Beginning therapy can be scary and intimidating, but also hopeful. Discussing your wishes and uncertainties in session can promote clarity and lead to positive changes in thinking and behavior that are necessary to improve circumstances and relationships. Action is required for positive life changes to occur. It isn't always easy figuring out what action to take or what changes to make. Therapy is a safe place to explore these thoughts and feelings. Small shifts can lead to large improvements in mood and relationships. Please reach out with questions or to schedule an initial consultation.

You may be feeling sad, anxious, overwhelmed, or confused. You may be experiencing a difficult life transition or feel that something is missing in your life. It is important to find a therapist with whom you have a good fit, a feeling that your therapist "gets" you in order to develop the trust necessary in a therapeutic relationship. I have over 35 years of experience helping people in a safe, non-judgmental environment. It is through feeling understood that we come to understand ourselves better.

In these times of uncertainty, I am here to help. I have years of experience and am able to work with you virtually. Call me! Listening for what is not said is often as important as what is said. No one therapeutic approach suits every client's need, so I tailor my approach based on what's best for the individual. My success with sober clients and others suffering from addictive disorders comes from my willingness to help them navigate the realities of life. Sometimes psychotherapy alone cannot cure mood disorders, just as drugs for depression and anxiety are less effective without concurrent psychotherapy.

I work primarily with people who have been negatively impacted, often in ways that do not seem significant, or that are not entirely acknowledged by society and culture as important or meaningful. These include early attachment issues, relational dilemmas, and environmental impacts due to over-sensitization. Through having worked across many domains, I have the capacity to help people understand their own internal dynamics much more clearly--in themselves and in their interrelations with others--so that the conscious changes they are wanting to make in their lives have the potential and possibility to actually manifest.

Being assertive seems easy in theory. You tell someone what you're thinking, feeling, or wanting. You express yourself in a clear, firm, and respectful way. You set clear physical and emotional boundaries. Unfortunately, if you've experienced childhood trauma, abuse, neglect, or harsh punishment, being assertive can be really difficult. You may fear upsetting other people. You may fear coming across as 'aggressive.' You may have a hard time expressing your thoughts and feelings.

Starting therapy can be an exciting and daunting process. Working with a therapist allows you to have an unbiased third party listen to your story, validate your emotions and help foster and provide insight and support. Therapy can help you learn new strategies and techniques to help you better tolerate distress and view thoughts, feelings and situations differently. My goal as a therapist is to provide a safe, compassionate, and non-judgmental space where we can work together to identify and process issues you have been facing.
