"If the only tool you have in life is a hammer, everything looks like a nail!" Therapy is not for "weak" and "sick" people, but can be an excellent way to fill your "tool box," with skills to improve relationships, communicate more effectively, manage stress, emotions, and challenging life transitions. Therapy provides a safe, supportive, non-judgmental space in which you can develop skills, insights, and inspirations, leaving you to feel more empowered in many areas of your life. My training comes from 15+ years of experience in hospitals, treatment programs, correctional facilities, and private practice.

I am devoted to growing and developing throughout life. There is always the possibility of bringing inner change to our lives. Moments occur in us when we experience a certainty that we need to change, and we are compelled to know about the deeper meaning of our lives. These are transformative moments that give depth and meaning to our lives.How can we cultivate deep caring for ourselves? I work collaboratively and synthesize the ideas of contemporary relational psychoanalysis and attachment theory in order to process experience and develop new and more meaningful and joyful patterns of life and relationship.

We are living in very stressful times that challenge us to find meaning. Often the very painful issues that bring people to therapy -- anxiety and/or depression, difficulty with relationships, life-cycle transitions, trauma, illness, aging, lack of purpose and belonging -- present a wonderful opportunity for exploration, growth, and development. I especially enjoy working with individuals in transition, whether in early adulthood, mid-life, or the "third chapter" of older age and have a special place in my heart for those who struggle with feelings of not fitting in, living non-traditional lives or in non-traditional relationships.
