"At times, therapy can feel necessary in the short-term to help navigate a crisis situation. Other times, it can be a longer process of self-exploration and growth. My goal is to help you tell your story, figure out how to overcome stuckness, and live a more meaningful life in whatever way you define that. We will pay close attention to the patterns that frustrate you, the things you want but can't seem to get, the parts of yourself you want to express but remain hidden or misunderstood."

"The things that we don't want to talk about, think about, or remember haunt us in our current lives. They can have us feeling numb and distant from people, situations, or our bodies. Whether thoughts, feelings, or events have undermined your sense of self, triggering anxiety, depression, anger, or grief, or you are struggling in your relationships or with your sexuality, you can begin to feel less perplexed and alone."

I understand the internal bravery involved, and I work to create in my practice an environment where people will feel safe to explore feelings and thoughts, and to work on specific issues that feel complicated.

"Are you ready to start therapy? Good psychotherapy works through attention to the collaborative dialog between client and doctor. In our conversations, we will explore how past and present conflicts, patterns of behavior, and characteristic strengths and weaknesses may influence your life choices. Transformative therapeutic work can be short-term or long-term, and include weekly or more frequent meetings. It can be hard work to address anxiety, depression, dissatisfaction and indecision. However, with consistent psychotherapeutic support, it is possible to change, to heal old wounds, renew your self confidence, and improve your capacity to manage feelings and fears."

Therapy is essentially a series of conversations in which you and I create meaningful solutions to problems and difficulties in living.

It can also be significant trauma, frequently hidden, that erodes trust, self-soothing and joy. I work with teens, adults and elders, especially at points of challenge and self-doubt. This manifests itself in anxiety, depression, insomnia, eating issues, sexual issues, and somatic symptoms. There must be a feeling of chemistry to engage you and speak directly to your hope and skepticism. I bring to the encounter my passion, my integrity, and extensive knowledge of treatment modalities. Credentials are necessary but not sufficient."
