I love my work as a couples' counselor. I'm a Gottman Seven Principles Program Educator. I have over 20 years experience doing individual and couples therapy, and 15 years in private practice. I help couples improve communication, rekindle intimacy and improve awareness of patterns which may result in defensiveness, or feeling "not heard" by your partner. In individual therapy, I create a warm environment where my clients feel comfortable to discuss their issues. Together we develop goals & strategies for cultivating positive changes. In couples work, we address problematic communication to change those patterns from ineffective to effective habits & behaviors.

I strive to create a safe, respectful space in which we can work together to understand the current problems and conflicts impacting your life, and identify self-defeating patterns that keep you from reaching your full potential. We will watch to see how and when these patterns occur in the therapeutic process itself and work to trace problems back to their roots in earlier periods of your life. By gaining a deeper understanding of ourselves, we attain greater freedom to choose how we wish to live, to strengthen our relationships and find joy in life.

I approach my clients with interest and compassion, creating a relationship that fosters deeper self-awareness, personal effectiveness, and meaningful change. The relationship developed in psychotherapy is an important resource, because it offers an opportunity to directly examine and explore these issues. I work with you to explore how your family history, life experience, and current stressors contribute to the issues that bring you to therapy. For people confronting infertility and other medical issues, I offer support with decision-making, stress reduction, and working through feelings of loss. Third-Party Reproduction services are also available, including donor evaluations and recipient consultations.

I am a psychologist and psychoanalyst, in practice for 18 years. I see individuals, adolescents, and couples. Psychotherapy is, as I see it, an opportunity to address unresolved issues and conflicts as they arise in the here-and-now of life and in the therapy relationship. For this reason, it's important to look at the various ways and places where symptoms show up and work to understand the underlying meanings of these. This approach can take some time but its rewards include a depth of self knowledge and a more rich and meaningful life with oneself and with others.

I think counseling is always useful, even when there's nothing "wrong." We get a lot of chances to go, go, go but not a lot to slow down and reflect. Usually it takes some crisis of feeling or relationship to tell us it's time. I see those crises as opportunities, doorways to deeper understanding. And because we're not fixed individuals, they come and go as we change and grow.

I have had the privilege of witnessing people undergo the slow, extremely subtle and remarkable journey of healing and self-transformation. This process of psychological growth is astoundingly complex, multilayered, circular and even mysteriously numinous in its unfolding. My philosophy as a therapist is primarily on core transformation rather than merely symptom management and needless to say, I strongly believe in the centrality of the therapeutic relationship as a significant healing agent. Moving towards our wholeness necessitates the courage to first move into the wounded parts that we all have as members of the human species.

I firmly believe that growth has two paths. To truly flourish, one must balance a desire for change with a true willingness to accept oneselve for who you are. A treatment that embraces this idea is Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and it's the core philosophy I use with my patients every day. In treatment, DBT concepts focus on changing things that are getting in the way of living the life you want, while accepting yourself unconditionally. The focus is to develop a life worth living. My program offers a full finality DBT which includes individual therapy, group skills training, and phone consultation.
