My therapeutic approach is dynamic, relational, and strength-based.
We all face challenging moments in our lives—whether we are experiencing anxiety or sadness, difficulty coping with life events, conflictual relationships, or a desire for a greater self-esteem.  As a therapist, I can help you identify your unique gifts and needs, free you from maladaptive patterns, examine your past, and allow you to take charge of your life story. The power of therapy and our therapeutic relationship can get you moving. After all, sometimes we need an objective listener, someone to validate us, challenge us, and offer new perspectives. The same applies to kids and I often utilize play for assessing and treatment.

If you believe that eating disorders are incurable, you have been misled by one of many misconceptions about these disorders. Eating disorders are 100% curable in 80% of cases, when treated in an effective and timely manner. Anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder erode and fragment an individual's sense of Self, impairing self-care. self-regulation and self-esteem. Effective recovery re-awakens and integrates the patient's fragmented self, creating a sustained sense of empowered self-confidence in all life spheres...beyond eating and weight-control. Successful recovery offers a life-changing investment now, and for the future.

All of us need a space to be able to talk freely, safely, without judgement or fear of another person's reaction/response. We all have those people in our lives that provide us with a listening ear or a shoulder to cry on, but what about those times when we don't feel comfortable sharing with any of those in our immediate lives? Who do we talk to when our significant other isn't hearing what we have to say? When it's something that we fear sharing with another individual so we keep it to ourselves to manifest and become anxious, depressed, angry, or self destructive thoughts? There is a space for you, to be your most vulnerable.

Divorce is a difficult transition. It is an emotional upheaval that unleashes a multitude of fears and losses. In my 25 years of experience, the men and women I have counseled who were facing divorce, showed a marked improvement when they had a supported safe place to work through their fears, mourn their losses, and move on with their lives. I offer counseling to help reduce the anxiety and de-escalate these emotions while helping you to have a better understanding of the legal process. My extensive legal knowledge and experience can save you time and money as you navigate the legal system.

If you're thinking about therapy, you're taking a brave, active step toward positive change. This might be hard to see right now, when things may not be going so well, but that's how a good helping professional interprets your call for support--as evidence of your wisdom and strength. Perhaps you're thinking about therapy for reasons like these: uncomfortable feelings that just won't go away (dissatisfaction, emptiness, anger, or "overwhelm"); relationship problems; challenging life shifts or situations; problematic or self-harming behaviors; frustrating, unexplained aches and pains; or questions about identity, image, and meaning.
