Is anxiety or depression ruling your life? Are you and your partner having trouble in your relationship? Would you benefit from having a compassionate and competent professional support you as you work toward resolving these difficulties? If so, feel free to get in touch with me by phone, email, or in person, so you can get a sense of whether working with me would be a good fit for you.
Individuals, couples, adolescents and young adults benefit from talking with someone who is objective, empathetic & supportive-- exploring concerns, gaining insight, and learning coping skills to become more resilient. In this stressful world, mental health concerns effect us all. I make therapy a conduit for people to recognize and use their own strengths and help them develop coping skills to better adapt to challenges and overcome obstacles--whether they are with relationships, health, work or family. My goal is for people to use the therapeutic work we do as a "spring-board" to greater success and happiness in their lives.
As a clinical therapist for the past twenty years, I have extensive experience helping my clients navigate through life's challenges. My therapy approach is to help individuals and families reconcile their internal struggles and gain greater emotional clarity. My professional style is warm, compassionate, and emotionally available. I will work with you in facilitating a positive dialogue to regain personal strength and hope in your well being. My therapeutic foundation is evidence based with cognitive behavioral skills to help my clients become unstuck and achieve greater happiness and success.
If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, grief, loss, relationship or family conflict and have been hesitant to try therapy or return to therapy, please feel free to reach out for help navigating these difficulties. We all have times in life when it would be beneficial to talk through and process challenging life events with a trained professional who is non-judgmental, empathic and firmly believes in an individual's internal wisdom towards healing when provided the right resources. Often life has a way of throwing us curveballs. It helps to have another person participate alongside us as we figure out how best to cope.
Offering Telehealth Session & Accepting New Clients! I have a focus on working with clients with various challenges including depression, anxiety, relationship issues & self worth. I provide Phone & Video sessions available during daytime and evening hours. When things feel overwhelming and unmanageable it can be hard to ask for help, I am here to work with you to develop strategies that can lead to a healthier and more manageable life.
It takes courage to seek support, and the rewards of doing so can lead to a lifetime of fulfillment. I understand, have experienced, and can empathize with the emotional challenges life has to offer. Working together, we can cultivate growth by understanding the obstacles that you face and develop solutions that can help you gain control of your life. Ultimately, therapy can guide you to greater self-awareness, self-esteem, and most importantly, a more fulfilling life.
Each person is an individual and needs to have their treatment tailored to their individual needs. There is no such thing as "one-size-fits-all" therapy. Years of experience have made me an expert in both individual and relationship counseling. For me, the ideal client is motivated towards change and who will work just as hard between sessions as during them, who will explore the past and its effect on now and the future, and who will take what is learned in sessions and apply it to everyday life.
I see therapy as a way for you to get free of the habits and perspectives that bind you, so that you can create the life you really want. So much of what makes us suffer is the chasm between how we think things ought to be and how they actually are. Therapy is an ideal way to reconcile these differences, to identify tools that will help you cope with challenges and make the most of your strengths. I use existential and cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy to work with clients on issues including life transitions, anxiety, depression, stress and career concerns.
Do you feel overwhelmed or isolated in dealing with life's challenges? Do you struggle with close relationships? Can you benefit from developing a deeper self-awareness and self-acceptance? My integrative approach to psychotherapy is tailored to meet your personal needs.
We are all on this journey to find meaning in life while alleviating suffering. We want change, but don’t always know how to make it happen. Without realizing it, we may have developed an inner voice that is self-defeating, and habits that are holding us back or causing us to feel stuck in the same patterns. Therapy is an opportunity to grow, heal, and activate long-lasting change. By fostering a mindful and cognitive-behavioral approach, we can tune into our inner world to better understand who we are and how we function in our relationships. When we deepen our understanding of the self we can truly heal and show up authentically.
Exploring a difficult relationship, understanding why parenting feels overwhelming, or managing your anxiety more effectively can be steps on the path towards mental health. My goal is to help you reduce self-judgment and increase insight into the changes you have the power to make. Together, we create a reprieve from life's demands and focus exclusively on your needs. When we understand our experiences more holistically, symptom relief and confidence often follow.
If you are feeling sad, anxious, and alone,therapy can end the loneliness and create a space to explore and eliminate the underlying fears. Together we may identify the parts of you that are isolated and need understanding and compassion. I believe that therapy is a safe place to address pain and confusion while creating everlasting change in your innermost self. I offer a respectful and collaborative approach to dealing with lifes's difficult moments.
