In my 45 plus years of practice, I have found that most patients, before coming to see me may have tried to the best of their abilities to solve their problems. They may have consulted other psychotherapists or other allied professionals before coming to see me. The central task is for us to identify the nature of their psychological puzzle, and to find ways to collaborate in finding solutions to them. I have a particular interest in people who may have neurocognitive deficits. Also, I have an interest in children and adolescents whose parents are in the divorce process.

We often get in places where we feel “stuck” or think “this is just how it is going to be.” The demands of managing academic/professional careers, relationships with friends and family, and emotional difficulties often result in patterns of self-doubt, insecurities, and negative self-worth that leave us feeling alone and overwhelmed. My goal is to provide you the tools and support to see that life can be better and that change IS possible. I will help you capitalize on your already-existing strengths while highlighting patterns of thinking and behaviors that may no longer be helpful in order to live the fulfilling life you want.

I believe that healing can occur within the context of a trusted relationship. I work with adults and families to help people better understand the things that are getting in the way of living a full, productive, and satisfying life. That could be a child’s struggle with emotional regulation, a parent’s difficulty setting limits or understanding their child’s behavior, an adult who struggles to develop and sustain intimate relationships, or a teenager who feels overwhelmed by all that is on their plate.

In therapy, you will have a private place to examine what troubles you, and you won't have to do it alone. I can help you explore your difficulties, come to understand yourself more fully and make changes in your daily life and relationships if that is what is needed. Many of the people I see in therapy are struggling with depression, anxiety, communication problems, loneliness, grief, and life transitions. I have seen individual adults and teens, couples and families move from feeling blocked, frustrated, depleted to a place of some resolution - finding adaptive solutions or greater sense of peace.

During difficult times, I work with children and families to address social,emotional, or developmental challenges. I use a combination of play and talk therapy to provide relief from painful emotional symptoms and foster growth and resilience. I guide and support parents by sorting through the many questions and decisions that arise when parenting a child with emotional difficulties. Together, we will find new ways of resolving conflicts.

Children, teens, and adults each approach their problems from differing levels of life-experience and developmentally varied problem-solving skill sets. They also have differing neurological availability to the resources and strategies that their brains can employ. At Collaborators, Inc., we work with people where they are in time, place, development, neurology, and life space. Hearing people process their experiences in this way, and joining with them in making sense of challenges, relationship issues, conflicts, and family history issues makes for a context where people can find new ways to explore their world with confidence.
