****Evening and weekend appointments available.****Do you feel overwhelmed, disconnected, and insecure? Has your relationship been wounded or lost its spark? Has becoming or being a parent turned your world upside down? Life is full of transitions and stressors and it’s hard to stay in tune with ourselves, our partners, and our family members as we grow, change, and deal with stress. Sometimes we all need a safe space to process, reconnect, and heal – to speak our pain, communicate what we need, and be supported as we tap back into love and connection.

I AM NOT TAKING NEW PATIENTS AT THIS TIME. Many of my patients are recovering from addictions of various sorts. Many of them, as well as other patients, have mood disorders (anxiety, depression and bipolar disorder). I also work with individuals and families struggling with problems in work and career, marriage and similar relationships, and what are often described as existential or spiritual crises--the lack of a sense of meaning and purpose in life. I involve families in therapy when possible--people don't live and learn as isolated individuals.

My moniker is that, "Shift Happens." Life is often out of our control. We cannot orchestrate all the changes around us so how do we continue to ride the tide? We are all facing tremendous change be it in our family, our jobs, the economy which dictates so much of our lives. Technology has us in its' grip and that alters the way we interact on a daily basis. Shift Happens! It's a fact, so my approach is to teach people how to re-invent, re-brand, re-identify realistic goals to fit in with the changing world. This affects how individuals interact with their families, their workplace, search for work, combat their self-esteem issues.

Developing a deeper understanding about why we do the things we do is an important part of becoming the person we desire to be. Therapy can be an important tool for self discovery and recognizing our problematic patterns. I believe that therapy should meet the individual where they are and the unique set of circumstances that they exist in. I utilize a client-centered therapeutic model, have a specialization in trauma work, expertise in addiction treatment, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, existential therapy, object relations, as well as navigating psychiatry systems (having run a clinic myself).

If we ignore them, we may find ourselves unable to reach the goals we want to reach, and, instead, only feeling dissatisfied, bitter or being stuck.
