It takes courage to discover personal insight, to address current challenges, and/or to heal past wounds. And, we arrive to therapy for various reasons. Sometimes, we come as individuals, sometimes as a couple or a family. Together, we address your goals so that you can gain a better understanding of what may need to transform in order to live your best life-- whether it's a life transition, such as divorce or career change, the desire for different coping skills, addressing compulsions or addictions, experiencing loss and moving through the grief process, identifying a sense of purpose, or making sense of a traumatic experience.

I use Positive Psychology to inspire and help people thrive. I'm told I'm warm, down to earth, and that I have a good sense of humor. I believe therapy needs to show results. Not years later — but soon. I see both individuals and couples. My approach combines Positive Psychology and CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), with mindfulness and a powerful mix of the best approaches known to modern psychology.

Individuals contact me because they are feeling joyless, depressed, hopeless or have unexplainable mood swings. Some are constantly worried, anxious, or panicked and may not know why, or how to calm themselves. Others struggle with chronic feelings of being inadequate or deficient and not feeling worthy of receiving positive recognition. Some are troubled by how over-reactive they can be to people, events or circumstances in their life. Others feel little control over their behavior whether it is outbursts of anger, compulsive sex, gambling, or substance abuse. And some have difficulty achieving and sustaining friendships or intimate relationships.

In my practice I work with couples, individuals, families, as well as adolescents.
My work centers around depth psychology and mindfulness, which means I look beneath the surface and at the deeper patterns in one's life. I believe psychotherapy is about integrating and bringing to consciousness parts of ourselves that have been left behind or ignored. I see psychotherapy as a journey to move forward in life. I help clients gain an understanding of who they are, how life experiences shape patterns that govern their lives, and provide them with practical tools to change those patterns.

Showing up in life can be overwhelming but I believe showing up is half the battle and from there we can create a collaborative therapeutic relationship to help you on your path of healing and self-discovery. I integrate principles of psychodynamic, attachment, mindfulness and humanistic theoretical approaches into my work. I believe that by looking at events and relationships in our past can help us understand patterns in our present that no longer serve us or have made us feel stuck.

Who can benefit from Neurofeedback? Individuals of any age can benefit from EEG training.
In my years of practice I have felt that something was needed that could not be touched despite excellent talk therapy: the answer is combine it with Neurofeedback. It is a brain exercise system that helps you change by creating a more functional and stable brain state, reducing anxiety and depression, PTSD, migraines, artistic blocks, and ADHD. It enhances focus, clarity, memory, and improves relationships. I work with the entertainment industry, schools, trauma survivors, and I teach psychology and creative process at Antioch University.
