I am a philosophical counselor who has been in private practice for over 23 years. I do not diagnose mental illnesses, nor do I prescribe medication. What I can do is help you with a wide range of issues that we all deal with: relationships, jobs, moral dilemmas, personal identity, love, difficult choices, transitions, addictions, self-care, spiritual/metaphysical questions, questions surrounding the exigencies of everyday living. A conversation is a good way to help you develop your own voice, your own inner resolve and sense of self. The 2,500 history of philosophy can provide invaluable insights as you journey through life.

Areas of special interest or experience include: anxiety, depression, gay and lesbian issues, women's issues including fertility and parenting, men's issues, veterans (trauma, PTSD), grief/loss, life transition, sexuality, attachment, adoption, marriage/ couples , premarital work.
When the challenges of life and relationship present you with complex dilemmas and create painful or uncomfortable symptoms, therapy offers an opportunity for healing and long-lasting psychological change. The power of therapy is in the way it expands your choice in behaviors or ways of seeing others, yourself and your life circumstances. Through a compassionate journey of self-exploration I will help you work toward a fuller understanding of yourself which will lead to greater choice in how you live, love, work and play. It is a privilege to join you on your journey of self-discovery and healing.

I enjoy helping with clients wrestling with depression, anxiety, fear, irritability or anger, and grief, as well as relationships with self and others (including couples ).
We live in a culture that sometimes stigmatizes our decisions to seek counseling — it’s as if our drive to reduce our suffering is, somehow, a sign of weakness. May I suggest that the exact opposite is true? Not only is it heroic to stop distracting and running away from ourselves, but a genuine act of love and self-respect. May our work together be a framework from which all concerned, myself included, emerge as kinder and more authentic sentient beings.

I see individuals, from teen years on up, couples and families.
The frustration, concern and irritation with you child has become your constant companion. You take it wherever you go. If you are not acting on these feelings toward your child you are targeting it at yourself, your partner or even your friends. It creeps up on you and causes you to not feel like yourself. If only your child would listen, follow your suggestions, or understand what you are trying to say! Deep down you feel scared and unheard.

Individual aside, I also specialize in helping couples with communication issues and rebuild common goals in life.
Life is hard and unpredictable, and we all have struggles within ourselves, with relationships, and with directions in life. As a result, we may experience anxiety, depression, lack of motivation, or simply feeling lost. The recognition of our shared human condition is what motivated me to become a counselor. I bring a wealth of life and professional experiences to the counseling practice with a 20-year career in biotech and business. I believe my life experiences as a parent and professional afford me the broad perspectives to connect with clients and to facilitate personal growth.

I enjoy fostering healthy exploration for adults, adolescents, and couples processing issues of differentiation, self-esteem, anxiety, family of origin, relational health, spirituality, and more.
I approach counseling with the belief that I encounter every client in the middle of a story. Within these stories, individuals are influenced by their relational contexts and histories––therefore, what they have been through is worth exploring. At the same time, I believe all are active agents in their present and future––I seek to empower clients toward change while fostering awareness of what has shaped them. In the context of safety, individuals are able to begin embracing agency and taking new risks which might otherwise feel inaccessible or overwhelming. Through these new risks, freedom and growth is possible.

I welcome clients from diverse ages and backgrounds, including children through play therapy, teens, adults, and couples .
Struggling relationships, difficult transitions, and heavy losses can feel exhausting, confusing, burdensome, and at times, unbearable. Sometimes, we need a safe and confidential space where we feel supported, understood, and can learn to move forward. I approach counseling with the belief that you possess innate dignity and worth, and it’s my priority to help you feel heard and valued as you tell your story and share your struggles. As we engage with the experiences that have brought you here, I believe that hope and growth await you, and it is possible to live your life in the ways that you long for.

Your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors are valuable clues in learning how to challenge yourself to change. Sometimes we notice frustration or conflict before we feel the emotions of hurt, anxiousness, disappointment or a sense of loss within ourselves or our relationships. Learning to find yourself, and/or create a more positive relationship with your partner may be a goal you’ve been striving for and feeling like you just can’t get there after multiple tries. We weren't made to figure out the challenges of life alone. Your needs are important and working together to find the “aha” moments to be ready for change are possible.

What type of Salem mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Salem?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
