You've been trying to find your way back to your old self again, but are struggling and stuck. Something has to change. For some reason, it seems impossible to do things well enough at work or at school or at home with your family, maybe even with a new baby. You're feeling disconnected and worried about letting people down. It's gotten really hard to keep up. Being stretched so thin and constantly fighting to tread water is taking its toll on your patience, too. Every little thing is irritating. It feels so hopeless to not be able to just pull it together and be more like everyone else around you, especially if you're a new mom.

I specialize in treating addictions to drugs, alcohol, and behaviors such as gambling, sex, Internet, and eating. I also address underlying issues such as anxiety, depression, and relationship problems. I work with adults of all ages individually as well as in groups. My approach to therapy is an interpersonal, client-centered approach. In other words, the client's own treatment goals are of central importance. While issues that initially bring the client into treatment tend to be the primary area of focus, the therapeutic relationship that develops with me is available to be used toward the client's therapeutic goals.

I'm a licensed clinical psychologist. In my 25+ years as a psychotherapist I've come to appreciate the wisdom found in various therapeutic models. So I've developed an integrative approach. I believe it's important to tailor the therapy to the individual. Our past, present, and future all influence our choices and behaviors. So I find it helpful to put on trifocals to see where we're at, how we got here, and where we want to go. As social beings our interpersonal relationships are vital to our well-being and happiness. Sometimes our interpersonal style helps us connect with others; sometimes it gets in the way of our relationships. Checking out our personality style is often beneficial. As individuals we are unfolding in our own unique way and I believe there is an inner wisdom that leads us to who we are and what we really desire. Sometimes we get disconnected from ourselves and need to get back in touch by looking inward. My office has a comfortable living room feel to it. The location provides privacy, is easily accessible by public transportation, and parking is readily available. I have weekday, evening, and weekend hours.
