My goal is to help both individuals and couples become "unstuck' from old patterns and develop the tools to live a more satisfying life. I will work with you to help find ways to cope with life's many challenges, including self-esteem issues, emotional distress, anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, and life transitions. Identifying the origins of your struggles is only one component of therapy. From there, we will work together to develop the skills necessary for you to navigate through these challenges. This can be accomplished by assisting you to change old behavior patterns, improve communication skills and deal more effectively with stress.

I have been providing individual, couples, and group psychotherapy for over 25 years. Typically, people enter therapy because they are having problems in their relationships. Successful psychotherapy must focus on helping develop more fulfilling and substantial interpersonal connections. Facilitating a client’s capacity to lead a richer and more emotionally balanced life is the objective. The therapeutic relationship is the road traveled, and enables the client to understand the choices they have made, the associated positive and negative consequences, and the freedom to make new, more effective and satisfying life decisions.

We all carry around a metaphorical bag of stuff with us. That bag is filled with our thoughts, feelings, experiences; everything that makes us who we are. In therapy, we unpack your bag together. We explore each item, get curious about it. How did that item get in the bag? What is the impact of carrying it around with you? Together, we make meaning of your items. Some items you will decide are essential. Others are weighing you down, and preventing you from being your authentic self. I help you decide what you want to do with those items and then figure out how to do it.
