How do I effectuate change? I believe change occurs from a sustained active approach with the therapist. Why is there a need for change? Many people report affective states of anxiety, depression, and stress that are inhibiting them in their work, personal lives, and enjoyment of life. My education and experience put me in a unique position to give people the understanding to find satisfaction from their personal, family and work life. Therapeutic interactions are in the here and now. Understanding often leads to an improved quality of life; alleviating anxiety, depressive feelings as well as fears of being stuck.

I specialize in neuropsychological and psychological evaluation of children and adults (ages 4 and up). Testing can be helpful in determining someone's unique cognitive and emotional profile. Testing is often helpful in determining diagnosis of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Learning Disorders, and Emotional or Behavioral Disorders. As part of the process, I work closely with educational and outpatient providers.

Balance is something we all seem to be trying to find as we begin this new year. All of us have moments when we struggle with difficult relationships and choices. Sometimes we can go a while without addressing these issues and then they come to the forefront in the midst of a life transition like getting married, going through a separation or moving on with an empty nest. I currently work with a number of postpartum women who are navigating the challenges of adjusting to early motherhood. Students come to me when they are struggling with challenging higher education environments.

Sometimes things in your life may feel too hard to handle on your own. If you are tired of working with a therapist who just sits and says "uh uh", if you feel stuck, unable to heal , repair, and navigate the path to make better choices and confront what you have avoided, then my approach which has been successful for my clients over the years can help you move forward and feel healthier and happier.. Whether long standing issues or reactions to recent stressors, from our first visit, my role is that you feel welcomed, safe, and supported.

Deciding to see a therapist requires awareness and regard for oneself. I have deep respect for what has brought you here, and this will form the foundation of our work together. Perhaps you seek therapy now because of a crisis that is presenting new challenges or bringing up old, unresolved problems. Or you now feel ready to address a long-standing pattern that has caused much difficulty and pain over time. These burdens may be affecting not only your relationships with others but also how you relate to yourself. My job is to help you expand your capacity for what you can do alone.

Cognitive Therapy is a model of psychotherapy whose objective is to help people identify inaccurate thought patterns and assumptions that cause anxiety or depression, and that may even affect functioning. It can be challenging to pinpoint and correct these thoughts. Nonetheless, the process of acquiring healthier, reality-based ways of perceiving and actually trying out new solutions to old problems can improve symptoms and mood considerably. In cognitive therapy, I work collaboratively with patients to help them identify and understand how perceptions can interfere with their mood and decision-making, and we work together on a plan to achieve better balance for their life.

The most important factor in choosing a therapist or counselor, once you have established their credentials, is to select someone you are comfortable talking to. Research shows that the quality of the relationship can be more important to the outcome than the treatment modality. For this reason, I try to establish an understanding, collaborative and interactive approach, and I am happy to offer an initial phone consultation at no charge, before setting up our first meeting, You should always feel free to ask me any questions you may have.

I believe that individuals can improve their relationships and lives through insight and acceptance, and by changing problematic behaviors. I offer support and guidance by creating a collaborative, welcoming, and empathic therapy environment. The relationship between client and therapist is an important part of the work, and I pay close attention to this dynamic as therapy progresses. My clients are typically college students, adults, and parents looking for guidance. My approach is informed by Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) therapies, I also draw from other modalities to customize treatment to each individual's therapy goals.

I know how difficult it is to make that phone call and admit that you need help. Because of my personality, education and experience, I am able to make people feel comfortable to finally open up to someone and to let me help them. The quality of the therapeutic relationship is more important than any theoretical approach and it is this relationship that I focus on nurturing and it is this relationship that keeps clients coming back through the years, when they encounter hardships.

Currently accepting new clients! As a licensed psychotherapist, I believe therapy needs to be as unique as the individual and originate from a place of compassionate and collaborative curiosity. I take an eclectic approach that draws from somatic, dynamic, and relational schools of thought, with the underlying belief that all individuals already possess the ingredients needed to heal. My background predominantly involves working with young and emerging adults, families, and athletes.
