In therapy, I act as the facilitator for the process of mending the relationship between mind and body.
What if you could... Free up the mental energy you burn through worrying about the future or regretting the past? Feel calmer in your body without resorting to substances, medications, or excessive exercise? Rebound more easily from stress, disappointment, or conflict? I emphasize helping my clients develop increased emotional and mental resiliency.

Rather than focus on particular issues, I tend to focus on developing a certain kind of relationship.
Many people come to me wondering why they're unhappy, anxious, or unable to find fulfillment. The problem may seem obvious but a solution impossible. The same painful experiences repeat themselves, but why? And how to change them? If we meet, I will try to understand you as fully as I can and to help you come to grips with your problems. In doing so, you may discover, as sometimes happens, that there are ways to experience yourself and others that are genuinely different from what you've known thus far.

Together we will explore relationship patterns, and help you communicate your feelings, needs, and desires to your partner in a warm/respectful manner.
Do you ever feel alone? Do you feel there's more to everything than this? Within every person exists enormous power. At some point in our lives we face a "void." The void is the symbolic space we create for whatever is missing in our lives; what we imagine will make us feel complete. We spend massive amounts of energy attempting to fill this void with negative relationships, substances, money, possessions, etc. Yet somehow we end up feeling empty.

Are you disillusioned and asking yourself how your working relationship got this bad or hard? You and your business partner had a great business idea and decided to launch a business together. It seemed so promising at first. Even more so if your partner is also your friend, sibling, or spouse. You knew there would be ups and downs. Now that you are mid-stream, the business is bringing out the stressed and critical sides of both of you more than ever. It feels overwhelming and at times, unbearable. And yet, you are under the gun to make it work.

My specialties include working with depression, anxiety, and relationship issues, as well as issues surrounding marriage and divorce.
I've worked successfully with adults and adolescents for 20+ years. Many therapists are seasoned and technically sound, but to many clients, something still feels lacking. I receive repeated feedback regarding clients' appreciation of my nonjudgemental support and guidance, my ability to understand the great shame people feel about their relationships and lives. I have a knack for forming trusting relationships with teens, allowing them to experience open communication, which, over time, tends to replicate itself within the family system. I can help you with feelings of insecurity, anxiety, depression. I understand addiction issues and treatment strategies that work.

In my approach to therapeutic relationship I bring compassion, warmth and thoughtfulness that help my clients understand the source of their unhappiness, their unmet needs and find the ways to meet those needs.
We all experience difficulties at some point in our lives- this is part of being human. Some people are able to move on and some get "stuck" for reasons that are not always clear. Psychotherapy offers an opportunity to explore these reasons in a safe, accepting environment and inspires personal growth. Therapy itself can be short (a few sessions) or long term, and in successful cases its positive impact lasts a lifetime. For the last 20 years I've helped individuals who struggled with depression, anxiety, relationship or parenting issues, low self-esteem and more to reach their goals.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.
