I am glad you've decided to 'take the leap' and get support. At some point in our lives, most of us find ourselves caught in unproductive habits or patterns that are difficult to change. We are often hard on ourselves, but most people change more easily with support and compassion. I'm happy to offer that. For more than 20 years I have helped adults and young adults with a range of concerns (anxiety, depression,compulsive sexual behaviors, and painful childhood experiences) Let's see if I can help you.

Psychotherapy is this culture's way to help people address feelings of emotional and behavioral pain, loss, failure and self-disruption. Clients come to me seeking relief from emotional pain and behaviors that don't work to accomplish what is sought. Often the belief is that "I am defective or damaged" when, in fact, the truth is that we all get stuck in beliefs, attitudes, assumptions, and judgments and their related feelings and behaviors that may have once worked but no longer do. My role as therapist is to connect, understand, empathize, suggest, and -- occasionally -- leverage and confront.

Patients with cognitive, emotional, and behavioral challenges benefit from a variety of cognitive behavioral, neurobehavioral, and psychophysiological modalities. Patients with such conditions as emotional and physical trauma, chronic pain, addictions, brain injuries and disorders (autism, Asperger's, ADD/ADHD, motor and balance challenges, for example), sleep disorders, anxiety, and depression are treated. Individuals with neurological, autoimmune, metabolic, endocrinological, and other complex medical conditions find that the treatment modalities promote healing.

Being a human can be really hard sometimes. Maybe it’s hard because there’s an area in our lives where we struggle, like in our careers or relationships. Perhaps, we’ve experienced some painful times that we haven’t fully healed from or find ourselves engaging in problematic behaviors. Whatever our struggles, I’ve found that psychotherapy can help reduce our suffering and help connect us to the joy of being alive.
