Some concerns that bring people to me are their experience of loneliness, depression, and anxiety; feelings of worry, emptiness, and sadness; a search for connection and meaning in relationships and work; life transitions; perfectionism; self-doubt; relationship difficulties; divorce; searching for life direction and a sense of purpose; loss and grief; and exploration of identity.

My first priority as your therapist is to provide an environment in which you can speak freely about your concerns while I listen and reflect back to you in a non-judgemental and compassionate way. You may need new coping skills, new perspectives or a way to heal beyond old difficulties that remain unresolved. I will help you clarify what your intentions are and help you to be more compassionate with yourself during the process. One of the goals is to be more content and more at peace with yourself and in your relationships with others.

I have been a licensed psychotherapist for twenty plus years. In the past ten years, I have been certified in Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, EMDR, and use Comprehensive Resource Model, Internal Family Systems, Energy Medicine, and Emotional Freedom Technique. Integrating these modalities has been life changing for my clients when healing from trauma, depression, and anxiety. We all have experiences in our past that have created coping mechanisms that can now prevent us from having the relationships, success, joy and happiness that we are meant to experience.

***ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS*** I believe that there is no "single" treatment that works best for everyone. I have found that the most effective therapy is when it is tailored to the unique needs of each client. We will spend time becoming acquainted with one another and arriving at a shared understanding of your treatment goals. My practice focuses on creating space in which transformation is possible and old patterns can shift into something that allows for growth and possibility. We will work on the issues that you bring to the table, and together, we will carve out a road map that will help lead you to a more authentic self.

In reality, every therapy relationship is different. Some people just want to be heard, a place to unload from their dealings with life. Others want more active guidance to grow to the next level or to reduce suffering. I am pragmatic and try to meet each person's specific needs. That may mean simply creating a time and place to decompress; working on practical solutions to life problems; or looking within at the imbalances - anxiety, depression, addiction - that create unhappiness. I am expert in meditation and related spiritual practices that heal inner conflict and restore peace.

My passion and dedication to the work is evident upon our first meeting. My positive energy stems from the belief that change is possible and I come to restore hope. I provide an open, compassionate and non judgmental space for my clients to explore their past and present lives. Collaboratively, we work together, at your pace, to obtain the goals that you identify. I believe that parenting is a journey that we undertake without a map and, at times, along the way, we all get lost. And, together, we can create a new path that feels good to you.

People often ask me, "What is the purpose of therapy?" I believe there are a few answers to that question. First, you come to therapy to defrost grief, unexpressed rage and other negative feelings, e.g. traumas, losses, betrayals. You also learn to re-parent yourself. Second, you come to have a better transition in your work or love life, or to improve your performance and personal relations. Finally, you get to share your dreams and goals in a safe environment, with no judgment, and to produce amazing action plans to manifest your best life ever.

Many of them, as well as other patients, have mood disorders (anxiety, depression and bipolar disorder). I also work with individuals and families struggling with problems in work and career, marriage and similar relationships, and what are often described as existential or spiritual crises--the lack of a sense of meaning and purpose in life. I involve families in therapy when possible--people don't live and learn as isolated individuals.

The way psychotherapy is practiced has a lot to do with the mind set and life experience of the psychologist. I have been in private practice since 1980, and beyond the traditional training for psychologists, I also trained extensively in an approach known as Psychology of Mind, or Health Realization. This is a cognitive approach that is very down-to-earth but rooted in principles akin to those behind meditation, yoga and similar traditions that were developed to enhance optimal human functioning.
