"I view therapy as a process that can facilitate healing and change, as well as understanding and fulfillment. Whether stuck in a conflicted relationship, feeling lost, struggling with depression or anxiety, adjusting to a transition or life change, feeling unable to break unhealthy patterns or resolve past issues and pain, it can be difficult to know where to start. Together, we can explore the issues you face and identify the direction you want your life to take and the steps needed to get you there. Once established, our relationship can provide the foundation and safety for this process."

"Therapy offers a setting in the service of further knowing and understanding one's feelings, so as to be better able to respectfully care for one's self. Generally, the more choices we have in caring for our feelings, the better we usually feel and function. Learning to talk through feelings lessens the risks of those feelings being acted out in self-destructive ways. Constructive self-management contributes to self-esteem. Self-understanding, in combination with more clearly defined personal boundaries, makes for more satisfying relationships with others."

"Are you feeling frustrated, stuck, or unhappy in your work life or relationships? Is there a deep loneliness with no one to talk to or really understand? Psychotherapy can help and heal. With over 20 years experience, I work by creating a safe, nurturing and understanding therapeutic relationship. My approach is to actively listen and work collaboratively on gaining a deeper understanding of the feelings, internal struggles, obstacles, the impact of earlier life experiences, as well as repeating patterns of behavior that may be underlying symptoms and the root cause of difficulties."

"Although by orientation I'm a cognitive-behavioral therapist--that is, I focus on how thoughts and actions affect how we feel and respond to situations--I don't follow a cookbook approach to treatment. Each individual brings a unique set of problems to therapy, and I start with a thorough evaluation to assess your needs and develop a collaborative treatment plan that is personal yet based on current research. This type of therapy is focused more on the present than the past and on developing coping skills to help you deal with the problems that are currently troubling you."

"The therapeutic relationship is unlike any other relationship because, for many, there are few places in life where you can just focus on yourself. When you feel like you have too much on your plate, therapy allows you to come up for air, engage in meaningful self-reflection, and discover what you are made of and how you can be true to yourself going forward. I am committed to helping you “dig deep” and do the work necessary to break down barriers, make connections, uncover answers, and build the mental strength you need to gain, or regain, more control over your life."

Whatever the problem, my method is usually pretty much the same. I try to make a real contact and to understand what is going on, considering a person's whole life story. After that, we work together to overcome the stumbling blocks to personal development and happiness."

Who do YOU turn to when you realize you're overwhelmed? You've been coping with life-altering challenges and realize you're stretched a bit (or way too) thin and feel tired and ineffective. You've done or considered therapy and sense it's not quite the right fit.
