In my 45 plus years of practice, I have found that most patients, before coming to see me may have tried to the best of their abilities to solve their problems. They may have consulted other psychotherapists or other allied professionals before coming to see me. The central task is for us to identify the nature of their psychological puzzle, and to find ways to collaborate in finding solutions to them. I have a particular interest in people who may have neurocognitive deficits. Also, I have an interest in children and adolescents whose parents are in the divorce process.

We often get in places where we feel “stuck” or think “this is just how it is going to be.” The demands of managing academic/professional careers, relationships with friends and family, and emotional difficulties often result in patterns of self-doubt, insecurities, and negative self-worth that leave us feeling alone and overwhelmed. My goal is to provide you the tools and support to see that life can be better and that change IS possible. I will help you capitalize on your already-existing strengths while highlighting patterns of thinking and behaviors that may no longer be helpful in order to live the fulfilling life you want.

Finding the right therapist is essential in one's journey toward overcoming obstacles. I believe counseling is a collaborative and creative process where we join together to establish the change you desire. I utilize a direct, honest, and genuine communication style in our relationship. My approach combines psychotherapy and the use of experiential therapy as a means of building communication, trust, and decision-making through individual and family treatment. My treatment also involves the partnership of animal assisted therapy with my Labrador Retriever.

*Accepting new clients using only Telehealth due to COVID-19* Life sometimes throws us unwanted curveballs and challenges that are difficult to navigate on our own. These challenges can make us feel like we are alone and powerless to change the things we want to change. Navigating these challenges in therapy is a way of choosing to face these challenges head on, to grow, and to heal.

When difficult things happen--trauma, loss, extreme stress--our brains and bodies have an amazing capacity cope; for example, we are flooded with adrenaline to help us survive or we go into shock to protect from the depths of loss. However, sometimes events overwhelm all our capacities, and we get stuck in those events. Using both talk therapy and EMDR, I can help you understand how your mind and body is attempting to cope, learn how to reduce, tolerate and manage the lingering effects, appreciate and reconnect to your emotions, become more embodied, process past events, and find meaningful purpose and connection in the present.

Finding a therapist can feel overwhelming. You probably sense that it’s finally time to reach out for help, but feel unsure of where to begin. Perhaps you feel uncertain if there is anyone out there who can understand, let alone help. I believe that the strength of the therapeutic relationship directly impacts an individual’s capacity for change, and thus my first priority is to cultivate a safe, open, and compassionate relationship with each of my clients. My style of therapy is supportive, lively, and direct. My goal is to help you learn to trust yourself and feel less weighed down by self doubt.

Are you tired of racing thoughts and feeling anxious? Do you find your energy being used to plan the future, control the outcomes, and worry about the worst possibilities, as opposed to make meaningful changes in life? You are likely experiencing anxiety. Anxiety can feel very tiring and could prevent you from experiencing life as you would prefer to. You may also be experiencing anxiety as a reaction to grief, trauma, depression, substance use, chronic illnesses, identity issues, cross-cultural issues, and relational difficulties.
