You are not alone as we partner together to explore, uncover and remove the obstacles that prevent you from becoming your best self and having the quality of life you long for. Using a psychodynamic framework to engage you, build hope, and establish a healing relationship, I specialize in dealing with the cumulative life stresses, traumas, griefs and losses that insidiously sabotage your best efforts, deplete your energy, tempt you into addictions to numb and avoid the pain life has brought you, or turn your long suffering into despair and depression.

Do you feel anxious or depressed? Are you experiencing life stressors, loss, conflict, change, illness or trauma? When this happens, and coping skills break down, life quickly unravels. Compassion, empathy and ability, paired with a therapist who can guide you to healing, can really help you feel better and improve your quality of life. That person is me, and I am honored to walk along with you on the path to healing. Rarely is a single approach right for healing, growth and change. Rather, I believe in an eclectic approach to ensure one's desired goals for treatment are met.

Feeling overwhelmed is an understatement and discouragement is all too familiar. Life is hard! Your relationship is falling apart and you have no idea where to begin to keep it from crumbling to pieces. You just wish your spouse would change. You wish they would just accept you for who you are. If only they listened to you and loved you like you need them to. The hamster wheel keeps turning and the same conflicts keep surfacing. You've tried over and over again to change but you just end up right where you started. Will it ever get better?

Do you feel lost, alone or unmotivated? Are you feeling stuck? Perhaps overwhelmed and disconnected? Like you are just surviving? Life doesn't always turn out the way we planned or envisioned for ourselves. Sometimes we go down paths or take turns that we did not expect. This can bring on a range of emotions that we are not prepared for. This is normal, and you are not alone. My goal is to provide a safe space to process these feelings, find balance and manage the stressors that arise in life.

I specialize in working with individuals dealing with anxiety, self-esteem issues, relationship challenges, depression, and family conflict. My role in the therapeutic process is supporting clients as they build upon their own personal narrative of their lives to help them have a deeper understanding of their past, present, and future.

My practice is fully committed to working with clients using ketamine. My ideal client is motivated to make change and open to atypical therapy approaches. I believe that we have the resources within us to self- heal and often just need a way to help access that information. Using ketamine, clients are able to find peace and healing from within. I am honored and grateful to be able to offer this type of therapy and witness unbelievable change.

I believe that all people seeking therapy are truly unique, yet we all have the same basic needs for acceptance, compassion, happiness, and human connection. For some, our early childhood experiences prevent us from getting these needs met as adults. For others, it is simply the stresses and demands of everyday life that contribute to our feeling anxious, depressed or having chronic pain symptoms. Sometimes we experience losses (big or small) which are hard to process and recover from. Often it is a combination of factors that we cannot clearly identify. Therapy is the path toward getting your needs met.

Engaging in therapy is a vulnerable and sometimes scary process. I specialize in working with couples in a committed relationship. Working on relationships I often find the thing that brings couples together initially, gets lost after the "honeymoon" period is over. It is easy to get complacent with all of life's stressors. Being a strength-based therapist, I believe that anything is possible if both people are willing to work. And to be honest, therapy is work! I view my clients as the experts in their life and work together with them to create positive change.

If you are reading this I imagine you are struggling right now. You might be feeling anxious or depressed. Or maybe you're having difficulty communicating or resolving conflict with your significant other. Trying to find the "right" therapist can be an overwhelming task. I am told I am easy to talk to, down to earth and bring my authentic self to sessions. Couples have told me that EFT (emotionally focused therapy) saved their relationship, where other therapies had failed. I encourage you to contact me for a free 10-15 minute phone consultation to learn if we are a good fit.

What type of Penfield mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Penfield?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
