When it's an uphill battle to manage anxiety, low self-worth or impulsive self-sabotaging habits, it’s probably time to get some help. Life doesn't need to feel so hard. I facilitate the wisdom and drive to heal already inside you. It's normal to feel transformation may be out of reach. But I have helped many people thrive. Impulses, emotional overwhelm and habits often get "updated." It's common to feel more ease, self-accepting and empowered to make key changes. I excel at supporting and guiding my clients along their path. Many indicate they feel refreshed, transformed and nourished. Feel free to call. I'd love to tell you more.

We live in a time where many of the emotions that make us uniquely human have increasingly become labeled as "disordered." Different ways of thinking and feeling that do not fit societal norms are often pathologized rather than valued. Common experiences, such as anxiety around relationships or sadness over loss, are treated as illnesses rather than natural reactions to difficult events that, when explored with respect, often lead to profound growth and creativity. I see psychotherapy less as a way to learn how to "become normal" and more as a journey that invites you to live more fully by embracing all that makes us human.

Do you defer to others too easily? Do you privately criticize yourself while easily finding good qualities in others? Are you more worried about others' reactions than your own? Do you feel anxious about where you stand with people? Living this way - no matter what it looks like from the outside - can feel demanding, frustrating, and perilous. I offer therapy that empowers you to go after what you want in love and work, with less fear of rejection or guilt over being 'selfish'.

We often come to therapy in crisis. Something has gone wrong in a relationship. Major, disorienting life transitions are underway. Emotional experiences are becoming increasingly overwhelming. Life seems stuck, static, depressing. Anxiety is on the rise. A series of events have altered our course. We are feeling lost. Therapy can offer a soothing lifeboat for these rough seas. Often crisis is a wake up call, a time for necessary change, new growth, a reconnoitering of the landscape, a vivid reorientation. My practice is designed to move you from crisis to care, from care to confidence, confidence to creative, enlivening capacity.

I'm a "seasoned" psychologist in practice for 40 years. I enjoy working with people from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds and have always preferred having a "general practice" which allows addressing a wide range of personal concerns. While each individual requires a unique approach; the transformative power of therapy is rooted in the trusting relationship that evolves between you & I. It's the alliance between us which helps you become the person you aspire to be. The work is serious but also allows for having a bit of fun while seeking the most gratifying life to foster a sense of fulfilling purpose for yourself.
