At the root of transition is “transit.” This passage from one place to another can feel Disorienting & Unsettling, particularly when a career or job change is involved. Your work identity is a vital part of your being and center of gravity. An important first step is considering what you really WANT to do at work and equally important - what you DONT. If you're new to the workforce, consider how to apply skills acquired in life & in school in a first job. Bottom line, you need to KNOW and feel at ease Telling Your Story, showcasing your brand on your resume, crafting compelling cover letters, & that Interview! I'm here to help.

Sexuality and relationships are complex, and sex therapy is not just about sex. Great sex is more about your relationship with yourself and others than it is about technique. In sex therapy, we identify and work through the emotional issues that contribute to sexual problems by using cognitive therapy to change problematic thoughts and attitudes and incorporate behavioral techniques to change physical symptoms and behavior. I use a sexual health model and work with individuals and couples of any sexual orientation & lifestyle. Interventions include psychoeducation about sex, mindfulness exercises, and repairing relationship issues.

Life happens! At some point in our lives we are faced with challenges that effect us personally or professionally. Sometimes we have people we can talk to about these minor set backs. Other times, we wish there was someone we could talk to, honestly, about the most troubling aspects of our lives without fear of being judged. Having a supportive person in our lives who is objective makes a difference in getting through these "bumps in the road". This is, ideally, what a counselor or therapist is for.

We all experience ups and downs in our life. At times, though, our challenges become overwhelming and difficult to manage alone. Unresolved trauma may be affecting your overall mental and physical wellness. Or, you may be struggling with relationship and marital challenges; facing difficult life transitions; or dealing with symptoms related to anxiety or depression. It is important to know, however, that you are resilient and you have ability to heal, improve self-awareness, and make healthier and positive changes in your life.

Life comes with many complex challenges. We often feel alone, inadequate and challenged to be fully authentic with those we love. Sometimes we lack the necessary support, or the people we look to for help are hurting us. Mental health is strongly influenced by our ability to get our needs met. Psychotherapy is a process where we take a close look at your needs, including the thoughts and feelings you have when you feel stuck. By identifying, fleshing out and contextualizing your reactions, we gain a deeper and nuanced understanding of you. This process will help you find freedom of choice and greater fulfillment.

You are the one people turn to for help. You've never been the one to get the kind of help you so freely give others. And it's all starting to catch up with you. Now with the pandemic, it's even harder to manage stress and anxiety. It's beginning to take a toll on your health and you are worried that if you don't get a handle on your stress soon, you might have even bigger problems to deal with. Enough is enough.

TELETHERAPY APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE. Ideally, I want to create an environment that allows my clients to find their way, learn about themselves, and grow to be leaders in their treatment. The approaches I use give clients the ability to take the initiative, evaluate and then make a plan of action. Making the decision to enter into therapy is a challenge in itself. But in the end I want to meet the client where they are at and go from there. Where applicable I use Motivational Interviewing, mindfulness, play therapy, career/coaching and other modalities in practice.
