The decision to pursue counseling is an extremely important and personal one. And, finding the right therapist is a crucial part of the process. I have been practicing in the field for 25 years and have worked in a variety of settings with adults and adolescents. In addition to having extensive experience in helping those who have suffered grief and loss, I am particularly skilled at working with highly sensitive individuals who are struggling with anxiety, depression, life transitions, interpersonal relationships, developmental issues, and identifying, understanding, and changing repetitive patterns that do not serve them.

Out cultural institutions do not prepare us for the diversity of experience we face as adults. Conformity to outdated rules of thinking and acting do not work in situations that invite flexibility and adaptiveness. Rigid thinking patterns are maladaptive and lead to frustration, stress, and depression. We are led to believe we "should" be able to solve problems through mastery of our behavior and feelings, but it's just that demand to control things that leads to a identity. confusion. Therapy is not education: I don't work from a lesson plan that has all the right answers. We will work your story 'till it makes sense.

I believe that every individual is unique, therefore, no single type of therapy will be effective for everyone. That is why I evaluate each person's specific needs and personality before selecting the most appropriate form of treatment. This approach is called Prescriptive Eclectic Therapy and it draws on theories and techniques from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Self Psychology, Gestalt Therapy, Hypnotherapy and many others. This therapy can be brief or long-term, depending on your specific needs and goals. However, in many cases, therapy can be effective in just a few months.
