I am a licensed clinical psychologist who helps adults, adolescents, and couples understand and cope with difficult feelings and behaviors that are getting in their way. Sometimes we feel inexplicably sad, lonely, withdrawn, defeated, alienated, anxious, or self-defeating. These feelings can impact our lives and relationships in a negative way. By exploring and understanding these feelings and behaviors together, we can begin to work on changing the negative patterns and to restore a sense of connection and engagement.

Choosing to pursue therapy is a difficult decision but one that can offer great benefit. I work primarily with individuals and couples struggling to find and maintain intimate relationships they find gratifying. Difficulties in relationships often lead to depression, loneliness, and the feeling of being "stuck." My approach is practical and present-focused yet grounded in an understanding of the ways our past experiences may have contributed to our present difficulties. I help patients to explore and work through what gets in the way of them developing the kind of intimate relationships they desire.

I believe in collaboration and in change. My approach combines cognitive behavioral therapy methods with stress reduction, mindfulness, and problem-solving approaches. Psychotherapy is ultimately about living a fuller, more meaningful life and I believe I can help you achieve this. There are many triggers we all face: relationship and identity issues, loss or trauma, perfectionism, and life transitions. I am interactive and direct in challenging dysfunctional patterns that are getting in the way of leading the life you want. I will work collaboratively with you to develop a plan of action, building on strengths, to bring balance, meaning, and ease into your life.

Despite our best efforts to change, obstacles can be terribly difficult to overcome in isolation; I am dedicated to creating a safe space in which we can explore the thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and relational patterns that may be causing you to feel stuck. I work with young adults on the various challenges that arise when transitioning into adulthood, including creating healthy romantic/peer relationships, early career development, and challenging family dynamics. I have experience supporting individuals in exploring their gender, sexual, and romantic identity development, and welcome members of the LGBTQQIA+ community.

Someday I'd like to write about "Living Fully and Meaningfully When Times Are Hard". Meanwhile, I am committed to providing a therapeutic relationship that helps people find resilience in themselves to do that. Times are hard for many reasons: relational, financial, vocational, or physiology that stops us: anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder or ADD. I treat adults, couples, adolescents, and children with a soft spot in my heart, and clinical expertise, for young children and parents with attachment, relational, communication, regulatory, separation and self esteem issues. Things can change. Through work that uses relational talk therapy, mindfulness, problem solving and trauma based strategies.

Listening defines my approach to your treatment. A major difference in working with a psychoanalyst as opposed to other mental health practitioners is the careful, consistent, deep attention a psychoanalyst gives to listening. Change can occur because the first emphasis of this treatment is understanding, rather than feeling pressured to "do" something. Psychoanalysts develop this skill by engaging in extensive institute training beyond that required for their license. My goal is for you to achieve substantive, durable change through a collaborative approach to understanding the deeper meanings and causes of problems you face.

Do you often have the sense you're not in charge of your own life? In overwhelm? I believe difficulties in living are a sign we've outgrown certain habits, behaviors or views. What may have helped us survive in the past doesn't help us flourish in the here and now. So, we find ourselves stuck - in a painful relationship, an unsatisfying job situation, or with unpleasant physical symptoms of anxiety or depression. Our suffering may be a great awakener, calling us out of the sleep of unconsciousness, asking us what it is we really want. I provide a sensitive, warm spaciousness that invites your whole self to address that question.

However, when this is absent from our lives, we struggle just to survive and we experience pain and suffering.
