Pain is an unavoidable and a necessary part of life. But suffering -- especially prolonged, "punishing" suffering -- is not. So many people seeking therapy suffer from anxiety, depression, difficulties in relationships, and self-sabotaging behaviors. We use defenses to avoid our emotions. Ironically emotions aren't the SOURCE of pain but in fact are there to HELP us HEAL from the painful losses, hurts and challenges of life. You don't come to therapy to talk about your week. You come for relief from your suffering, for a chance to work through and find meaning in your pain and, just as with a broken bone, heal stronger and better!

In the past 16 years I have studied locally and internationally an evidence-based treatment, "Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy". My work is focused, active, compassionate and collaborative. Together we help you to know yourself in the deepest way possible, to remove barriers blocking success and enjoyment in life and help you be your best friend!

I love my work. I approach every hour, every minute, every moment as a golden opportunity for insight, growth and change. If you're reading this, you are hurting. You can learn from your pain and "gain" from it. But how can you learn, adapt, grow, deal with stress and thrive when you are depressed, anxious, self-defeating and self-sabotaging? I can help!!
