Psychotherapy offers an opportunity for getting more of what you want from life. Whether you are considering psychotherapy for the first time or returning after time away, I commend you for taking this step toward self-growth. During my 20 years in the mental health field and as a clinical psychologist, I've worked with a broad range of people and find the work deeply rewarding. Some issues people bring to treatment include: facing problematic patterns in life and work, loneliness and low self-esteem, perfectionism, relationship difficulties, family conflict, trauma, divorce and separation, depression and anxiety, difficulty meeting goals.

At the core of relational distress are many strong or big emotions that need to be felt, witnessed, validated, and sorted by both parties. My strength is working through complex problems with enthusiasm, patience, compassion, balance, and without being one-sided or biased. This is a tall order for most, but I have experienced a great deal of success helping couples do just that because I love my work. People ask if I can tell if they should give up or call it quits. I say it will take two to start over and to keep trying, but I only need one hero at any one time in a relationship to right the wrongs.

Therapy is about self-exploration and growing forward with intention. Whether you want to improve your communication with others, learn how to cope with stress or any other mental injury that's weighing you down. Many times, feeling heard and being able to reflect can give you the space you need to make decisions about your life. You have to start where you are.
I adhere to the philosophy that relationships are at the core of the human experience, yet there are times when healing can't be done alone. My work is fundamentally relational. I help people overcome trauma, anxiety, depression, and relationship issues, with an understanding that these issues can overlap or involve additional problems impacting other areas of life. I am warm, relatable, active, and flexible, balancing exploratory work with directness. I have over 15 years of experience with a diverse body of clients. I divide my time between clinical work, teaching, and research.

With the right help you will find that profound change is possible and that you can be free of this weight on top of you.
