Let's invent together a way beyond your suffering or problematic repetitions. I use creative language play to release unconscious tensions manifesting as symptoms. In psychoanalysis you can elevate your agency by recognizing your own unfolding processes without the pressure to change. My attention will be focused on the linguistic and homophonous patterns of your unconscious as manifested in your speech, with the aim of distilling the suffering from your words and possibly producing a creative practice in its stead. To that end I will invite you to speak. I don't take insurance, but you may be able to use your OON benefits!

You have taken a brave and difficult first step by considering therapy. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, increased self judgement, or going through a stressful life transition, I am here for you. I believe that therapy is a commitment and an opportunity to invest in and explore our true selves. I believe change flourishes once a person feels seen and understood. My priority is ensuring that you feel safe and comfortable so that we can work together to reach your goals. We all need a safe space to process and work toward our full potential.
Life has been pretty wild lately. If you find yourself feeling totally lost or completely overwhelmed, you are not alone. Having an objective ear to talk to can be incredibly helpful and calming. Whether you are looking for a safe space to vent, or for someone to help you gain a new perspective, I'm ready to help you find your way. When you're ready to take that next step, e-mail me and we can get that conversation started.
Sometimes it just seems like we are going through life without direction. Sometimes we have never really been able to express who we are to another person. Sometimes we just feel lost. Whatever the reason, know that you don’t have to go through each day feeling this way. Through counseling, you can learn what the next steps might be for you and how to manage your emotions. I will be empathetic and honest. The therapeutic alliance can be such a powerful force to help you see your issues in a different light.
Are you a parent looking for support for your child? Is your child diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and/or other Neurodiversity? I believe that children of all abilities should have access to counseling and that children do not have to be neurotypical in order to get support. I work with children and their families to address a variety of needs including poor coping skills, limited ability for expressing feedings, poor self esteem, difficulties with limits/boundaries, highly sensitive children, and divorce. I also work with parents to build a strong and secure connection with their child.
My clinical expertise is addiction/substance abuse treatment (both user and impacted family members) as I've worked in both inpatient & outpatient settings. I am very familiar with 12-step recovery but it is not my only tool. I can provide evaluation/assessment and potential referral to rehab if needed. My style is hands on & solution-oriented -- my goal is that you leave our sessions feeling empowered, motivated and have more coping skills to manage your life. There is no reason why you should continue to suffer or struggle; you deserve to feel better & develop confidence in yourself.
With over 25 years of experience in this field, I am unique and eclectic in my approach. I particularly enjoy working with clients who have been seen as "difficult" by others or who have been dissatisfied with counseling in the past. I recognize the hard work that goes into bringing about change, but still feel the overall experience in counseling should be enjoyable. I am passionate about my work and try to make myself as accessible as possible. I welcome the opportunity to discuss your issues with you in a totally free/phone consultation.

There is a vast range of experiences, life-events, and challenges that can quickly overwhelm our abilities to effectively cope. The counseling process provides a path to address these issues, make positive changes and improve our overall quality of life. I have helped clients navigate a diverse range of issues, from managing daily stressor to more complex struggles, such as personality disorders and serious mental illness. It is my aim to help people through this process by providing a supportive and validating environment where positive transformation healing and can occur.
Life can be stressful, overwhelming and unpredictable. Although we try our best to cope, most of us were not taught healthy coping skills to navigate life's challenges. We tend to ignore, numb or try to solve problems ourselves, rejecting offers of help from others. By the time we seek help, we are often in a place of deep emotional pain. To help you feel immediate relief, I will offer you tools and techniques to walk away with in the first session. My down to earth approach to counseling is intended to help you feel comfortable from the start. I bring a relaxed yet directive approach to therapy, and will be active in each session.
PLEASE NOTE: I am currently not accepting new clients. Sometimes life presents challenges that seem overwhelming.

Life can be rough and its easy to get into a place where one may feel overwhelmed or stuck.
