I specialize in Christian counseling and strive to help everyone find purpose in their experiences, create a vision for healing and truly embrace their full potential. My approach for clinical work has always been to be present with each person and encourage them to use whatever trials they have experienced to become stronger and enhance their overall story. I genuinely believe none of us have to be defined by what has happened to us in life, but rather can use those experiences, good and bad alike, to become better versions of ourselves.

I am currently offering Teletherapy and limited in-person sessions. I enjoy working with all ages of clients and believe that anyone is capable of positive change. I view my clients as equal collaborators in the therapeutic process and therefore, take cue from their needs, strengths, and stated desired outcome during their time in therapy. Areas of focus include: trauma, PTSD, anxiety, personality disorders, gender and sexual identity, living with an intellectual or physical disability, social skills acquisition (particularly in cases of individuals with autism), addictions, pain management and strengthening family relationships.

Founded on a person-centered approach, I believe that the professional relationship is a large part of the therapeutic work. Although I integrate several evidence-based modalities including cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, somatic, psycho-dynamic, & motivational interviewing interventions, I welcome any presentation for both adults as well as youth.

My ideal client is one who is interested in finding happiness in love, work and community. My joy during my 30 years in practice is to experience, with individuals and couples, their growth towards these goals. Years in private practice and a major medical setting in New York have given me a broad background in helping people cope with the many challenges life hands them and to help them regain their feelings of hope. Additional focus is placed on life transitions including divorce, retirement, and bereavement. Additionally, I offer guidance in helping your children and teens navigate those challenging years.

Talking about personal struggles is never fun; finding the right therapist to support and guide you can make the process successful. I focus on going at the client's pace building the therapeutic relationship that is essential to reducing barriers and accessing the individuals own strengths to heal. My training and experience enable me to support those with significant trauma, anxiety, depression, substance use, chronic pain and other mental health struggles that often feel hopeless. I work to empower my clients with knowledge and skills they feel comfortable with using outside of the office in various settings to reduce disturbance

MY APPROACH TO HELPING: I see life as a journey. Sometimes we get in a rut and have difficulty getting out, or sometimes we think we are on the right road and things turn out differently than expected, leaving us devastated and not knowing how or what to change. At times, we are unaware of our repeated patterns or how early life experiences have affected us. We usually do the best we can with what skills we have at the time. Sometimes, we have to change our skill set and develop strategies and skills that will help us be happier and more functional people. Life is a journey, one step at a time.

Life can sometimes be overwhelming and we just don’t know how to move forward. Therapy provides a safe, supportive place to regroup, experience nonjudgmental support, and take back the control you have been searching for. While talking to someone can be uncomfortable and sometimes daunting, finding the right therapist that can guide and encourage you will help make lasting transformation in your life.

I work with couples and individuals and support issues including, relationship concerns, trauma, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, etc. I have found the most effective growth and change is rooted in a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship. In my holistic approach, I evaluate and challenge the mind, body and emotions. This provides external skills and internal growth that makes for lasting effects in relationship and within self. I truly believe that people are resilient. When someone is motivated to change, given the opportunity to be understood, validated and compassionately challenged, they can meet their therapy goals.

I currently am not taking new clients. We all, at times, can benefit from walking with a special companion on this journey; someone who is not part of our everyday life, who has skills and experience to bring us insight and comfort. Sometimes our families, friends, or coworkers don't feel like a safe place to turn. My desire is to provide a space for understanding, healing, and hope so that you can begin to experience more fully, who you are and the beauty of your story. I see adults that struggle with anxiety, depression and life transitions challenges.

You are doing life--going to work, to school--but it's not easy! And it's exhausting presenting as if all's OK all the time: to put on the smile, to muster the energy. But that little voice still whispers negativity in the back of your head: All. The. Damn. Time. You don't know how to take appreciation, much less see it in yourself. You don't know how to say no. And you just want some peace and the sense that you exist outside the needs of others.

You want to be listened to and not judged. You want to be understood and accepted for who you are. You want to clarify and live by your own values. You want to understand that what happened to you wasn't your fault and doesn't define you. You want to be in healthy relationships. You want to learn to believe in yourself and your ability to live a purposeful and fulfilling life. You want to learn to be self-compassionate and recognize that you are good enough as you are. You want to grow deeper into your own goodness. And you don't want to wait for these things until you are no longer grieving or feeling depressed or anxious.

I prefer email & text over voice call. I hope to provide a sense of safety, trust, and acceptance. I tend to work with clients who were once like myself, unsure why they never really "fit" into different settings throughout childhood and now adulthood. It can come as feeling a tiny bit different than those around you. Maybe you did well in school and had a couple close friends, but you don't understand why you feel overwhelmed by certain large environments, sounds, or even foods. You may know the word autism, but only think of it as Sheldon Cooper or Rain Man. It could be that you identify as queer and feel there is something else.

I believe that everyone has the capacity for strong, healthy relationships, and though we sometimes stumble and fall or simply "get stuck" in our personal journey or in relationship with our partners, we can pick ourselves up, brush off the dust, and continue on with love and joy. My work with couples is focused on helping them find their way through the rough patches-helping them ease their loneliness by finding strength in each other...together.

ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS (Telehealth - available) Discussing personal challenges can often be difficult. The fact is that "life can be difficult", and there are times we all requre help "aligning our compass". Finding a therapist can be an important step in one's search for a "life worth living". For 10 years I have worked to develop compassion and empathy in assisting individuals and the families that have solicited my support in meeting the challenges and stressful situations that seems to be an unavoidable part of life.

I enjoy working with clients who actively participate in their therapy. It is important to be ready to enter into therapy. The focus of therapy is on you not the others in your life - for after all you cannot change other people but rather the only person you can change is yourself. I can help you make the changes you want to make. Want to survive a trauma, stay sober, lose weight, interact better with others, recover from a loss, examine a troubled intimacy? This is what I do.

Hope offers light despite the darkness. Deciding to participate in counseling is an important decision and it takes a lot of courage. I commend you for taking the first step. Throughout life, I have learned lessons about the gifts we receive when we take the chance to talk honestly with trusted individuals. It takes a ton of bravery to be vulnerable (at our own pace), but that is how we achieve the safety we are looking for to thrive, and where we build the compassion and sense of belonging we want in relationships. I’ve been a counselor since 1986 and love my job! It’s such an honor to walk with people as they grow and heal.
