A break-up, the loss of a loved one, anxiety, or adjusting to a life transition are common issues addressed in therapy. Most people go through difficult times; therapy helps you to gain better insight into your struggles and make lasting changes. Therapy can truly change how you see yourself, how you feel, and how you experience life. I work to create a judgment free, safe environment using a strength-based, holistic approach to meet your individual needs. I have extensive training in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), though this is just one of the tools in my toolbox. I believe therapy is a collaborative process that is tailored

Often, people come to us without having explored psychological concerns in a sophisticated way. If they had past therapy, they were at times disappointed that it did not go deeper, as it left the greater meaning (the "roots") of their symptoms unexplored. As psychodynamic therapists, however, our goal is to see comprehensively, with thoughtful attention to the subtle depths and intricacies of your experience. In so doing, we can help to both resolve symptoms and impart meaning to your experiences, even those thoughts, feelings, and emotions that are often deemed painful or meaningless.

I've always sought mentors to guide me through life's trials, and luckily found many along the way. Now I pass on the sum of their wisdom along with my own. Therapy, a process of healing, happens through shared presence and expanding awareness. It's a safe place where truth can be expressed and pain transformed. We typically cope with pain through distraction, intoxication or denial. Learning to be emotionally sober we can heal our relationships - with ourselves and others. "Process" addictions, loss, trauma and shame are respectfully addressed. Empowerment, clarity, healing and comfort with emotional intimacy are consequences.

We all have rainy days. Likewise, we all have sunny days, cloudy days, and all other variations that enable us to live a fulfilled life. Yet for some of us, sometimes the 'not great' days last weeks, at times months, and even years. This makes life just that much harder to live. It makes relationships hard to make and keep, makes it difficult to succeed in school or work and impairs our ability to complete even the simplest of tasks. We can work together in order to embrace these experiences, cope with hardship in a healthy manner, move forward and live each day to the fullest.
