"Life has many challenges, it's how you grow from your past that defines who you are in life. You may feel alone, misunderstood, and unfulfilled with your life or personal relationships. Perhaps you're having intense negative emotions. People typically enter therapy when they are in distress, although it's usually the long-term and underlying struggles that concern them the most. Initially, we will work quickly to address your immediate pain and provide relief. As therapy progresses, our focus may shift so you develop more positive and enriching relationships with yourself and others. "

"We are all capable of creative change. Those things that block us can be overcome with the greater understanding that results from the collaborative process known as psychoanalysis. I believe in a person-centered flexible approach to exploring the potentials and obstacles in our inner lives. The opportunities offered from an empowering and problem solving exploration of your self, in a serious and respectful relationship, are substantial and worth the time and effort involved. Greater self-understahnding and a vital sense of connection to others are the goals of analysis - increased happiness and a more successful life will result."

"Depression, anxiety, relationship troubles...Are you locked in a destructive cycle that you can't break alone? Has some traumatic event in your life continued to haunt you even after months or years? Emotional problems often develop if we feel that we have lost control over some critical area of our lives. Overwhelming feelings can seem to come from nowhere, isolating us or holding us back. The right therapist can help you to feel less alone, find relief and get your life on track. Damaged relationships can be repaired, becoming deeper and healthier."

As a board certified clinical social worker with over 40 years experience in the field, I've learned that having anxiety and depression limits ones ability to feel at ease and enjoy satisfying relationships. These feelings can make one feel inadequate, uncertain and lonely. On occasion they can lead to abusing substances in order to treat depression and lift anxiety.

"As a therapist, I feel strongly that adolescents, children and their parents, can overcome obstacles and increase life satisfaction not only as individuals but also as families. Many of the problems, both social and academic, that children and adolescents face today stem from difficulties managing emotions. This takes shape in a variety of ways; temper tantrums and moodiness, low tolerance for frustration, hyperactivity, limited attention, poor social skills, low self-esteem, defiance of authority, lack of direction and motivation, substance use, and a decline in academics. I can assist individuals and families in developing strategies to reduce these disruptive symptoms."
