The unique experiences, expectations, and traits of each person require an individualized approach to psychotherapy. As I work with an individual my approach may include elements of modern psychoanalysis, cognitive behavior therapy, family therapy, and client centered counseling. I utilize recent research in neuro-psychology to inform the various theories of psychotherapy. Faculty members, students, and creative individuals, as well as foreign nationals and first and second generation Americans are groups with whom I have significant interest and experience. A special interest of mine is facilitating the growth of individuals who want to change long term problems with self-esteem, interpersonal relationships, anxiety and depression.

Do you feel trapped in your thoughts and emotions? For many people dealing with stress, anxiety, depression, or trauma emotions and thoughts can feel like they are constantly overwhelming and painful. They can often feel trapping, keeping you from enjoying life the way you might want to. However, it doesn't have to stay this way. Together we can learn how to manage these seemingly uncontrollable painful experiences. Understanding our internal experience, and being equipped with tools to handle our reactions, is often the key to improving our lives.

I believe it's important to have a place where you can feel safe and comfortable when in therapy. I try to provide that for my clients. There is usually a point in everyone's life where they need a little extra help and guidance to deal with depression, anxiety or stressful life events. The best thing you can do for yourself and your family is to get that help and work on improving your quality of life. You won't regret making yourself a priority even with all the other demands on your time.

The search for a therapist is never easy and I believe fit and comfort are essential in providing effective therapy. I strive to make coming to therapy a comfortable experience and to provide a safe space. I work with people wanting to reduce their anxiety and depression to build skills, gain insight, and increase self-awareness. I find that life transitions, big or small, can have a resounding effect on a person’s well being. Finding balance and building on personal strengths in order to achieve identified goals becomes important in these moments, as well understanding the importance of self-confidence. I strive to work with clients to find themselves and their individual nature that can help them through whatever they may face.

I offer practical, solution-focused goal-oriented psychotherapy aimed at timely symptom relief and problem resolution. My clients, being adults, determine their own therapy goals and agenda. My style is respectful, but interactive. I do not tell my clients what to do but I will always tell you honestly how I feel about the things that you present. I believe therapy should be time-limited and results-oriented, NOT a life-long continuous process. I believe that people can change, or else I would not be in this business. I delight in helping people master the tools which facilitate desired change.

Are you finding it difficult to manage the many roles in your life? It can be challenging when handling the multiple demands of husband, wife, employer, employee, caretaker, mentor, sibling, friend, volunteer and neighbor etc. Sometimes, it is hard to breathe because our minds are constantly thinking about what we have not accomplished for the day, the week and even for the future. This anxiety can impact the way that we navigate through life and can also affect our relationships.

I believe your well being is all about you - your progress, your presence, your potential, and your peace. The pace of life is dizzying and often disorienting even for the healthiest person. We all bump up against obstacles and events that cause us to pause, reflect and assess the road we are traveling. Sometimes the moment is brief. At other times it is protracted and complicated. I'm here to explore life's turns and detours so that, together, we may restore these moments for a useful purpose.

I treat older adolescents, adults and couples in psychotherapy. I use an interactive, psychodynamic approach in which I help clients understand how problems in their early relationships with their parents and siblings affect their current intimate and work relationships. I help individuals discover and work through underlying issues which are causing anxiety, depression, or other unwanted behaviors, such as eating disorders or relationship disturbances.

Perhaps you've found yourself stuck in self-defeating patterns of thinking or behavior – struggling with feelings or symptoms you can no longer ignore. Maybe life has thrown you a curve ball you can't manage with your existing coping skills. If the solution was simple, you'd probably have figured it out by now. Over 25+ years, I've helped numerous individuals and couples with diverse backgrounds, strengths and concerns to get "unstuck," make significant gains and achieve greater satisfaction in relationships, work and life in general.

We live in a culture where we deal with daily stress and sometimes trauma based on our marginalized identities, whether they be race, gender, sexual orientation, class, or ability level. Combine that with the ongoing effects of the pandemic and the stress of the constant negative news feed, and it becomes easy to feel overwhelmed and lose our balance. Having been in practice for 18 years and tuned into the ways in which our culture affects us all, I'm here to help. Reaching out to a therapist can be scary. I work to create an open, judgement-free environment where we will work on your problems collaboratively.
