Contentment and happiness can often feel elusive in the busy, complicated lives that we lead. Sometimes, understanding the reason for our unhappiness seems just as elusive. The way we feel about our true selves as well as the meaning we give certain events in our lives can effect how we cope with the challenges that come our way. Often, we find ourselves in situations that feel beyond our control to recover from. Deep down, you are resilient, and know life could feel better than it does.

At times in our lives, we may be presented with challenges in which we may need professional assistance to assist in overcoming those challenges. The first and perhaps the hardest step is asking for help. Choosing to see a therapist can be anxiety-provoking and I believe that it's crucial to establish an objective and supportive working relationship with clients to help them achieve their goals.

Coming to counseling is a brave and loving thing to do for yourself and others. I am passionate about working with couples and families. I focus on strengthening bonds by helping clients experience the benefits of non-reactive listening, creating appropriate boundaries, and understanding deeper needs. I utilize the Gottman Method when working with couples, and a relational approach to family therapy. I also enjoy working with individual clients, helping them gain self-understanding and compassion. If desired, a spiritual awareness that is respectful of every person's faith commitments can be incorporated into therapy.

I am a Licensed Psychotherapist with 26 years clinical and 16 years of teaching experience. (Please see the SEMINAR page on my website). I blend new effective treatment techniques as well as traditional psychotherapeutic models. In many cases, I focus on solution-oriented, effective, symptom relief. Individuals are complex and psychological concerns cannot be separated from family dynamics, personal history, identity issues, work-related stress, and physical health. When necessary, and with client's permission, I collaborate with all healthcare professionals to create a 'think tank' approach to treatment.

Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) Therapists
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), or behaviors that make them feel driven to do something (compulsions). It affects children, kids, teens and adults. Often the person carries out the behaviors to get rid of the obsessive thoughts, but this only provides temporary relief. Not performing the obsessive rituals can cause great anxiety. A person's level of OCD can be anywhere from mild to severe, but if severe and left untreated, it can destroy a person's capacity to function at work, at school or even to lead a comfortable existence in the home.
