The common denominator in virtually all of my clients' struggles and problems is the lack of relationship with Self.

The relationship with your Self is the most important relationship. It's the “X-factor” for empowerment, change through awareness and action, and what makes transformation possible.

The common denominator in virtually all of the problems and symptoms that bring people to therapy is relationships, past and current and there is a prevailing lack of knowhow to boot.

Most of the relationships I work come in are mired in discord and disconnection due to the backlog of unexpressed feelings and unresolved issues that never get any airtime and a palpable wedge of mistrust and unsafety between them

Relationships are as good as the conversations had. Can you talk to each other? How much do you talk to each other? What can you talk about? But, more importantly, how well do they understand each other and feel in the process.

Usually the first conversation I facilitate and one you can expect to have, one I consider to be perhaps the most standard and basic one every couple needs to be able to have is, How are you feeling in the relationship and towards each other?

I create a safe space for you to begin having these ‘more difficult’ conversations and facilitate a process that ensures that you talk and listen to each other in a way, and about things, you never did before.

I believe that each of us has a deep-seated desire to know others and be known by others. When this doesn't happen, we often find ourselves isolated and feeling alone - even when surrounded by others.

I will create a safe space where you can explore, know, and understand your whole self, even the parts that you’re sometimes afraid to look at. I will help you remove shame, fear, loneliness, and guilt so that you can manifest your authentic self. I can help you get unstuck and discover who you really are. I can help you overcome the pain of rejection and embrace your authentic self.

Taking the first step to begin therapy can be challenging, but you won’t regret it. By now, you have already learned ways to tolerate life’s painful challenges. You don’t have to do this alone. Take the next step and call me today.

If you’re here you may be wondering how therapy can be helpful and if I’m the right therapist for you. Thankfully you’ve taken the first step, which is usually the hardest. My primary goal is to create an environment that is accepting, warm and safe, while also challenging you to find new perspectives and likely make some changes in your life. We will work together with the goal of exploring different aspects of your self in order to uncover why you may be feeling stuck or unsatisfied. 

Do you want closeness but have trouble finding the words to ask for it? Are your habits/behaviors getting in the way of your relationships now? Put simply, I help individuals and couples rediscover intimacy and connection. This can include the relationships we have with others but also ourselves--whether you're seeking to better your relationship with your partner or to food and/or sex (and everything in between) I'm here to provide a warm, non-judgmental space that is both accepting and thought provoking.

I believe in therapy being both active and safe which means I will consistently show up for you to help you meet your goals and live the life you want.

In a nutshell, an intimacy avoidant behavior is using something on the outside to fix something inside.  Intimacy avoidance behaviors include over-spending or over-shopping, problematic sexual or relationships behaviors (including excessive pornography use, codependency and avoidance of sex or relationships), substance abuse and eating disorders.

SWPA is a group of seasoned and experienced specialized clinicians, each of us at the top of our respective specialities. We have come together with one shared truth - for us, our work is a calling. This isn't just a job. This isn't just a paycheck. We truly love our work and the care we provide our clients. Every decision we make in our practice is based on helping our clients achieve their goals.

We believe our clients are "whole" just as you are. You are not broken, you are not bad, but you may be struggling or hurting, like so many of us are. That struggle may be internal in how you think about yourself or others, or the struggle may be external in your relationships. Regardless of the source of your pain, there is hope that things can be different. The first step in creating change is reaching out and finding a place you feel comfortable in being yourself - your whole self.
