How does your need for certainty play out? Does it force you to try to predict? Does it persuade you to declare things that you don't actually know? Perhaps the need for certainty is powerful enough to rob you of genuine moments with loved ones or with yourself. Research finds that people who take risks (those who step into the unknown) are happier than those who merely reach for reward or gratification. Why? Because healthy risk-taking has rewards sewn into the experience when we authentically try. It builds skills in self-advocacy, self-love and self-worth.

I work with children & teens who have experienced abuse, neglect, and DV. I also see adults suffering from a variety of mental health issues. Many kids come from single-parent homes and have never known or seen their father. Many are depressed, anxious, oppositional, suicidal, and engaging in self-harm behaviors. I've worked in the "trenches" in Residential Treatment Centers for teens on probation, in the public schools, and currently in an outpatient setting for the Department of Mental Health. My approach is primarily psychodynamic, but also using play therapy, cognitive based interventions and behavioral modification skills.

I work primarily from a psychodynamic and interpersonal perspective as research supports my experience that therapy is more successful as a creative partnership, and a collaborative insight-oriented process leads to deeper and lasting growth and change. I have helped many clients to recover from the impacts of trauma and loss, and to reduce the accompanying symptoms of anxiety, depression, and addiction. This process can be challenging, but also leads to renewed life purpose, connection, and empowerment.

In times like these you need coping skills and someone to talk through the difficult thoughts and feelings that are coming up. This situation is having an impact on everyone, for some it is bringing up traumatic memories of the past, for others relationships with their loved ones are becoming strained.

It's difficult to be in this world. You want to be considerate and kind; you also want to fulfill your potential. Were you were raised with a lot of "shoulds"? Were you told to control or ignore your feelings? Are there issues with anger? Yours or anger from loved ones? Anger can lead to feelings of shame. But finding the feelings beneath the anger, you can accept and love yourself. And that can change your life.
