Life is complex, and I bring a realistic, empathetic, and non-judgemental presence to witness and support you as you explore whatever brings you to therapy. I specialize in trauma at any age and working with parents who are struggling to understand their child's difficult behaviors.

What do we have to gain from therapy? Therapy can help with a variety of challenges. For some it can help with improving communication within our relationships. Therapy can offer us time to reflect on what it is we want, are needing, or what we feel is missing. Therapy can also assist with understanding what we can do as parents to effectively guide our children and teens in challenging times. Above all, therapy offers another set of trained eyes to help gain the clarity needed to move forward.

I am accepting new referrals using telemedicine now. If I am not available, I can refer you to one of my colleagues at our clinic. I really enjoy working with motivated clients who are seeking help to resolve problems in their life. Some things are simple but other things are quite complex. I enjoy working with both kinds of problems. It is very satisfying to watch a client learn, grow and change - and sometimes over years of time.

People often seek psychotherapy when they have had experiences that are painful and difficult to understand or talk about with even the closest people in their lives. In these times, many people find it helpful to have a trusting, compassionate, and confidential professional relationship where they can work things through. Talking through our experiences and feelings has the power to heal and to make deep, long-lasting change. I am committed to fostering a safe and comfortable context to help my clients do the important work of understanding the most troubling parts of their lives and relationships.

I believe that it takes courage and strength to move towards healing, and as a therapist it is my privilege to witness adolescents, adults, and families engage in this difficult and rewarding work. In my practice as a therapist, I believe the relationship supports acceptance of the self and stepping into a more authentic, present life. I work collaboratively to develop goals that support client’s values, and work with clients to shift into more meaningful life balance. I provide a safe, supportive environment that honors my belief that clients know themselves best.

Or maybe you've become frustrated by patterns that seem to repeat over and over, leading to problems in your relationships or at work. I work with individuals and couples in depth-oriented psychotherapy and psychoanalysis to not only reduce suffering but also develop a greater capacity for love, work, and creativity.

I BELIEVE: 1) It is in the context of relationship that we make the deepest change. 2) We grow and excel in an environment with just the right amount of support & challenge. 3) We must feel understood--by ourselves, yes, and often by another--before we can make change. 4) Engaging in our passions make us come alive. These four core beliefs guide my work as a psychologist, life coach, author, radio host, and performer. Working collaboratively and fostering safe spaces, together we can increase awareness and create experiences that allow our best selves to emerge.

Everyone gets stuck. My job is to help you see doors and windows where you once saw walls. People come to talk because they are looking to solve problems, to think about different ways to communicate, to find alternatives to frustration. Many come to talk about transitions or to better understand their relationships. Most just want things to be easier. They stay because things really do get better and because change is less daunting when talk therapy is added. The result of our collaboration: real solutions that fit you and your life.

The decision to begin therapy is not simple and often comes at a particularly challenging time in your life. I know how difficult it can be to reach out during these times and I want to congratulate you on taking this first step toward making positive change in your life. Therapy is a process of self-discovery, bringing us into greater contact with our experience of being fully alive, in the present moment. This process can help us use each moment more effectively to build a meaningful life.
