"My clients are most often dealing with communication concerns, issues of intimacy and complications related to life changes. When traumatic events impact their daily lives, they may seek assistance. Occasionally couples and families experiencing stress in their relationships may need an objective listener and guide to help them figure out how to reestablish balance. With the many demands of life and work, we work together to find pleasure in their families and for parents to reinstate parental authority within the family structure."

"I work with adults, adolescents, children and couples / families. If you are anxious, depressed, or lonely; in a troubled relationship, grieving, haunted by childhood trauma, or painful, confusing feelings; it can be hard to make headway alone. There are times when the reason for coming to therapy is clear (a loss, a crisis), other times a feeling that something is holding you back, or keeping you from your self."

"Are you concerned about your substance use and thinking about making a change? I can help you. Whether you would like to stop using substance, moderate them, or just cut down – I understand what you’re going through. You feel fear and anxiety, try to stop or cut down and go right back to your normal use just like you are on auto-pilot. You’re not weak, you’re just losing the battle against power chemical reactions in your brain. Let me help break free from this cycle. I'll personalize your counseling to be as effective for you as possible, not a "one-size fits all" approach. You'll learn new tools and coping skills."

"The therapy relationship offers the opportunity to better understand yourself and how you relate to others. The focus is solely on you, which means that unlike casual discussions with friends, you don't have the distraction of trying to manage someone else's difficulties as well as your own. This doesn't, however, mean that I'm a silent participant. I listen closely to you and share my observations and insights for both of us to consider. I believe that when we feel deeply understood and connected to someone else, change is possible."

"I hold that you may have many feelings about beginning therapy and what has led you here. In my view, an effective therapy is one where honesty and candor about such experiences, may be received with support and understanding. This generates change. My approach is thoughtful, kind and curious. I work relationally and psychodynamically, meaning collaboration, dialogue and careful consideration of how past informs present-day obstacles is taken-up and explored. Through this process, connections are made that facilitate a deeper understanding of you, your relationships, and importantly, offer some relief from punishing patterns."

"Most people looking for a relationship therapist wish they could make changes, but don't know how. What they have tried has not worked. Everyone has irresolvable issues. Never do we have the exact same desire for money in the bank, sexual frequency, social activities, neatness, or parenting ideas (etc.) This is built-in conflict. This built-in conflict carries with it the seeds for growth and connection that would not happen in any other way. Living in distress is so awful and so curable. What I do is start with creating safety, so it is safe for you to talk to your partner and be heard, from there needed conversations can occur."

"I utilize both relational theory and mindfulness practice as grounding principles of my therapy style. Relational work is based on the idea that through our relationships and knowing how we operate within them, we can better understand ourselves and grow to our fullest potentials. Mindfulness practice seeks to observe and notice our reactions to experiences - from the most minute to the largest, for the purposes of decreasing our suffering. I seek to support people in healing from interpersonal, familiar, societal, systemic, and historical traumas. I provide psychotherapy for individuals, those in relationships (couples, poly, friendships, etc) and families."

"You feel frustrated with your anxiety and the more you try to understand it and make it go away, the larger your anxiety gets. You have regular visits from your inner critic that replays every detail of your conversation, all the ways you failed, and all the ways people will judge you for it. Your thoughts spiral out of control when someone makes a comment about you. From the outside, you’ve got it together. You’re tidy, well kept, and apologetic to a fault; it’s rare if someone doesn’t like you. But underneath, you’re depleted, exhausted, and anxious. Life feels out of balance and you’re worn out with worry and stress."
