**No availability at this time. I will update this information when I have openings.** Finding the right therapist can be challenging. It takes courage to begin the process. Perhaps you're feeling stuck in some pattern that hasn't been working for a while. Or maybe you are going through a crisis period of change, loss, or emergency. Whatever it is, sometimes we just need time and space with someone who can listen, really hear us, and occasionally ask questions that help us gain a helpful shift in perspective.
There are many reasons people seek out therapy. For some, it may be to find clarity, discover ways to ease anxiety, improve mood or functioning, or process challenging life experiences or trauma. Seeking help and support is the first courageous step towards a more empowered sense of self.
Clients walk in my door because they want something to change. They want to worry less, drink less, be more motivated, have closer connections... They may have attempted various remedies for these issues, but, somehow, nothing has improved. Often clients say they feel stuck, in a rut, or that they just don't feel like themselves. In my initial meeting with a client I am often moved to acknowledge the wisdom it took to seek outside help. My social work background has ingrained in me a strength-based model where I am always scanning for moments of courage: the courage it takes to speak the truth or show vulnerability or take a risk.
In the over thirty years I have worked as a psychotherapist, I have learned a good deal about what promotes a successful therapy experience. The most effective and enduring results occur within a collaborative client-therapist relationship that is interactive, supportive, and mutually respectful. I have been able to build such alliances and develop an environment that can lead clients to fundamental changes in their outlooks and actions. I deal with mood disorders, issues arising from relationships, the workplace, illness, elder care and end-of-life issues..
I have worked for over 30 years with married and unmarried couples who face challenges with intimacy, communication, power, trust, physical connection, collaboration, parenting, and life changes. Many of my clients face some current or unresolved past challenges that have robbed some of the joy, comfort, and closeness in the relationship. My clients often want to create or re-ignite satisfying interactions and greater closeness. Working through these challenges and re-building energetic, and loving connection within a very safe and non-judgmental environment is what I love to do.

I believe that people are not problems, problems are problems. I help people and families to define themselves not by the circumstances affecting them but by what is important to them. I will work with you to explore the moments that have shaped your life, the turning-points, and the key relationships. This work will help draw focus to your intentions, dreams, and values that have guided you through life, despite setbacks.
Good therapy happens when clients feel respected and understood. I listen, talk, interpret, untangle - always drawing on my experience with intergenerational and relational issues - to address your individual needs. Together we can identify goals, overcome obstacles, and help you make positive change.
I appreciate your efforts to seek therapy and hope that this description serves as a useful introduction to my practice. My approach is client-centered, flexible, and integrative, meaning that I draw from multiple schools of theory and practice in treatment. I most frequently offer Cognitive Behavioral, Mindfulness-Based, Psychodynamic and Motivational treatments. I work with adolescents and adults, with particular interests in anxiety disorders, OCD, work-related stress and career coaching, substance use problems, learning differences, grief/bereavement counseling, and phase-of-life transitions.
A highly-skilled, compassionate, and engaging professional, I will provide you with exceptional care and work with you to effectively address the issues which bring you to treatment. My personality, combined with my varied work experience, will ensure that you will have a safe and comfortable environment to explore and address the challenges in front of you. With over a decade of experience in a variety of clinical settings, I have developed a broad base of clinical skills and served many different populations. I have expertise treating children and teens, as well as adults.
Please note, I will be offering in-person sessions beginning August 2022. While I work with a variety of people, many of my clients are high-achieving students or young professionals who are struggling with self-confidence, productivity, and relationships. My typical client has many wonderful goals but can become easily overwhelmed by perfectionist tendencies. I help people explore current difficulties while also connecting these problems to past hurts or losses. Throughout our work, clients are also able to build concrete skills, allowing them to feel less anxious, more like themselves, and more connected in their relationships.
I believe therapy is an opportunity to heal, grow, explore and create change. If you are looking for extra support or guidance through a challenging situation and ready to move to a new direction. My style is interactive,utilizing the client's strengths, as we work together towards achieving your goals.

As a clinical psychologist I have over 30 years of experience treating eating disorders, body disturbances, and weight problems and am the founder and director of Feeding Ourselves. Feeding Ourselves is a comprehensive program for people who want to change the way they eat and the way they confront their weight problem. Many participants have a long history of battling extra pounds. Others may not be overweight, but suffer from compulsive over eating, binge eating or bulimia.

Please note I am not accepting clients at this time. It takes a lot of courage to enter into therapy as it means acknowledging that something isn't working in your life. Everyone who comes into therapy is a unique individual whose problems are different eventhough they may fall under the same category,e.g."depressed." Sometimes people enter into therapy with specific problems while for others there is a need to understand old, negative patterns of behaviors.
