CURRENT limited openings. Anxiety, depression, self doubt, and daily stress can be so pervasive. Does the stress of daily life feel anxiety provoking and overwhelming? Are your job, relationships or friendships feeling stressful? Perhaps feeling stuck or unsettled is becoming a daily reality. It may feel like it's getting harder to thrive and telling people “no” feels hard or unmanageable. You may feel like you are alone, isolated and that you can’t talk with the people in your life about these issues. I want to help you figure some of this out, to learn to love and thrive in life again.

I work on helping everyone find their unique path towards success and growth. In this work I have learned that there is no "one right way" to do things and everyone has a unique and personal journey towards finding the peace, success and growth they want in themselves, their lives and relationships. My goal is to help everyone I work with find this path and walk with them as they journey through the many challenges of their lives.

There is no substitute for tending to our personal and relational experiences; it is likely the reason you are reading this. Welcome! From my experience, when we desire a deeper engagement with life or significant problems arise, often something within us wants our attention. When we pay attention to our feelings and actions rather than focus on events or people, we frequently discover the "How" of creative change. Sometimes change means behaving in unfamiliar ways, adapting to limitations, or relating differently to our partner. Hence, my approach embraces the wisdom and direction that problems and desires provide within each person.

What if life could be experienced without feeling like you're running from yourself? You know that you have the potential to overcome, but how do you get there? You might've tried therapy before and found some benefit. Still, for one reason or another, anxiety, anger, or depression continues to overwhelm you and distracts you from the goals you envision for your life.

My belief is that counseling is a journey we travel together. Our first step is to define where you want to go - discovering the reasons that you have chosen to meet with me at this point in your life. We will also identify your strengths, what's working well in your life, and the things that can be changed to get you to your destination. My ultimate goal is to work myself out of a job as you develop the skills and tools that you can use in the present and the future to have the life that you desire.

Bipolar Disorder Therapists

What is the most successful approach to treating bipolar disorder?

Living with bipolar disorder can be challenging, and a number of therapies have been found effective in providing support to patients as they gain the skills to understand and manage the disorder. Family-focused therapy is often helpful for children and teens (the majority of cases develop before age 19); it aims to minimize mood cycling by improving family communication and reducing conflict. It also helps young people navigate the developmental challenges the disorder can create. Cognitive and behavioral therapy (CBT) and variants such as dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) help patients manage the thoughts and feelings that influence bipolar mood swings as well as develop specific behavioral strategies to counteract them.

What happens in therapy for bipolar disorder?

Because the patterns of mood switching and its triggers differ for each person and can change over time, mood tracking or monitoring becomes a basic way patients learn about the nature of their condition. One of the most common features of therapy is finding a workable method of mood monitoring, in which patients track their daily activities and rate their moods, then use the findings to adjust routines accordingly. Patients learn ways of handling the many stresses that arise in life so that they do not trigger mood swings.

What kinds of problems does therapy help with?

Like many other mental health disorders, BPD is heavily influenced by stress; therapy provides skills for coping with stressors of all kinds. Therapy is extremely important for helping individuals identify the situations that may trigger mood switching, so that mood swings can be prevented. Therapy may especially target recognition of the early stages of mood change so that they can be managed. In addition, therapy helps patients deal with the significant amount of turbulence the disorder can create in relationships and in work life.

What is the goal of therapy for bipolar disorder?

Therapy helps patients set up their lives to maintain stability so that their mood isn’t constantly threatened by daily events. Perhaps the first task of therapy is to educate people about the nature of the disorder. At the same time, a primary goal of therapy is to enhance adherence to drug treatment. Extended periods of mood stability can prompt patients to discontinue medication, triggering relapse, while the early phases of manic episodes can feel so energizing that patients stop medication, ushering in full-blown mania and the altered self-perception that can lead to destructive behaviors. Another major goal of therapy is to understand one’s mood patterns so as to minimize both the frequency and intensity of mood cycling.
