I specialize in anxiety , depression, trauma and a number of other struggles and major life events.
Life can cause us to feel lost, hopeless, anxious and stuck. Sometimes we just do not where to go after feeling shell-shocked from the curveballs thrown at us. Sometimes it is hard not to look at life through dark-tinted glasses. I am enthusiastically motivated to help people regain what might have been lost and develop resources to stay afloat. I prioritize collaborating and building a solid alliance with you to explore your goals and to find direction to feel well and do well. I also strongly believe that this is best done in a manner that is true to who you are and directed toward your needs.

Within a trusting relationship, using proven techniques, together we can sort through distressing thoughts and emotions ( fears , feelings of loss, health/ life worries) and work towards positive goals including healthy behavior change and greater quality of life.
I specialize in helping individuals cope with the difficult emotions and lifestyle changes that often go along with coping with health problems, chronic illnesses and in particular, heart disease. When facing a new diagnosis, a negative health event (such as stroke or heart attack) or adjusting to a major surgery, it is common for people to experience emotional distress and disruptions to their sleep, appetite and quality of life. Often these are normal reactions that get better after a short while, but at times these stresses can persist and make recovery and health management more difficult than need be.

Often times we look back on our past with disdain and dwell on “what ifs” and fall into second-guessing ourselves. In my work with you, we will focus on how you can accept and make peace with your past, while also learning from past situations. I believe that everyone has a story to tell and can learn to embrace their past as a stepping stone for a brighter tomorrow. My goal is to create an open and safe environment where you can: raise your concerns, fears and needs; become more accepting of yourself; clarify your goals; and determine how you can work to achieve your goals and resolve current challenges.

I see a variety of presenting problems including mood disorders, anxiety disorders, relationship problems, and simply problems in living.
We all want to live healthy, engaged lives of meaning and value. As we live, negative events occur which can lead to use feeling "stuck" and miserable. However, I believe that one can choose to live differently, that change can occur for anyone regardless of your age, problems, or circumstances. Therapy with me involves engaging in a meaningful conversation with each other in a safe environment. Part of this change occurs in our establishment of a collaborative relationship emphasizing respect and authenticity. In therapy, we will explore strengths, values, ways of thinking, expression of emotion, and behaving in healthy ways.

Therapy is a place for self-exploration and examination. Therapy can provide help for those seeking guidance to overcome struggles such as relational issues, feelings of depression or anxiety , or other issues. As a therapist, I work collaboratively with clients to identify what I call weights that are holding one down from moving forward in a healthy way. This often involves increasing self-understanding and learning skills to overcome negative emotional states. Initially, we will take the time to identify what you want to achieve from therapy. You may come across scary things like flaws and vulnerabilities that cause suffering.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.
