Life is not meant to be static. What was once peaceful and gratifying can become tumultuous and discouraging. I work with individuals ranging from young adults to people in their 80's and 90's who are experiencing one of life's many transitions throughout adulthood... transitions involving work, college, romantic relationships, family and self-identity. Our responses to such significant life events often result in anxiety, depression, anger or restlessness.

My role as a clinical psychologist is to provide you with the tools to figure out the basis of your current difficulties and ways in which you can start to feel better. I provide a safe, comfortable and non-judgmental atmosphere in which we can work together to help you become your BEST self.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

There is no "one size fits all" approach to therapy. Your therapist's personality and approach MUST feel right to you, or the process just doesn't work. Contacting multiple therapists may be an important part of finding the right person for you. I welcome meeting potential clients who are "shopping around" for that right fit.

I'd love to hear what your past therapy experiences were... What worked? What didn't work? Perhaps there was something that made it difficult to open up to your last therapist? What are your expectations of yourself and of me? This is all important information that will help us guide our work together.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

No one ever scoffs when an athlete attends extra training sessions to improve his or her skills. No one is ever embarrassed when they bring their car in to the mechanic when the "check engine" light is on. Yet, many people are ashamed when they seek out help in coping with some form of emotional upheaval or significant life event. I view therapy the same way I view coaching sports and fixing cars... everyone needs a little extra help and support at some point in their lives. You are not flawed or broken because you may not be able to cope with every aspect of life at any given time. If anything, you are resourceful and strong for knowing when and how to ask for help.
