My patients all want a happier and more fulfilling life. Some know where to start while others do not. In turn, I believe most people are doing their best, with the tools they have, for themselves and those they care about. The will is there - we just have to figure out the way. This may mean adapting old tools, acquiring new ones, or both. We do that with a mixture of Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) and Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT) therapy. Along the way, we identify each person's values that give their life meaning and purpose. These inform big decisions but also moment-to-moment actions.

The experience of trauma and loss changes your entire world view. Tomorrow no longer seems promised or predictable. The past is no longer just the past; at times, the past feels like the present. The fragility of life and closeness of death is now undeniable. What seemed important to you has changed entirely. Meanwhile, others around you are focused on things that seem petty and material, as they plan for a future they assume is certain. As a result, connecting with others becomes difficult and you can find yourself alone. You can feel like you are an alien on the planet you used to call home.

I will work with you to capitalize on your strengths and help you identify and move beyond unhelpful mental and behavioral patterns lurking in your blind spots. Rather than talk endlessly about your problems, we will instead use various empirically supported techniques to step back from your problems and explore new behavioral and belief options that better correspond to your key goals and values. Then you'll practice these new perspectives and strategies at home in your real life until they feel more natural. **Please phone me first as I do not always have daily email access.

I use a cognitive behavioral approach (CBT) with a systemic lens to always consider the context in which a person lives. I believe that individuals are shaped by their experiences, as well as their interactions with the significant people and systems in their lives, and we have to take that context into account when addressing your problems to create the change you want to see.

Our unique histories, family dynamics, inherited beliefs, and learned social roles compound to create rich personalities, but can also create subtle barriers to growth. I believe that the most effective way to heal old wounds and develop new strengths is in relationship to other people, and have faith in the potential for the therapeutic relationship to be a vehicle for deep insight and transformation. I work with adults and adolescents with histories of trauma, who are facing major life transitions, struggling with anxiety and depression, who are dealing with relationship discord or who want to explore their full potential.
