You’ve been thinking about therapy for a while now. You feel overwhelmed by the daily grind. Unable to balance the demands of work and family. Doing nothing is no longer an option. Maybe you’re feeling stuck in a negative headspace. Over-thinking things. Distracted at work. Feeling less present at home. Headed down the old path towards self-destructive behaviors. You're not alone. You aren’t damaged, weak, or “broken.” You’re none of those things. You’re simply human.  And, these days, being human can be incredibly hard.

Stress is a normal part of the human condition and it comes in many forms: difficult childhoods, trauma, interpersonal challenges, school-related problems, work troubles, grief/loss, parenting struggles—just to name a few. The reality is that life places obstacles in our way, but how we manage and cope with them affects their impact on our mental and physical health. Sometimes, the scale between struggling and coping tips towards struggling and we need support. Whether you or your child is struggling with something specific (e.g., anxiety or depression), or you just want to make a simple behavioral change, I am here to help!

Understanding ourselves allows us to make choices that otherwise might be out of our reach. Acknowledging how we feel opens the way to understanding. When we repress our feelings we can shut down not only how we experience ourselves but how we connect to others. Ignoring our feelings often leads to depression and anxiety and interferes with our ability to know ourselves and trust ourselves. We may feel at times that others are in control and that we are helpless. We are the ones responsible for the choices we make and recognizing this is empowering and builds self-esteem.

Perhaps you're going through a transition or quarter life crisis and trying to cope with hard things that have happened in your life. You have tried everything you can think of to try to feel better and it is just not working. Are you overwhelmed and feeling stuck? Does your mind race? Are anxiety and sadness causing you to lose sleep and feel unmotivated? You may be saying to yourself "something has to change" but feel unsure of what to do. Some days you find it hard to function. Your relationships may suffer. And you long for healthier ways to cope with life.

A good connection is the most important part of therapeutic work but it can be hard to find a therapist whom your child or teen enjoys meeting with. Throughout the years, I have consistently heard from parents and other professionals that kids really like coming to see me and seem to get a lot out of the relationship we establish as well as the work we do together. Using the creative arts therapies in addition to a variety of other therapeutic approaches, I work individually with children, teens, and young adults to overcome the obstacles that are getting in the way of their success in relationships, work, and school.

As a psychologist in private practice, I have the opportunity to work with people in order to optimize their emotional well-being. I work collaboratively with individuals to assist their identifying factors which have caused distress. Together we work to discover the obstacles to feeling better. We consider patterns that have developed over time to understand their adaptive benefits and maladaptive consequences. This approach provides opportunities to evaluate and to chart better ways to respond to life's challenges. I utilize a psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral approach with an emphasis on increasing awareness of one's reactions and experiences.

Let's face it. To seek personal mental help presents to be very challenging. It takes a lot of courage to address deep rooted issues and complex life situations. The reality is that many don't know where to begin. Is that you? Some enter therapy to address major life changes, losses, difficult relationships, even substance abuse. Others may seek therapy to help manage mental health conditions. Some may have personally identified life goals that they want to achieve but need a guide on their road map to success.

Sex was great once but now there is so much tension and anxiety around it that you can't enjoy it anymore. It seems like work. You catch yourself wondering if the grass is greener on the other side or if your partner is cheating. You wish you could turn back time and feel what you felt for each other when you first got together. You want to feel wanted and desired again and that you matter. You want to lay in bed and not wonder who the person next to you is and how you got to this point.

Feeling emotions is one of the greatest, yet challenging abilities we as humans have. Trying to master them when the chaos of life seems more chaotic can be overwhelming. This can be especially true when you are caring for an ailing loved one and are struggling to attend to your own needs. You may feel that you are unable to turn your thoughts off which can cause you to feel that your sensations are heightened. Maybe you feel empty or numb. You may wonder why you are feeling this way and may continuously over analyze this body-mind process. You're probably feeling stuck with where you are in life, and the path ahead looks fuzzy.
