Congratulations on talking the first steps toward recovery. Talking to a stranger about your challenges may seem awkward, but with the right therapist it becomes easier. Our work together will be unique since no single approach to therapy is best. Whatever the problem may be, taking this first crucial step is the start to placing you on the path you want to be in. I have personally traveled down this path before and have done my own personal work and transformation. This is why I respectfully feel I am in a position to guide you.

Life is complicated and seldom straightforward. We are often left facing challenges that are surprising and difficult to navigate. It may be a new role, a disappointment at work, a problem in a relationship, or some lasting echoes from the past that still show up, that causes us to feel anxious, angry, sad, confused and “stuck”. We try our best to manage by using coping strategies that turn out to be more problematic than helpful. We are then left thinking, what happened? Will I ever feel like my old self? Why can't I just get over this? If you are anxious, struggling to focus, overwhelmed by work or family, I am trained to help

My training, research and clinical work have been dedicated to working with and on behalf of older adults. Through my personal and professional experiences, I have become very familiar with the unique challenges that go along with aging - and the ways getting older can test a person’s mind, body, and spirit. I have also seen firsthand how therapy can help people find new ways of coping or reconnecting with strategies that have been helpful in the past. When effective, therapy can help people live more satisfying lives - even in the face of adversity.

People often search for a therapist when they feel like they've tried everything and it's just not working well enough. It can be hard to see a situation clearly when you've been immersed in it for so long. I help people to take a step back, so they can see things more objectively. Through psychotherapy, people can find internal strength and resources they didn't know were there. They can then start to see new perspectives, both of themselves and their situations, and can begin to make changes.

I believe change occurs in the context of our relationships, with our own self and with others. Oftentimes, when people seek out therapy, they are feeling lost, discarded, and may be filled with self-doubt and negative thoughts and feelings about themselves in the world. I work with clients to forge new ways of relating to ourselves and others to engage more fully in the world. We do this by learning a range of new skills and processing past experiences, but at its core, it is about connection with another human being and being seen, heard, understood, respected, and known.

Each of us has a unique combination of innate strengths and, yes, weaknesses. Psychotherapy - or counseling -- is a process of regaining and leveraging our strengths, shoring up deficiencies and effectively managing the challenges in our lives. Our ability to learn is another important gift we all possess. Psychotherapy allows the client to either learn, re-learn or even unlearn thoughts and behaviors which, in turn, leads to emotional well-being. Our emotions are important signals, but they need not become emergencies themselves.
