Anxiety? Depression? Stress? Life Changes? With over thirty years of experience in private practice, I have noticed how sometimes long-standing behaviors can actually create personal problems, cause relationship difficulties, and undermine the achievement of life goals. Working together, we can explore and identify these behaviors and change them. Individual Therapy helps to build confidence as you begin to understand and take steps to modify personal challenges. Couples Therapy identifies and builds upon personal and relationships strengths to repair interpersonal distress. Group Psychotherapy enhances and deepens personal awareness so you improve your connections with others.

Life can leave us feeling depressed, anxious, angry, afraid or lost. While pain is a part of life, persistent suffering is a sign that something is wrong. Life can be better. I believe that people have the resilience and means and strength to makes changes in their lives. Sometimes childhood experiences continue to impact us as adults, leaving us with mistrust, dysfunctional relationships, shame or poor self-acceptance. Psychotherapy is a resource to help people heal, gain greater self -awareness and a sense of empowerment. I offer clinical expertise to help nurture insight into root issues behind current problems.

The approach taken respects each person's individuality and the work is done in ways that are suited to each person's style and personality. The frequency and duration of treatment depends on the unique needs of each person - for example, a person may be seeking short-term therapy to deal with a school or work transition, while another person may be seeking longer term treatment to understand longstanding emotional pain or a pattern of unsuccessful relationships.

Congratulations on taking this important step toward improving your life. I believe that in order to grow and make changes in their life, people need validation, support & practical skills. I strive to provide empathic, supportive & productive therapeutic relationships so you can feel safe while moving toward your goals. Each person's situation is unique and my therapy approach is designed to meet your individual needs. Many of my clients suffer from problems of emotional regulation (borderline personality, PTSD, depression, anxiety & bipolar) most effectively addressed by dialectical behavior therapy. However, no matter the approach, it is the healing energy created when two people sit together and mindfully focus on connection and healing that leads to healing and growth. Together we make that happen.
