People go to therapy for a multitude of reasons and in response to a multitude of problems, but the primary reason is to feel better~~about situations, about relationships and, of course, about themselves. My job as a therapist is to provide a safe environment in which to explore these problems and help my clients discover and experiment with ways of thinking, feeling and behaving that will help them achieve these goals.

We humans are complicated, influenced by chemistry, genetics, history, and social factors. Some people cruise along without trouble until something upsets the balance and then extra support and direction is needed. Some need a regular touchstone to keep on track, satisfied, or living according to their values. Whatever your needs are, I’m glad you are seeking help. I have 25 years experience in the mental health field. I work collaboratively with clients to find strengths and set the course for healing and solving problems. I am inspired by the effort and trust people bring to therapy and try to match it with experience and guidance

The experiences of loss and disappointment that people don’t want to think about, remember, or talk about often come back to haunt them in their current lives. It is just those experiences that clients thought they had escaped and left behind in the past that ambush them at the most inopportune time, seemingly out of nowhere. I believe it is when people are able to confront the shame and guilt of their private phantoms, when they can understand and flesh out sufferings that have for too long been borne alone, that they may free themselves finally from the invisible loyalties that compel them to repeat the past. By uncovering and mourning the sources of despair and fatalism that had secretly pervaded their lives, clients can face the future with a greater sense of freedom and renewed hope for a better life.

I teach people how to listen to themselves and what to listen for. Every problem, anxiety, or conflict is calling for a fresh perspective-- a way to see it from a new angle. Symptoms are the signals indicating that we need to take the time to notice, listen, and explore what we "hear." We can understand and connect with the unmet needs to which our symptoms are alerting us rather than merely silencing the the messenger symptom without getting the important message we need.

Due to the ever increasing demands placed on us and our time, situations can arise that overwhelm our ability to cope. As we struggle to deal with these challenges, we can begin to feel anxious, sad, and even depressed. I believe that all people have an innate ability to navigate through these difficult times. However, we can become stuck, losing the creativity and humor needed to manage these challenges.

My approach to psychotherapy is supportive and exploratory. People find themselves in difficult situations and complex relationships and often need to change aspects about themselves when they discover repeating patterns. I enjoy the process of developing relationships with my patients, understanding their unique stories, and helping them to identify patterns in their life that may no longer be adaptive. I use a strength based approach, trying to focus on what resilience people bring to the table. I find that actively engaging people in a collaborative process is the best way to achieve lasting change.

I’m guessing you’re here because you’re feeling disconnected or stuck in some way… As a therapist, I believe that so much of our health care system along with our capitalistic, consumerist society is deeply flawed. As a result, our bodies, spirit and brains are suffering; we are not machines meant to be tied down to a job for the mere purpose of paying bills until we die. To live a life of meaning, to feel fully alive and full of vitality does not come from subscribing to the old outdated formula and patterns that we’ve been spoon fed and prescribed. Living a life of submission is not a life well lived.

Keeping things inside us is a terrible, lonely weight. It may start off feeling manageable, but it eventually builds up. Often we find it difficult to share with others, because we don’t want to burden them or be seen as “needy.” At these points, I think we just need someone to be honest with about our experiences and needs, without fear of judgment. When we notice we’re having the same thoughts and problems coming up repeatedly, we might need a push to get us unstuck. When an old hurt arises, we may need the space to explore it and the skills to ground ourselves in the present.
