Life can be difficult. Often, we are faced with issues and circumstances that can be challenging at best, and most of us were not taught the skills to help us successfully navigate through our experiences. We feel the pressure to please others while forgoing our own needs & feelings. We all want to feel more joy in our lives, but we don't always know how to achieve it.

Remote sessions now available. The focus of my practice is helping people who have reached a crossroad; men and women in the second half of life who have lost their sense of meaning and purpose; young adults striking out on their own for the first time and wondering where their genius lies; couples about to be married; and couples in conflict wondering how to stay together. These new experiences are fraught with unexpected moods like anger, fear, self-doubt, and loneliness. Old ways of coping no longer work. But fear not. This is a perfect time to rediscover your innate talent, courage, and imagination.

Therapy is a way to get in touch with parts of yourself that are disconnected. DW Winnicott described disconnection in terms of a true and false self. As we grow up we learn to adapt to our environment and our caregivers to maintain a relationship. We may keep our thoughts and emotions to ourselves, because to express them might mean abandonment. Eventually you reach a point when this is not working so well in your life. Patterns of relating have developed over time. Therapy offers an opportunity to find new and improved ways of relating to yourself and others.

I treat clients from a trauma informed perspective. If it is addiction issues (substance or process) anxiety, depression or other mood disorders, so much of what informs these maladies is developmental or relational trauma. Big T or shock trauma can bring on many underlying issues that have been dormant. I work with clients to carefully assess their history and treatment goals. I use CBT, Psychodynamics, EMDR and other trauma treatment modalities to effectively resolve the inner disturbance.
