I specialized in treating trauma and during my military career, I treated individuals with combat trauma, sexual abuse , and childhood abuse.
When feelings of irritability, fear, worry, anger, sadness, isolation, and emotional ups and downs become overwhelming, it can interfere with your ability to engage at work, at home, and in your relationships. Sometimes, there are deeper issues underneath. Sometimes, there are even events in your past that are impacting your ability to move forward. But you can make it through. In therapy with me, you will experience a safe and comfortable environment to work through these issues together to develop strength in the face of difficulty. Restoration, renewal, and resilience are possible.

I have been working with children, adolescents and adults for over 35 years, using a mind-body approach to help people understand and resolve their concerns, and live their lives to the fullest. I specialize in trauma, including medically related, emotional, physical and sexual abuse and those difficult to manage situations that continue to haunt us despite our best efforts.I also specialize in eating disorders.

People settle, for things in their lives they don’t really like, that they feel powerless to change. I work with both the conscious and unconscious aspects, sometimes indirectly, in ways that engender changes on both of these levels. I enable and empower my clients to open up to new directions and possibilities, to new ways of feeling, doing, and being.

You may be on the fence about therapy because you were able to manage on your own before. Things that used to be simple have become increasingly more difficult, and you are frustrated with yourself. You know you are capable of more than what you are accomplishing now, but you feel stuck. Perhaps you can trace your fears to a specific event, when something challenging or traumatic interrupted your life--or perhaps they came on gradually. You have tried to ignore it and keep going, but the thoughts and feelings keep coming back. You may be experiencing anxiety, panic, depression, intrusive memories, or difficulty in relationships.

I specialize in sex and internet pornography addiction. I work one-on-one with men and women, with those attracted to minors, and with couples. My primary treatment goal is to help the sexually addicted individual overcome the addiction and find inner healing. Additionally, I work to promote healing within badly damaged intimate relationships. Initially, I aim to help clients gain immediate relief from the feelings of overwhelm and distress that brought them to counseling to begin with. Subsequently, my primary treatment goal is to collaborate with clients to heal the deeper sources and causes of their suffering and addiction.

Welcome! I specialize in working with adults who experience persistent anxiety, relationship concerns, trauma, family conflict, multicultural issues, and life transitions. More specifically, I support clients with challenges around mood, assertiveness, self-esteem, boundary-setting, “people pleasing”, frequent guilt, neglect, or sense of obligation to others. I work especially well with those who have experienced unhealthy relationship dynamics, such as emotional abuse or manipulation. My background as a first-generation Greek-American has also contributed to my knowledge of and interest in cross-cultural concerns.

In our day to day lives, it can be difficult to notice changes in our mood, behavior or relationships and how that shift may be affecting our overall well-being. These changes can be caused by various stressors in our lives. As a therapist, I bring a genuine sense of compassion for the difficulties my clients face, placing great emphasis on building meaningful relationships, transparency, and authenticity. My integrated approach to care utilizes aspects of cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, and mindfulness techniques to work towards a patient centered conceptualization of health.
