There are many reasons why you might be considering therapy at this time: a long-standing problem, the impact of a current life situation, and/or wanting support for your personal growth. Whatever your reasons, I know that it's important for you to find a therapist with whom you feel you can develop a good working relationship - someone whom you feel you can trust, who can understand your situation, someone with solid training and experience.

In our work together we will come to understand more about the sense you may have that your life is not your own - feeling stuck, feeling driven by old habits, feeling depressed, feeling consumed and forestalled by rage, feeling that change is needed in your relationship or in your career.

You and I will work together to build a trusting and non-judgmental relationship where you can feel safe to talk about yourself openly. The strength of our relationship is a crucial foundation for our work together. You know your life better than anyone else. Therefore, we will hold great respect for your wisdom about yourself. I will offer my professional knowledge and wisdom as well, and together, we will work to help you discover how to live the life that is best and most fitting for you.

I work with adolescents to help them manage the often overwhelming feelings that can occur during this time of transition. Adolescence can be a time of tremendous upheaval with profound emotional, physical, and neurological growth. I work with adolescents with a wide range of difficulties, including anxiety, depression, mood swings, eating disorders, excessive fears, peer and relationship difficulties, behavioral changes, and school and academic problems. My work with teens helps them manage the often overwhelming feelings present during this developmental stage.

I also work with couples. Intimate relationships offer us fulfillment and simultaneously stir up some of our deepest anxieties and fears. Couples can use therapy to make sense of the struggles and impasses they face as individuals and within their relationships.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

People come into therapy for many reasons. Some need to respond to unexpected changes in their lives, while others seek self-exploration and personal growth. When coping skills are overwhelmed by guilt, doubt, anxiety, or despair, therapy can help. Therapy can provide support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping for issues such as depression, anxiety, lack of confidence, relationship troubles, unresolved childhood issues, bereavement, spiritual conflicts, stress management, body image issues, and creative blocks. People seeking psychotherapy are willing to take responsibility for their actions, work towards self-change and create greater awareness in their lives.

My Role as a Therapist

My style is relational, collaborative and engaged. The relationship that is built between the client and therapist gives me a lot of information about how clients interact in the world. My understanding as a therapist is informed by my training and clinical experience, but also grounded by a long-held commitment to my own psychological work and development.
