I am a psychologist experienced in helping children, teens and adults. My experiences in the mental health field began in 1981 and include working with the seriously mentally ill, treating traumatized children, and working with the oppressed. These experiences have taught me the importance of maintaining compassion for others even when they are in extreme states or are easily wounded. Working with different cultures has taught me to respect the world view and values of others. My background helps me to understand struggles of all types with a greater depth and sensitivity. All problems, worries and concerns are significant and deserving of a serious approach.

If you are struggling with problematic life situations such as trauma, grief, relational issues, or other emotional difficulties, then now is the time to address them. Change can be a scary process and taking the first step to deal with a difficult problem may seem overwhelming. Working with a professional therapist can help to make those life transitions and the process of change more manageable, achievable and rewarding. I have spent the last twelve years helping people resolve a variety of difficult psychological and emotional problems.

After over 40 years of practicing psychotherapy, I've learned that the quality of the relationship between therapist and client is an incredibly powerful catalyst for personal growth and healing. The core of this unique bond is trust. I focus on building trust through repeated experiences of empathy, heartfelt responses, helpful insights, shared humor, and a readiness to admit and repair mistakes. As the foundation of safety takes hold, we explore the issues that brought you into therapy. We can explore the traumas of the past that deeply disturb your sense of well-being.

Sometimes negative thinking, anxious thoughts, unhealthy relationship patterns, previous traumas, (or something else) holds us back from reaching our true potential. It's during these times, that it's difficult to see your value and the strengths you bring to yourself and others. It doesn't have to stay this way.

***Please note: I'm not on insurance panels, but accept clients utilizing out-of-network benefits*** One of the most challenging, frightening, and rewarding endeavors any person can do is to decide that things need to be different. How that needs to look may involve both expected and unanticipated barriers, feel overwhelming, lead to questions about personal meaning and purpose, or trigger what feels unresolved. We may not figure out all the answers and solutions together, but you don't have to move through it alone. My hope is to help you emerge more empowered, heard, supported, resilient, and clear about what you need.
