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.

Change is possible and I believe that all individuals deserve the opportunity to create positive changes that will impact them throughout their lives. My role in the therapeutic process is to help clients explore patterns of thoughts and behaviors that are negatively impacting their lives and provide them skills to gain more control and build healthy and meaningful relationships. I strive to provide a creative and collaborative environment by which clients can reach their goals in a relatively short time.

Are you a child, adolescent or adult having difficulty functioning at work, school, or in relationships? Sometimes a history of trauma, self defeating and limiting belief systems interfere with our ability to love, work and play. I can help when old ways of adapting to stressors no longer work. 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.

People who enter therapy are the bravest people in the world. The only difference between you and everyone else is that they are choosing to suffer in silence (or not so much silence), and you have decided that you deserve better. You want more. You may have some obstacles in your way, but with a little help there will be better road up ahead. My job is to walk with you, sometimes offering tools that I have picked up along the way, sometimes just listening, always being present.

Do you feel marginalized, dismissed and judged by social norms? Are you a part of a community that outsiders do not understand (vegan, LGBT, veteran). Perhaps these thoughts are competing with what you truly know about yourself. The anxiety and depression setting in are natural responses, but you deserve to be understood, respected and believed. Your thoughts are valid. You want to rebuild that self-esteem and find a meaningful community without being marginalized. You are ready to silence the naysayers and fully embrace yourself surrounded by a meaningful community. Do you want to feel understood by someone who really gets it?

I combine a unique and specialized form of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) based on Choice Theory with a Family Systems approach to treatment. I view maladaptive behavioral patterns as a result of inadequate or dysfunctional life choices. I assist my clients in recognizing these patterns of behavior and encourage them to draw realistic and practical solutions to the things that are hindering growth and happiness through the choices they make in life. I work collaboratively with my clients using a "here and now" problem-solving technique and develop a treatment plan that uses psychotherapy, exercise, nutrition, and social support networks.

Everyone faces various challenges in their lives. However, sometimes life's challenges can become overwhelming and seem more than we can manage on our own. I believe that therapy can be a safe environment to help you explore underlying problems, unresolved conflict, past trauma, broken relationships, and other issues that may be contributing to your presenting symptoms and behaviors. I use a strength based approach and eclectic treatment orientations with an emphasis on Cognitive Behavior Therapy. CBT is proven effective in treating anxiety and depression and other disorders since it illustrates the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
