I love working with kids and their parents! Loud kids, active kids, mad kids, disruptive kids, depressed or anxious kids, unhappy teenagers with failing grades, school discipline issues or drug/alcohol problems. Whatever the problem, there is usually a fair amount of pain associated with it for everyone in the family. I provide a safe, nurturing environment for kids and their parents to get help.

I have a wide-ranging experience working with young children to adults. My therapy patients tend to be young adults and middle aged individuals. Affording insight in the lifespan is my goal, and I focus on reaching that goal in a number of different ways. Ultimately, I leave it to my clients to tell me where they want to go and we find a path to get there. Through better insight and goal-oriented purpose, we identify the outcomes to strive for.

Change changes you. Whether you're hurt from where you've been, stuck where you are, or confused about where to go, I'm here for you--without reservation. Because right now, you're certainly surviving. But not necessarily thriving. You deserve to be accepted and understood so you can heal, learn, and grow from life's challenges. I can help you through thorny life transitions, horrific grief, chaotic trauma, or living with high sensitivity. I became a therapist after going down and through the darkness of my own traumatic loss, so I know the value of going THROUGH life's difficulties--with an unwavering helper. I'll be that for you.

I look forward to working with folks who want change, but might not know where to start. Sometimes we want to change ourselves, our situations, or just how we feel. Helping people figure out what they want, what they value, and how to pursue that is what I enjoy. Change is hard, and it helps a lot to have an impartial guide, teacher and confidant who can provide encouragement, perspective, insight, validation and feedback.

I believe that people seek meaning in their lives. Internal and external conflicts, difficult experiences, and the trials of life interfere with this human process, resulting in depression, anxiety and panic, personality and relationship difficulties, and gender and sexuality issues. I work collaboratively with patients to help them find better ways to deal with trauma, loss, anger, and self-defeating, repetitious behavior patterns. Psychotherapy and psychoanalysis work to enhance each person’s inner resources to create new coping strategies. The self-discovery that is the process and goal of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis enhances creativity and a life more fully lived.
