It's time to start feeling better. You've tried distraction, talking to friends. But like a ball pushed underwater, your feelings of anxiety, unhappiness, grief or sadness keep surfacing. Distress disturbs your life, relationships and sleep. Worst of all, these bad feelings, like a shameful secret, isolate you. It doesn't have to be this way. Asking for help to feel better is a sign of strength, not weakness. I am dedicated to helping individuals and couples recognize and overcome the obstacles between them and their dreams. Personal growth, intimacy and self-confidence are natural outcomes of successful therapy.

I work with adults, couples, youth and families. I offer a collaborative, non-judgmental approach empowering you to use your strengths, expertise and abilities to find meaning and purpose during life's toughest transitions. Through the dynamic relationship of therapy, I can help you uncover frustrating patterns and behaviors, build insight and awareness to develop and sustain healthier relationships, and move towards healing. Taking the next step to talk with someone is vulnerable, but often life altering and healing in itself.

There are many reasons you may be seeking therapy: you may want help with a specific issue (divorce, loss, depression, anxiety), you may not be exactly sure why you want help other than a vague sense that things aren't right, or you may be experiencing discontent, anxiety or depression even though you function at a high level and are living a "good" life.

Just like life,therapy is both an adventure and a risk. As a therapist,I encourage you to focus on the concept of choice. Our lives are constantly filled with the need to make choices. Should you be in a relationship or leave one? Is your current job the right one for you? Can you learn how to accept and express your needs? Choosing a therapist can be very confusing, but choosing the right therapist can be crucial to living a happy and fulfilling life.Your therapist needs to be someone that understands you and someone that you can trust.

I work with teens, young adults, and men. Teenagers and young adults struggle with a wide array of challenges. I help teens/young adults learn valuable skills that help them navigate their internal experience (ie. thoughts, feelings, and values) so they are better equipped and empowered to navigate their outer experience (ie. relationships, school, and work). Counseling with me can help teens and young adults build their confidence, bounce back from setbacks, focus on their goals, manage stress, and foster healthy relationships.

While some individuals enter therapy with acute distress and specific problems that need to be addressed; others have a more vague feeling of discontent. In either case, the self-exploration of analytic work is meant to expand the way one thinks and feels. Learning to think creatively is one way to describe the goal of psychoanalytic psychotherapy. WIth guidance, an individual learns to hold the tension of multiple perspectives/emotions resulting in a flexibility of thinking that involves both analytic and imaginative parts of the mind. This "full thinking" can be applied to personal life issues, relationships and creative pursuits.

*My practice is currently full* To everyone around you, it looks like you've "got it together." But deep inside, you feel like an impostor. Even though your life looks great on the surface, you feel anxious, as if it could all fall apart at any moment. You'd like to be more authentic, but you worry about what would happen if other people knew the "real" you. What would happen if you really lived your TRUE self in the world? Yikes! That scares you, so you put on an act. But the act is getting exhausting. Sometimes, you wonder if you've spent so much time faking it that you've lost sight of your true self altogether.
