"If you struggle with stress or anxiety, then you know the toll that this can take on the rest of your life—that all-too familiar feeling of being completely overwhelmed. This may be impacting your dating life, relationships with your partner or children, or your well-being at school or work—and the tendency to compare yourself to others only makes you feel worse. If this sounds like you, I can help. Together, we will build a strong therapeutic relationship that supports your goals and priorities. By working through old patterns that aren't serving you anymore, you can begin to approach the next day feeling lighter and less burdened."

Maybe anger or jealousy that you cannot rationalize? Ever want to call in sick, stay in bed, maybe even quit your job just so you don't have to face the shame of letting others down?"

Have you been giving your all to everyone and everything around you and wondering when are you going to get something back? Do you look at yourself in the mirror sometimes and say I don't like myself anymore? Have you been noticing that the things that are most important to you get the least amount of time energy and nurturing?"

"Are you tired of "reacting" and not feeling good about yourself? Is your past controlling you in the present in ways that aren't serving you? When we are "hijacked" by our past experiences we lose the ability to "choose" how we want to respond. This affects how we feel physically and emotionally; which can make us feel depressed, anxious, shameful. This in turn impacts the quality of our interpersonal relationships. It doesn't have to be that way. I see therapy as a relational and collaborative process that supports wellbeing on mental, physical and spiritual levels."

""The best way out is always through." This famous Robert Frost quote is at the core of my approach. When we get stuck -- in a rut at work, in a stormy relationship, in a lukewarm marriage, with our children -- we suffer but are often unwilling to go to the heart of the trouble. Sometimes, we're not even aware of what the true issue is. All we can do is try to avoid the pain, skirt problems, even pretend we are fine. We are blocked by fear -- another word for anxiety. Together, we can walk slowly through that fear, and get to the other side."

"For the past decade or so, I've built my practice based on a specialty in what many people consider the "darker" side of humanity, self-injury. For reasons I don't quite understand myself, I am drawn to these individuals. I am inspired by their creativity, moved by their self-awareness, and awed by their survival instinct. They've taught me more about human psychology than I ever could have learned in grad school. Through the years, I have been known to argue that self-injuring kids and adults are probably the most misunderstood group of people in our community."

"Are you seeking help for a child or teen who is struggling emotionally, displaying challenging behaviors, experiencing difficulties in school or in personal relationships? I have over 30 years experience treating children exposed to trauma, whether from family conflict, divorce, exposure to violence, bullying, alienation, accidental injury, or abuse. When children experience trauma, they can become detached from their bodies, numbed to emotion, and stuck in repetitive trauma memories. The work (and play) of therapy is to assist them in reconnecting to those parts of their Self that have "shut down" so that the process of healing can begin."
