"I do psychotherapy with women. All kinds of women, from all walks of life. Women who bring a wealth of different problems to the table -- eating disorders, depression, anxiety, histories of trauma -- but who share an underlying desire to restore a sense of power and agency in their lives. My therapeutic approach pulls primarily from psychoanalytic techniques but incorporates aspects of mindfulness and Internal Family Systems techniques to help patients stay present in the therapy and in their relationships."

"Therapy can re-establish your direction in life and restore your hope. What is not working for you? Do you feel stuck between thoughts and feelings that contradict one another? I have 30 years in clinical practice supporting people to better understand their life experiences and the feelings holding them back. I make it comfortable to talk about sensitive topics, like sexuality and difficult relationship problems. As we find recurring themes and self-defeating patterns, you will discover ways to overcome sadness, fear and other emotional obstacles. Problems, once confronted, lead to insights and new found strength, self- acceptance and freedom."

""A year from now, you may wish you started today." - K. Lamb. It is normal to view the process of beginning therapy as daunting, however recognizing the need for help is a sign of strength and motivation. There is nothing harder than starting every day with the feeling that nothing is ever going to change and what's the use in trying? Therapy can and will help you address obstacles, create meaningful relationships, and learn ways to develop better insight. Whether you are experiencing depressed feelings, overwhelming anxiety, unbearable life transitions, or struggles in your relationships, it can get better."

"I understand that symptoms and problems have meaning and I help patients to come to understand this meaning. Therapy loosens the forces that bind people to ways of living that have become unsatisfying. I seek to help patients understand themselves in a deep and complex way so that life becomes more free, more enriched, and more meaningful."

"I liken psychotherapy with being a combination of private detective and sanitation engineer. Therapy is the process whereby you seek out truths and understanding, and throw away what isn't working. And then it's important to build something better. I think the goal of therapy is to have self-awareness and understanding that you approach the world in an authentic way. As a benefit, this creates happiness. I don't have all the answers, but I have a good idea what questions to ask. And that guides us to understanding and resolution to the problems you are seeking help for."

"I help teens, college students, and young adults reduce suffering, stop harmful behaviors, increase positive emotions, and build healthy relationships. When you experience emotions intensely, life can feel like one crisis after another, because you're rarely getting relief from painful feelings. Sometimes the emotions are so overwhelming that you may also feel numb or empty. Self-destructive behaviors can emerge as a way to feel better in the short term, but of course they end up making things worse in the long term, causing problems in your relationships and damaging your self-respect and self-esteem.
