"Psychotherapy is one instrument of change for feeling better. For example, earlier psychic injuries may alert us when faced with challenges making us anxious, depressed, endure sleep problems or feel out of balance some way. Long term recovery from addiction, grieving and loss, chronic illness or pain may call for deeper work. Many stress points show up in relationships, at work or in how we feel. Life transitions (starting or ending a career, big changes in relationships/family, starting a young family or retirement ) are important passages in our lives and therapy can be a great guide."

"People may think you've got it together. You may even be quite successful. But underneath you may feel sad, anxious, insecure, or empty. You may have habits you don't like or conflicts you don't understand. The goal is not to "fix" you, but to provide you with insights that allow you to be more effective and satisfied. Therapy is not a one-size-fits-all toolbox. I will help you manage your unique struggles, balancing practical coping skills with an in-depth understanding of you as a person, which leads to your growth and self-acceptance."

"Psychotherapy can be an opportunity to reduce emotional suffering, to understand what gets in the way of becoming the person we want to be, and to find a meaningful path forward. In my work with adult clients, I often am engaged around significant relationship challenges, health and wellness concerns, career misgivings, and blocks in expressing oneself. My approach with children and teenagers emphasizes developmental strengths, family supports, and planning for the future. I provide clinical consultation to other mental health professionals for many of these same topics."

"JUNGIAN-ORIENTED, WITH EMDR. I have an engaged, relational approach, grounded in modern research on the brain, trauma and attachment. I believe the goal of therapy is to realistically become who you truly are--not to fix you, or tell you how to be. If you work with me, we'll look at your personal, family and cultural history, and the beliefs you hold about yourself and the world. Where we find traumas, disturbing memories, negative beliefs and uncomfortable feelings, we can use a variety of methods to loosen then, learn from them and heal them, including SE and EMDR."

"Crises and painful emotions can be the beginning of a journey toward transformation and wisdom. If you are looking for a deeper and more connected sense of yourself, and fulfillment in life, then you may be ready for a commitment to the therapeutic process. I believe my empathic presence - the capacity to hear, see and feel a situation from the other person's vantage point- is central to the healing process. Within such a safe relationship the patient can develop an open attitude toward the unconscious; exploration of the meaning and purpose of one's life can unfold."

"I work best with people who have experienced some kind of Childhood Emotional Neglect (CEN). Childhood Emotional Neglect happens when your parents fail to adequately respond to your emotional needs as they arise in you. If you grew up in this way, you are inevitably suppressing or walling off your emotions as an adult because you were taught that your emotions aren’t important. CEN is largely invisible, and therein lies its power. It is a type of trauma but, unlike abuse, it is characterized not by an event or a presence but by a non-event or an absence."

Anxiety is a normal and important feeling that we developed to protect us from harm. If you are experiencing overwhelming levels of anxiety though, it can prevent you from doing things you care about, disrupt your social life and cause intense distress. Similarly, if you suffer from very low mood and motivation, it might seem impossible to engage in activities you previously cared about. "
