The therapeutic process leads one to adapt, transform, accept, and grow within oneself.
Feeling overwhelmed, lonely or down? Do you have a child or teen that is dysregulated, experiencing bullying, low self-esteem or aggression? Is your family going through transition? Having a safe place to talk and process your feelings can help. Many people aren’t sure how to find someone they can trust, or what to expect from therapy. I am committed to helping my clients find relief from cycles of emotional distress, improve their relationships and make lasting changes. I bring compassion, authenticity and a sense of humor to the therapeutic relationship.

As a practitioner of Jungian, depth, and psychodynamic psychotherapy, I specialize in supporting those who feel stuck, down, depressed, or anxious; those who are searching for purpose, calling, or meaning; and those who are interested in incorporating dreamwork into the therapeutic process. Often, when we find ourselves at a standstill or in a crisis, our potential for healing and transformation comes from the unconscious side of the psyche. Since 2014, I have specialized in supporting veterans as they seek to heal and transform after war and military service, as well as first responders in search of healing.

Others may require motivation for behavior change or support in a challenging season. Regardless of your particular circumstance and needs, we can work together to make your goals a reality.

*NOTE: I Currently Have a Waitlist* Utilizing systemic principles and effective methodology, I work with clients of all backgrounds, sexualities, genders, and relationship dynamics. Clients come to me to work on sexual and/or sociosexual concerns, including low desire, infidelity, lack of partnership skills, poor impulsivity control, coming out, inner shame, exploring new dynamics and/or kinks, and also for vaginal pain and erectile dysfunction.
My primary focus as a counselor is helping clients reach their highest potential. Sometimes clients come to me when they are lost and feeling unsure what their next steps need to be. Other times clients are aware what they want their path to be, they just need encouragement and accountability to get themselves there. No matter the reason a client is coming to counseling, I work towards being one of their biggest cheerleaders.
Are you working really hard at life without the outcomes you want? It can feel exhausting. Without the ability to effectively manage and cope with life's demands, a person's world can become a place filled with missed opportunities and experiences; a place of unrelenting anxiety, suffering and feelings of isolation. Change is hard and change is possibIe. It's about learning skills to do differently to live differently in a manner of your choosing. I'm a therapist who uses behavior-focused, outcome-driven treatments to address the symptoms of OCD, OCPD, PTSD, anorexia nervosa, anxiety and depression to increase quality in your life.

I focus my practice on working with two distinct populations; couples and elder care.

My positive strength based method uses a warm, safe, empowering and collaborative approach that is educational and nonjudgmental. Together lets break that toxic spiral of doubt, anxiety, sadness and resentment and build a solid foundation to a more true union.
The people I see often feel worried, confused, sad, angry, or struggle with similar feelings. Many have normal problems, such as loss of a loved one or troubled relationship. Some have major problems, such as depression, addiction, or abusive relationships. Regardless of the problem, the goal is to have a richer, more satisfying life. As well as listening with care, my style is to talk openly, sharing my thoughts and feelings about your situation. I bring a lifetime of success and failure, joys and sorrows, to my work. Born in 1947, I am semi-retired with a part-time practice.
I enjoy working with people in a safe and supportive atmosphere where
a person can open to who they really are, and discover strengths and solutions that they never knew were possible.
I feel that my client and I can figure out more together than either one of us could have separately. I believe that human beings are self-healing, and it is thrilling to me to use my knowledge and experience to enliven the healing process.
I work with people who are struggling with anxiety, depression, past traumatic experiences, or challenging life changes.
