I specialize in working with those living with chronic illness and wellness needs. My own personal experience led me to this professional journey to help those facing issues such as chronic disease, weight management, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, and self-care. In addition, I have a degree in nutrition and work with clients about their relationship with food and nutrition. Many issues we face with our well-being affect our relationships as well. Our well-being affects those we live and work with. I believe in creating healthy boundaries and learning effective communication habits in order to grow, thrive, and be well.

Are you feeling stressed and stuck? Sometimes a change in life circumstances can leave us feeling at a loss, striving to move forward. Times of transition provide an opportunity to reflect on new possibilities, examining what changes we may want to make to regain balance and move forward. Psychotherapy or life coaching can support you on your path. I provide a confidential and safe space for learning more about yourself, identifying obstacles, adopting new strategies, and exploring personal growth. Together we navigate the path towards clarity, hope, fulfillment, and greater meaning.

We will work at your pace in a supportive, nonjudgmental and safe place to reach the counseling outcome you desire. My clients come to therapy with many life stressors and events that have led to such things as depression, anxiety and trauma. They want to feel better and regain control over their life.

Relationships, careers, and retirement dreams cannot thrive when you are hurting. I work with adults, both individuals and couples, to treat grief, anxiety, depression and difficult life transitions (retirement, divorce, relocation, illness, end-of-life issues), as well as communication and sexual functioning. Some clients are anxious to free themselves from nagging issues of the past, while others struggle to discern the best path for their future. I support couples who want to increase intimacy, and I help couples who have already decided to separate to do so as respectfully as possible.

Many of us struggle with conflicting thoughts and emotions. Facing challenging decisions, navigating intimate relationships and family, and carrying too many responsibilities can be overwhelming and often too difficult to work though alone. Unresolved issues and traumas can lead to feeling "stuck" rather than taking steps towards finding solutions and healing. Many people resort to "quick fixes" when feeling lonely, anxious, or depressed, instead of addressing the root cause of the pain and discomfort. My experiences and training allow me to help you find tools within yourself to discover new perspectives and cultivate new skills.

In my 35 years as a NY licensed psychologist, I have found that most people come to psychotherapy in some degree of pain, distress or anxiety. In my office patients find a climate of ease that encourages self-disclosure and a warm therapist-patient relationship. I strive to collaborate with my patients to help identify what is really troubling them so they can develop compassion for themselves while coming to terms with their circumstances.

I don't believe in a one size fits all approach, I tailor each session to your individual needs. Our work together will leave you feeling empowered to move forward in the right direction. My varied experiences include work in college settings, hospice, oncology, geriatrics, maternal health & crisis debriefing.

What type of Downtown, Sarasota mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Downtown, Sarasota?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
