Over the past 42 years, I have devoted my practice to the treatment of people who want to feel happier with themselves, their relationships with their children, spouses, or family of origin. Many times people suffer from low self esteem, anxiety and depression. Parents come in with issues around their adolescent's behavior. Adults wish to improve how they communicate to their spouses, or would like to deal more effectively with problems at work and with bosses, or other authority figures. Many need help with everyday functioning, and some are struggling with confidence issues and initiative to set positive goals for the future.

Families evolve and change over time. As individuals age and grow, their roles within the family also change. The family can help - or hinder - individual and personal growth. Family work can help to make the family a positive source of support. Family work will help you to step back and observe emotional patterns and processes. There definitely can be family change with only one person in the room working with a therapist. In physics there is an adage: for every action there is a reaction.

People decide to seek out a therapist for a myriad of reasons. Many people suffer from social anxiety, chronic low self-esteem or a persistent sense of sadness or loneliness. Others have recurring, often trauma related experiences, which can cause sleeping or eating disturbances, substance abuse, and panic. These persistent, stubborn feelings often make it difficult to function optimally in our daily lives, can interfere with our ability to develop and sustain fulfilling relationships and prevent us from achieving our dreams and goals.

I have always maintained the belief that individuals who seek clinical support are the healthy ones- they recognize that something is wrong and want to make a change. Becoming aware is the first step to moving forward. However, awareness without action can create, frustration, depression, anxiety and an overwhelming sense of hopelessness. It is my job to navigate your complicated and conflicted emotions/behaviors to bring you to a place where you can make healthy choices and decisions. My goal is to teach you strategies that will break the cycle to create a new way of being - to live in the present and plan for the future.

People often turn to psychotherapy when our usual ways of coping with the world become inadequate or counterproductive. We may feel overwhelmed by events, or experience a painful awareness that our lives are not what we want them to be. Sometimes life transitions, such as the loss of a loved one, birth of a child, divorce, job change, or retirement challenge our sense of self, our ties to others, and our understanding of what's important to us. We experience symptoms of anxiety and depression.
