I have 9 years of experience working with those struggling with anxiety, depression, eating disorders, relationship difficulties, and various forms of trauma.
Understanding your emotions and being able to express them with a trained professional can help you overcome the challenges in your life. It is common to avoid thoughts and feelings that are distressing, and for this reason many people hesitate calling a therapist until long after they initially contemplate it. I focus on the reasons behind these avoidances in order to make life more manageable, and I do so in a safe, comfortable, and nonjudgmental space. Discussing and understanding your past experiences and relationships are important parts of gaining insight and making necessary changes.

I will work with you individually or as a couple to develop a relationship in a safe place where difficulties in living can be addressed.
As a psychotherapist for more than 25 years, I have seen how people get in their own way and prevent themselves from living the lives they want. I work with individuals who have trouble in relationships with partners, children, friends, bosses. I focus on helping people to become more comfortable with themselves and with their own thoughts and feelings and with the way others feel about them. I have a special interest in working with parenting, couple and workplace issues.

The stress of trying to manage it all when it feels like you're drowning is exhausting! I specialize in working with women feeling overwhelmed by relationship issues , parenting challenges, a devastating loss, or traumatic event. My clients often struggle with feeling depleted; they're tired, their thoughts keep racing, the anxiety's overwhelming, and they can feel very stuck and really alone in their pain. It's a lot! And when life stressors occur it's ok to not feel ok, it's human. Some who are used to doing things on their own may question why healing would be any different and so continue to suffer. You don't need to go it alone.

My specialized skills in Marriage and Couples therapy are designed to help my patients establish a healthy couple relationship .
Do I need therapy? Is there something wrong with me if I do? These kinds of questions deeply concern one dissatisfied with his life. A person who enters my practice is interested in improving quality in his life. Feeling lonely, confused, stuck and frustrated interfere with living a full, rich life. Failed or unrewarding relationships; unsuccessful or disappointing work/career situations are clear reasons to seek therapy. Through the work we do together, I help each person redesign his life to create a lifestyle more fitting to meet his needs to begin experiencing life in a most meaningful and rich way.

My specialties include anxiety, depression, relationship and social issues, family conflict, parenting, academic underachievement, school pressure, coping skills, life transitions, stress, infertility, grief, loss, career and creative work conflicts.
As a psychotherapist, I provide a safe environment for reflection where discovering and exploring fixed patterns that hinder you from realizing goals can lead to awareness. We all have parts of ourselves that we do not understand and feel that we cannot change, often leaving us feeling stuck and overwhelmed. Telling your story and gaining deeper understanding of yourself can have transforming effects on your life. I work with patients facing problems in love, work, family, school, issues with self-esteem, identity, and trauma. My analytic training makes me a skilled and empathic listener, helping to identify themes that lead to insights and more choices.

I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, depression, relationship issues , and trauma in adults.
I hold a license in Mental Health Counseling and completed comprehensive post-graduate training in psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. The people I work with have often found themselves on a journey to better understand the obstacles in their lives and to acquire the skills to overcome them. Many of my clients are looking to address mood and anxiety issues related to challenges with specific stressful situations or relationships, or perhaps questions about long-standing patterns that have resulted in a sense of dissatisfaction in life. A common focus is to deepen awareness of internal conflicts and develop new ways to resolve them.

We may address health/work/ relationship crises and other life-challenges.
I believe that people thrive when they are authentically connected to themselves and each other. When these connections are disrupted by fear, trauma, depression, loss, or some life transition, it can be helpful to have a place to rediscover and repair those connections. Having a safe environment where an empathic presence and a constructive perspective are provided can help to restore stability, reinforce your strengths, and allow you to grow and build toward living your fullest life possible. My approach to psychotherapy is collaborative, practical, and goal oriented.

I bring curiosity, warmth, and humor to the therapeutic relationship .
It can be hard deciding you want help and are worthy of it. Whether your challenges arise from trauma, relationships, life transitions, loss, parenting, or work, ultimately what you may be seeking is a change in your relationship to yourself.

I appreciate the courage and determination one needs to begin psychotherapy and the importance of finding a therapist with whom to establish a genuine connection. With that in mind, I strive to provide an empathic, collaborative, and supportive relationship with my clients. I believe that our psychological development continues throughout life and that the process of psychotherapy provides challenging opportunities with which to identify, understand, and resolve problems. Psychotherapy has the potential to increase understanding of the powerful influences of our past and to provide insight into how and why they have an impact on our present behaviors and beliefs.

With over 30 years of private practice, I have seen major changes in people resolving problems and changing their lives for the better. You may come in with issues such as relationships difficulties, anxiety, depression, narcissism, sexual identity, coping with stress, self-sabotage, lack of confidence, problems with aging, and others, which we can deal with together. In therapy, we have an opportunity to identify repetitive patterns and assumptions that interfere with a satisfying life. I bring an analytically informed approach, while maintaining a focus on your present life and interactions, as well as using the relationship between us as a valuable source of information.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.
