Over the past twenty years, I have been helping adults, teens and couples navigate a number of life's challenges including anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship difficulties and other major life transitions. Building trusting, honest, direct and empathic relationships with my clients is most important to me and is what I believe makes therapy successful. People seek therapy when they are struggling with something that is not working in their lives or they are dealing with painful emotions. Through a mutually respectful, collaborative process I help my clients develop new coping strategies and skills to make the changes they are looking for in their lives.

I am experienced in helping clients recapture the person they previously were. Many clients say to me, "I just want to go back to being the person I used to be", and that's exactly what we focus on. Clients also often say to me, "I just don't know what to do or what I want", and we work together until we figure out how to alleviate their confusion. We achieve this in various ways, most often through exploration of the presenting issues, examination of past relationships and significant experiences as well as decision-making and behavioral patterns.

You wake to another day, feeling apprehension and fear. You experience physical symptoms; a pit in your stomach, fast heartbeat, and uneasiness. The constant voice in your head reminds you of all of the “shoulds” and “what if’s”. Feelings of hopelessness and depression take over. You have tried to share your feelings with friends and family members, only to be told, you worry too much and just need to relax. You try to relax and focus on all of the good in your life, but that doesn’t make you feel better. You focus on pushing forward and getting things done, but it is hard to concentrate. You are tired of feeling this way.
