¶..You'll tap your strengths and enjoy them. We'll marvel at how the brain creates one adaptive "I" after another (side by side now, taking turns in one healthy person). We'll respect how they once protected you, and relax the outdated ones that tie you up. ¶..We can use the ways you're ready for change, so it feels natural. I see adults & elders delighted by fresh thinking, with new relief from false alarm.

The decision to work on oneself is not something I take lightly. Healing is a sacred path, but not easy. I welcome clients as they are and hope to become while offering a warm and peaceful presence that is active yet non-invasive. My clients are as diverse as the issues and different parts of themselves that emerge. Symptomatic states of being tell a story of a unique legacy of neurobiolgical and attachment wiring. Developing safety, mindful awareness, and self-compassion, I help my clients find meaning, hope, and the freedom to become who they were meant to be.

Every person has many sides to their personality. Often these different sides are in conflict with one another and cause pain, anxiety and/or depression. When we find ourselves caught in repeated conflict in relationships, or we behave in ways that feel uncharacteristic, we often are in conflict with an aspect of ourself that is unknown or unconscious to us.The goal of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy is to help the unconscious self become conscious. When we begin to know ourselves better we can often make better choices and develop better tools to deal with the conflicts and stress that life brings us.

Hi, thank you for taking a moment to view my page. Although I do welcome all clients, my specialty is helping high schoolers and young adults in college/graduate school who are experiencing stress, difficulty functioning, and unhappiness. The clients I see tend to be greatly successful in many areas of their life. They may even be told by the people around them that their life is "perfect." But still they feel a deep sadness or emptiness that never seems to ease no matter what they achieve or succeed at doing. If you feel this sadness, I believe that help and care is here for you today.

With great courage and a sense of curiosity, you’ve already taken the hardest step towards feeling better—reaching out for help. Maybe you’ve been feeling "stuck" or overwhelmed? Perhaps you and your significant other find it difficult to communicate each other's feelings and needs. Or maybe you're trying to make sense of a life experience and don’t know where to start. I would like to reassure you, you don’t have to endure the pain or confusion alone. We, as humans, have all experienced moment(s) in life where we feel disconnected from our true selves and even our loved ones. Sometimes we just need some support along the way.

In our work together we will explore your strengths and root you in them. We will define your values and explore how to live your life in harmony with them. We will also create space for the areas in your life where you want change and navigate the path to get you there.

In our culture there is little space devoted to exploring illness, death and dying, and grief. We often turn away from the impending reality of death because it can be frightening to think about our own mortality. This serves us well until we experience a medical diagnosis or trauma that changes the way we live in the world. My role as a therapist is to join with you on this journey of exploration, facing complicated emotions that arise, like feeling alone, uncertain, angry, or sad.
