Some concerns that bring people to me are their experience of loneliness, depression, and anxiety; feelings of worry, emptiness, and sadness; a search for connection and meaning in relationships and work; life transitions; perfectionism; self-doubt; relationship difficulties; divorce; searching for life direction and a sense of purpose; loss and grief; and exploration of identity. I work with people through collaborative, interactive conversation to help them gain insight, to develop strategies to approach their life challenges, and to feel known and understood. People describe me as empathic, genuine, and with a sense of humor.

When searching for a therapist, either for yourself or for your child, the process can be confusing and frustrating. Finding the right person may be challenging, but it will be worth the effort to find someone you are comfortable with. Ideally therapy will allow you to tell your story and get to the heart of the problems you have been facing. You will be able to build on the knowledge and strengths you already have and ultimately gain the perspective to move through your challenges.

***ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS*** I believe that there is no "single" treatment that works best for everyone. I have found that the most effective therapy is when it is tailored to the unique needs of each client. We will spend time becoming acquainted with one another and arriving at a shared understanding of your treatment goals. My practice focuses on creating space in which transformation is possible and old patterns can shift into something that allows for growth and possibility. We will work on the issues that you bring to the table, and together, we will carve out a road map that will help lead you to a more authentic self.

With over 20 years of experience in the field of helping others, I have learned that making a genuine connection with people is the best way in which to begin the work of therapy. One of the most important skills I have to offer is to carefully and compassionately listen to what you have to say. We then go from there; when you are ready, we begin to look at how to change.

In reality, every therapy relationship is different. Some people just want to be heard, a place to unload from their dealings with life. Others want more active guidance to grow to the next level or to reduce suffering. I am pragmatic and try to meet each person's specific needs. That may mean simply creating a time and place to decompress; working on practical solutions to life problems; or looking within at the imbalances - anxiety, depression, addiction - that create unhappiness. I am expert in meditation and related spiritual practices that heal inner conflict and restore peace.

Counseling and therapy describe a relationship between two people for the sole purpose of helping one. My work centers on helping people become more effective in their lives and their multiple roles. Breakthroughs and revelations do happen, but they are far less common than most people think. The majority of therapy is, simply, hard work. Doing the work with someone you are comfortable with, whose only focus is on helping you, makes therapy a collaboration that most people find very helpful, often in unexpected ways.

People often ask me, "What is the purpose of therapy?" I believe there are a few answers to that question. First, you come to therapy to defrost grief, unexpressed rage and other negative feelings, e.g. traumas, losses, betrayals. You also learn to re-parent yourself. Second, you come to have a better transition in your work or love life, or to improve your performance and personal relations. Finally, you get to share your dreams and goals in a safe environment, with no judgment, and to produce amazing action plans to manifest your best life ever.

Many of them, as well as other patients, have mood disorders (anxiety, depression and bipolar disorder). I also work with individuals and families struggling with problems in work and career, marriage and similar relationships, and what are often described as existential or spiritual crises--the lack of a sense of meaning and purpose in life. I involve families in therapy when possible--people don't live and learn as isolated individuals.
