Are you feeling overwhelmed, overworked, fragmented, fatigued, broken? Are you at a place where you find yourself concluding that life has turned out far differently than it was supposed to? A lost of hope and feeling hopeless to do any about it? Is it time to renew, refuel, recharge? Transformation? I want to make a personal invitation towards a new dialogue that will proceed with empathy, courage, strength, and hope. My background comes with over 30 years of pastoral care, reaching out to the hurting, and a belief people can write a new story.
When you feel overwhelmed, it can feel like you’re stuck in an endless cycle - life changes, high expectations, personal relationships, and the shifting world around us can all impact the feelings you have and how you cope. Have your eating habits changed? Do you constantly feel on-edge? Feeling unmotivated to do your daily tasks? These are common signs your mind is struggling to cope with challenges you’re facing. Reaching out for help can be scary, but you’ve already taken the first step toward helping yourself move forward!

Throughout my experience in the field, I have learned that an eclectic approach to therapy tends to be the most effective. In therapy, I draw from different theories and techniques to best address your presenting concern. My goal is to work collaboratively with you to create a plan for therapy that both meets your needs and is conducive to growth. We are all unique and what works for one person, may not be the right approach for someone else.
A therapist for the last 23 years, I spent the twenty preceding years in large firm law practice in SF, DC and NY. At almost. the last minute, i grabbed hold of my life, and turned it upside down. This turned out very well. Now, every day I get to delight in working with people in a frank and open way, with the aim of changing their lives for the better. Life is difficult — there’s no way around that. But when you and your therapist are a good fit, the therapy relationship can expand your world, deepen your knowledge of yourself, improve your relationships, and release you to a life you can enjoy more fully and freely.
It takes courage to change and to ask for help. Are you anxious, depressed, dealing with uncomfortable relationships? Over my thirty (plus} years as a Family Therapist I have been honored to work with couples, families, and individuals dealing with challenges in their lives. Every person has a unique story, and it can built upon, with the ending not being more of the same. I believe everyone has a drive to seek health and agency in their life.

Persons seek therapy when they experience stress, conflict, or loss that cause unhappiness and reduce effectiveness. They are affected negatively by pressure and problems at work, family, and relationships. Individuals come into therapy with their own particular needs shaped by disappointments and failures in some aspect of living in their world. With my guidance, together we create a treatment program which addresses their specific concerns. My approach is interpersonal, supportive and direct. I focus on helping my clients obtain relief from emotional distress and develop strength and awareness to deal successfully with events that confront them day to day.
Are you feeling overwhelmed by anxiety and/or depression? Do feel like your life is out of control due to obsessions with food, alcohol or drugs? Do you have unwanted behaviors that you cannot seem to change? I believe that we all have the ability to heal from emotional pain and suffering and that we sometimes need a little help to do so. Through a variety of techniques, I can help you can adjust thought processes, decrease the intensity of emotions, change behaviors, learn new skills and begin to experience a sense of peace and balance in your life.
You've probably already tried to figure out how to feel better. Sick of being told that you're "too sensitive" or "overreacting," you're exhausted by how emotions and memories reach out and grab you, ripping you from your best efforts at stability. The effects of trauma, including high levels of anxiety, may make you wish you could simply just get rid of your emotions. It doesn't seem to matter how smart you are or how great a problem-solver you are in other areas of your life. The end result is that you're discouraged. I offer a collaborative approach with interventions that work. Come work with me and find hope and change.
I take time to clearly understand each client's problems, goals, and preferences, and then we work together to develop a treatment plan specific to these needs. Based on my experience, clients need to know that their problems are fully understood. When this occurs, they oftentimes feel that their problems are truly validated. Also, when a treatment plan is geared towards someone's specific needs, this offers hope and motivation for change. Clients have repeatedly given me the feedback that (1) I truly understand their problems and (2) I collaboratively work with them to develop tools for addressing their difficulties.
I believe that life is magic, and hard! The more support we have the better we can navigate its ups and downs. Growing up in rural Arkansas gave me a unique perspective that has evolved as I have relocated to Virginia, Philadelphia, Ireland and Connecticut, and most recently, back to the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. I believe that being a parent is one of life's biggest challenges as well as one of its greatest joys. Whether trying to handle the effects of our own parents' parenting of us, or navigating the sometimes stormy waters as a parent of your own children, the more support you have, the better job you can do.

My clinical approach is to work with you to figure out how you see yourself now, what you want to be different, and how you want to get there. I serve as a reflective surface for you; where you can come to a space set aside specifically for you, and consider yourself.
