Did you know that 90% of the people who have had previous therapy do not remember what they learned? I have a sign in my office that says "What did you learn today?" I will work in partnership with you as a therapist and teacher. I work with women and men age 18+ who have depression, anxiety, trauma, self esteem or relationship issues. I will ask your goals for therapy. We will look at three major issues: (1) Both negative and positive patterns in your life; (2) the context of your environment and its impact on you; and (3) life's bumps in the road.

Do you wish to be happy again, and get back control of your life? Has your self esteem plummeted so that daily functioning has become difficult? Has anxiety, depression and anger taken control of you and won't let you function in peace? My ideal adult client is the multitasking adult, often juggling multiple tasks but are unable to cope with their own anger, anxiety, sadness, or stress which seem to be controlling their lives. My ideal adolescent client is one who is dealing with impulsivity, anger, anxiety, peer relations, self esteem issues or are just too depressed to pay attention to their important last years of school.

We all have a story and I believe that we all have the ability to rewrite that story. We can choose to be the victim of our circumstances or we can choose to be the victor.

It is common to feel frustrated and misunderstood at times within our significant relationships, particularly with an intimate partner. When we repeatedly feel unheard and blamed, feelings of resentment may build, contributing to chronic feelings of rupture and disconnection. Over time, this dynamic can become emotionally and physically exhausting. What once felt like a perfect union, may start feeling like a pattern of never-ending conflict. Many couples can fall into this frustrating cycle of miscommunication, feeling misunderstood and resentment.

My client-centered, strength-based approach empowers and motivates my clients to direct the pace and trajectory of therapy. I assist my clients with identifying their goals for treatment, as well as the constraints preventing them from achieving them. As the therapeutic process unfolds, we work together to determine how to remove the constraints—and sometimes explore how they got there in first place. I am knowledgeable about and comfortable with a wide range of therapeutic models and interventions, all of which offer useful tools for understanding how problems originate, as well as how to effect positive change here and now.

We, as human beings, have our habitual way to think, feel, and behave which may not always help us cope well. We may feel stuck in the past, fearful for the unknown future, and not being able to be present in the moment. We are not able to change the past and we cannot live in the future because future is delusional and non-existent. The present is the only time that we can do something to make a change and feel better. We do not need to deal with a struggle once we stop fighting against it and begin to practice acceptance and let go of the attachment to our habitual pattern so as to respond with a mindful and non-judgmental mind.
