My approach is collaborative, thus giving you the space to reflect carefully. I work with you to develop better coping skills and help you to understand & manage complex feelings of anxiety or sadness.

My therapy work is focused on emotional health and wellbeing. I work individually with clients and tailor treatment to best fit each person's concerns, character and goals. I do this by integrating insight-oriented treatment and establishing new ways of being in the present. This combines the exploration of long-standing maladaptive patterns and a focus on present-day functioning. I help also people examine and improve relationship dynamics.

"The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled... it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of ruts and start searching for different ways and truer answers" (M. Scott Peck). Life sometimes leaves us feeling uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. When you struggle with knowing how to change, therapy can provide a safe environment where you recognize your strengths and learn skills to make the changes you desire

Do you have a "body-mind" issue? IBS, eating disorders, insomnia, anxiety, auto-immune conditions, trauma reactions, depression and even relationship problems can be tied in to the way that your body is functioning! When you are flooded with stress hormones, you become impatient with yourself and others. When you are not properly nourished or rested, you aren't able to be present and connected.

Unexpected challenges, loss, or the simple momentum of life can sometimes make it hard to feel solid or know how to respond. Inner distress or outward behaviors can make it difficult to feel good about oneself or get along with others. At these times, one can benefit greatly from the support of a trained therapist to explore experiences, feelings, and concerns. I create a confidential supportive space where clients have the opportunity to draw upon their inner strengths and capacity to grow, discover new perspectives, tools, and options for behavior, and develop as individuals to improve their quality of life.

I create an environment that helps clients explore both the internal and external barriers to their healing and growth. As a psychologist I pull from working with diverse groups of people and assist on issues of trauma, grief, loss, relationship difficulties, wellness and health. To me, therapy is best when it's a mix of approaches that are used strategically to create a nonjudgmental and empathic atmosphere. My style is both warm and thought-provoking, and I actively collaborate with and support those with whom I work.

As you search for the right therapist, I recommend looking for certain essential qualities: Close and empathic listening - do you feel heard? Seasoned knowledge and technique - do you feel understood and responded to helpfully? A good "fit" - do you feel comfortable with this person? It is impossible to discern these qualities from a profile alone. You may need to allow yourself a couple of sessions with more than one therapist before deciding. It takes time to know, but there's a lot at stake and much to gain.

Choosing to enter therapy can be a difficult decision, but finding and connecting with the right therapist will play a significant role in the healing process. I believe this healing is achieved through an authentic and collaborative therapist-client relationship and by providing a supportive and nonjudgmental environment in which clients feel safe to explore difficult issues. There are myriad reasons people enter therapy: for problems that have a direct correlation to a cause or for problems that are imprecise, but impact their quality of life.
