I partner with my clients to reduce anxiety, depression , stress, and malaise, while also building strengths and adaptation strategies. To do this, we usually 1) explore any straightforward or creative ways to alter life circumstances that contribute to the malaise, and 2) identify, then make and implement a plan to reduce any self-limiting thoughts, beliefs, assumptions, and doubts that contribute to my clients' distress. While this sounds abstract and difficult, I am informal in my approach and we often have a good time getting where we're going!

I see therapy as a collaborative process, where the client takes the 'expert seat'. No one knows you better than yourself. My role is to offer my knowledge when and where appropriate to help you gain insight into your concerns and facilitate the growth or change desired. I try to create a relaxed and non-judgmental environment for my clients. My approach is client-centered and strength based. I treat a wide range of concerns, which include depression , anxiety, sexual trauma, adult survivors of child abuse, eating disorders/body image, relationship concerns, family of origin issues, and grief and loss.

I can help with a wide range of issues including depression , anxiety, problematic use of alcohol and other substances, trauma, difficulty dealing with emotions, stress related to day-to-day living, struggles with life changes, and self-harming behaviors including suicidal behavior and non-suicidal self-injury.
The number one thing that makes therapy work is the connection between client and therapist. I want to understand what's happening with you so that I can put my skills to good use and help you to meet your therapy goals. My methods are based on scientific research and on my professional experience as a therapist. Many of the techniques I use with clients are techniques that I have applied in my own life to reduce my own suffering and improve my own happiness. I practice much of what I preach, so I know firsthand that these methods work.

I have a broad range of clinical interests including anxiety, depression , grief, life transitions and relationship concerns of all kinds, parenting, pain, identity questions, self-esteem, and trauma.
I believe that when we understand the layers and unfolding of our own complex stories, we can find compassion, empathy, and inner peace more easily. In my practice, I aim to create a safe, trusting space for every client, where we can work towards identifying and facing your concerns; discovering and cultivating your strengths; and ultimately, developing deeper empathy for yourself and others. Our work together could be brief, and focus on a few distinct concerns; alternatively, it could be longer-term, and focus on uncovering and processing the underlying causes of several issues.

For some of us they have been informed by past experiences and past trauma, for others of us anxiety and depression have infiltrated our stories.
“Sensitivity isn't being wimpy. It's about being so painfully aware that a flea landing on a dog is like a sonic boom.” This is a quote from a favorite musician of mine, Jeff Buckley. I see sensitivity as a strength, not a deficit. As a therapist, I work hard to help my clients understand that oftentimes the parts of themselves that they view as weak are really their greatest strengths. The stories we tell ourselves about ourselves are very important. They are the lens through which we view everything- they color our world. The problem is that a lot of the time the narratives we have about ourselves are simply not true.

The confusion that comes with anxiety, depression , or conflicted relationships can make any person feels as if they are stumbling in the dark, unable to remember positive experiences such as simple happiness, curiosity, and fulfillment. Effective psychotherapy is like "turning on the lights" of awareness, allowing us to recover internal clarity, healthy connection with others, and meaningful sense of direction.

“When we deny the story, it defines us. When we own the story, we can write a brave new ending.” -Brene Brown. Life has its challenges. Relationships can be complicated. During hard times, you may pull away from others fearing the personal connection or believe you just need time on your own to figure things out. By looking at your own story and learning from what did or didn't work, you can grow and still achieve the ending you want to your story.

I have significant experience working with clients who have a wide range of concerns including sexual trauma, depression , anxiety, family difficulties, peer problems, self-injurious behaviors, grief and loss, and adjustment and life transitions.
Chocolate, snowboarding, and shopping can be therapeutic, but sometimes they're not enough. I see teenagers, adults, and families when struggles get in the way of fun and suffering becomes too familiar. Friends and family hopefully are there when we need them, yet therapists can provide additional essentials: nonjudgmental, individual attention in a safe setting. Relationships are central to our well-being, and the therapy process involves building a relationship. Clients lead, and I listen to your goals and help you to identify unhealthy patterns, reduce negative self-talk, and learn more about how you view yourself and the world.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
