I work with individuals and couples from a compassionate, non-judgemental, client-centered perspective. I believe that the unique rapport that develops between client and therapist is one of the major components of emotional and psychological healing. My approach is highly collaborative in that we work together to identify problems and creatively find solutions that work for you. I specialize in relationship issues with individuals as well as couples; depression; anxiety; issues of self-esteem; sexual identity and coming out; and LGBT issues. I also have extensive experience and training with families dealing with Alzheimer's disease.

I believe when it comes to finding the right therapist, it is crucial to find someone who truly makes you feel seen, understood, and like things really can get better. I concentrate on the relationship between client and therapist; while fostering a climate of collaboration, support and greater self-awareness to assist and guide you through meeting your desired goals. I infuse insight, a sense of humor and interventions tailored to each unique individual's needs. Though formally trained psychodynamically, I am relationally oriented and tend to integrate elements of modalities such as CBT, Family Systems and Narrative.

Welcome to Accelerated Psychology. I created this practice to offer you the latest integration of cutting-edge psychotherapies and neuoscientific treatments in a warm and compassionate environment. Integrating neuroscientific and psychotherapeutic treatments is often the most effective path to psychological healing and growth, because the two approaches work synergistically to create a brain state that is most receptive to treatment. For over twenty-five years, I have specialized in helping those who suffer from mild or severe anxiety, depression, sleep disturbances, ADHD, or post-traumatic stress, and helping survivors and witnesses of terror from around the world.

Life can bring about many obstacles - whether stressors or a medical condition - and a therapist can facilitate change or healing. I specialize in providing psychotherapy to individuals experiencing adjustment issues to a medical condition or stressor, anxiety, depression, trauma, or a spiritual crisis. If you have cognitive difficulties, I provide cognitive rehabilitation and executive skills coaching to strengthen your mental abilities to engage in home and work. At times, neurological injury brings behavioral changes. We can jointly develop a behavioral plan to manage behaviors to improve relationships and ensure safety.

"When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves." - Victor Frankl. To me, to be human is to experience loneliness, fear, doubt, death, loss, and other emotions. When you are "stuck" in your feelings, experiencing hopelessness, helplessness, sadness, or feeling overwhelmed, talking with others opens new opportunities and allows for a different perspective. I am here because I am passionate about this process. I aim to provide a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere to do this work. I hope to work, think, and feel with you as we explore these challenges together.

People come to me for many reasons. Some are experiencing a crisis, a transition, or are feeling stuck and seek a more satisfying way forward. I work to create a non-judgmental environment so that whatever parts of your story that need attention can be effectively explored. I use an active, engaged style. The goal is to find more effective ways of interacting with yourself and others. We look closely at how the symptoms you carry (e.g., depression, anxiety, addictive behaviors) maintain themselves despite your wish to be free of them. I use the therapeutic relationship to understand what gets in your way interpersonally.

Taking the step to participate in counseling takes courage and demonstrates motivation. Therapy should be tailored to each individual client's strengths and challenges. With that in mind, I believe in taking a collaborative approach. Whether adjusting to current life stressors or coping with past trauma, I seek to empower individuals, new moms, couples, and families to change negative communication and behaviors and build on existing strengths.

We're living in the most complicated year to date. And of course, you have your own unique circumstances and are affected in your own way. How do you even begin to explain it? Who do you talk to? What do you even say? It all just feels — heavy. Being a young person today is harder than it has ever been. We're constantly being alerted with tragedies occurring throughout the world. Another school shooting, another beloved public figure passed away, another instance of social injustice. Is the world ending? As soon as you start to get your bearings, another tragedy strikes. How could you not be anxious?

I enjoy working with married people and single people, gay people and straight people, men and women, therapy beginners and treatment seasoned soldiers. It is hard to narrow down to a "type" as I have experience with a broad array of people and presenting issues. That said, I do seem to connect especially well with creative people: actors, writers, producers, etc. The most important aspect of your relationship with your therapist is chemistry and that is tricky to predict from the reading of a profile. Better to call me or meet in person so we can see about the match.

Therapy during Corona... Life is completely upside-down right now. You have no idea what's happening today, let alone what will happen in a month or two or six. Anxiety is mounting around the shape of your career, the health of your loved ones, and who you will become as the world changes. On paper, You've got this great life. You're accomplished, driven, and people seem to admire what you've got. But on the inside, something's missing...you've never felt good enough, and your inner-voice is a constant reminder. Now, more than ever, you feel unfulfilled - Like an impostor. It's time to feel complete...It's time for a change!
