I was also selected for a postdoctoral fellowship through the American Psychoanalytic Association.
I'm a clinical psychologist practicing with those who suffer from depression, anxiety, obsessions, anger, aloofness, issues of identity and intimacy, difficult life circumstances and many other problems. While I value knowledge about psychopathology, I find a purely diagnosis-based approach to be insufficient. Instead, we can be curious together about those factors which underlie and perpetuate your particular suffering. This process of exploration and discovery can only happen in a safe and confidential relationship. It is always a great privilege when someone chooses to reveal themselves to me on deeply personal levels.

Sadness, grief and worry are normal human experiences. However, when they endure for long periods of time or when you are overwhelmed by the effects of stress or trauma, if you have difficulty sleeping or concentrating or you feel hopeless or helpless, then it may be time to visit a skilled therapist.

Few of us make it through childhood without having experienced trauma of one form or another. Often times, the adaptations that we make in order to best survive early life challenges, lead to patterns of belief and action which get in the way of us finding freedom, happiness, and fulfillment as adolescents and adults. Every person deserves an opportunity to grow to their greatest potential. Therapy is a facilitated process of increasing awareness of obstacles to growth and supporting transformation.

My early training and work with young children and their parents prepared me for my current work treating adults and couples; many of the struggles these families had centered around bonding and attachment. Today, most of my adult patients face relationship issues rooted in early life experiences. During psychotherapy treatments, I help my patients understand the value of working through early emotional losses so they can mature and enjoy healthy adult relationships.

Often times there are aspects of ourselves that we ignore, or push away to avoid experiencing pain or emotions that can feel unbearable. Pushing away parts of ourselves has an impact on our ability to connect with who we are as a whole person. My approach in therapy involves looking at all of these parts within our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual zones and examine the way they interact with one another. I work in partnership with my clients to help them discover; their path, what's important to them, and find their truest self.

Reality check. Life really isn't one big happy party. Stuff happens. Bad stuff. Sometimes, really bad stuff that shakes you to the core, leaving a sense of loss and disconnection from the things you love. At the other end, are the little bumps along the way. The hiccups that take you out of the comfort zone temporarily and just need a little smoothing. Hopefully, that's where most of life happens. If not, therapy may help. Wherever you fall on the spectrum of life's challenges and whatever your age, let's work together to get you closer to a happy, healthy, fulfilling life.

Psychotherapy can be an opportunity for healing and transformation. When life seems to be stagnant, painful or overwhelming, a therapist can offer solace, guidance and a container for the psychological process. I have spent several years accompanying others on the journey through healing and have a unique style of working with people. I seek to offer a non-judgmental place to work through whatever is causing pain in the life of the clients I treat.

At Turning Leaves we know firsthand just how hard it can be to change attitudes and behaviors from the self-defeating and unfulfilling to the completely self-honoring and rewarding. Especially when big life transitions are involved, like early recovery, an approaching empty nest or learning how to manage attachment issues when a person defines their worth through the perceived role they have been filling within relationships. This is where we face the NOW WHAT and WHAT’S NEXT when everything else is the same; the neighborhood, the home, the job, the bills, etc. How about your desires that seemingly go unattended? Like feeling heard in a conversation, valid in your opinions, and worthy of your needs and wants. And if you are like me, the just knowing how to articulate what that even looks like for you in itself is a challenge! What about curbing those impulsive yearnings that we know won’t fix our issues, but we do them anyway like; eating every cookie on the plate; not eating at all to jump-start weight loss; downing a few drinks to take the edge off; going on a shopping adventure; anything, honestly, that will keep the thoughts of how our lives are lacking, out of the present.
