As a practical, interactive, solution-focused therapist, my goal is to help you to enhance your personal growth. I practice dynamic problem-solving with children, adolescents, and adults, coping with the life cycle stresses of "full catastrophe living", as described by Jon Kabat-Zinn in his book of the same name. The purpose of therapy is to reduce suffering, to develop a more affirming sense of self and to change damaging beliefs. My view is that we all need, at times, to create a space where we can practice a new attitude toward life, the world and ourselves.

Struggling from anxiety, depression, panic, or relationship issues, among others, prevents us from attaining the quality of life we want. There are so many reasons that you may feel trapped in the present or fear the future. It is important to find a therapist with whom you feel comfortable with, to really listen, and explore these issues and provide help. I provide a supportive and safe environment in which we will work together to explore, both situations and feelings that are in your way.

Even when we have tremendous anxiety and pain, the strength and resilience we desire already reside within. During times of stress, grief or uncertainty, it is common to forget this and to adopt maladaptive styles of coping and communicating that tend to deepen our distress. Sometimes we fall back into negative thinking based on faulty core beliefs about ourselves and the world. I will bear witness to your struggles with empathy and non-judgment. You will be seen, you will be heard, and you will be supported in your growth.

Change and well being are possible. Relationships and circumstances of life often present challenges that overwhelm us mentally, emotionally, and physically. As a result we develop blocks in our thinking, feelings, and develop physical symptoms that cause distress and prevent us from functioning at an optimal level. I am dedicated to understanding your unique experiences and history. Together we develop a plan creating a well balanced integration between thoughts, feelings, and behavior. Development of trust and the practice of mindful awareness enables self reflection, clarity of perspective and compassionate understanding of your history as it impacts present day choices.
