Making the decision to see a therapist is hard but if you are reading this, you've already taken the first step towards wellness and a better you. Celebrate small victories - they lead to bigger ones! Maybe you have a specific challenge you'd like to work through. Maybe you just need to talk. Maybe you don't even know what is motivating your behaviors and beliefs but you know you are ready for a change. Whatever your "it" is, I would love to assist you in exploring, learning, and growing. I meet clients where they are and encourage them to face their fears, achieve goals and take steps towards the life they've always wanted.

As a systemic thinker, I am always looking at a person in relationship to their environment, and the people in it. With a strength-based approach in family therapy, I also use psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral principles, while providing a safe and empathic environment for our work together. I have treated families, couples and individuals for 16 years with a broad scope of culture, age and relational issues. I have helped many people through transitional events that affect them throughout their lives; school, career, marriage, parenting, illness, loss, divorce and retirement. My interest is in the relationship you have with yourself and those around you.

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.

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.

Listening to the narrative of every person's life is fascinating to me. I am empathic, interactive and am a firm believer that good therapy brings results that make people feel more comfortable, empowered, and gives you the strength that is needed to grow. Therapy begins with identifying painful situations, or problematic themes that repeatedly arise, and interfere with one's life. I believe that therapy should be transformative, and I try to provide a healing experience for those clients with whom I work. I am particularly skilled in working with panic disorder, depression, divorce conflict, and trauma, including sexual abuse.
