Coming to see a therapist is often a difficult and anxiety ridden decision. My job, as your therapist, is to acknowledge this and to help you gain a better understanding of what you are feeling and experiencing. Whether you are seeking individual or couple's counseling, we will explore, perhaps challenge, and hopefully find some resolution to your presenting problem.

I guide people to create positive change in their lives, and understand this is often a difficult and overwhelming process. My focus is to assist people with creative problem solving, to stay goal-oriented, and to ensure you feel validated and truly heard so you may reach your goals and move from "stuck" to empowered. I use multiple approaches, such as CBT, DBT, narrative therapy, and mindfulness. Achieving balance in one's life is a skill, and by using different modalities (art, visualization, and sound). I adapt interventions to meet your individual needs.

There are times in our lives when we feel sad, depressed, confused, anxious and despite our best efforts at giving ourselves rational advice, we still don't feel better. In therapy, we work towards building a different way of thinking about ourselves and our problems. Not only will we relieve the symptoms but also achieve personal growth, acceptance of ourselves and most importantly, a liberating feeling of being understood. Every individual is unique and will have different needs and desired outcomes for their therapeutic process. With that in mind, whatever each specific client is seeking will be respected and worked towards.

Choosing to go to therapy is both a courageous and meaningful step in someone's life. In my experience, some clients enter treatment having a sense of what is troubling them and have made great efforts to resolve these difficulties, and yet these painful feelings persist. And other times, clients are only aware of the hurt they are feeling and are looking for ways to identify it's source and alleviate their discomfort. I have found that the therapeutic relationship can be helpful in both circumstances and seek to provide an approach that is best characterized by warmth, flexibility, openness, active engagement, and sensitivity.

Judy Garland said it best: "Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else." I help clients with depression, anxiety, self esteem, "stuck-ness" and relationship issues; and specialized concerns with sexual and gender identity, illness & loss. I see every instance in our lives as an opportunity for evolution. I believe in the search for insight, but also developing practical tools for change. I believe in the value of a good laugh, but also keeping ourselves honest. I believe in the importance of hope and integrity, but also managing expectations & resentments so that we can flourish.

"I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families from age eighteen through every adult decade. My style is interactive, collaborative, and non-hierarchical. My emphasis is on promoting psychological resilience by helping my clients expand their copings skills in the manner of resilient individuals. You do not have to be unusually healthy or come from a terrible past in order to benefit from the lessons of the resilient. I am equally comfortable and conversant with agony as much as ecstasy. If you are motivated to change through therapy, you are highly likely to be a lot happier with yourself and your life over time."

Bipolar Disorder Therapists
The defining feature of bipolar disorder is mania. It can be the triggering episode of the disorder, followed by a depressive episode, or it can first manifest after years of depressive episodes. The switch between mania and depression can be abrupt, and moods can oscillate rapidly. But while an episode of mania is what distinguishes bipolar disorder from depression, a person may spend far more time in a depressed state than in a manic or hypomanic one.
