In working with individuals, couples , groups and families, my clinical approach is to partner and develop a plan that will best address unique concerns and goals.
Change can be hard. It can be scary, overwhelming, and can produce fears. It is different than what we know, different than what things are like today. Change happens no matter what; it is the one constant that we all experience.

My clients are adult individuals and couples who would like to have deeper relationships. They're experiencing life transitions, grief, or they've reached a point in their lives where the old strategies aren't working anymore and they want to create new patterns in their lives. They want to release old hurts, feel more ease and freedom in their spirits and bodies, understand themselves and their partners better, and be the best parents they can be.

I work with individuals, couples , and families.
We all face challenges in our lives. Sometimes we get through them easily and sometimes we get stuck. Sometimes the thoughts of past challenges stick with us and influence our day-to-day activities. I believe that it can be helpful to talk through these thoughts and situations to gain clarity and decide how you want to move forward. I see my role as being a supportive, non-judgmental, safe place to explore your concerns. Everyone's needs are different, but I can help you make plans for changes in your behaviors or to find a new way of thinking about difficulties.

My particular style of therapy is nourished by these aspects of me: mother of two, stepmother of three; partner of 35 years; singer/songwriter and artist; active user of dreamwork to heal since my teenage years; highly value the power of spirituality and community in healing.
I love being a therapist and having the privilege of helping people heal, grow, and discover (or re-discover) their purpose in life. It takes tremendous courage to share with another person what you want to change about yourself. I feel that my role is to be a compassionate guide and facilitator to help you learn about yourself, your roots, your helpful and unhelpful personal habits and patterns with others. I use art, music, psychodrama, dreamwork, intuition and active listening to help you challenge yourself and become the sort of person you want to be in the world.

I take joy in supporting individuals, couples and families eager to understand the relationship patterns that hinder their daily interactions.
Relationships are magical. They are also hard work. Just when you thought you'd found your person, the intimacy and joy gives way to new depths of disconnect and loneliness. Or perhaps you're a new parent, excited by the unique possibility of bonding as a family, only to discover overwhelm, even suffering. Trauma can create additional barriers to connection. Attachment issues and difficult childhood relationships can result in reenactments of past relationships and roles that are just plain exhausting. Sound familiar? Then its time for change.

I specialize in working w/ individuals & couples struggling w/ toxic relationship patterns often driven by personality disorders such as Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Anti-social Personality Disorder, and Borderline Personality Disorder.
You're here because you're somewhere between "deeply worried" & "frantic" over a difficult relationship. You feel frustrated, confused, hurt, angry, & maybe a little crazy. The other person may be a partner , parent, sibling, or adult child - someone w/whom you feel you want to have a relationship, but whose criticisms, controlling behaviors. volatility, manipulations, or demands steal your joy. They may also cost you a lot of time, money, energy, social support, & creativity. You wonder if you're dealing w Narcissistic Abuse. They refuse to change. You believe staying stuck where you are may destroy you, and you may be right.

It was Ralph Waldo Emerson who once said that, "What lies behind us and what lies before us matters little compared to what lies within us". For more than 30 years I have focused on helping children and adults, individually, in couples , in families and groups achieve strength, peace and confidence by improving conflict resolution, communication, stress and anxiety, anger management skills, child and adolescent behavioral problems, and parenting skills as well as improved functioning and decreased emotional distress related to depression, self-esteem, post-traumatic stress and bipolar disorders. Through a combination of interpersonal, cognitive-behavioral and motivational approaches I have seen my clients make meaningful and lasting transformations in both emotional and behavioral dimensions.

What type of Madison mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Madison?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
