The most common issues I address include relationship problems, anxiety and depression, stress management, identity and career issues, divorce adjustment, and personal growth.
The best psychotherapy is tailored to the individual, not limited by a single theory or point of view. All the evidence on psychotherapy confirms that the most important contribution to success is the therapeutic relationship. As an experienced practitioner I know this to be true. I practice using approaches that are integrated and tailored for each person and situation. Whatever perspectives are found to be helpful, I consistently attend to providing a relationship that is safe, mutual, nonjudgmental, and non-controlling. It is an accepting relationship built on mutual understanding and evolving trust that helps us all.

As a trained divorce coach I have helped many individuals resolve issues that arise before, during, and after a divorce saving them time, additional stress, and money.
Each individual is unique. Success in therapy depends on a good therapeutic fit between client and therapist. Therapy is a process in which we will work together in a confidential and safe environment to address and resolve what led you to seek professional support. The past can't be changed but one's present, distressing, reactions to memories of those past events can be changed dramatically and I have seen this result repeatedly in my practice. I am beginning to see clients in my office on a part-time basis. Clients must be fully Covid-19 vaccinated for in person sessions.

If you suffer from developmental (trauma from childhood abuse) or acute trauma (for example, rape, assault, divorce, accident), I am trained in several modalities that can help. These include: Neurofeedback, which is exercise for the brain, improves self-regulation and calms the nervous system, building resiliency. EMDR is a process that desensitizes and reprocesses trauma. Somatic Experiencing releases pent up energy in the body that keeps us from completing and letting go of traumatic experiences. I use these methods, along with traditional psychodynamic talk therapy, in a kind and healing environment, to help you recover. .
