All of us encounter times when our lives don't look like we expected they would. Whether a relationship has dissolved, you've received a diagnosis, lost a loved one--or you're dealing with other game-changers--your journey MATTERS and the way that you walk through this difficult season matters. As a Licensed Clinical Psychologist for the past 15 years, I offer online psychotherapy to Clients in NY, TN, & FL, specializing in helping adults (individuals, couples, and groups) who are struggling with anxiety, grief, and life transition issues.
Life can be difficult in these challenging times. Offering a safe place to help you with your current situation and/or past trauma. I specialize in helping individuals get to the root of why they can not seem to move out of situations that keep them stuck. Relationships can repeat what we do not repair. Areas of expertise are anxiety, relationships, depression, marriage counseling, anger and stress management, PTSD, grief, trauma, communication, and finding purpose. As a certified temperament specialist, I help people understand their own personalities within relationships. Marriage and individual counseling for all walks of life.
I believe that one of the greatest power and influence in our lives are our relationships with others. It is from relationships that all of our trauma, negativity, and heartache originate; however, it is only through relationships that we can also find true healing for prior wounds that continue to determine present actions and emotions. The difference in these two kinds of relationships is honesty, vulnerability, and reciprocity: a mutual connection that cultivates intimacy and acceptance by removing shame and anxiety. It is only through these authentic relationships that we can truly feel complete and secure in our own skin.

I have worked with individuals and couples for over forty years, helping them to capitalize on their strengths rather than focusing on their problems. I see my role as a co-participant with clients in the therapy process. I seek to enable individuals and couples to develop their inner resources with understanding and caring support. In such a setting, my clients gain the strength and freedom to solve or manage their problems in creative ways.

Have you been wounded? Many wounds occurred through relationships, and it is through relationship where they can be restored. Though not easy, many of those I work with begin to take risks, experience more meaningful relationships, and even a greater sense of joy in life. Real change is possible and I'd love to walk that path with you.

If you're buried by the day-to-day stress of life, beat down by task lists or strained relationships, or if you've had some major event knock your life off balance, you may be feeling anxious, overwhelmed, angry, trapped, or depressed. Too much negative stress, whether chronic or immediate, takes over our ability to cope and throws us into a negative spiral that is hard to recover from. There is help though and you don't have to try to pull out of that spiral on your own.

Making the step to begin the counseling process can be scary and overwhelming; but it can be the first step toward healing and change. I absolutely love working with individuals and couples. Walking along side clients as they journey their way through hurt, anger, grief, frustration, and other emotions, is my pleasure. Some of the clients with whom I have worked came to me when things seemed to be very grim and hopeless. It has been my pleasure to watch them put in the hard work and commitment to the therapeutic process and come out as stronger individuals and couples.

Issues in your life are leaving you feeling disconnected from yourself – your dreams, deepest values, family or friends, and maybe your own body. It is not uncommon for people to come to therapy and say, “I just feel lost.” You may wonder where the meaning has gone. Life is confusing. Sometimes you doubt life itself, and you are forever doubting yourself. You're exhausted! Showing up is the first step in finding yourself. I help you identify your deepest values and adjust your life to live by them; I go deep and you need to know that up front.
Do you struggle with sex getting more daily attention than your closest relationships? Maybe a previous infidelity or betrayal continues to plague the relationship? Many of my clients struggle to make sense of emotions, but long to feel safe and connected to friends and family. Despite our best protective strategies, emotional experiences will not be ignored. Over a lifespan, adaptive protective strategies of the past become our prisons. Mal-adaptive in the present, old and helpful strategies of the past form the barriers to trusting safe and connected relationships we all desperately desire.
