**IMMEDIATE AVAILABILITY - call today!** Has life become too much? Are you feeling overwhelmed? Maybe you are so numb that you can't figure out what you feel. Do you feel alone, like nobody understands you? Do you engage in behaviors that are having negative impacts on you and your relationships but can't seem to stop? Has life left you feeling worthless and unloveable? Research shows that mental illness affects tens of millions of people each year (NIMH), that the presence of ADHD and autism are rising (National Center for Health Statistics), and that only half of people with mental illnesses actually receive treatment (NIMH).

I provide a specialty therapy for people with a high degree of self-control (perfectionists, introverts, worriers, and the notably stubborn). Can you have too much of a good thing? It turns out possessing too much self-control impairs our ability to relax, adapt to change, and connect to others. Humans have a fundamental need for fun and belonging, without it, we’re naturally depressed and anxious.

Stuck. Trapped. Controlling. Anxious. Over it. Apathetic. Do you find yourself resonating with these words? Maybe you feel yourself enraged at little things your partner or kids do, and then hating yourself after you snap. Perhaps you used to get excited about a weekend brunch, meeting a friend for a coffee, or strolling Target alone - but now you only feel apathetic and empty. What if you could find your spark again? Does that sound possible? Maybe going back to where you used to be isn’t even your goal: maybe your goal is the ability to be present, without nagging anxieties and crippling depression. Either way, therapy can help.

Everyone we encounter in our lives plays a part in our story. Each experience leads to decisions that develop who we are. Sometimes we come to an encounter or experience that we aren't sure how to interpret, or work through. When we experience mental health symptoms or life stress that impairs our functioning, it is important to seek, learn, and utilize skills to get back to functioning that helps us achieve our goals.

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.

Being a parent is a joy like none other. This may however become challenging if your child (especially a teenager) battles emotional, behavioral, eating disorders, lack of confidence or addiction problems. Teenagers with these issues often argue, have hard time expressing emotions, have disruptive behavior, sudden change in eating habits and conscious of their body image. They might resort to use of alcohol or other drugs to escape struggles. This does not mean you are a bad parent; it is just a difficult time for your family. You just need someone to walk you through during this difficult time.

I am a seasoned clinician who, for over 35 years, has empowered clients to lead more meaningful and productive lives. If you suffer from anxiety, trauma, or depression, or if you find interpersonal relationships to be challenging and unsatisfying, talking with an experienced psychotherapist can drastically improve the quality of your life. Therapy is an opportunity to gain insight into the workings of your mind, to better understand how your internal reality shapes your external one (and vice versa). If some introspection has opened you to the possibility of therapy, the chances are already very good that you would benefit from it.

Everyone experiences stress in their lives. Sometimes this is temporary and manageable, sometimes overwhelming. When things seem too difficult to handle alone, counseling can help. When I work with people, I see them as partners in their care. Old habits of thinking and reacting to situations in life can seem difficult to overcome. Together we discover what seems to be the source of the problems, explore what has worked and not worked so far, and find new ways of dealing with what is causing emotional pain. I sometimes suggest ways to practice new responses or behaviors between meetings.
