My speciality is helping those who struggle from the pains of anger, sadness, grief, worry, fear, doubt, work relationships filled with conflict, hurt, disappointment, breaks ups, spiritual challenges, frustrations with family, friends, lovers and spouses. Left unprocessed, each of these experiences turn to psychological infections. These "infections" are known as traumas. Together we will work towards you achieving optimal mental health. What is "optimal mental health"? Great question! It simply means that you're not burdened and paralyzed by past experiences that failed to live up to the expectations of you and/or society.

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, more than a quarter of American adults experience depression, anxiety, or another mental disorder in any given year. While others may need help with difficulties in coping with daily life; the impact of trauma, medical illness or loss, like the death of a loved one; and managing relationship troubles, job loss, stress, substance abuse, or other serious illnesses. For many individuals, these problems can often become debilitating.

My clients often tell me that they've been putting on the happy face for everyone else while inside they are exhausted from pretending to be someone they're not. They come to me because the tightness in their chest and weight on their shoulders is becoming a familiar friend. They find themselves repeating the same patterns with jobs, friends, or significant others. Their spouses don't understand why they can't just pull themselves together. My clients don't want to be snapping at their spouses or kids, but they feel like they are always on edge. They ask me to help them break the cycle to live the life they've always wanted.

Anger is a natural basic human emotion that is often used to express negative feelings. Anger is a secondary emotion, usually a reaction to underlying emotions such as frustration, hurt, loss, or disrespect. Road rage, violent behavior, verbal abuse, aggression, intimidation, and lack of empathy, are examples of issues that benefit from anger management. My goal is to teach people to identify, understand and defuse their own anger by learning healthy expressions of anger that are acceptable to society, so that violence and self-destructive behavior can be avoided.

Effective psychotherapy includes building rapport, trust, and achieving awareness through a collaborative process where patient and therapist work together to achieve stated goals. It includes evidence-based methods, learning about the issue or disorder, applying solutions and developing skills and strategies to manage emotions and realize your incredible strength and ability to persevere in the face of adversity and find acceptance in loss/grief and life's uncertainties. Initially, therapy can be challenging, but it is does become easier over time. To reduce your anxiety, I created a safe, professional, nonjudgmental environment.

GROWING UP'S NOT EASY! Whether you’re realizing how tough it is to be an adult, confronting typical trials of adolescence, or facing an impending crisis, life can become too much to handle on your own. The expectations of others can weigh you down. Simple choices can feel like “life or death.” You often doubt your own judgment. Decision-making escapes you. It’s emotionally draining just getting through each day! You need to quit sinking and come up for air. Life is hard no matter who you are, but somehow it seems much more crucial for a young person dealing with life defining decisions. And every decision can feel life defining.
