As humans we are built for connection and have a biological need to feel loved, understood, accepted and secure. When these key ingredients are missing from our most important relationships, it can be isolating and may lead to feelings of anxiety, loneliness, frustration or even resentment. If you find yourself struggling with such feelings, therapy can help you learn the necessary skills to reduce relationship tension and improve communication in your relationships (romantic, friends, family or even at work). I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker specializing in behavioral, emotional and communication difficulties.

My goal in therapy is not to "fix" you, but to help you develop insight and awareness into how you have constructed your inner world and to what degree this has impacted your interactions with people and circumstances in your present life. People develop ways of viewing the world and themselves through their own unique life experiences. Our thoughts, perspectives, emotions, and behaviors evolve as a result of several factors which are different for every individual. When our own experience of what reality is clashes with others', we can feel overwhelmed with anxiety, depression, anger, or low self esteem.

In my time practicing, I have worked with a variety of people working to achieve many different goals, and together we have worked to identify such and build a framework to best achieve self-identified happiness. I have worked with individuals to assist on a path to finding a new and most positive direction in life. I like to know that happiness comes in many ways. One of my favorite sayings is "Do something good for yourself today".

Life can be full of surprises, not all of them happy. There may be times when, quite out of the blue, you feel anxious, depressed, or just plain stuck. Even in the midst of personal, financial and professional success, you might still find you are struggling emotionally, interiorly questioning, wondering whether all the energy and time you have put into your life is really paying off. Often, you may not know what exactly is troubling you and yet feel quite certain that something is not quite right inside. When it feels this way, therapy can help.

More Than Just Talk....... If you haven't been in psychotherapy before, you may not realize that the traditional approach to treatment is to educate the client about their conditions and teach them how to change their own feelings and behaviors. Although this approach can be very helpful, it is usually a long process that depends a great deal on the individual's courageous persistence. Moreover, a change in behavior and belief does not necessarily resolve the history of negative experiences fueling such things as depression and anxiety. These are some of the reasons I offer "More Than Just Talk".
