"Welcome to my page! I am mindful of how expensive therapy can be and I offer an affordable sliding scale. My approach as a psychodynamically trained psychologist is to create an atmosphere of safety and empathy to help you feel at ease. I will work with you to unfold and rework your deep seated beliefs. These beliefs form out of experiences throughout your life, especially in childhood, and are often maladaptive, limiting, and impede your functioning, causing noticeable symptoms. Furthermore, they may get in the way of achieving your desired goals, and negatively impact your self-esteem and ability to cope with stress. "

"Everyone has an innate ability to enjoy a life balanced with love, work and play. When long-standing issues or unexpected stressors hinder this ability, we need to grow and heal. Family and friends are often supportive, but at times we need someone who listens without letting his/her own needs interfere with our finding the true path to our healing. In psychotherapy, your immediate experience and what is not said, as well as your spoken words are heard. This full listening allows psychotherapists to keep all of your concerns, desires and anxieties in mind."

No matter what brings you to therapy, it is my belief that a trusting relationship between client and therapist is the starting point for progress and is essential to achieving long-lasting change.

"Many of us have gone through experiences that leave us feeling stuck, unmotivated, or without hope for change. The promise of psychotherapy is that it offers a path that illuminates the conscious and unconscious limiting beliefs we unknowingly come to identify with. It allows us a framework where insight becomes possible - and the opportunity for a relationship that is dedicated to knowing you deeply. In this sense, I believe we are partners working to understand your motivations, fears, and deepest hopes so that you can feel a greater sense of freedom and empowerment in your life and in your future."

This curiosity about relationships continues to inform my approach to psychotherapy. I believe that much emotional pain stems from difficulties in developing or maintaining fulfilling relationships.

If we choose to accept the invitation of our symptoms and our pain, we may discover that they can be life's unique way of getting our attention ~ drawing us into a deeper engagement and collaboration with our authentic self. Symptoms invite us to consider what needs shifting, shedding, grieving, loving, embracing; what is true, meaningful, creative, and life affirming.

"No matter how successful we are, we sometimes sabotage ourselves so it can take more than "trying harder" or exerting "will power" to break free. Changing conscious beliefs doesn't always work because the underlying causes of blocking ourselves are often rooted in our unconscious. Psychotherapy provides a nurturing and caring relationship where you can safely explore your unconscious at your own pace. Our relationship can allow you to be deeply seen, heard, and felt which leads to greater self-reflection, awareness, and insight. This often results in feeling increased aliveness, enjoying more fulfilling relationships, and living a richer more creative life."
