People often turn to psychotherapy when our usual ways of coping with the world become inadequate or counterproductive. We may feel overwhelmed by events, or experience a painful awareness that our lives are not what we want them to be. Sometimes life transitions, such as the loss of a loved one, birth of a child, divorce, job change, or retirement challenge our sense of self, our ties to others, and our understanding of what's important to us. We experience symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Do you ever feel that perhaps, if someone would listen to your concerns and "get it", you might be able to make "sense out of nonsense"? My clients are the drivers, directors and deciders of their talk sessions. You bring your areas of concern to the table and in a safe and trusting setting we join hands in a collaborative effort to make "sense out of nonsense". Pieces of the puzzle start to fit.

Families evolve and change over time. As individuals age and grow, their roles within the family also change. The family can help - or hinder - individual and personal growth. Family work can help to make the family a positive source of support. Family work will help you to step back and observe emotional patterns and processes. There definitely can be family change with only one person in the room working with a therapist. In physics there is an adage: for every action there is a reaction.

Listening to the narrative of every person's life is fascinating to me. I am empathic, interactive and am a firm believer that good therapy brings results that make people feel more comfortable, empowered, and gives you the strength that is needed to grow. Therapy begins with identifying painful situations, or problematic themes that repeatedly arise, and interfere with one's life. I believe that therapy should be transformative, and I try to provide a healing experience for those clients with whom I work. I am particularly skilled in working with panic disorder, depression, divorce conflict, and trauma, including sexual abuse.
