I utilize a variety of approaches to address and resolve isues. An approach must fit the individual as well as the problem. I work with adolescents, adults and families. I am certified in Cognitive/Behavioral therapy, short term therapy, as well as numerous other modalities. I work with many diagnoses including OCD, Bipolar Disorder, depression, loss/grief, ADD, ADHD and panic disorders. Occasionally there may not be a formal diagnosis-the problem may be one of learning how to more effectively communicate. Various techniques are addressed to help people strengthen relationships through words.

"Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes." - C.G. Jung. The process of self-reflection can both be illuminating and freeing. By shining the light of awareness on that which is unknown, you are on the path to personal growth and unlocking your innate potential. Do you feel stuck and overwhelmed? Do you desire balance within your own being? Or as if you are merely existing rather than living the life you truly wish? Taking the first step and reaching out for help is truly an exercise in courage.

Everyone needs someone to talk to during life's difficult moments. Family and friends may not know what to say or do to help; leaving you feeling alone and misunderstood. Sometimes the things we do to try to help ourselves cope like self-harm, impulsive behaviors, turning to alcohol and illegal substances are not always the best solutions. Together we'll develop tools and coping skills to make positive change and live a happier life.

Many people enter therapy concerned that they will have to make dramatic changes in their lives to find relief. I believe that therapy is not dramatically changing who we are, but rather looking at how our perceptions of ourselves and others create unfulfilling experiences. I think my role as a therapist is to work with each individual to identify their strengths and enhance what is already working for them while examining the patterns that keep them from living life to its fullest.
