Dealing with life while trying to figure out who you really are, what you want, and how to get there can be overwhelming. This may feel familiar if you’re a college student, a new/young professional, or just trying to figure out adulting. Nothing is working, and you're out of shit to try (and you’ve tried it all). Your thoughts and feelings are often quite painful. Maybe you wonder if you're broken inside because of what you’ve been through- things you’ve been afraid to talk about, for fear of being judged or misunderstood. At the end of the day, you aren’t who you want to be or where you want to be in your life, and you feel stuck.

Your decision to engage in counseling is to be appreciated and honored as it often involves courage, commitment, vulnerability, and a willingness to change. It is important that you feel heard, understood, and accepted for who you are and what you have already experienced. I view my role as giving you the support, safety, caring, and respect you deserve while facilitating you doing that for yourself. I will also provide cognitive, emotional, and behavioral models, "tools" and experiences to enhance your self-awareness, self-expression, and self-care; and help you learn to trust in your basic goodness and wisdom.

I am best suited for clients who are ready to work on improving their quality of life. Sometimes we need to address the past, or the present, or our worries about the future. Maybe we are supporting young humans in growing and need some direction for the best ways to set limits and communicate. Regardless of the issue, therapy is a valuable experience and a great weapon to have in tackling both the large and small issues that come up in life.

Accepting New Clients! Everyone goes through hard times. Whether this is your first time, or it feels like it has been a lifetime. I specialize in helping adults who have found mental health, substance use, or trauma (often a combination of these things) to be sources of distress and suffering. I come from a place of understanding, not judgment. Being able to feel safe, heard and understood are such important parts of changing. I partner with you to create the goals you want to see come from our work together, and use evidenced based methods to help you move forward in those directions.

Accepting New Clients. Life can sometimes be overwhelming and we just don’t know how to move forward. Therapy provides a safe, supportive place to regroup, experience nonjudgmental support, and take back the control you have been searching for. While talking to someone can be uncomfortable and sometimes daunting, finding the right therapist that can guide and encourage you will help make lasting transformation in your life.

MY APPROACH TO HELPING: I see life as a journey. Sometimes we get in a rut and have difficulty getting out, or sometimes we think we are on the right road and things turn out differently than expected, leaving us devastated and not knowing how or what to change. At times, we are unaware of our repeated patterns or how early life experiences have affected us. We usually do the best we can with what skills we have at the time. Sometimes, we have to change our skill set and develop strategies and skills that will help us be happier and more functional people. Life is a journey, take it one step at a time. Accepting new Clients.

I currently am not taking new clients. We all, at times, can benefit from walking with a special companion on this journey; someone who is not part of our everyday life, who has skills and experience to bring us insight and comfort. Sometimes our families, friends, or coworkers don't feel like a safe place to turn. My desire is to provide a space for understanding, healing, and hope so that you can begin to experience more fully, who you are and the beauty of your story. I see adults that struggle with anxiety, depression and life transitions challenges.

In my work with mothers, I see many women and birthing people who are navigating perinatal mood and anxiety issues (PMADs), perinatal loss (miscarriage), fertility challenges, and traumatic birthing experiences. In addition to providing support for perinatal mental health, I see adolescents and adults who may be experiencing creative blocks, low self-worth, anxiety, and/or grief.

ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS (Telehealth - available) Discussing personal challenges can often be difficult. The fact is that "life can be difficult", and there are times we all requre help "aligning our compass". Finding a therapist can be an important step in one's search for a "life worth living". For 10 years I have worked to develop compassion and empathy in assisting individuals and the families that have solicited my support in meeting the challenges and stressful situations that seems to be an unavoidable part of life.

I enjoy working with clients who actively participate in their therapy. It is important to be ready to enter into therapy. The focus of therapy is on you not the others in your life - for after all you cannot change other people but rather the only person you can change is yourself. I can help you make the changes you want to make. Want to survive a trauma, stay sober, lose weight, interact better with others, recover from a loss, examine a troubled intimacy? This is what I do.

*NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS* Struggling within yourself, or in relationship to a partner, child, friend, or family member can leave you exhausted. Finding answers to questions about what to do next, who to trust, and how to manage the resulting anger, sadness, guilt, or loneliness consumes your energy. You wonder if anyone truly understands and can help you make sense of it so you can build a life you love. Helping people feel at ease to make concrete, powerful change is my strength. I can help you find your way through the struggle toward resolution and relief while finding your stronger, more confident self.

My ideal client is one who is interested in finding happiness in love, work and community. My joy during my 30 years in practice is to experience, with individuals and couples, their growth towards these goals. Years in private practice and a major medical setting in New York have given me a broad background in helping people cope with the many challenges life hands them and to help them regain their feelings of hope. Additional focus is placed on life transitions including divorce, retirement, and bereavement. Additionally, I offer guidance in helping your children and teens navigate those challenging years.

*Not accepting new clients at this time.* I work with couples and individuals and support relationship concerns, trauma, depression, anxiety, etc. I have found effective growth and change is rooted in a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship. In my holistic approach, I evaluate and challenge the mind, body and emotions. This provides external skills and internal growth that makes for lasting effects in relationship and within self. I truly believe that people are resilient. When someone is motivated to change, given the opportunity to be understood, validated and compassionately challenged, they can meet their therapy goals.

My approach is rooted in the experience and belief that we have the answers within. I want my clients to not only survive addiction, eating disorders, and anxiety, but to thrive and love their life. My clients are often incredibly intelligent, creative, and driven. I have seen my clients accomplish amazing things when they get clear on their goals and apply their gifts toward a fulfilling life. My goal is to help you get beneath the layers of labels and get down to your core. Much of our work focuses on aligning your decisions and actions with your own truth.

I believe that everyone has the capacity for strong, healthy relationships, and though we sometimes stumble and fall or simply "get stuck" in our personal journey or in relationship with our partners, we can pick ourselves up, brush off the dust, and continue on with love and joy. My work with couples is focused on helping them find their way through the rough patches-helping them ease their loneliness by finding strength in each other...together.
