We want peace of mind. We want to be successful in our endeavors. We want to speak freely and be heard. We want to have pleasant relationships with friends and family . We want to live healthy, fulfilling lives. At times, these simple goals feel so far away! In our complex lives there are many things that interfere with our goals being realized. Some of those barriers are internal and some of them are created by others. Counseling can help to identify, prioritize and work towards minimizing or extinguishing the barriers. Therapist: someone who is on YOUR team, listening without judging, telling you the truth and helping you win.

Facing life challenges can be strenuous for all of us, and we may not know which way to turn for help. At times, we reach out to our own family and friends for help, but that is not always supportive. Who can we turn to then, to help us understand and navigate through these emotionally difficult times? I'm driven by my passion to bring overall wellness and hope to my clients, by providing a safe, non-judgmental and empathetic environment. I will work collaboratively with my clients, to help strengthen relationships and facilitate growth.

I can support the adoptees integration into their family while examining and understanding their past circumstances.
I believe that the power of therapy comes through the understanding of how self defeating patterns of behavior interfere with our ability to have a happy and productive life. I believe that focusing and building on our strengths will enhance our functioning. Examining our behavior is critical to developing healthy options for ourselves and in our relationships. Through an open and respectful process we will examine the areas in your life that have interfered with your ability to make positive, forward thinking choices. As you develop different coping strategies the hope of change will support healing and growth.

Our lives are complicated and often stressful, necessitating juggling multiple roles, responsibilities and internal as well as external conflicts. Clients may be dealing with so many challenges, including depression, anxiety, eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia, binge-eating), relationship problems, career uncertainty, family conflicts. Whatever the issue, the important factor is the willingness to face it and bring energy to working on it. The work we do in psychotherapy is both nurturing and stretching and opens the door to the possibility of growth and change .

I do individual therapy, as well as family and couples counseling.
I emphasize a collaborative approach to therapy--I bring 24 years of clinical experience, as well as enthusiasm, hope, and a dose of humor, and ask only that you bring an openness to change. Together, we identify specific life goals and generate plans to achieve them. Ultimately, you will come to understand that you make perfect sense; you may just not have been able to use this self-awareness to make the most productive decisions. My strong suit is quickly identifying underlying problems and patterns, as well as personal strengths and resources, and from there we chart your personal path.
