It goes without saying that these have been trying times. With the stresses, losses, and fatigue of the past two years, anxieties about post-pandemic life, and continued uncertainty about the future, many of our daily routines have given way to depression, anxiety, tension with others, and unhealthy coping. Psychotherapy can provide the support needed to improve how you feel and function by reducing anxiety and depressive symptoms, reducing excess drinking or substance use, increasing awareness and skills in personal interactions, and improving your overall outlook on life.
Starting with the "here and now," I tailor treatment to you, whether looking to change problematic behaviors, get along better with others, make a difficult decision, or develop greater confidence and peace of mind. I offer an integrated approach of Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Motivational Interviewing, CBT, and DBT skills to facilitate change and growth.
People often feel nervous about the idea of therapy, perhaps embarrassed about needing help, not knowing what to expect, or feeling concern about being judged. I strive to provide a comfortable environment, where people feel respected and cared for. With 20+ years of experience, I have helped countless people address and resolve issues of all kinds.
