During these trying times, emotional, spiritual and psychological health matter. Because each person is unique, there is no set formula for helping someone find solutions and achieve goals. I focus on you and your particular circumstance without judgement in a process which is direct, supportive, and interactive. When choosing a therapist you want to consider experience and a sense that this is someone you can trust. I am a seasoned psychotherapist and have been training practitioners for over two decades. If what you've already tried is not working, I am here to help you explore, identify, and realize alternatives.

I have been privileged to help adults and couples with life transitions and stress-related problems; depression and anxiety; grief and bereavement; traumatic events of childhood and adulthood; sexual identity issues; and other life problems. I work to bring you in close touch with the parts of yourself that you have been avoiding, neglecting or rejecting, in order to develop a different relationship with yourself, a relationship of understanding, kindness and forgiveness. When we are no longer frightened by those parts of ourselves that were unacceptable, we slow down, lose our reactivity, and remain present, even in difficult circumstances.

Do you feel life is restricting you from who you really want to be for yourself, your partner and/or your family? My primary goal in therapy is to help enhance your ability to make choices. I use personalized approaches to help empower your bravery to look inside yourself. The authenticity of these choices will lead to serving you and your relationships in the best ways possible. Assessing our sometimes, self-imposed, "roadblocks" in life can help us build accountability for our choices. This, in turn, allows these choices to become "building blocks" toward lasting joy for each relationship creation of your choice.

Change happens all the time, big and small. Sometimes it's unexpected , and sometimes you make it happen. It can be challenging, exciting, and worth living for; at the same time, it can be scary and upsetting. Losing everyday predictability can lead to uncomfortable feelings. And yet, we're always growing and moving from one set of challenges to another; from child to adult to parent; from family life to an empty nest or being alone; from one job to another, or from active career to retirement; from being single to being committed to another, or from commitment to independence.

It takes a village...Navigating through the transitions and challenges in our lives is meant to be a collaboration with family, friends, elders, wise women and men. However, in the times of instant change and mobility, some may find themselves lost and alone, far from those they confide in and look up to. Sometimes they isolate for fear of vulnerability and the pressure to appear "to have it together". When this self-judgement and drive to be “perfect” eventally takes its toll, one can be left feeling bereft of deep connection to self and others. Finding a therapist you can trust and confide in, can help you find your way.
