By the time people get to me they’ve often tried many things. They’ve read self-help books, perused articles, confided in friends about problems that just don’t seem to go away. Those issues span the gamut, from difficulty with family members to on-the-job problems, to outright trauma, to a nagging sense of dissatisfaction with life. “What can I do about this?” people want to know. My answer is usually something along the lines of “Let’s try to understand more.” Things are often not what they seem at first glance. My office is a place to figure things out, to increase empathy for yourself and others, and to make needed changes.

I view therapy as a process that can facilitate healing and change, as well as understanding and fulfillment. Whether stuck in a conflicted relationship, feeling lost, struggling with depression or anxiety, adjusting to a transition or life change, feeling unable to break unhealthy patterns or resolve past issues and pain, it can be difficult to know where to start. Together, we can explore the issues you face and identify the direction you want your life to take and the steps needed to get you there. Once established, our relationship can provide the foundation and safety for this process.

Typically individuals come to psychotherapy for relief of emotional and psychological pain, which may take the form of depression, anxiety, self-defeating behavior, and/or unfulfilled relationships or goals, to name a few. Many can identify some past trauma, or perhaps some mistreatment that seems somehow connected. For others the reasons are more elusive, like a general feeling of unhappiness, perhaps with oneself or with others.I strive to help you verbalize your thoughts and feelings about what happens between us in our emerging relationship as a way of understanding your relationships in general.

Although by orientation I'm a cognitive-behavioral therapist--that is, I focus on how thoughts and actions affect how we feel and respond to situations--I don't follow a cookbook approach to treatment. Each individual brings a unique set of problems to therapy, and I start with a thorough evaluation to assess your needs and develop a collaborative treatment plan that is personal yet based on current research. This type of therapy is focused more on the present than the past and on developing coping skills to help you deal with the problems that are currently troubling you.

Therapy offers a setting in the service of further knowing and understanding one's feelings, so as to be better able to respectfully care for one's self. Generally, the more choices we have in caring for our feelings, the better we usually feel and function. Learning to talk through feelings lessens the risks of those feelings being acted out in self-destructive ways. Constructive self-management contributes to self-esteem. Self-understanding, in combination with more clearly defined personal boundaries, makes for more satisfying relationships with others.
