Finding the right ‘person’ for yourself or a loved one can be beyond challenging. You want to know that that person will be truly engaged in what you have to say, won’t judge you by your thoughts or behaviors, and care enough about you to offer compassion and guidance through your toughest days. I’m familiar with this search, and I believe that I could be the person you need right now as you begin the work to your higher self. One of the first things I tell all of my clients is that they have to feel a connection with their therapist. You have to feel safe, supported and most importantly, respected.
Not currently accepting new clients. I have been a psychotherapist for over 25 years, working with men, women, adolescents, couples and groups. I view psychotherapy as a collaborative process between client and therapist. As a therapist I try to see the world through the eyes of my clients and accommodate the therapy to their particular needs. First we try to understand the problems that have brought the client into therapy, and we gradually put into practice ways to alleviate them. Unhappiness may take the form of depression, anxiety, panic, life change adjustment, recovery, guilt, grief, or relationship problems.
How might one live? That's the question we all wake up to, each morning. Whether we have the time to think about it or not. That being said, are you satisfied with your current path? Or do you want something different? Something more? Psychotherapy is a great place to explore this and other questions.

There's a sense of disconnection leading you to act in ways that feel inauthentic. Relationships drain all of your energy and you've noticed this pattern repeating itself. You give so much to others only to realize that they’re not emotionally available for you. You're often dismissed and never seem to be anyone's priority. When you think about "healthy relationships" you know it's something you want but you're not really sure what it means or how to get there.
Different life stages and transitions come with their own unique challenges. Change is a part of life and how we react and meet these changes has a direct impact on our overall well being. Past experiences also influence our reactions. These challenges may make us feel overwhelmed or as if we may be “stuck". Sometimes assistance is needed in helping identify these feelings and stressors so that steps towards healthy responses and reactions can occur. My goal for providing counseling is to provide a safe and nurturing environment where clients can look at both short term and long standing issues and address how to best manage them.

I will offer empathy, validation, and a collaborative approach to each session. I am honored by the courage that each client has shown me in sharing their story and struggles. Life can bring us joy and pain- both are okay.
