These days, we're all huddling under COVID's shadow of uncertainty. You may be feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, and less tolerant than 'before'. You didn't used to feel so disorganized, disoriented, and discouraged in pre-virus days. Perhaps some symptom you'd forgotten about or pushed aside feels newly offensive. I am a psychoanalytic therapist and my ideal client is ready, curious, persistent, possibly angry, sad, and frightened, but willing to wonder with me about the mind's mysteries and its capacities to tilt, stymie, support, inspire, and surprise you. Is the unconscious friend or foe? Might now be a time to investigate?

I believe we all are born with the capacity to live full and rewarding lives. In life's many challenges we sometimes can get to a place where we feel overwhelmed or "stuck". Counseling can help get you back on track with facing those challenges and creating the life you want. I can provide a unique safe space to explore your difficult feelings and experiences. That space has the power to be tremendously healing--and within it, I can help you discover new ways of relating to your thoughts, your feelings and the world around you.

I believe therapy can hold the key to processing the suffering that life brings. Often when there is trauma, change or transitions in life it can cause feelings of helplessness, confusion and despair. I believe processing these events and how they are connected to your thoughts, feelings and actions can bring about self-insight and healing. My approach is client centered and strength based utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy and cognitive processing therapy. My goal is to walk alongside you and facilitate a safe place for you to engage with the work of untethering yourself to the things that no longer serve you.

Sometimes feelings and behaviors become obstacles to accessing your strength. If you don't accept yourself as you are, you can't change--a paradox, but true. Self-acceptance can be difficult, especially with history of abuse, trauma, or opression in which shame/guilt become integral to your sense of self. Destructive behavior, in whatever form, has its own logic, but is understandable given your history. We cope in ways that serve to protect ourselves in childhood--serving a useful purpose back then. But now, they prevent you from having stable, close relationships and feeling an empowered sense of self.

You’re comfortable with seeing someone online, because you use a computer or your smart phone all the time, and it just makes more sense with your busy schedule. You’re not necessarily looking for long-term therapy, but you know that you could benefit from someone to check-in with on a regular basis… a counselor who is solution-oriented and future-focused. You're looking for existential, dialectical behavioral, psychodynamic, narrative, cognitive behavioral, and/or family-centered counseling.
