My vision of the counseling process comes from a belief that all of us, at times, encounter experiences that we are unable to handle on our own. These brief times are but a small moment in the course of our existence. How we handle these small moments can make a big difference in the direction and quality of our lives. This, to me, is the essence of being a therapist. My goal is to help others learn, grow and develop the tools and skills necessary to triumph during these difficult times.

You think you're handling things, but then somewhere along the way, you've lost your grip. You can't sleep, you can't calm yourself down, and it seems like everyday stress deeply impacts you. You've tried but you can't reason with your thoughts. You know they're dark, or dramatic, or too anxious, but you can't seem to stop the cycle. Maybe it's impacting you internally only. Maybe it's affecting your work. Maybe you're losing friendships or relationships because of the emotions that take over so easily. It's exhausting. Whatever the case, you know it's time for help. Surely somebody knows the way out of this mess.

In two decades of practice, I have worked with people across the life span: children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. I use an integrative approach to maximize the happiness of my client, including cognitive behavioral therapy, family therapy, and mindfulness. I help clients draw from their own strengths to take action to achieve their goals. I help couples find strategies to improve communication, restore intimacy to their relationship, and resolve conflicts before they escalate. One of my special interests is helping parents who are at their wit's end dealing with difficult children, teenagers, or young adults.

I help children, teens, adults and families to overcome anxiety, divorce, grief, ADHD, OCD, self-esteem issues and more. Do you suffer from excessive fears and anxieties? Even in the best situations, everyone experiences some anxiety in the form of worry, apprehension or fear. These worries become a significant problem when it impacts your ability to function, and avoidance becomes an automatic response. Help is needed when you feel constantly keyed up and reassurances are ineffective in helping you move through the anxiety.

All the unknowns in life can be terrifying, but everything you want for yourself to live your best life is on the other side of fear. Often it requires us to be much more compassionate with ourselves on our way towards growth. Compassion to recognize that growth takes time and moving from point A to Z doesn’t happen overnight. Change is clearly not easy. If it were there would be no need for anyone’s assistance as we grow and change.

The decision to begin therapy can be daunting, but it is also incredibly empowering. You may just feel derailed by life and don’t know why. Perhaps a major life transition is throwing you a curve and you need help navigating the change. When the ability to function at your best is impeded by stress, irritability, sadness, fear, or anxiety you may get “stuck”. Other times you may turn to behaviors or substances that alleviate negative feelings, yet your problems persist. My focus is to generate a genuine professional rapport in a non-judgmental setting to safely examine the complex human experiences that may be holding you hostage.
