Deciding to take those initial first steps toward seeking help through psychotherapy can be challenging. Some initial concerns may include, "How will I know if the therapist is competent?" "What if they judge me?" "Will I feel comfortable telling them what I am really feeling and thinking?" These concerns are extremely common in trying to find the right therapist for you. The key phrase is "the right therapist for YOU..." Everyone is different with different needs. I encourage you to read about my experience and the services I provide in to see if I may be the right therapist for you.

There are times when we feel anxious, sad or uncertain. We often push or run away from the unwanted feelings and thoughts. We have developed certain coping and habit patterns to survive that no longer serve us. We are ready for change. In a safe, non-judgmental environment we will explore what you are wanting in your life and what patterns may keep you from having it and the sense of personal freedom and well-being you may seek. Our goal will be for you to increase a sense of self-awareness, and have the courage to let go of unhealthy thoughts, feelings and behaviors, while cultivating and allowing more strength, ease and joy.

Often the individuals that contact me are in recovery for addiction or have a family member that struggles with some form of addiction.

I love working with couples because so much change is possible. I will work with you to identify and work through the painful and stuck places in your relationship, and will support you in creating a different experience of one another that honors each partner. You will find my style direct, yet compassionate; challenging, yet supportive. The change I aim for is not a superficial one, but one that transforms the relationship. If you have reached an impasse in your relationship or are looking to enhance your relationship by more deeply understanding and transforming your entrenched relational patterns, then we will be a good fit.

"Why is this so hard? We love each other but we can't stop fighting." I understand the hopelessness of living in a cycle of conflict. It is emotionally draining, and it makes everything in life seem more difficult and less rewarding. I became a couples therapist because I believe deeply in the importance of being and having a supportive and loving partner. I will help you to understand how and why you are getting triggered, so you can take better care of your own emotional needs, learning how to turn toward your partner and speak for those needs in a way that he or she can hear you, creating a more secure and peaceful relationship.

Congratulations on taking the first step in starting therapy. For over 20 years, I've enjoyed collaborating with adults, teens and their families to resolve conflicts, and foster more meaningful relationships. Anxiety and depression can cloud our ability to see ourselves and others in a positive light. Together we can challenge negative thinking that blocks goal attainment, regulate overwhelming emotions, and calm the body. In a safe environment we can explore new ways of thinking and being. I look forward to joining you on your journey

My work is based upon my belief that human beings are inherently good and yet all too often adopt limiting belief systems and habitual behavioral patterns which keep us from realizing our true nature. I work with clients who wish to regain their balance and integrity and assist them in learning how to live the lives they intuitively know they are meant to live. Clients often present with depression, anxiety and/or relationship difficulties and seek to feel better and sustain more on-going joy, love, and harmony in their lives.

Psychotherapy is a process for self discovery. I see this process as sacred, creative and deeply personal; with no two processes exactly alike. The more engaged in this process, the fuller and more enjoyable life becomes. One of the single most consistent indicators for a successful outcome is the relationship between the client and the therapist. Empathic attunement, acceptance, curiosity and collaboration are all important ingredients to this relationship. These qualties I am committed to throughout the therapy process.

*NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME, CHECK BACK LATER* Despite your best efforts, life is unknowable - you can't always predict or be prepared for what comes your way. You might need help sorting out what's going on. As a therapist, I have learned that we are not alone in our struggles. People hurt together, and we also must heal together. Through our relationships and experiences, we can grow and rediscover what we thought was once lost. I want to help you down that path of discovery while using psychotherapeutic approaches such as attachment theory, AEDP, IFS, interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB), Somatic Experiencing, and EMDR.
