I enjoy working with people open to reflecting on their issues and sincere about wanting to grow and change. We all at times find that we want to be more objective in our relationships and in our reactions to the challenges that confront us. I find satisfaction in helping people foster their capacity to overcome frustration, sadness, anxiety and fear. Often painful experiences in life cause us to respond in subjective ways, which only adds to and reinforces our frustration and alienation. I hope to build a trusting relationship with you that will enable you to feel more free spirited.

A large part of my practice involves treating general adult concerns such as anxiety, depression, relationship problems, parenting challenges, marital conflict, and workplace issues.
I enjoy working collaboratively with individuals who are looking to make positive changes in their self-esteem, relationships, and effectiveness in the world. I look to help them understand the context in which their unhealthy behavior patterns emerged, and then use this understanding to make practical, lasting improvements. I tailor my therapeutic approach to each client based on their personality, needs, and goals. In my 30 years of practicing, I have seen the life-changing work that can be done by a well-matched therapist and client.

I have experience with the full range of adult problems and work with individuals experiencing intimacy and relationship issues , divorce, depression, anxiety, feelings of loneliness and/or emptiness, loss and/or grief, pervasive unhappiness, disordered eating, life transitions, self-esteem issues as well as a general dissatisfaction with life.
I view myself as both a guide and partner in the growth process which I believe involves exploration and reflection on current and historical issues that keep you feeling depressed, anxious, stagnant or unfulfilled in your life. Understanding current coping strategies and the ways in which they may have been useful in the past, but are no longer serving you well is my focus. While I believe reflection on early experience is important, I also remain grounded in the present and provide more direct interventions when needed. My style is warm, engaged, non-judgmental, empathic and active.

The relationship developed between the patient and therapist can be a wonderful tool for change.
What if we had the courage to look inside? What if we had the capacity to really see what was there and know that we could handle it, whatever it was? And what if we had the tools to apply that understanding with wisdom and compassion into our daily lives, our actions, and our relationships? This could make the difference between just stagnantly surviving and moving forward towards a more fulfilling existence.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a Deerfield relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Deerfield.
