Because there is no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy, I utilize treatment techniques rooted in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), existential therapy and acceptance commitment therapy (ACT).
You may have come here because something is not working in your life and you want it better or because you want more from life. I come with my training, my 30 years of experience as a psychotherapist, my many more years of life experience, my mind, good heart and my intention to heal. You come with your issues, your past, perhaps with your anxiety, depression, or guilt. You also come with your strengths, some of which you might not recognize, and upon which we will build. I believe we are equal as humans, just sitting different chairs. I look forward to working with you.

We, as human beings, have our habitual way to think, feel, and behave which may not always help us cope well. We may feel stuck in the past, fearful for the unknown future, and not being able to be present in the moment. We are not able to change the past and we cannot live in the future because future is delusional and non-existent. The present is the only time that we can do something to make a change and feel better. We do not need to deal with a struggle once we stop fighting against it and begin to practice acceptance and let go of the attachment to our habitual pattern so as to respond with a mindful and non-judgmental mind.

I am a psychotherapist committed to providing a supportive, safe and judgment-free environment for my clients to work through present problems and to address unresolved issues from the past. The goal is to help individuals better understand the causes of their problems and identify patterns, develop better self-awareness and self-acceptance, form healthier relationships and improve the overall quality of their life. Understanding the impact of the past and making peace with it are important components of treatment as one's past can continue to hunt the present time and influence it in ways that are not always evident to us.

We all have a story and I believe that we all have the ability to rewrite that story. We can choose to be the victim of our circumstances or we can choose to be the victor. All human beings have the inborn tendency toward growth and self -actualization.

When is anxiety normal and when is it time to get help? You can't turn off your brain at night? Are you avoiding situations that make you nervous? Do you not want to get out of bed and face the day? Are you feeling exhausted with by all of the worry? These are the signs that anxiety is taking over your life. But you already know that, right? I'm not telling you anything new. The thing about anxiety is that it does not go away on its own and so often people turn to medication. Unfortunately, medication just numbs the symptoms temporarily, it doesn't make anxiety go away.
