorders, and those who are at any stage of the divorce process. In the confidential therapeutic environment people can safely explore their issues and achieve understanding and improved personal/interpersonal functioning. I provide executive coaching with foci on developing insight into the self, anger and anxiety management, and interpersonal relationships both in the work place and at home.

I believe that therapy can be an enjoyable, comforting, challenging, and moving process. I recognize how difficult it can be for clients to show up consistently for themselves and put in the work. It’s a privilege to be able to guide my clients through this process and I do my best to support them in whatever ways needed. I strive to create a safe and judgement-free space where clients can be vulnerable.

Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results. Many of our pitfalls, our "relapses" in behavior, are related to maladaptive patterns with family or intimate partners. Our work in therapy is to understand these patterns and learn how to change them. If depression is dwelling in the past, and anxiety is living in the future, our therapeutic goal is to live in the present, towards a more authentic and mindful reality.

Are you feeling anxious? Hopeless? Lonely? Do you desire more positive connections with family, friends, coworkers, your significant other or yourself? Are you struggling with a transition, self esteem, or motivation? Has there been a major change in your life? For almost 20 years, my clients have learned how to manage difficult emotions, to take back their personal power, to feel more in control and less "driven" by emotions. I believe that each person possesses the strengths that they need, not only to survive, but to thrive. I hope to help you find it, within yourself.

My approach to therapy is a collaborative one. We all have an inherent longing and need for wholeness and balance; however, we sometimes encounter stressful or traumatic events that can interrupt this balance. When we’re imbalanced we can develop psychological and physical symptoms, and we begin to use ineffective coping mechanisms. Together, we can discover how to understand, adapt, and integrate through life’s transitions and stressors.

Life can be challenging, those who reach out for support are allowing themselves to grow and evolve. My approach/philosophy is holistic, meaning my focus is on the whole person, and is grounded in psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral therapies. I often incorporate other modalities, depending on the needs of the person sitting across from me.  I believe passionately in working collaboratively, understanding how I practice and the methodologies I use is critical in the process.

Happy relationships are a refuge from other life stressors, while unhappy ones permeate every aspect of our lives. The focus of my work is on helping clients to create and sustain them. I teach clients how to become more intimate emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually with both themselves and their partners. Some of my clients are dealing with the aftermath of an affair; some are unclear about what they want; some wonder why they repeatedly push others away; and some are trying to understand themselves (a prerequisite for being in a relationship.)

Choosing a therapist is a very important decision. It is difficult to know where to start, what to look for or what questions to ask during an interview. To make this easier for you, I say- let's get to know each other. In an atmosphere of compassion and acceptance, we will talk about you and what brings you joy. Providing a safe and accepting environment where you can feel comfortable to speak freely and openly is of the utmost importance to me.
