Painful feeling such as anxiety, the aftermath of having experienced a traumatic event, and disconnect from loved ones can feel overwhelming. It is difficult to find joy in life when we are struggling with one of these challenges. Therapy can be a place to consider new ways to work towards your goals, to find new sources of joy, and to reduce the experience of pain.

When client and therapist form a connection, a healing process begins. Within the context of a safe, supportive therapeutic relationship, new growth, development, and joy can emerge for children, teens, adults, and couples. Pain and stuckness can be shared, understood, and integrated, freeing the spirit to live more fully and creatively. I enjoy working with individuals and couples to improve self-esteem, communication and intimacy. I've specialized with adolescents and families for thirty years. I also provide clinical supervision for psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and MFT's, both licensed and pre-licensed. I also love working with artists and writers to enhance their creativity.

I love serving couples. Everyone in relationship gets stuck at times. For some of us, that stuck place seems impossible, hurtful, or even hopeless. We all need relationships. Close, intimate relationships, solid relationships of security and safety, relationships that give us purpose and meaning. They don't always come from one place. I love to help people find relationships, restore relationships, and find vitality and health in their best selves through relationships.

You may be feeling hopeless or lost, struggling with a problem that feels insurmountable. You keep playing the same lines over and over in your head but are not sure where to begin. It can be hard to find the way back to how things “used to be,” whether it is a friendship, intimate partners, or family members. Many clients come in to see me asking: Why am I stuck? What will make this pain go away? How can I fix this issue that keeps coming up for me and in my relationships? Why aren’t the relationships in my life turning out how I want them to be?
