How does your need for certainty play out? Does it force you to try to predict? Does it persuade you to declare things that you don't actually know? Perhaps the need for certainty is powerful enough to rob you of genuine moments with loved ones or with yourself. Research finds that people who take risks (those who step into the unknown) are happier than those who merely reach for reward or gratification. Why? Because healthy risk-taking has rewards sewn into the experience when we authentically try. It builds skills in self-advocacy, self-love and self-worth.

I work with children & teens who have experienced abuse, neglect, and DV. I also see adults suffering from a variety of mental health issues. Many kids come from single-parent homes and have never known or seen their father. Many are depressed, anxious, oppositional, suicidal, and engaging in self-harm behaviors. I've worked in the "trenches" in Residential Treatment Centers for teens on probation, in the public schools, and currently in an outpatient setting for the Department of Mental Health. My approach is primarily psychodynamic, but also using play therapy, cognitive based interventions and behavioral modification skills.

Were you told to control or ignore your feelings? Are there issues with anger? Yours or anger from loved ones? Anger can lead to feelings of shame. But finding the feelings beneath the anger, you can accept and love yourself. And that can change your life.

Therapy can be scary! And I am inspired by my clients who face those fears head on and are willing to do the work. Many difficulties stem from relationships, whether that be with others or the one we have with ourselves. My work with couples, families, and individuals is direct yet warm, empathetic, and understanding as we navigate together how to process the blocks that can obstruct your view and ability to move forward.

Feeling isolated? An interesting career, friends, or loving family doesn’t protect you from feeling anxious, sad, & lonely. The needs of others come before your own? Sometimes, as children, we fundamentally altered who we were to adjust to trauma, role-reversals, and cold parenting. This can create an underdeveloped sense of self or we are sensitive the slightest shifts in the moods of others. Relationships are scary. When happiness finally starts to seep in, an overwhelming fear sets in that it will all collapse & disappear.
