Change—both expected and wanted or the complete opposite—affects us all, and we cope with it in varying ways. Traumatic events are never planned and often require new strategies to effectively navigate a world that may no longer feel as safe as it once had. The impact of loss, anticipated or not, deeply affects individuals, families and couples. My clinical practice is built on an investment in encouraging one’s own narrative expression of the human experience, identifying skills and strategies for living one’s best life, and providing a secure and caring place in which to grow and love change.

I find that individuals and couples come to therapy when they are having difficulties in their lives such as job stress, problems with their teen or adult child, caregiver stress, sexual and communication concerns, coping with illness, disability and/ or chronic pain, and grief. Depression and anxiety are often natural outcomes of struggling with these issues.

Beyond knowing a therapist has degrees and a license a list of credentials do not matter much in your choosing. Therapy is more art than science. Nor may you be impressed with a long series of my professional accomplishments. What you want to know is: Can I stop the pain? Can I make your depression and anxiety go away? Can I fix your career or relationship problem? The answer is: No, I cannot. But together we can. If you will bring the motivation and some willingness to trust I will bring knowledge and the ability to shift things. And perhaps, with the help of an unseen grace, together we can heal the hurt and find a solution.

It takes courage to start working with a new therapist. The very fact that you’re considering it probably means you’re getting ready to make some significant changes in your life. My approach to therapy focuses on understanding and accepting you as you are right now, and creating a safe space where you can figure out where you want to go from here. We’ll work together as you get ready to make the sometimes tough (and rewarding) changes that will give you a better life. We will also deal with any stresses you're experiencing due to the coronavirus, including the isolation of sheltering in place and uncertainties about the future.
