I have been in practice for over thirty years and have had the privilege of working with a wide range of individuals, e.g.,people feeling stuck despite having a great deal of talent, people disappointed or frustrated by their relationships or lack of relationships, people dealing with earlier childhood traumas such as loss of a parent or sexual abuse, and with people feeling anxious and unable to enjoy life. I believe that everyone has a unique story and that therapy can be extremely helpful in understanding that story and creating a more fulfilling narrative for the future.

No matter your past or present, your haves or have nots, life can be difficult. I believe that people want and need to be understood – to feel validated and acknowledged in the midst of their troubles. Without these moments of understanding, life can feel mundane, lonely, or deeply confusing. At the most troubling times when stress, depression, or relationships overwhelm, change can seem impossible. Yet change is made possible through a trusting therapeutic relationship, and a careful understanding of oneself and others.

Choosing a therapist can be a daunting task, often undertaken at a time when one is feeling less than powerful. I offer a free phone consultation to potential clients, during which we'll get to know a little bit about each other, and I can answer any questions about the therapeutic process, including scheduling and fees. In my practice, I make use of a variety of theoretical frameworks to help understand and address your symptoms. I employ elements of cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavioral, psychodynamic, art and music therapies, but my focus is always on you as a whole person, understood in the context of your environment.

I believe that the therapeutic relationship is central to effective therapy. Using an approach built on empathy, openness, and warmth, I provide an environment where you can say anything that comes to mind and be yourself more fully and authentically. When we have our experiences heard and validated by another, it enhances our understanding and acceptance of ourselves. Working from a psychodynamic framework, I believe it is important to learn about our early life experiences and how that impacts our current emotions, thoughts, behaviors, and relationships.

My therapy work is focused on emotional health and wellbeing. I work individually with clients and tailor treatment to best fit each person's concerns, character and goals. I do this by integrating insight-oriented treatment and establishing new ways of being in the present. This combines the exploration of long-standing maladaptive patterns and a focus on present-day functioning. I help also people examine and improve relationship dynamics.

Choosing to enter therapy can be a difficult decision, but finding and connecting with the right therapist will play a significant role in the healing process. I believe this healing is achieved through an authentic and collaborative therapist-client relationship and by providing a supportive and nonjudgmental environment in which clients feel safe to explore difficult issues. There are myriad reasons people enter therapy: for problems that have a direct correlation to a cause or for problems that are imprecise, but impact their quality of life.
