"Just listening and asking you "How does that make you feel" is not my approach. We will get work done and you'll get tools to use in your day-to-day life. I'm authentic in sessions, which helps clients relax and creates a collaborative partnership rather than a hierarchy. Working with people from different backgrounds, cultures, gender identities, and sexualities, I acknowledge the need for different approaches and work with you to find the most engaging methods. I am very active in sessions and keep a relaxed atmosphere as we collaborate."

"I am a Jungian-oriented psychotherapist with an extensive background in the arts. As such, I avoid diagnostic labels and preconceptions, approaching each client as a unique individual and tailoring my work to fit his or her evolving needs in developing a better relationship with both inner and outer worlds. Although my preference is to work in depth with long-term clients, I am also comfortable with those seeking short-term work on specific issues--especially couples (straight, gay, or lesbian), with whom I do both premarital and separation counseling, and parent-child and sibling dyads."

"I believe that a good psychotherapy treatment should facilitate a process of self-inquiry, where one discovers, over time, how to become more authentic, both with oneself and with others. I practice deep listening with my patients and hold space while they explore their inner world, thoughts, feelings, fantasies, and visions. I specialize in treating people with mood disorders, distress associated with chronic medical conditions, and substance abuse problems."

"A lot of us have a hard time asking for help. Fear, shame, or needing to be self-sufficient are feelings that can get in the way of recognizing when we need help--and reaching out and asking for it. My approach to therapy creates a safe place where sensitive, painful or scary feelings can be openly explored without judgment. We form a partnership to figure out what is going on and how to move forward. I'm actively engaged in our work--it's a partnership, after all--to help you overcome problem behaviors and develop better ways of coping."

"I want to assist you in examining why you feel like your life is not where you think or sense it should be. Why you have a nagging feeling that perhaps you're wasting time and not living your life in a more deep and fulfilling manner. You may think you're “not good enough,” or “if only this would have/not have happened," life would be different. The activities you do feel banal, going to work/school is dreadful, relationships and family are difficult, and the values and beliefs that once held you have lost their ground. You feel lonely, depressed, anxious, and perhaps substance use is worsening. You’re wondering about doing therapy."

"Using short-term evidence-based therapy, I help people thrive by addressing feelings of depression, anxiety, stress, or experiences of perfectionism, stress, fear of failure, or personal concerns, and who are finding these issues to be impacting their personal and/or professional lives. Due to the many stressors we face, be it parenting, a major transition, loss, or relationship issues, individuals can often lose connection with the inherent strengths they bring to the world - strengths that help them navigate life, make decisions, and solve problems.

Do you wonder what is holding you back from thriving in the world? In our hectic world we often find ourselves afraid to take risks that could jeopardize the stable lives we've created for ourselves. We remain in jobs, relationships and old patterns that no longer work, while symptoms such as anxiety, depression, stress, anger and self-defeating patterns keep us from making real changes to our lives."
