Whatever you were feeling before this pandemic is now amplified. You are working hard to be fulfilled at work and in your relationships. You are wondering why it doesn't feel like enough and try harder. You worry that the difficult things that have happened to you might always hold you back. Uncomfortable emotions crop up--anxiety, sadness, hurt, shame and anger. There is self-criticism and blame. Your relationships suffer. Unhealthy choices are made. You wonder if talking about it is going to make a difference. You are ready to do the work, but you want to get past the surface because, in your heart, you know you deserve more.

My favorite clients to work with are children and teens ages 5 to 18 as well as young adults ages 19 - 35. I have an innate ability to connect and communicate with children and teens while at the same time being able to form a relationship with their parents to assist in the work they are doing in therapy. I work to create a safe, non-judgmental space that allows clients to be themselves. As a therapist, I show up authentically and establish a real connection using empathy, creativity, and humor.

In therapy, we look to grow, and we seek help with real-life problems. I enjoy working with both this “growth” therapy as well as with those seeking relief. I enjoy working with clients who struggle with unhappiness, anxiety, addiction, or loneliness. I work with new parents who struggle with the challenge of having a child and/or being working parents. I have strong commitment to serving women who are finding their voice, to the LBGT community and minorities. I am also well versed with clients who are struggling with grief and loss. I enjoy creating a safe place to talk for women, those who feel excluded, and to heal from trauma.

You want to live your adult life as an adult. Many of us struggle within the familiar loops that were set up with our best intentions, except often the parts of us in play formed in our childhood or adolescence. Do you want the adolescent you to be at the helm of your life or the adult you? With over 18 years in practice, I have come to realize that the journey one embarks on when entering therapy is an exceedingly personal and honorable one. As such, I work very hard to be fully engaged in each and every session to help you realign with the best in you as you navigate your life.

I believe there is a natural tendency toward growth, a desire to be more of ourselves and to enjoy the things we do. For many, that curiosity and vitality has been restricted or shut down. This may lead to feeling depressed, like nothing will change for you. Or anxious, it will only get worse. Or perhaps you sense things could be different and are frustrated, not knowing how to access that new way of being. Psychotherapy is a process through which you can understand how these feelings have come about and how to access your natural tendency toward wellness.

Or perhaps you feel self conscious (I am afraid to go to social events, I have nothing to contribute).
