I provide an opportunity for people to freely express their feelings and thoughts to achieve the changes they desire. I work interactively with clients so they may develop their strengths and achieve their goals. Assisting individuals in becoming at ease with their feelings, however difficult they may be, is an important aspect of the work I do. Feelings can become useful tools for living rather than disturbing impediments. The ubiquitous problems of uncomfortable feelings, harmful behaviors, and the challenges of relationships, careers and parenting are common areas of focus.

Do you need to move forward in your life? I can help you to understand how the negative beliefs you hold about yourself may be preventing you from taking the steps you need to take in your personal life or career. I work hard to help my clients feel heard, understood, and safe in my office, recognizing that it is only in the context of a warm and nonjudgmental relationship that it is possible to explore the most difficult issues in a person's life--issues both unique to each individual and, in some sense, common to all of us as human beings.

After 25 years of working in different corporate management roles I began my training as a psychotherapist. I had become disenchanted with the business world and was thinking of various career options. I was motivated to become a therapist in large part by weekly talks with a dear friend, who was fighting and eventually died from breast cancer. She told me that she thought I was more helpful than her therapist, and she encouraged me to change my career. I strive to provide clients with a calm environment where they feel safe in working on whatever brings them to therapy.

Are you someone in a creative industry struggling with anxiety and self doubt? Maybe you have a strong need to be accepted by others and never quite feel good enough. It is hard to feel “good enough” in a job that requires you to be the best in order to land a role or get ahead in your career. If you feel like you’re struggling with perfectionism, imposter syndrome, creative blocks, and anxiety in your life, do not feel alone and like you need to deal with this alone. It’s already hard enough to live in this fast paced competitive environment. Why suffer through it?

“Everything can be taken from us but one thing, the last of the human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way” — Viktor Frankl. It is my firm belief that we free ourselves to think and act in new ways when we are willing to embrace the exploration of the self and develop insights into the motivations behind our behavior. We will work together to build a shared understanding of the obstacles that you are facing, whether that means improving your interpersonal relationships, exploring your identity/sexuality/spirituality, strengthening your self esteem, finding motivation and success in your career, navigating overwhelming and traumatic experiences, or identifying maladaptive patterns that may be acting as barriers to the life you want. I offer both short and long term psychotherapy to adolescents and adults seeking assistance with anxiety, mood disorders, mood dysregulation, obsessive thinking, compulsive behavior, ADHD, substance abuse, anger, impulsivity, highly sensitive temperament, and psychoeducation related to psychiatric medication management.

Do you struggle to know what you want? Is it hard to commit? In a time of so much uncertainty, it can be difficult to make decisions.  Maybe you feel blocked professionally or creatively. Or, like a lot of us, your struggles show up in your closest relationships. Maybe you’ve dealt with the weight of other people’s expectations and find it hard to listen to yourself or trust your own voice. Or maybe you worry you’ll be misunderstood. Sometimes you wish someone would just tell you what to do, but that leaves you feeling constrained and inauthentic.
