"Life hits all of us with the unexpected – sometimes delightful, sometimes the polar opposite. Depression, anxiety, relationship problems, grief and loss are all part of being human. I'm fortunate to have excellent training and experience supporting people through change, crisis and opportunity. Some of my clients have suffered tsunami size losses - a cancer diagnosis, the loss of a loved one through death, betrayal, a divorce/breakup, a big move or just “life.” A desired gain, like a new baby, means the loss of a childfree lifestyle. Change and uncertainty are givens, but we can change how we interpret and relate to what is."

"(Evening Hours Available) --- Worry, frustration, guilt, and sadness: our past taught us how to respond to those feelings. Problems start when how we respond no longer works to get us what we want. In therapy, my goal is to be curious about why you feel and act the way you do. Awareness doesn’t bring change, it brings choice. I ask questions to help us be aware of the patterns that no longer work for you and help us move toward choices that honor your values. I often focus on emotions because they communicate something we can’t yet speak. Listening to those emotions gives us the power to help them. https://youtu.be/6bbFWsebAMA"

"Are you struggling to get your creative vision off the ground? The creative process is a deeply personal process, you are challenged to open up, be vulnerable, and share your inner self with the world. But we sometimes get held back by our past -- we want to express ourselves, but old stories about not being good enough rattle around in our heads. Psychotherapy can help you to become free of these limiting beliefs and self-critical thoughts and really shine as an artist. Doing your inner work will enhance your creative work."

It's hard to remember the last time you felt relaxed. You want to just stop and take a breath in, but as soon as you do, you feel this pang of guilt, like you’re being selfish and destructive.

You want to enjoy close relationships without worrying about work, and set boundaries so you can actually enjoy time off. "

"C.G. Jung famously said, "I would rather be whole than good." Wholeness, knowledge and acceptance of oneself, and living life fully is what depth psychotherapy is all about. Each person or couple begins the process of psychotherapy for different reasons. For some, there may be an immediate crisis or trauma to be worked through. Others may be experiencing extended symptoms of depression, hopelessness, anxiety, addiction, anger, confusion, procrastination, loneliness, sexual and relationship problems, or grief. Many seek to explore important questions of meaning, identity, spirituality, philosophy, gender issues, psychology, politics and power. All are suitable reasons for depth psychotherapy."

'Developmental disorder' is the collective term used to describe the disorders, first diagnosed in a child's infancy or early childhood, which then become more apparent as the kids develop during their childhood and into their teens and adolescence.
