I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor who has worked in the field of Mental Health and Substance Use disorders for twenty+ years. I am especially concerned for, not only the person who uses, but the people who have been affected by a loved one's behaviors, be it substance use or something else. Often dealing with a loved one's issues can cause significant impairment in your own life and mental health. Self-care is essential if you are going to live a sane and happy life. To help someone else, it is of upmost importance to have support and help for yourself.

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.

Hello and welcome. It is never easy making the choice to begin therapy. Confiding in someone you don't know takes a lot of courage. With so many professionals out there, it can feel daunting and overwhelming to try and find the right person. A person you feel comfortable with, a place where you feel respected, a space of trust and safety. When I meet with a new client, my priority is to make sure you feel safe, respected, and heard. By working together, you will realize you are not alone.

Psychotherapy involves a commitment and 'fit' between therapist and client. Respect for the individual, creating an atmosphere of easy communication, focusing on the presenting issue(s), and a problem-solving approach are all elements that I particularly value and work to create and maintain.

We avoid psychotherapy for the same reasons we avoid the dentist, the accountant, or an ex— we’re sure they’ll tell us something's wrong and we’re afraid it might be our fault! Who wouldn’t be ambivalent? Some people might struggle emotionally for a week, a month, or even a year before reaching out to a therapist. And it makes sense— it's hard to confide in a stranger and it can take a while to find the right fit. We want someone who is authentic and experienced, but is also easy to talk to. For some, the flexibility to connect with our partners, children, and family members is even more important. We need someone who "gets" us!

Impediments to happiness are worth exploring. Whether the goal is to better your life, improve your relationship, or become a better parent, change is always possible. Relying predominantly on cognitive behavioral strategies, I'll work with you to alter unhelpful patterns of thinking or behavior, and so change the way you feel. Where appropriate, a psychodynamic approach can uncover patterns influenced by unconscious thought. Many personal troubles are the result of mental processes that are hidden from us - developing insight can allow you to process vulnerable or painful feelings and begin changing those patterns.

Maturity, empathy and well developed listening skills are assets which I offer. I've been especially interested in helping women during pregnancy, and the postpartum period and resolving grief and loss from miscarriages. In addition, addressing issues of depression, anxiety and posttraumatic stress in men or women is especially gratifying to me. I often begin by teaching techniques for stress reduction, or in the case of lethargic depression, ways to energize the body, which help people function better quickly. Most important to me is helping people find hidden strengths and restore inner balance.

If you yearn for a more fulfilling relationship, greater self-esteem, a more enjoyable, purposeful life, or healing from the past, it means you’re paying attention. There’s always room for growth. Perhaps you aspire to improve one aspect of your life or several areas. Maybe you feel discouraged and lost because you’ve worked hard to make things better and haven’t seen a difference, or you’re newly aware of the need for a shift in life and this is your first try; either is okay. Successful change doesn’t have to start with self-confidence or a plan. It just requires the willingness to reach out and not take the journey alone.
