Together with my clients, I create a safe and supportive space to explore the issues where they feel stuck and unable to move forward in their lives. From a client-centered approach we uncover core false beliefs, attachment patterns and other difficulties often at the root of suffering, which blocks many from living a life of inner peace and connection to others. I help facilitate the nurturing of internal strengths within the person to cultivate acceptance, healing and growth. My focus is on eating disorders, substance abuse, self-harm and other maladaptive behaviors, including underlining issues of anxiety, depression and trauma.

As a psychologist, I allow the space for individuals to gain insight and growth in their lives that help them reach their goals and aspirations. We all encounter challenges, whether it be someone suffering from anxiety and depression, a family who just found out their child has a medical issue, a child with fears, or a teen who has been bullied. During these unfortunate times what is needed is someone to connect with and help you out of this dark cave of distress. One of my greatest strengths has been the ability to connect with others and reveal the ways through this emotional distress.

Relationships between husbands, wives, lovers, boy/girl friends, children or parents can be tricky. Happy, satisfying and fulfilling relationships require attention, energy, fun, humor, communication, time and investment of yourself. Too often relationships are hampered by misunderstandings, hurtful actions, stress, differences of opinions, unmet needs, and different expectations. Personality changes over time, affairs of the heart, infidelity, unmet sexual intimacy, abuse, cruel words, neglect, self-centeredness, different communication styles, different goals, values and dissimilar interests or fun activities also create unhappiness in relationships.

Are you a child, adolescent or adult having difficulty functioning at work, school, or in relationships? Sometimes a history of trauma, self defeating and limiting belief systems interfere with our ability to love, work and play. I can help when old ways of adapting to stressors no longer work. Change is necessary at the mind, body and spiritual level for adaptation to occur. We will work together through your transformation. You can learn new ways to tolerate what has been overwhelming and you can develop new, healthier coping skills to help you manage what was formerly intolerable about daily living.

Usually we don't seek help unless we feel we are in some kind of crisis. With that in mind, I am sorry you are here... And yet, welcome. Welcome to the opportunity you are facing to make this hard time turn into strength, competence, satisfaction, peace and connection with yourself and others. Ideally, that is what good therapy does. You might not have the hope that can happen just yet, but I do. It is my belief that everything good is worth working toward. As a therapist, I will work with you collaboratively toward the goals you prioritize.

Life as a teen and young adult has changed! Going through the teen years is challenging enough. But today in a 24/7 social media world, it's even more difficult. The top concerns I see with today's teens are: * Teens always had to maintain their image at school. Now they feel under pressure to maintain their social media image too, constantly comparing themselves to the on-line images of others. * Teens are facing depression and anxiety at alarming rates. Their emotions feel too overwhelming to get out from under. * The pressure to perform is at an all time high and many cannot cope with the anxiety.

"I've tried so very long to change, but I just can't do it on my own." These are the words that I hear most often from women and men who have made the difficult but courageous decision to ask for help. Often, asking for help is not possible due to fear of being judged. I usually help individuals learn that they have already judged themselves more critically than anyone else could. No life is free from difficulties and everyone makes mistakes; we learn from our mistakes.
