If you are skeptical about psychotherapy because so many therapists endlessly talk about feelings, dwell on the past, or have abstract theories that only they understand, then my sensible approach is for you. I teach you ideas to help you cope with difficult situations, challenging people, unfair burdens, acts of disrespect, disapproval, rejection, and states of deprivation. I teach you ideas and strive to get you in and out of therapy. In my view therapy should be problem-focused, efficient, sensible, and teach you how to help yourself. I do not want you to grow dependent on a psychotherapist but rather learn how to depend on you.

Do you worry all the time? Is it hard for you to turn your thoughts off? Would you like to enjoy the present moment, but feel unable to do so because you are so focused on the past or future? For many people, their fears negatively affect their relationships, work and health. They don't know how to let go of their worries or they've tried things that only made their problems worse.

Do you lose your temper in an instant? Do you find it difficult to stay calm when people don't do what you want them to do? Is your anger putting your job or relationships at risk? Feelings of anger can play a positive role in our lives, letting us know when something is wrong. Unfortunately, without the right tools to express our emotions in healthy and appropriate ways, anger can be a destructive force. But you can learn how to stay in control of your behavior and communicate calmly.

I know that finding the right therapist can be intimidating. My goal is to make the therapy process welcoming and transparent. I work particularly well with people who've been told they are "too sensitive" or who identify as Highly Sensitive People. My talent lies in treating anxiety, trauma and attachment/relationship wounds, as well as depression. I support those who care for their communities: healers, caregivers, artists or those with creative practices, and activists. I've worked w/ ages 3-90 across class, race, gender, sexual orientation, & health status. Together, we can explore hard topics with sensitivity and humor.

Have you recognized that with a little help you could feel better, especially during this difficult time? It's hard to manage by yourself - it takes courage to ask for help - and a qualified, highly experienced, trusting person to listen, learn about your unique situation and needs - to support you. Sometimes you just need to talk confidentially with someone to help you hash out intense thoughts and emotions that you might be holding back. When anxiety, depressed mood, anger or other uncomfortable feelings are overwhelming, I can help you regulate emotions, think more clearly, feel more productive and function better.

You look in the mirror and see the "bad" traits. That you're not thin enough, not smart enough, not "good" enough. You realize that these traits were projected there by someone else--a past partner, or maybe even a parent. You want to recover from perhaps a lifetime of emotional pain and narcissistic abuse but you don't know where to begin...I specialize in treating individuals who are adult children of narcissists, and those who may be struggling with disordered eating and body image issues. I can support you in developing your inner strengths so that when you look in the mirror it will be your true self staring back at you.

Are you going through a rough time? Have job changes or loss, separation or divorce or becoming a parent been harder than you anticipated? For many people, life transitions like these can negatively impact our mental health, leading to stress, anxiety, anger or addictive behaviors. Common reactions include always worrying, having difficulty sleeping, or snapping at the people we love. And for many of us, when we try to change these thoughts and behaviors, we only make it worse.

It is a mystery as to why things happen to us. It becomes even more complex as to how we will heal. Sometimes the emotional pain can become too difficult to get through alone and we often seek additional help. Whether you're suffering from a loss of a loved one, a marital conflict, stress, anxiety, or even PTSD, there is still hope. I believe that true healing comes from healthy attachments to self and others, meaningful mind-body connections, and by gaining better control over your thoughts, emotions and physical being.

I specialize in seeing a client's stated issues as part of a system - the world where one lives. Helping clients to rediscover and utilize his/her/their strengths in dealing with the difficulties one faces while working to challenge external stressors by helping the client to interact with the issue differently than before are my ultimate goals as a therapist. To do this, clients will need to determine the goals of therapy, find the right balance of responsibility in the situation presented, and then, through therapy, develop the tools and understanding necessary to realize these goals.

I use a whole-person approach and learn not just about a person’s pain but also about their strengths and their vision for a better future.
