Anxiety? Depression? Stress? Life Changes? With over thirty years of experience in private practice, I have noticed how sometimes long-standing behaviors can actually create personal problems, cause relationship difficulties, and undermine the achievement of life goals. Working together, we can explore and identify these behaviors and change them. Individual Therapy helps to build confidence as you begin to understand and take steps to modify personal challenges. Couples Therapy identifies and builds upon personal and relationships strengths to repair interpersonal distress. Group Psychotherapy enhances and deepens personal awareness so you improve your connections with others.

Life has turned upside down and is now full of uncertainty. Each day can feel overwhelming, stressful and isolating. At times, it can feel like you are drowning. You may be feeling exhausted from trying to balance work and home life, yet feel like you just can’t get things right. Again and again, it feels you are somehow falling short. Resentment builds. You’re feeling guilty and anxious, but still there seems to be overwhelming pressure to do more and give more.

We all need healthy relationships and meaningful activities in order to have fulfilling lives. When we are struggling in one or both of these areas, psychotherapy can be immensely helpful. Our relationship can become a springboard for the positive changes you seek. While I primarily utilize talk therapy techniques, we may incorporate EMDR, breath work, or other methods. My style is active and collaborative; I will listen, and I will tell you what I think. We may focus on how childhood experiences have shaped current problems or emphasize what is happening now in your life.
