Sometimes life events can leave us feeling disconnected, from ourselves and from others. You may find yourself sleeping too much, or too little. Aches and pain may be showing up in your body. Perhaps you are finding yourself playing out the same old patterns in your relationships and are wondering, “How did I get here?” Maybe you don’t feel quite like you are living life the way you dreamed you would.

We all need support to walk through our lives with purpose, power, and joy. It takes bravery to seek support, so welcome to the threshold of change. I work with children, adults, and families using play-based and trauma-informed therapy to support reflection, growth, and recovery. Together we can address behavioral issues, stressful transitions like divorce, grief, adoption, and birth, and the conflicts of identity. Using evidence-based strategies, I partner with adults, teens, and children across a spectrum of diagnoses and life experiences to remove barriers and build strengths.

If you, or someone you care about, is looking for an alternative to AA and '12-step' programs I encourage you to give me a call. Since the early 1990s I have been offering addictive behavioral counseling based on a sensible and practical cognitive-behavioral approach and SMART® Recovery. I view addictive habits and recovery as learned behaviors/habit patterns. 'Recovery,' stopping the addiction and living comfortably, is something one learns how to do. Stopping addictive habits is a means to an end --increasing satisfaction and enjoyment in one's life and reducing or eliminating self-inflicted discomfort and distress.

As a psychodynamic and attachment oriented therapist, I believe that the foundation of therapeutic treatment is a safe and supportive relationship between therapist and client. The process of treatment often uses the therapeutic relationship itself to uncover relational patterns from earlier in life that may be causing pain or dysfunction in the present day. By identifying the historical antecedent to a seemingly confusing or inappropriate emotional response, client and therapist are able to disrupt maladaptive patterns and choose new, more values congruent responses.

We often navigate emotional concerns but have difficulty naming and expressing them. Therapy can help clients gain clarity, learn healthy ways to express emotions, and cope with difficult emotions and circumstances. I offer a safe, supportive resource where clients no longer feel alone. Your feelings are valid and deserving of the care and attention that we sometimes fail to place as high priority in our busy lives.

Sometimes life creates change when we aren't ready. You may find that life transitions have left you feeling differently than you expected, or you're discovering things about yourself that you aren't sure what to do with. Sometimes loved ones change in ways that challenge us, and sometimes we grow and hope our loved ones will grow with us. Sometimes LGBTQIA+ identities have specific needs, particularly for couples and families adjusting to newly expressed identities and searching for a healthy, supportive dynamic. Unfortunately, coping with these unexpected changes usually isn't a smooth, easy, or pretty process.
