I think therapy can be helpful for anyone. No matter what you’re dealing with, it helps to know that you don’t have to go it alone. You can get an outside perspective, talk through confusing situations, receive support, make space to breathe, and give voice to previously unspoken thoughts and feelings. With the right therapist, you can construct a new understanding of yourself - a new story to make sense of your life.

If your relationship or marriage is in a tough spot, don’t despair! It’s normal to encounter problems in intimate relationships. Since couples seeking counseling typically feel embarrassed, or like they have failed in some significant way, I prefer to lead with what’s positive. My first priority is to restore hope—hope that, although you may have fought the same fight a thousand times, it is still possible for you and your partner to learn and grow.

I believe that love and intimacy are essential to all of our lives. Even if your relationship is mired in negativity, I will still be your champion. I have never told a couple, “You guys should split up.” That’s your decision, not mine. But if you ask me, I will tell you what I’m thinking or feeling. I definitely do not serve as a “blank screen.” I have biases. I am biased toward telling the truth; toward working things out together; toward laughter and play; toward women’s empowerment; and toward honoring the wisdom of feelings.

When you and your partner are facing greater problems than you can manage on your own, please give me a call. I can help you sort things out.

Every psychotherapy, whether it involves talking, medications or a combination of both, must begin with a clear sense of who an individual wants to be, or what defines that individual's core essence. Everything proceeds from this starting point in a process that is constantly reassessing the difference between that "ideal self" and where one is in the moment. This contrast assures that there will be constant movement forwards in the therapy. Of course one invariably seeks help at a moment of acute distress, but emerging from a place of discontent or suffering offers a unique opportunity at transformation and it is our goal to take full advantage of that opportunity.

By far the most powerful agency we possess is the ability to choose our life's path. Our thoughts and emotions can be fleeting and unreliable but they can also erode the confidence in our ability to make the choices that serve us well. A therapeutic process must restore the preeminence of your choices to allow you to craft the life that deep down, you always knew you were meant to lead.

We all need help sometimes. Relationships, career, family, money, health, sex—each aspect of our lives is built from our histories (what we bring with us from the past) and our habits (how we respond in the moment). Therapy is a place to take a deeper look at ourselves, and turn over all the puzzle pieces to discover how they fit to make a picture. Being aware of what shapes behaviors and responses can give us leverage to make choices that bring more joy, satisfaction, and energy.

There are so many reasons why you might find yourself here right now. Maybe you have been feeling out of control and unable to manage your emotions. Maybe you have noticed a disconnect in your relationships. Or maybe you find yourself struggling with moving forward in some part of your life. All of this is understandable and a normal part of being human. While it might feel like nothing can change or be different for you, the very fact that you are here speaks to some part of you that believes change is possible.

In therapy I give my patients the space to voice their experiences and concerns. Often, the very act of naming our troubles can bring a sense of relief—we are finally being heard. I also challenge my patients on their firmly held beliefs, as this can often lead to realizations and insights that set the groundwork for change. Therapy can be nerve wracking, even if you’ve sought help in the past. Because of this, I see my role as providing you with the support and encouragement you need. I am there with you, walking the same path and helping you find patterns and connections as they become clear. I value the trust you place in me as your therapist, your willingness to be open in our sessions and discuss emotional and vulnerable topics. My goal is to make sure that you feel supported enough to move forward with this (often difficult) work.

I understand it can be a struggle to reach out for help in difficult times. There can be plenty of barriers, but you are here, searching – which represents movement and action. And that is very encouraging. 

Now, finding the right person to work with is essential and although reading about me can offer you some insight into how I work and what I can offer, I invite you to contact me.
