Beginning therapy can be scary and intimidating, but also hopeful. Discussing your wishes and uncertainties in session can promote clarity and lead to positive changes in thinking and behavior that are necessary to improve circumstances and relationships. Action is required for positive life changes to occur. It isn't always easy figuring out what action to take or what changes to make. Therapy is a safe place to explore these thoughts and feelings. Small shifts can lead to large improvements in mood and relationships. Please reach out with questions or to schedule an initial consultation.

You may be feeling sad, anxious, overwhelmed, or confused. You may be experiencing a difficult life transition or feel that something is missing in your life. It is important to find a therapist with whom you have a good fit, a feeling that your therapist "gets" you in order to develop the trust necessary in a therapeutic relationship. I have over 35 years of experience helping people in a safe, non-judgmental environment. It is through feeling understood that we come to understand ourselves better.

I love "pushy parents," who feel as though they live in IEP meetings, and on the phone with healthcare providers. I love parents who push for their children, because who else will? Similarly, I love working with young people who have "behavioral problems," "worry too much," have "big emotions," or struggle socially. My clients are typically too smart, too creative and under-appreciated. Parents who come to my office often wonder: a) "will this help?" b) "will you understand my child?" and "c) if you understand my kid, will you then judge me?" My answers are a) "yes. It can even be fun" b) "that's my main goal" c) "not a chance."

In these times of uncertainty, I am here to help. I have years of experience and am able to work with you virtually. Call me! Listening for what is not said is often as important as what is said. No one therapeutic approach suits every client's need, so I tailor my approach based on what's best for the individual. My success with sober clients and others suffering from addictive disorders comes from my willingness to help them navigate the realities of life. Sometimes psychotherapy alone cannot cure mood disorders, just as drugs for depression and anxiety are less effective without concurrent psychotherapy.

Grief comes out of nowhere and slams you - hard. Whether you've recently lost a family member, career, your health, or someone or something else that you hold dear, the loss can knock you off-center. You used to manage your life pretty well, but now you can barely keep things together. You're distracted and irritable. You want to get back to normal, but you don't know how to get through the intense feelings that threaten to overwhelm you. And if your child or teen has also been affected by this loss, it's even more difficult to envision what "normal" might look like for your family, or how to get there.

I work primarily with people who have been negatively impacted, often in ways that do not seem significant, or that are not entirely acknowledged by society and culture as important or meaningful. These include early attachment issues, relational dilemmas, and environmental impacts due to over-sensitization. Through having worked across many domains, I have the capacity to help people understand their own internal dynamics much more clearly--in themselves and in their interrelations with others--so that the conscious changes they are wanting to make in their lives have the potential and possibility to actually manifest.

If I can provide you with a safe space to openly and honestly share your story, then our work has more than just begun.

Life will sometimes nudge and then shout at us when we need to pause and look within ourselves. It often comes at times when we feel sad, hurt, anxious, or depressed. It may be at times when relationship struggles, self-doubt, or loss arise. Whether you are returning to therapy or preparing to enter it for the first time, with this step change is already underway. As I see it, the therapy process is a journey to resolve painful experiences, gain insight, and develop strengths and new abilities, all which help to navigate life’s challenges.

Being assertive seems easy in theory. You tell someone what you're thinking, feeling, or wanting. You express yourself in a clear, firm, and respectful way. You set clear physical and emotional boundaries. Unfortunately, if you've experienced childhood trauma, abuse, neglect, or harsh punishment, being assertive can be really difficult. You may fear upsetting other people. You may fear coming across as 'aggressive.' You may have a hard time expressing your thoughts and feelings.

Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum.
