Feeling "stuck"? Your usual ways of coping don't seem to work well anymore? I can help you get "unstuck". I have a holistic, partnership approach to both therapy and psychological testing. Mind and body are interrelated and positive change in one will benefit the other. We can help you improve your ability to cope well with stressful situations and difficult life changes. I focus on the strengths you have and I will help you to improve your coping and to learn new skills. You will be empowered to manage both current and future challenges.
Entering into psychotherapy is a very big step. I congratulate you for your bravery. Perhaps you have had therapy before and are returning because it was so helpful to you. Maybe you have never talked to a counselor before but you know that you need the help of a professional. No matter who you are, you have something in common with the over 7 billion people on our planet....you experience anger, depression, anxiety, guilt, shame and a multitude of other painful emotions. In my work I use a warm, humanistic approach that you will find comforting and affirming.
I believe you can change by focusing on what is important to you, and your strengths. My expertise is working with Anxiety, Addiction, ADHD, Depression, Childhood & Adulthood Trauma, Relationship, and Couple’s issues.
As a woman, you have lots of roles and responsibilities...between work, family and friends, you try your best to be there for everyone and that can feel overwhelming. Worry thoughts creep in and play in a constant loop in your head. You may feel called to unhealthy behaviors that provide a temporary moment of peace. You've tried to talk yourself out of your negative thoughts but it doesn't last. You've become used to that tightness in your body and pit in your stomach. What you really want is to feel relaxed (maybe even enough to get a good night's sleep) and enjoy your life.
Witnessing a child you love struggle is a unique and painful challenge for parents and caretakers. Whether it is a specific behavior you have been concerned about for a while, or a more recent challenge that has emerged, I am here to help.
Over the last 25 years I have worked with individuals who have struggled with issues ranging from difficulty with their mood,(depression/anxiety etc.) to having a history of trauma, as well as relational troubles.
My specialties include childhood problems with toileting, sleep, emotional and behavioral adjustment and divorce. I work individually with adults and couples, particularly with relationship issues and divorce. I conduct child custody evaluations and provide mediation/parenting coordination for high conflict parents. The impact of divorce and death on the family is particularly painful for children and for parents who are trying to navigate their own survival.

I will support increasing your awareness of your strengths, gifts, and uniqueness, while collaborating with you to identify habits and patterns that are no longer useful or effective in helping you meet your needs.
I help 20s and 30s women stop settling and start boldly standing for the relationship they deep-down desire. I know how painful it can be when you deeply desire a romantic relationship but don't have it yet. There can be so much self-doubt, anxiety, and uncertainty. Maybe you keep ending up in the same noncommittal relationships. Maybe you keep ending up with the same kind of unavailable partners who can't generously give you the love and care that you truly deserve. If this is you, please know that there is a way forward. Dating with confidence and creating a healthy relationship is an inside job, so YOU hold the power to change.
