Beginning therapy can be scary and intimidating, but also hopeful. Discussing your wishes and uncertainties in session can promote clarity and lead to positive changes in thinking and behavior that are necessary to improve circumstances and relationships. Action is required for positive life changes to occur. It isn't always easy figuring out what action to take or what changes to make. Therapy is a safe place to explore these thoughts and feelings. Small shifts can lead to large improvements in mood and relationships. Please reach out with questions or to schedule an initial consultation.

**I'm not accepting new clients at this time** When past events are keeping you from living your life fully, it's time to take steps toward healing. If you're feeling tired of "just surviving" I can help you build skills to effectively move forward in your life. Often times my clients will come in not knowing where to start but acknowledging that they feel "stuck". Coming in for your first session is a big step forward and a great start to healing.

I have had training and experience in several types of therapy; psychodynamic, dream work, cognitive-behavioral, and mindfulness-based psychotherapy which uses meditation as a complement. Most of my clients are experiencing depression, anxiety or going through a life crisis/transition. I enjoy using books and readings to concretely extend the therapy to life outside the sessions. A special interest is working with writers to faciliate their creative process. And I find humor is very important in therapy as in life.

Resolving personal issues and the work of self-discovery can be a difficult but rewarding journey. Undertaking this challenge in a thoughtful way, with someone who acts as support and guide, helps illuminate the process. Relationship issues, romantic, familial or social, can be filled with confusion, anger, jealousy and the loss of self-worth. They can also be the seeds for better understanding who you are in the moment and who you really want to be.

Change is necessary at the mind, body and spiritual level for adaptation to occur. We will work together through your transformation. You can learn new ways to tolerate what has been overwhelming and you can develop new, healthier coping skills to help you manage what was formerly intolerable about daily living.
