We all have rainy days. Likewise, we all have sunny days, cloudy days, and all other variations that enable us to live a fulfilled life. Yet for some of us, sometimes the 'not great' days last weeks, at times months, and even years. This makes life just that much harder to live. It makes relationships hard to make and keep, makes it difficult to succeed in school or work and impairs our ability to complete even the simplest of tasks. We can work together in order to embrace these experiences, cope with hardship in a healthy manner, move forward and live each day to the fullest.

I use focused curiosity and a strengths based assessment to help you explore your concerns and to identify what new skills you could benefit from learning. Collaboratively, we create the plan that allows you to reach your objectives at the pace that feels comfortable for you. With a banquet of psychological theories to choose from, I utilize those that fit your specific personality and your specific need. I don't believe that one size fits all. Uncomfortable challenges in life are to be expected, but suffering is not. With support, new perspectives and effective strategies for cognitive and emotional management, they can become mere speedbumps.

I work from a primarily relational based framework that takes into account various influential factors, some of which include the impact of early development, attachment relationships, components of identity, methods of striving for significance and belonging in the world, and strategies for establishing resilience and coping with distress. I take on a curious and collaborative approach with my clients in examining these influences. Doing so brings about awareness of one’s sensitivities and stressors, core values, and the patterns of behavior that cause one to feel “stuck” or overwhelmed.
