As a relationally oriented psychoanalyst with a Ph.D. in English from Yale, I offer in-depth, compassionate therapy that seeks to promote growth and change through understanding the root causes of your current problems. I am especially interested in working with patients who are open to committing to a long-term process and may have already tried other approaches without finding what they are looking for. If this could be you, please call me for a free consultation to see whether we might be a good fit.

I appreciate how difficult the decision can be to engage in therapy and believe in the power of having a safe and nonjudgmental space to explore the challenges life often brings. My areas of clinical expertise include crisis and trauma work. As a therapist, I am committed to being genuine and authentic with my clients. I have had the opportunity to work with a diverse range of clinical issues including grief, relational problems, self-injury, suicide, depression, anxiety, suicide loss, trauma, abuse, and other issues that can create disconnection to oneself and others.

Do you feel crazy around food? Are you critical of your body? Has movement lost its joy? If so, you're in the right place. I help clients unpack and heal their relationships with food and body. It’s possible (and easier than you think) to eat what you want, when you want it, and accept your body for what it is. We'll work together to find your freedom.

I help clients feel less anxious and more authentic in their relationships. I believe that many people experience struggle in their lives as a result of growing distant from their emotional compasses. I work with individual clients and couples to reconnect with these aspects of their experiences.

In the most basic terms, my professional interests are in the areas of health, identity, and personal growth. My approach is integrative and tailored to the client's needs. Therapeutic sessions attend to clients' current distress and foster awareness on how certain behaviors that were once adaptive may no longer be of benefit. The intention is to decrease distress, foster awareness, and encourage personal growth towards more mindful, healthful living.

I like to say that I specialize in “stuckness.” Over the years, I have been moved by my clients and their willingness to tolerate suffering and do everything in their power to recover, to heal, and move closer to others. I have also noticed that sometimes, despite their best efforts, something seems to stand in their way. This something has nothing to do with motivation. There are answers and I want to help clients overcome these mysterious barriers and break free of confusing, involuntary, and frustrating symptoms.

Being stuck in your problems can feel overwhelming and it becomes difficult to overcome these problems and feelings associated with them on your own. As Albert Einstein once said, “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.“ Allow me to help you navigate your personal and relational struggles through my collaborative therapeutic approach that is tailor made to your personal goals because everyone has a different perspective and past experiences.

My ideal client is one that is able to do three things. First, my ideal client should be one that is can acknowledge that he/she has an issue/issues that is/are getting in the way of allowing him/her to live a healthy lifestyle. Second, my ideal client is one that is able to take that first step to bringing themselves into therapy. If they have support, that would be even better for that will hopefully increase the chances of long term success. Finally, my ideal client will be one that is not just coming into sessions when they are required, but that they are doing the work outside sessions that is needed to have success.

Thank you for taking a look at my profile in your search for a therapist. I value my relationship with clients highly. I pay careful attention to their internal struggles and relational needs, while also tapping into their resilience and sources of hope for lasting change and improvement. I take note of the impact that identified issues have on my clients and their loved ones, and attend to the constraints that keep them from resolving challenges that lead toward more adaptive outcomes. I see individuals, couples, and families seeking assistance with personal, relational, and trauma-based issues and strive to provide the best care.

Whether your goal is to become more productive, to find more meaning and purpose in life, to reduce emotional reactivity, or to gain some control over the symptoms of a mental illness, change is possible, and counseling can help. My approach is individualized for each client, but I most often employ mindfulness, solution-focused, and behavioral strategies. I work with individuals, families, and groups.

People come to counseling because they want something to be different in their lives. Experience has taught me that I must create a safe and supportive setting. And I must be skillful and respectful in order for positive and lasting change to occur. In over thirty years of practice I have seen amazing growth and transformation in the clients with whom I have worked.

When children argue, tantrum, cry easily, or yell it can be stressful for the whole family. As parents, we can feel overwhelmed or worried about the future. If our child has experienced a trauma, we can be heartbroken and at a loss for how to help them heal. Sometimes we wonder if our child’s issues are our fault, or why our relationship isn’t as warm and supportive as we imagined. We can even be upset by our own anger with our child. Our children can feel like they “aren’t good” at getting along, or they can be confused about their own emotions. As a family, we may not be able to do things we want to like going out to restaurants.

You’re in pain, losing hope, and self-worth is nowhere to be found. You're smart, highly educated. You ask yourself, 'Why can't I figure this out?!' You work in a high-pressured job, likely serving and taking care of others. Your spouse can’t stand you. Your kids won’t talk to you. Your boss is starting to ask questions. WTH is going on? You’re drinking too much? Using a little something on the side to get through the day? You’re not sure how long you can keep up this charade. You want your spouse and kids back (most of the time). You want your boss off your back. How to stop the madness? You want to feel normal again.

How can I find a therapist in Gainesville?

Search for nearby therapists or counselors by inputting your city, town, or suburb; or zip code; or a provider’s name into the search bar. From there, you can filter providers by the issues they treat, cost, insurance, gender, and other factors to find providers who are well-suited to your needs. To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or zip code into the search bar.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
