I specialize in treating anxiety, living with chronic illness, caregiver stress, and depression, as well as, developing coping strategies for more general life complexities and stress.

Treatments modalities include coaching, behavioral, CBT, Mindfulness solution focused and psycho-dynamic.
I provide my clients with a safe environment for therapy or coaching, and ongoing respect. My clients share “their stories”, past, present, life, stress/transition, mental health, family/couple, goals & other. My style is interactive, I like to build upon my client's strengths as we work together to achieve their goals. As a Therapist & Life Coach, I strive to provide my clients with a positive experience. Treatment should conclude with them feeling better about themselves & having met "Their Goals”. The passion I felt for the career & people I worked with many year's ago, and today, remains.

Many clients wish to draw on mindfulness practice and understanding in our work together and outside of the therapy hour.
I work with adults and adolescents who face the usual and unusual problems that arise from living, and who wish to deeply explore what matters most in their lives. As a lifelong student/teacher/writer on mindfulness and psychotherapy, many clients wish to draw on mindfulness practice and understanding in our work together. However, I am well trained over the course of many decades in a breadth of techniques, and draw on a range of approaches as we collaborate on the question of "what works" in therapy and life itself.

With training in psychodynamic psychotherapy, family systems theory, addictions, grief and loss, and mindfulness , I work these orientations to facilitate the development of your internal resources and natural strengths so that your relationship with yourself, with loved ones in your life, and rich and fulfilling engagement with your world is improved.
My approach as a psychotherapist is to work as a consultant to you, facilitating your intention and effort to live the best life you have envisioned for yourself. This will include exploring personal impediments and challenges to this goal and promoting your unique strengths and resources. My attention is directed to the whole person, incorporating an appreciation for the dimensions of "knowing" that reside in the experience of intellect, physical being, emotion, and the spirit. I am warm, empathic, interactive and professional, and fully respect each person's individual life circumstance and process.

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.

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.

I am straightforward in my approach, focusing on helping clients achieve behavioral change towards living in line with their values and priorities. I provide treatment that is founded on evidence based principles, meaning that I base treatment on knowledge gleaned from research and science while also allowing for flexibility to accommodate to the individual with whom I work. I have been trained in a variety of treatment modalities and work from within an acceptance based cognitive behavior therapy framework. Balancing acceptance of our experiences and channeling our strengths towards behavior change is, I find, the most useful path forward.

CBT really works! Especially when you are working with a trained and experienced therapist. I hold advanced certification in Cognitive Behavior Therapy and use this approach exclusively. Together we will work to improve your insight, mood and motivation. You will learn what influences your mood and decision-making, and how ways of thinking and doing can lead to feeling stuck and hopeless. In addition to CBT, I can teach you powerful skills to improve distress tolerance and emotional regulation. These are skills you will learn to use now, and can rely on in the future. Let's get started!
