Feeling 'stuck' and often say to yourself, "How am I back here again? I'm so sick and tired of it!" I understand that sense of confusion and defeat. I help people with depression, anxiety and addictions break through those nagging, repetitive cycles of frustration. I use humor in a gentle way to explore past traumas, compassionately eliminating limiting beliefs. People are struggling today to feel better and move their lives forward. I'll work closely with you to break through those impasses to a more satisfying life. You'll soon experience a flow "in" your life more than a struggle "with" it.

Imagine being able to feel calm and at ease. To have peace of mind and not having to worry about so many different things. Imagine not worrying about what will be in the future and having guilt and regret of the past.

Hello! Taking the first step into therapy can be a difficult one, and I want to commend you for taking that first step. We all face many different stressors in our lives. Between work, school, our friends and families and other relationships, it can become overwhelming to deal with it all. As we learn and grow, we may also discover new emotions or parts of ourselves that we are unfamiliar with, or we may recognize issues and struggles we have pushed off for far too long.

C.G. Jung stated, "In many cases in therapy the patient who has come to us has a story that is not told, and which as a rule no one knows of. To my mind, therapy only really begins after the investigation of that wholly personal story. It is the patient's secret, the rock against which s/he is shattered." My practice involves creating a client/therapist relationship and environment where this wholly personal story can be explored and brought to consciousness. I work to create a safe, accepting, nonjudgmental, and collaborative space that will bring wholeness and meaning to the suffering that every human experiences.

Experienced Clinician Supporting Those Struggling with Grief and Trauma: Grief, loss and feeling lost is something everyone experiences. The pain of loss shows us our love for those we miss. Yet we may struggle with emotions we don’t understand, blame, guilt, anger among many others, but you're not alone. You may be looking to reimagine the relationship with your person, understand the “why”, or overcome guilt of moving forward and feel joy again. Your grief is your own and no one can tell you how to grieve, but finding support to cope, heal and grow in your journey can help integrate your loss story into your life story.

You’re aware that time is running out. You think about this more than others, which can get very lonely. You seek that which is meaningful, authentic, sacred. You’ve put time, money and energy into this quest. You’re exhausted. You’ve been disappointed so many times. Don’t settle. This is your life, your therapy. You know you need the courage to live by your convictions, but it’s hard to clarify exactly what you believe in. You know you need partnership and community, but when things go sideways in your relationships, at work, with family and friends, they’re not telling you what you’re doing wrong.

Imagine you're in a brightly lit, comfortable and spacious room with lots of natural light pouring in. It's very easy to see and feel safe. Suddenly the windows go black blocking the sun light, the lights in the room go off and you can't see a thing. The sense of spaciousness gives way to pitch black darkness and you since you can't see you're too scared to move. The first thing you need to do is calm down if you feel fear or anger. If you feel paralyzed you need to start believing in yourself. Once you can think straight, you can start taking steps towards finding a way to create light and dispel the darkness.

I have been in practice for over 30 years, working with couples, individuals, children and families. I use many therapeutic tools depending on my clients' individual needs. These include: helping clients look at the negative things they tell themselves; discover how their problem(s) arose, which often ends a cycle of shame and self-blame; learn the interpersonal skills they lack and then devise homework assignments to practice new skills. I often use hypnosis to address issues on a deeper level than our conscious will. Finally I help my couples and families to understand and change destructive patterns of interaction.

Life often presents us with many challenges, most of which are unexpected. If you are feeling stressed, anxious, or sad, because of your life circumstances, you don't have to suffer alone. While reaching out for help can be difficult, you may feel comforted in knowing that most people feel some apprehension in taking this first step.

We all want happiness. But at some point in our lives we may feel stuck or face certain challenges and having the support of a caring therapist can help you understand more clearly what is going on and create new ways to think about yourself and your relationship with others. Therapy should be as unique as you are. While struggle is universal, people respond differently to different types of interventions; so I will tailor your treatment to respond to your specific needs, personality, situation, relationship, and comfort level. In addition to therapy I also provide Life Coaching.

Therapy is about feeling better. It's a learning process. It requires a comfortable atmosphere, conducive to talking and expressing inner feelings. I try to create this environment by offering respect, sensitivity and compassion. I bring enthusiasm, and hope to the therapeutic process, as well as insight and creativity. This, in turn, helps one to develop an understanding of one's self and one's circumstances, and thus, the process of change begins, where one can acquire an ability to tackle whatever the challenge may be.

You may not even want to talk about your kink or CNM lifestyle, but you definitely want someone who is knowledgeable and affirming of who you are. And if your issues are in fact related to kink or CNM, we understand and can provide support and guidance.

Men's Issues Therapists

Is therapy for men different than it is for women?

Therapeutic treatments and types are the same for men as they are for women, with the same protocols followed and the same strategies employed. Discussing one’s feelings and emotions is an integral part of most therapies, and some men find doing so more challenging. Therapists can help clients through the process; some specialize in treating men for this reason.

How do you encourage a man to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love for the person while framing therapy as a tool for improving their life. Offering specific examples of how an individual’s behavior affected either himself or others should be done with compassion and with empathy. It may be useful to devise a game plan—breaking the process down into parts, such as finding a therapist, making appointments, and looking into insurance coverage.

How can men prepare for therapy?

Men can prepare for therapy by approaching the process with an open mind, being willing to talk about their challenges, and giving treatment the time to work. Before a session, an individual may want to reflect on how they’ve felt since the last session and what’s happened in their lives. It can be useful for men who struggle to recall their emotional states to write down notes between sessions about their response to a given event or how they were feeling at a particular time.

What should men know about the process of therapy?

One of the most common reasons men don’t seek therapy is the notion that there’s something wrong with them if they do. Men should know that just because they’re seeking therapy doesn’t mean they’re mentally ill or damaged in some way. In the same way people work on their bodies through exercise or a craft through practice, therapy can be a way to improve the mental and emotional skills needed to be productive and effective partners, employees, and people in all realms of life.
