I work with adults of any age, and have specialized training/experience with families and with children/adolescents, including play therapy for pre-school and young children. My clients find relief from painful symptoms (e.g., depression, anxiety); address troublesome behavioral problems (e.g., anger management; school/work performance); improve family/ interpersonal relationships; and access greater creative and spiritual potential to fulfill life goals. I work with many clients who have been exposed to trauma, violence , abuse , or loss, and with adoptive and foster children/families. My clients often address issues of ethnic, cultural or sexual identity, and challenging life transitions.

I am trained in working with a large number of psychological issues, including substance abuse and personality disorders, across all demographics and ages.
Because no two patients are alike, therapy should be tailored to each patient, rather than trying to treat everyone with the same theoretical approach. I believe that a therapist’s job is to guide the patient as they learn to change the behaviors and thinking styles that may have once been helpful, but are now getting in their way. Most importantly, I believe it is a therapist's job to teach their patients the skills necessary to eventually function independent of their therapist, allowing them to eventually leave therapy instead of being stuck with having weekly sessions for the rest of their lives!

My clients often struggle with issues that include anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, co-dependency, substance abuse , work related issues, life transitions. One of my passions is working with adults - partners, parents, ACOA's - who live with anxiety & frustration over a loved one's alcoholism/addiction.

Welcome to my practice. I look forward to getting to know you and hearing about what's troubling you, while you get a sense of what it will be like working with me.

We'll look at treatment options and agree on a plan, which may include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), insight-oriented psychotherapy, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, or couples therapy, as indicated by your particular problem.

I work with clients struggling with issues including depression, difficult life transitions, past sexual abuse or trauma, self esteem, and relationship issues.
Therapy is collaborative. I work closely with you to understand and explore the relationship between thoughts, feelings, and your behaviors because small changes in one area can lead to significant changes in other areas. Together we will identify and challenge unproductive thoughts and behaviors to bring about improved mood and a greater sense of well-being. I draw from a variety of therapeutic approaches to meet your individual needs and help you achieve your goals. I provide support and practical help so you can address current life challenges and long-standing issues.

I believe that psychotherapy is very useful in connecting deeply with oneself and subsequently with others. Anxiety and depression are often related to faulty coping mechanisms developed in childhood that lead to painful relationships. Being happy in work and love are the pillars of a rewarding and fulfilled life and therapy makes this possible.

When I see a new patient for the first time, I try to assess what he or she wants from life or from what each person is struggling. I do this with individuals or parents so together so we can determine what is best for him or her or their child at the current time. Sometimes people want to work on one problem and then develop a curiosity about how their minds work. Often in those situations, I work more intensely and more frequency to search for what is meaning to people and how they wants to navigate in the world in a freer way.

Domestic Abuse Therapists
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.
