2/8/2021- Hi there. At this time, we are limiting our operations to existing clients. If you’re a prospective client, feel free to submit your contact information so that we can let you know when we reopen this Spring. A few reasons our clients come to therapy: 1. "I'm tired all the time" 2. "I'm frustrated." 3. "My supervisor doesn’t know what he/she is doing!" 4. "I overthink everything." 5. "My partner does not listen to me.” There are many, many other reasons that people seek help. Please know that you are not alone. I cannot say it enough: You are not alone! We look forward to being helpful to you.

There is nothing like being listened to and understood on a deep level, with genuine interest and acceptance. This is what I strive to offer in therapy or analysis, as we explore together your hopes and dreams, your losses and regrets, your longings and fears. Many people come to therapy to free themselves from self-defeating patterns and the legacy of past traumas, so they can be more truly themselves in relation to others and live with greater satisfaction and meaning. My analytic training enables me to work intensively, and I enjoy incorporating experiential techniques like journaling, psychodrama, and art.

My approach in providing comprehensive, evidence-based Psychotherapy is genuine and transparent, while also creating a safe and inviting place to develop and nurture new skills. Through individualized, person-centered approaches to treatment, I believe that individuals can reach self-actualization and thrive. It is understood that life experiences can somehow separate us into many pieces, however we are able to develop the resiliency and courage to reintegrate and become whole again. The unique power of healing and personal growth through therapeutic intervention is a journey I am absolutely excited to share with you.

When I see a new patient for the first time, I try to assess what he or she wants from life or from what each person is struggling. I do this with individuals or parents so together so we can determine what is best for him or her or their child at the current time. Sometimes people want to work on one problem and then develop a curiosity about how their minds work. Often in those situations, I work more intensely and more frequency to search for what is meaning to people and how they wants to navigate in the world in a freer way.

Couples work is challenging and emotionally provocative. Feelings of frustration, pain, anger and discouragement alternating with relief, hopefulness, and excitement are common among couples who are trying to resolve their marital discord. Although each couple is unique the following principles hold true in treatment of the majority of partners. 1) A good marriage requires both spouses to psychologically separate from their family of origin and shift their primary love, loyalty to each other. An individual cannot fully participate in an interdepended relationship without being first an independent and autonomous person.
