I specialize in helping couples, families, and children. As human beings, we have a need to feel connected to a significant other who becomes like a safe haven and a source of security and comfort. This person helps us to face the world with confidence because we know there is someone who cares about us. When we feel disconnected from our attachment figure, we feel unprotected and life's challenges seem to be bigger and scarier. I help people to feel secure in their relationship by strengthening their bond so that they become responsive, accessible and emotionally engaged to their partners.

Are you struggling with substances but feel “rehab” isn’t right for you? You don’t need to leave your job or family for a month to find the help you need. Addiction is tough: that compulsion to go back and do the same thing over and over, even though you know it's destroying your life... You feel fear, anxiety, failure, worthlessness, humiliation, contempt... You've tried to break the 'habit', get your control back, but just when you start feeling some success you stumble, and you're back in the same hole again. Breaking your substance abuse alone is not as simple as it sounds. Counseling may be more effective for you than rehab.

**I am currently accepting new phone and video clients** Symptoms are not just painful annoyances, they are signs that point us to unfinished discovery and growth. Although I do offer a path to feeling better, staying better takes a commitment to engaging in deeper work beyond easy answers. This work is enlivening and opens out onto new ways of thinking and being. I specialize in supporting those struggling with depression, anger, anxiety, trauma, and grief, who are driven to understand and live further into their unique truth. For those interested, I also specialize in dream analysis, which can greatly accelerate one’s progress.

Anxiety and depression can make life very difficult. These symptoms only worsen if you hide them out of fear that others won’t understand or will be judgmental. It is important to know that there are specific treatment approaches that have been shown to be particularly effective. I use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Exposure with Response Prevention, and other Cognitive Behavioral approaches to help see thoughts and beliefs differently, and to act more in line with how we want to be. My approach also emphasizes a more accepting, compassionate relationship with one’s self to help therapy be most effective.
