Are you anxious or depressed? Is anxiety or depression interfering with your life? Anxiety and depression can be paralyzing and may prevent you from living the kind of life that you seek. Typical coping strategies may provide limited but not lasting relief. I can help you to identify, modify, eliminate or manage the behaviors and beliefs that fuel anxiety and mood disorders.

“I don't feel cared for.” “When I bring up the ‘hard stuff,’ I’m met with silence." “Whatever I give is never enough.” “Why do I feel so alone?” “We keep having the same fights.” “I just want to be heard.” If these statements resonate with you, I'm glad you've landed on my page! Navigating these struggles alone can be overwhelming. In couples therapy, I can offer effective and compassionate help for your relationship, tailored to meet the needs of your situation. Working together, we can develop the skills you need to move away from a cycle of conflict and frustration and move towards greater connection, communication, and intimacy.

Are you questioning whether you are "doing the right thing" for yourself and others? Do you have trouble saying "no", and then if you do say "no", you feel really guilty? Feeling super stressed about the world, your job, relationships/friendships, family, money, the fact that you haven't replied to that email from your boss yet, that you're almost out of cat food, the polar bears, and so on? If so, I am so glad you are here, taking the steps to better your mental health and well-being! Life is incredibly stressful, and sometimes we need some extra support to help us get through it.

Whether you are newly diagnosed or have been living with an illness for a while, you’ve been trying to hold on and find a way to live the best you can. Every day is a battle because your body feels sick from aches, pains or other symptoms. You even brace yourself for the worst to happen, because that’s unfortunately been your “new norm.” You miss being your old self - the one that could “do more things." Now, you feel like a failure in many areas of your life. The smile you wear covers what you really feel – alone, worried, sad and angry. All of this has taken a toll on you emotionally and you want to feel more in control of it.

I work with adults and couples with depression, anxiety, loss and grief, relationship problems, and other difficulties. My training is in intensive short-term dynamic psychotherapy (ISTDP). This therapy allows for rapid identification of problem areas and focuses on emotional healing. This process helps clients rapidly clarify what is not working and enables change of destructive emotional patterns. Then the way is clear to adopt new, more effective life skills.
