Deep connections sustain and heal the human spirit. When we are deeply connected to ourselves, our values, our story, and our inner workings, we can thrive. When we are genuinely connected to others, to family, and to community, we can flourish. Often, however, disconnection and fracture prevent the kind of thriving that might be possible. Through my therapeutic approach, I aim to work collaboratively with clients to explore both areas of disconnection and suffering, as well as opportunities for re-connection, for the deepening of current connections, and for lasting change.

Though I see a range of client types, I find I am best suited to work with the black sheep. My clients often find it taxing, if not impossible, to function at high levels while carrying their stressors. I work with people to figure out what good looks like for them, and help them create a new, intentional, normal. My clients come to me stressed, anxious, depressed, traumatized, worried, and angry; and they are all on a path of healing and growth. I see all sexual orientations and genders in my practice.

I believe that in order to be healthy and happy, the individual must be focused on growth and change. If you are not healthy or happy, then change is needed. However, several factors complicate this simple truth. We give too much or allow our power to be stolen rather than exchanged; Fear, anger, and sadness can override logic and wisdom. How we act and think affects our experience of reality. I work clients to help increase their sense of self-direction, align their behaviors with their goals and replace the negative thoughts and behaviors with a more positive perspective.

I work primarily with women and couples who, on the outside, appear to have it all together. These people are often successful, high-functioning and high-achieving, highly motivated - and still their own worst critics. Does this sound like you? Perhaps on the inside you feel like a fraud, not good enough, or confused about your life direction. Perhaps there’s just one area of your life that you’d like to improve upon. Or maybe you want to get to know yourself better; to live more authentically and in line with your values and the image you work so hard to portray to the outside world.

It is natural to experience a range of emotions; some flooding us thoroughly, and others frozen at our core. Sometimes we all feel challenged by life itself. This is why it can be helpful to seek out a therapist. My counseling practice is focused on helping adults and teens who struggle with trauma, depression, anxiety, and chronic stress. The foundation of my practice is layered. In order to effectively work together, I believe that it is important to understand your past, as it informs your present. Much of our resilience stems from our interactions with attachment figures—It is necessary to consider the context of our life.

[UPDATE: I am now offering telehealth services via phone/videoconference to help patients experiencing isolation due to Coronavirus social distancing measures]. We often do not know what we want out of life. Our desire is inhibited by something we cannot name. Psychoanalysis goes beyond reducing symptoms to provide a unique space to listen to your desire, where you can let go of standards and think out loud without judgment. You can bring your history, your dreams, anything that comes to mind. As you speak freely, you will begin to live more freely. If therapy hasn’t worked for you, psychoanalysis can offer you something different.

Many people come to therapy feeling overwhelmed by anxiety, worry, and insecurity, frustrated with themselves for repeating patterns that get in the way of having meaningful relationships. When you’re feeling stuck and hopeless, it’s especially hard to feel compassion for yourself. One of the beautiful things about therapy is that it is a space where someone else can hold compassion and hope for you until you are able to hold it for yourself.
