I subscribe to Irving Yalom's "fellow travelers" philosophy of psychotherapy that seeks to eradicate the old hierarchy of "therapist" and "patient." I consider it a sacred honor to be walking alongside my clients on the road toward more healthy, passionate, fulfilling lives and, as such, find myself just as inspired through the process of therapy as they are.

Clients, as well as therapists, come in all shapes and sizes. When it comes to finding a good fit in a therapist, clients should feel safe and comfortable to be able to open up over time. Personality plays a huge role in compatibility. Down to earth, approachable, and relaxed are three qualities that describe my persona. I strive to provide clients with a safe space to feel respected, heard, and understood. I support clients in building effective communication skills, fostering meaningful relationships, practicing appropriate social skills, utilizing healthy coping strategies, and to establish and maintain healthy boundaries.
I work with my clients using a variety of approaches in a collaborative effort to help them reach their defined goals. Together we focus on wellness, self-responsibility and empowerment. For over 35 years I have helped individuals who are struggling with depression, anxiety, eating disorders, marital conflict and any other issues contributing to distress. Because I have been in private practice for decades, I have had the benefit of having past clients keeping me informed of their progress, sharing their joys and triumphs through the years.

My goal is to help clients learn to better cope with the many challenges life presents, to grow and thrive.
I assist adults, teenagers and children to improve the
quality of their lives by identifying and resolving issues
themselves and in relationships with others.
I help people to know that having problems is normal,
but that it also normal to resolve problems.
People learn that by taking control of their lives, they
reduce depression, anxiety and anger.
Employing a collaborative approach to practice that focuses on patients' inherent strengths and integrates modalities of family systems therapy, DBT, CBT, and mindfulness to create a safe therapeutic space that promotes holistic growth and joy
One size never fits all. Using a collaborative approach, I work to help clients identify goals and areas for change. Building on your unique strengths and resilience, we will work to integrate and enhance skills needed to manage anxiety, depression, stress, and relationship and sexual issues. My goal is to help clients explore past interpersonal patterns and relational dynamics in a safe therapeutic setting, in order to create more positive and fulfilling experiences for the future. Additionally, I use psycho-education to deepen an understanding of healthy communication skills, boundary management, emotion regulation and increased distress tolerance.
Suffering from anxiety can be like falling into quicksand—the more you fight it, the deeper you sink. Do you feel lost in your struggle with anxiety or find it difficult articulate how you are feeling? Perhaps you tend to take care of others but can’t figure out how to take care of yourself? I believe you have the power within to change your life story and psychotherapy is the tool to help you lift yourself up. Imagine being the author and the main character in your life story, with the ability to create change and move towards a more meaningful life.
Whether the client in front of me is one person or a couple, I look forward to the opportunity to help people feel heard and validated. Helping people identify and express their needs is a favorite part of the therapeutic process. From there, people can begin to identify and set the boundaries they need, leading them to feel empowered within their relationships. My wish is to give clients the opportunity to identify and communicate their needs, set boundaries, and live the life they'd prefer without others' expectations or limitations. I love to watch the transformation as clients live in a way that allows them to feel confident.
My goal in working with all who come into my office, be it child, adolescent or adult is healing. I founded The Nomad Center for Counseling out of a desire to offer healing in a compassionate and creative therapeutic setting regardless of culture or country of origin.

I strive to create a safe and nurturing environment where people can allow their true selves to emerge, whether they are 4 or 74 years old.

The ideal client typically has family or interpersonal relationship conflicts and/or poor boundaries. Also, at times the ideal client has a history of childhood trauma or childhood conflicts that the client has not processed. I would process their family/interpersonal relationship conflicts and trauma/conflicts and create healthy coping skills to cope with these issues. Also, I would want to explore with the client what the client considers healthy and unhealthy boundaries and be able to create healthier boundaries in these relationships.
