"People seek psychotherapy feeling unhappy or helpless to bring about change in their life or fulfill their dreams. Patients are overcome with symptoms of depression, anxiety, eating disorders, substance abuse or other problems, which in reality are unconscious defenses, blocking repressed feelings about something that went wrong, often in childhood, which is not yet resolved. These defenses once were adaptive, by protecting and helping them survive, but are no longer effective. I help people work through their underlying grief and face their feelings (sadness, anger, disappointment, yearning, powerlessness) surrounding trauma or loss, enabling them to engage in more free, authentic, satisfying lives."

Perhaps you are asking yourself questions like "Do I really want to do this?", "Can I speak freely to a stranger?", "How do I know she will understand me and my issues?", or "How does therapy work?" It's understandable to have reservations. Call/e-mail me to set up a free, no obligation session and we can address your concerns. You'll be able to tell if you feel safe and heard."
