Are you unhappy in your primary relationship? Have you suffered the loss of a love? Are addictions (yours or your partners) hurting you and the people you love? Would you like to have a more fulfilling sexual relationship with your partner? I have been helping couples increase emotional and physical intimacy for over 20 years. I take a directive approach to helping couples communicate more effectively. Often they find this results in more frequent supportive and loving interactions. Therapy can help you become more empowered in all your relationships. This often results in being more productive at work as well.

This is a period of great anxiety and uncertainty, and it's important to have extra support. Chances are, you are more compassionate towards other people than you are to yourself. Having an internal critic who never lets up on you can lead to depression, anxiety, and relationship problems. As my clients develop greater self compassion, they see amazing changes in many aspects of their lives. I work with individuals and couples.

MINDFULNESS, BALANCE, GROWTH, AND EMPOWERMENT. It is possible to achieve a higher level of inner peace and reduce unnecessary suffering. We all can "lose our way" at times and find ourselves in situations that are difficult and painful. I believe that these crises can hold within them tremendous opportunities for growth and strengthening. Although most enter therapy during a crisis, the therapeutic process need not also feel painful or traumatizing. I will create a safe and validating therapeutic environment in which to transform personal suffering into strength and wisdom. We will collaborate to establish clarity and direction in our therapy.

I believe that experiencing loving, nurturing relationships is the best part of being alive. I also recognize that for many of us, creating and maintaining such relationships can be incredibly hard. I view psychotherapy as a means to explore and navigate whatever is currently blocking our path to healthy, fulfilling and supportive connections--both to others and to ourselves. Sometimes that means building skills we never learned in the first place. Other times that means navigating challenging past experiences. Whatever the circumstances, I am here to support your journey toward growth, fulfillment, and ultimately, greater joy.

My clients typically fall into three categories: 1) individuals with existential angst, questioning their trajectory in relationships, careers, and/or life; 2) individuals suffering from a myriad of compulsive behaviors/addictions; and 3) couples experiencing communication difficulties, misaligned values, discordant desires, or desiring archetypal reconstructions. My work emphasizes identifying & isolating troubling emotions that lead to negative thinking and behaving, and learning to think & act according to reason. During COVID I am offering limited in-person sessions and primarily teletherapy.

My particular expertise and interest is in working with survivors of trauma, abuse and victimization. Having survived trauma, abuse and victimization can lead to a variety of outcomes. Some people survive trauma with no problems at all, while other people develop anxiety, depression, substance use, personality or relationship issues. Various traumatic events, such as parental divorce or substance abuse, are very common even in middle class populations and have often both physical and psychological effects many years after the experienced trauma.

As humans we have an immense power in our ability to gain insight into our own thoughts, feelings, and actions. However, we often get so caught up in our everyday activities that we are unable to fully understand what is happening on an intrapersonal level. Psychotherapy provides the opportunity to gain this insight, and make changes based upon what we learn, using effective strategies that have emerged from decades of research.
