Entering therapy shows motivation to heal and grow often at a time when one feels most vulnerable. My approach to those seeking help through my practice is one of warmth and respect. I try to create an environment where clients feel free to discuss any problem. In my view the positive connection between therapist and client is essential to success.

In my practice, I treat adults and adolescents who report issues such as anxiety, depression and interpersonal problems that cause them concern. I work individually, with couples, and in groups, depending upon my assessment of the client's need. My current groups are focused around relationship issues; I also work with writers experiencing creative problems, and students who want to resolve writing blocks in order to complete degree requirements.

The challenges, difficulties, or traumas we encounter in life can make us feel anxious, depressed, vulnerable, or even overwhelmed. Psychotherapy begins with finding someone you can trust, not only to lend a compassionate ear, but also where you can reflect and discuss openly your thoughts, feelings, and actions. I believe in working collaboratively, interactively, and respectfully to create a safe space. By exploring how your ways of coping may have developed and what they may serve, we can help you discover more varied ways of responding to life's struggles, enabling you to feel more hopeful and empowered.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy, I believe that the best approach to therapy is a collaborative, integrated model that meets the needs of the person sitting before me. As your therapist, I am here to learn about you – your experiences, relationships, and insights – to help you understand different themes that may be contributing to your current stressors. In order to get the most from the therapeutic experience, I strongly believe the patient has to be an active participant in the work. Together we will assess the best steps to take based on your personal strengths and abilities.

It is often not easy to be human. Development is an ongoing process that presents unique challenges throughout the lifespan. From the beginning of life, when developmental tasks involve regulating body states and forming primary attachments, to later when goals shift to negotiating romantic relationships, possibly starting a family, and balancing career and family goals, it can be hard to negotiate these challenges. Psychotherapy can ease the distress that can accompany life changes, allowing people reach their potential.

Therapy can re-establish your direction in life and restore your hope. What is not working for you? Do you feel stuck between thoughts and feelings that contradict one another? I have years in clinical practice supporting people to better understand their life experiences and the feelings holding them back. I make it comfortable to talk about sensitive topics, like sexuality and difficult relationship problems. As we find recurring themes and self-defeating patterns, you will discover ways to overcome sadness, fear and other emotional obstacles. Problems, once confronted, lead to insights and new found strength, self- acceptance and freedom.
