You don’t need to struggle with your child’s anxiety or behavior issues on your own. As a Psychologist, I use talk and play therapies designed specifically for your child and your unique family situation. Early treatment can provide benefits that last a lifetime and I aim for children to feel understood and heard while helping parents to gain insight and tangible strategies that can impact the dynamic of the entire family. With compassion, knowledge and energy, I offer hope, support, and solutions that result in progress and change.
Life is about transition. And with each transition comes challenges. Some are easy and some more difficult to manage.
Sometimes the challenge comes in the form of a failed relationship, sometimes we lose a loved one and feel the desolation and loneliness of dealing with life's challenges alone, sometimes anxiety takes over and renders us less capable of managing our daily responsibilities. Sometimes we act in ways that even we do not fully understand or that moves us further and further away from success, happiness and serenity.

The future you deserve. You know it's out there - but how do you get there? If you're searching for a therapist, there's a good chance you're experiencing emotional pain. You may have suffered a loss or experienced trauma. Perhaps you are dealing with a pattern of troubled relationships, or a tendency toward underachievement at work or school. It may be that you're struggling with a difficult life transition, or a history of self-sabotaging behaviors that has kept you from achieving your goals and finding peace.
"What you think about you bring about."
Think about this quote for a moment. It describes who you are. If you want to change your feelings and behaviors you must first change the way you think.
Therapy begins the moment you pick-up the phone. It is my priority to personally respond to all inquiries and first time appointments. My number one goal is to help you make lasting changes in your life and to unleash your inner strength.
Being a good therapist requires more than being a good listener. My treatment style is dynamic, interpersonal, and focused on creating real and lasting change. Let's talk about how you can start living the life you want.
As a clinical psychologist with over 30+ years of experience, I believe the purpose of therapy is to work together to face issues until they are resolved. It is important to feel some relief. As a good listener I have strong empathetic skills. I provide a warm, accepting and non-judgmental setting where a positive alliance can be formed. Therapy is a place to feel understood, to unload, share, but is also result oriented. Therefore, my approach is interactive. I work with children,adolescents, adults, families and couples.
Relationships are hard. Feeling like you & your partner are too busy, with no time for each other. That you've grown apart, almost like roommates. Intimacy barely existent. Having the same, unresolved arguments. Uncertain about where your relationship stands. Divorce keeps popping up in your mind. Feel like you keep swiping -- dating scene feels defeating. Looking for hope, a new route for your relationship(s) - rebuilding, reconnecting or separating/divorce or an open relationship. It's scary to embark on individual or couple's therapy, sharing all of this with a stranger, but you're ready to work & create change.
Empowerment, trust, and respect are essential qualities of the therapeutic alliance. There can be initial feelings of fear, shame, and personal judgment experienced when making the decision to begin therapy. By providing a safe, compassionate, and warm environment, I believe I meet my clients in a space of empathy which fosters meaningful change they wish to implement in their lives. Through the process of therapy, I strive to help individuals navigate distressing thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that interfere with happiness and fulfillment.
Psychoanalyst Harry Stack Sullivan said "we are all much more simply human than otherwise," meaning that we, and our problems and difficulties in living, are not as unique to us as they may seem. Philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche wrote "We all must simply become who we are." Easy to think about, easy to say... but living it is another matter. My patients find in me someone who can detect and amplify possibilities to which they (and their partners and families) may be blind. My purpose as a psychotherapist is to help you become your best self, by listening to you, hearing you, responding to you, helping you voice yourself.
It can be difficult to take that first step to seek help, wondering if you'll select the right therapist and whether the process will make a difference in your life. The clients I work with are often struggling with life transitions-divorce, relationship/marital conflicts, loss of a loved one, life/career decisions-issues that are difficult and can result in anxiety, depression, or anger, and mostly interfere with life satisfaction and functioning at full capability.
As a strengths-based therapist, I believe that every individual has the potential to achieve the highest version of themselves through a combination of knowledge, insight and behavioral change. Whether you are struggling to navigate a difficult life event, seeking greater self-compassion or wanting to understand how to break old patterns of thinking or relating that are no longer serving you, I will help you to identify the barriers and develop the understanding and skills you need to move forward.
It is often quite difficult to make that first phone call requesting therapy. Usually that call is precipitated by the realization that possibly, " I don't have to face my difficulties alone" and "just maybe, I can feel better sooner with some help". I always make an effort to help clients feel at ease and to clarify their needs. I work towards enabling clients to experience their strengths as they address their difficulties.
I’m an experienced therapist who specializes in both individual and couples work. My approach involves creating a comfortable, non judging environment to safely explore challenging concerns and difficult emotions such as anxiety, anger, fear and depression. My goal is to work through any self defeating patterns, help process through overwhelming feelings and heal negative experiences that may be effecting you or your loved ones.
I work with individuals and couples who are struggling with feelings of: hopelessness, anger, fear, frustration, resentment, sadness, and confusion.

I foster a collaborative and non-judgmental alliance between us-- this is vital for your therapeutic experience to be a success. You will discover a safe environment where, together, we can explore the external and internal roadblocks that are preventing you from being as happy as you deserve to be.
Everyone has a unique and special story and life experiences that have brought them to the place they are in now. I am here to listen empathically without judgement and help understand the person you are and the struggles and challenges you are facing. I use various modalities of therapy customized to meet my clients needs. I will implement a personalized therapeutic approach dependent on the assessment of your individual circumstances and needs .
