It's time to start feeling better. You've tried distraction, talking to friends. But like a ball pushed underwater, your feelings of anxiety, unhappiness, grief or sadness keep surfacing. Distress disturbs your life, relationships and sleep. Worst of all, these bad feelings, like a shameful secret, isolate you. It doesn't have to be this way. Asking for help to feel better is a sign of strength, not weakness. I am dedicated to helping individuals and couples recognize and overcome the obstacles between them and their dreams. Personal growth, intimacy and self-confidence are natural outcomes of successful therapy.

Finding a therapist is such a leap of faith. It is one of life's challenges that at a time when you might feel the most vulnerable, you also have the least information about whether someone can help! I'm told I'm good person to talk to if something is bothering you and you want to figure it out. I try to support that inner flame of resilience in the face of all the challenges.

I work with teens, young adults, and men. Teenagers and young adults struggle with a wide array of challenges. I help teens/young adults learn valuable skills that help them navigate their internal experience (ie. thoughts, feelings, and values) so they are better equipped and empowered to navigate their outer experience (ie. relationships, school, and work). Counseling with me can help teens and young adults build their confidence, bounce back from setbacks, focus on their goals, manage stress, and foster healthy relationships.

Looking for a psychologist is difficult. It is important to find someone who is a close match with your needs. I approach therapy with an active style, providing direct feedback in a supportive manner. For more than twenty years, I have been successfully helping individuals and couples through EFT, find greater enjoyment in life. For therapy to work, I believe that the therapist needs to care about, and feel connected to, the individuals he or she works with. Psychotherapy is not just a job; helping people get better and live their life in a fuller happier way is something I strive for.

While some individuals enter therapy with acute distress and specific problems that need to be addressed; others have a more vague feeling of discontent. In either case, the self-exploration of analytic work is meant to expand the way one thinks and feels. Learning to think creatively is one way to describe the goal of psychoanalytic psychotherapy. WIth guidance, an individual learns to hold the tension of multiple perspectives/emotions resulting in a flexibility of thinking that involves both analytic and imaginative parts of the mind. This "full thinking" can be applied to personal life issues, relationships and creative pursuits.

My primary theoretical orientation is Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT). This means that I attend to your thoughts and feelings and to how they influence emotion and overall well-being, now and in the future. CBT offers a number of strategies for promoting change in the direction of one's long term goals. For our treatment to be most effective, you will need to be an active participant and collaborator in establishing your goals. I also ask that you work on treatment in between sessions, and I frequently give homework assignments to assist in the process.

I believe everyone deserves some time to sit down with a strong listener and/or problem solver about their life. The feedback that I receive is, that I empathize & mirror the key issues quickly and help you brainstorm. I then help you get at "reframing" the negative situations and help you motivate and prioritize what is needed to do to actually change. I can work well with mood issues, chaos, panic, addictions and all relationship issues. Every session you should walk away with substantial suggestions to help in different areas. I also work with work career issues, parenting, and women with breast cancer.

You know how most smart, accomplished professionals have a lot going right in their lives but there is this one "if only" part of their lives that keeps them up at night. They are feeling worried, frustrated & anxious. And they are such wonderful people that you just wish they could have what they want. Maybe this feels familiar & you can relate to wanting something to be different so badly. But for some reason it just doesn't seem to change. This is when we feel disconnected from our most powerful, carefree selves & we're not sure how to find relief.
