I use video therapy to empower your ability for self-care, because your time is the most precious commodity and sitting in traffic just isn't very conducive to finding meaning and relief.

There’s almost always more than one way to solve a problem or address an issue in your life. But which approach is right for you? I specialize in answering that question -- looking at the challenge or obstacle you’re facing from several different angles. Maybe you feel stuck, or anxious, or have something that you just keep doing, and that thing has become the obstacle. My job is to listen and suggest ways to address that obstacle, and allow you to return to your natural state of mental well-being.

We all need help sometimes dealing with life's struggles and challenges. You don't have to go through it alone. I find it takes courage for people to reach out for help and support, and that it is so valuable to invest in yourself to make the time to just be yourself for an hour a week and talk about whatever is important to you without needing to prove yourself or fearing being judged.

With my 15 years of experience as a psychologist and psychotherapist, we will work together to make deep, long-lasting changes to move through your pain and improve the quality of your life. You don't have to let stress, anxiety, anger, trauma, shame, or loss run your life or ruin your relationships. I have had countless clients share with me their appreciation about how much our therapy has improved their lives and made them feel more whole, brave, empowered, and authentic. I look forward to having the opportunity to partner with you in creating a more deep, rich, fulfilling life.

I am curious to get to know you and appreciate what makes you unique and special, in the here and now. At the same time, I believe psychotherapy involves growth and potential.

I hope that together we can explore growth, but I believe that in order to move forward you often must consider and make choices, even when your options are limited. As we consider your choices, I want you to feel that my office is a safe space to talk and explore. In this non-judgmental place, I also hope we can examine your relationship patterns and coping mechanisms, and consider whether to strengthen or modify them.

Finding the right therapist is like dating. It can take a few tries to get the right fit. With the right therapist your life can be transformed because you have someone who can provide support and guidance as you go. I act like your personal cheerleader encouraging you to adopt healthy patterns and try to avoid destructive ones.

I help people who are struggling with a variety of personal, work and school issues like stress, anxiety, depression, and relationship issues. I also help clients who are grieving, going though a difficult time, have parenting questions, communication problems, or dealing with infidelity and/or divorce.  I try to understand my clients' current challenges and examine their patterns of behavior and thinking that led them to their current situation. Together we look at family patterns and environmental factors to determine their best next steps to feel better. I incorporate mind-body suggestions if the client is open to that.

The decision to begin therapy is often challenging; it is both humbling and empowering. However, once you acknowledge that you would like to enter into treatment many clients feel relieved and find strength in their decision.

My practice is focused on assisting people in overcoming obstacles that get in the way of their relationships and emotional and occupational functioning. The therapy I conduct is done via videoconferencing and provided over a secure network. The groups I run are small in nature and while they do provide some support, these groups are skills based and intended to teach you new ways in tackling everyday stressors, cognitive symptoms, and communication issues.

All you need to bring to therapy is an open mind and a willingness to explore. I am a very interactive therapist; I give a lot of feedback and guidance. In my work with individuals, I help people see how they developed the coping skills and defense mechanisms they did, and how to begin recognizing them in a less judgmental way. I also teach couples new communication skills: how to rebuild trust and safety after a breach, how to mirror one another, ways to validate and empathize. We work on breaking bad patterns and create healthier ones using positivity and appreciations.

It's so rewarding to help couples and families heal old and current wounds, and to see my clients use therapy as a way to soar to new emotional freedoms. Please don't be in pain anymore: contact me so we can set goals together, develop healthier ways of coping, and watch you blossom.
