Your relationships can become more intimate as you develop clarity about your needs and have courage to be vulnerable with those you trust. I offer referrals for compulsive porn use, as this is beyond my scope of practice

Compassion and safety, metaphors and stories, laughter and creativity, brainstorming and education are some of the tools I will combine to help you feel understood, heal, and then grow. I will adjust my style to what I sense you need as a whole person: body, mind, and spirit. I frame my work in psychodynamic theory, while using cognitive-behavioral and experiential techniques. I infuse all sessions with the principles of mindfulness. I can help you organize your thoughts on difficult decisions, coach you to be more assertive, and help you establish better boundaries. I will teach you a variety of coping skills for managing stress.

Significant loss, sadness or anxiety can impact our functioning at any point in our lives. A good therapeutic relationship can offer support and clarity. Emotions can seem overwhelming, but having a safe place to process them can be life-changing. Holding emotions alone can create an internal experience of overwhelm, but a connection with a therapist can lessen the feelings of isolation, anxiety, depression and/or stress.

I'm currently full and not taking new clients. Couples, families, individuals. I hope to help couples regain the closeness that you felt when you were first together. I hope to help families to resolve conflict and find new ways to be together in a way that brings the family closer together. I hope to help adults to resolve personal difficulties and to work through the barriers that keep you from having the kind of life that you want. I also hope to help children in foster care and adoptive homes be able to feel accepted and welcome parts of their new families.

Life is not always an easy road to navigate and sometimes we need a guide to help us find our way again. In my work I enjoy helping my clients heal the blocks to the true authentic Self. Our fears, wounds, self-criticisms and identity issues are not who we are, but we must resolve them before we can live the life that is waiting to be ours.

I find that a client is best served when they are listened to, validated, but also challenged to make positive change. That is why I take a cognitive behavioral approach to the counseling I do. Whether the client is a child or adult we all have the ability to learn from the past and make different choices for the future.

I personally want to welcome you in taking the first steps to bettering your life and well being! My goal in therapy is to help and assist being the best YOU—whatever that means. Therapy requires you to give and take, and the more you are open and honest about your strengths, as well as your struggles, the more meaningful the process will be. My goal is for you to not only feel a reduction of negative thoughts, feelings, and behaviors; but to also find the “silver linings”, the little moments of comfort and hope throughout your therapeutic experience!

Are you feeling trapped and consumed by anxiety, disordered eating, or poor self esteem? I am a warm, compassionate and non-judgmental therapist who can help you take charge of your life again. I would feel privileged to provide you with a safe space and useful coping tools in a comfortable therapeutic setting.

I offer consulting for parents to learn collaborative parenting (married or divorced). With over 37 years of clinical experience, I'm also a parenting specialist, helping parents to understand their children's behavior & needs. As a divorce mediator, my approach is child-centered. As parents struggle to meet their children's needs at a time of heightened tension, they need support and guidance. They must navigate a difficult grieving process, while they learn to transform their relationship from marital partners to business partners, sharing the "business" of raising their children together to ensure everyone thrives.

TRUST Peer reviewed articles published in recent years regarding and quantifying the importance of trust between a client and his or her mental health clinician indicate that the professional’s education or credentials have less to do with positive therapeutic outcomes than trust between the client and clinician. Finding a clinician you might trust can be a time consuming proposition. However, a relatively quick and totally free phone call may give you an initial indication of whether the professional on the other end of the phone may be suited to help you with the present difficult situation at hand.

Finding a therapist with whom you can talk honestly--one who can help you find the words to explain your feelings--can be life-changing. Creating a trusted relationship with a therapist can be the first step in developing the tools to live a life that feels richer and more authentic.

Having started working as a therapist 15 years ago, I continue to feel grateful to join clients on their pathway to healing. I believe that a relaxed, interactive, nonjudgmental, and empathic style leads to the most successful therapeutic outcomes. I often use a mix of cognitive behavioral therapy, EMDR, insight oriented therapy, and psychodynamic concepts. I find that a collaborative, team approach focused on solutions to the pain or discomfort in the "here and now" encourages emotional growth. I work with individuals 18 and older.
