I help individuals and couples clarify and strengthen their relationship goals. Learning how to build more satisfying relationships leads to lasting change and empowerment. Old, less helpful ways of thinking are replaced with new, more realistic ideas of self-acceptance and how to rely on others. The result is a clearer picture of one's strengths, limitations, and belonging in the world.

In addition to having experience with common concerns such as depression, anxiety, and relationship issues , I also have worked a lot with different forms of trauma.
Hello there. I have been in practice providing psychotherapy to adults and adolescents since 1994. Some clients see me briefly for focused concerns such as life transitions or work/school issues. Others who seek my help have been struggling with longer term depression/anxiety, effects of past trauma, or problematic relationship patterns, for many years. In either case I work from a psychoanalytic framework, using the power of the here and now therapy relationship to explore how peoples' unconscious thoughts color their experience of themselves and others. Over time this work often leads to deep, lasting life changes.

I believe it is an honor to be trusted with a person's deepest emotions. I am here to offer you a space where you feel supported, understood, and challenged to explore those difficult and seemingly hard to reach places within yourself. I will foster a trusting relationship where, together, we can identify the strengths you already have, in order to cultivate change, growth, and healing. I approach therapy through an experiential lens (understanding, accepting, and experiencing emotions that guide our behaviors).

It's important you feel that your therapist is a "good fit" as the therapeutic relationship depends on feeling safe.
Are you struggling to live the life you want? Do you keep finding yourself in the same place without knowing how to change? Current situations and events can trigger old pain & trauma which can be confusing & negatively impact relationships. They can also lead to creating misguided stories that you tell yourself and that keep you anxious or in fight/flight states. I believe we sometimes need help untangling and making sense of our experiences and/or trauma in life in order to thrive. Through non-judgmental warmth, compassion and self-reflection, we re-wire old thoughts and behaviors and help you live a more authentic life.

Clients learn to shift from having their mental health defined by the content of their thoughts to having it defined by their relationship to that content.
As a Mindfulness-Based Therapist, people come to me because they want to be heard, and I provide a safe and welcoming space where their voice is heard with respect and a non judgmental approach. I am skilled in listening not just to the spoken word, but also to the body and non verbal expressions. An essential component of my approach is to demonstrate and work with my clients on developing acceptance and compassion to themselves and others. Everyone who seeks therapy for medical, personal and interpersonal reasons is welcome to my clinic. I work with individuals, couples, families and groups.

My work with families focuses on the unique challenges of: adoption, involvement with the foster care system, the effect of children on the couples' relationship , co-parenting and shared custody, infertility, blended families, divorce/separation, behavior challenges specific to young children or children with developmental delays.
All families experience transitions, and even positive change can cause stress. I employ an eclectic approach with a strong emphasis on attachment, structural, and solution-focused family therapies. I work with young children and their caregivers to form secure attachments early on. This leads to more effective communication and problem solving patterns and a higher level of resilience down the road. My work tends to be short term and builds on the existing strengths of your family. My work with couples is attachment informed as we look at past and current relationships to elucidate our most fulfilling ways of connecting.

In most cases, our deepest wounds have relational origins. Despite our attempts to cope with these hurts, oftentimes the very solutions we seek become wounds of their own, patterns that draw us further from the sources of our suffering and leave us feeling hopeless and confused. As a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, my aim is to create a safe and confidential relationship where, in time, the hurt can be found and even transformed. Whether you are seeking a brief or more in-depth treatment, from the beginning we would work collaboratively on a treatment plan sensitive to your unique situation and goals.

My work integrates a variety of modalities which are generated by a collaborative relationship with the client.
I believe that we were all born complete and whole, deserving of lives that are happy and healthy. The experience of being human is full of potential and it is also complicated and sometimes painful. There can be challenges and pitfalls along the way – sometimes making it difficult to flourish or have the lives and relationships we would ideally like. My goal as a therapist is to support my clients through a compassionate exploration of their experiences (present and past), paying close attention to the places where they may feel stuck as well as the places where they feel free.

Therapy can be a powerful and meaningful experience. I work with adults on issues of anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues , identity questions, family-of-origin matters and life transitions. I especially enjoy working with young adults and with folx from marginalized communities. I believe that change is achieved through the combination of developing insight into your emotions, thoughts and choices, and the practice of new skills and ways of relating to oneself and others. Our work can help you to feel better, heal emotional pain, increase self-understanding, improve relationships and cope more effectively.

In addition to working with depression and anxiety, I have a special interest in working with those going through various forms of life transitions, such as becoming pregnant or becoming a parent, ending of a relationship , and taking on the role of a caregiver for a loved one.
When faced with life's challenges and transitions, we experience a mixture of emotions, ranging from overwhelmed to deep sadness and anxiety. At times like these, it can be especially hard to find the space to pause, breathe fully, and stay connected with what truly matters in one's life. My approach is to offer a safe , compassionate space to stay centered through the various storms of life and the emotions they bring. Using evidence-based practices, I work to bring awareness to the values you hold dear and to stay grounded in those values while moving forward in life.

The relationship is everything. We aren't ourselves when we don't feel comfortable with someone. I understand this, and so my work centers on establishing a working relationship that fosters collaboration and mutual understanding. My motto is: "You are the expert on you." So I rely on you to help me understand your values and approach to life. When I have a sense of who you are (and of us as a team) we get to embark on identifying the patterns and pitfalls, so as to increase awareness and focus on making meaningful changes that are right for you.

During these uncertain times the vitality of our relationships are more important than ever. The added stress of isolation, anxieties, and fears of the unknown are only compounding the struggles in our relationships with our partners. Cabin fever may be putting pressure on previously unresolved issues or you may just be struggling in the moment to adjust to a new reality. I have found that with some focused attention on their relationship couples can actually thrive during this time!

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.
