Or your relationships may be causing you grief. There may also be an empty feeling or niggling fears under the surface. Even if you are accustomed to solving things yourself, this may be the time to reach out for help from a professional who specializes in working with high-functioning clients like yourself.

Unlike psychiatry where medication is prescribed to block your feelings from being experienced, my practice is designed to make sense and make use of the sensations we are receiving from ourselves. Professionally directing our attention to discomfort puts us in contact with the core of our conflict(s) and sets forth a personal resolution.

Are you feeling stuck in relationships, jobs, or entrenched beliefs about yourself that may not be valid? Unhealthy thoughts, feelings, behaviors and attachments can create patterns that lead to anxiety, depression, addiction and more. The definition of insanity is “doing the same thing over and over, expecting different results.” If you want to break the cycle, therapy can be a powerful tool in helping you identify problem areas and begin your personal transformation. The process begins with having someone who will listen, understand your needs, uncover stressors and seek solutions.

People come to me for many reasons. Some are experiencing a crisis, a transition, or are feeling stuck and seek a more satisfying way forward. I work to create a non-judgmental environment so that whatever parts of your story that need attention can be effectively explored. I use an active, engaged style. The goal is to find more effective ways of interacting with yourself and others. We look closely at how the symptoms you carry (e.g., depression, anxiety, addictive behaviors) maintain themselves despite your wish to be free of them. I use the therapeutic relationship to understand what gets in your way interpersonally.

I enjoy working with married people and single people, gay people and straight people, men and women, therapy beginners and treatment seasoned soldiers. It is hard to narrow down to a "type" as I have experience with a broad array of people and presenting issues. That said, I do seem to connect especially well with creative people: actors, writers, producers, etc. The most important aspect of your relationship with your therapist is chemistry and that is tricky to predict from the reading of a profile. Better to call me or meet in person so we can see about the match.

Therapy during Corona... Life is completely upside-down right now. You have no idea what's happening today, let alone what will happen in a month or two or six. Anxiety is mounting around the shape of your career, the health of your loved ones, and who you will become as the world changes. On paper, You've got this great life. You're accomplished, driven, and people seem to admire what you've got. But on the inside, something's missing...you've never felt good enough, and your inner-voice is a constant reminder. Now, more than ever, you feel unfulfilled - Like an impostor. It's time to feel complete...It's time for a change!

Change is constant. Whether with work, personal relationships, or society in general, everything is always changing, evolving - moving forward. Sometimes the tools or thoughts we use to cope with the ever-changing situations are out dated and leave us feeling frustrated, fearful, or even overwhelmed. In recognizing this, it is time to update our thoughts and coping skills so we can move forward and grow away from fears, low self esteem, or "stuck" feelings. Hypnosis is a safe, effective Holistic tool, with a positive approach to overcoming the fears/challenges holding you back from the success you desire and deserve.
