I help individuals and couples to feel better about themselves and find relief from challenging times in life. I've seen how much difficulty can exist at certain times in life. However, I've also learned that even the most difficult problems can be overcome, and how this is possible.

Loss and/or abandonment early in life often lays the basis for a persons anxiety and depression.These difficult losses often are what make people stagnate in their lives; with fear of moving forward. Together,in therapy, we work towards exploring these attachment issues. I am particularly interested in how the loss of a mother during the formative years...until late 30's affects daughters. My work includes bereavement issues from all other losses.I treat depression and anxiety disorders and have an in-depth and empathic understanding of how families and individuals live with the intense stress of life.

I aim to help my patients lead lives that are fulfilled and meaningful. To do this, I work to understand the internal restrictions that may be keeping them from taking full possession of their own lives. In the process, painful symptoms are relieved. My clinical experience has repeatedly shown me that psychotherapy can help one become kinder to oneself, a better parent, a more sensitive partner, and more deeply gratified in one's career and pastimes. If you are interested in enhanced self-understanding and reduced suffering, I may be the therapist for you. I look forward to meeting you.

Why do people seek help? I think people in great pain have somehow lost their ability to navigate in the world. Depression, anxiety, and fear renders a person helpless and one cannot summon their old ways of being. Recent trauma or unresolved issues can suddenly alienate a person from themselves. Often people are wrestling with unexamined fears or emotions that have long been dissociated. In the safety of the therapeutic space, the client can confront that which is most difficult with the aim of once again feeling whole, thus able to pursue, with energy and pleasure, their work and relationships.

I consider therapy a cooperative and interactive process where I can offer my experience in listening carefully and find a path to use your strengths to feel better in your relationships, your work and your body. Therapy should be a safe place in which to untangle depression and anxiety which may be situational or long term. Feeling troubled by relationships with our partners, young children, adult children, parents, work challenges, medical issues and many life changes may lead us to seek help. I have experience working with the painful experiences of abuse, trauma, and loss, whether recent or old.

Most people solve most problems on their own or with help from friends, but that doesn’t always work. Troubles mount up. Upheavals catch you unawares. “Go to” solutions can leave you empty-handed. Even planned changes can be disorienting - job changes, retirement, new relationships, going off to school, children leaving home. Sometimes people just need help coping, changing bad habits, or thinking through options. Other times people feel hemmed in by circumstances, or find they don’t recognize themselves in the life they lead and want to deepen their sense that the life they are living reflects their own values and choices.

While trusting and connecting with those close to us is something that tends to bring joy, vibrancy, and sense of belonging, the complexity inherent in important and intimate relationships can often leave us feeling thrown off course, irritated and unsure. In trying our best to "get back" what was once there - unspoken compromises become the nature of discourse that all too often leave us feeling stuck, misunderstood, and frustrated. As resentment builds, trust dwindles. As the crater of distance fills with frustration, the hope of reconnecting turns to blame.

I am a firm believer in encouraging positivity, bolstering self-efficacy, and cultivating independence in others. My typical client is a child, adolescent, or young adult (age 3 to 29) who may be struggling academically, socially, or with developing effective emotional coping skills. Often, the individuals I see have difficulty with attention, concentration, organization, and with meeting the daily demands required of them at school. I also offer much support to parents who may be frustrated with their attempts at connecting with their kids and who are in need of guidance relating to discipline techniques and behavior management.

As a licensed creative arts therapist (drama, art, music, movement, play. creative writing) my skills are especially suitable for clients who have been through levels of trauma (domestic violence, divorce, dating abuse, PTSD, grief and loss, depression, self-harm, anxiety. etc.). In addition, I work with high-functioning kids/teens on the autism spectrum. I have found that the visual and physical work of role-playing, scene-work, improvisation, simple drawings, and video work increases their skills to recognize facial cues and feelings. Through play, these clients build self-esteem, social skills, deepen their emotional range and gain empathy.
