Relationships are the cornerstone of a happy and successful life. Depression, anxiety, and anger can disrupt your ability to form and sustain healthy relationships with others and with yourself. The ways you choose to cope with and react to your strong and stressful emotions affect your sense of well-being and self-esteem, which naturally affect your ability to feel effective in your work and/or social life.
I provide a supportive therapeutic environment in which you can explore your own ability to relate to others and to gain a greater understanding of yourself. I work well with older adolescents, young adults and couples who struggle with identity, family, communication problems, and coping abilities. Often, we will explore substance use, sexuality, and verbal/physical aggression. Together, we will explore the foundations for these behaviors and work to create the positive change you desire.
I do my best to create a safe space that allows for the development of trust and confidence in the therapeutic relationship. My client's comfort is of utmost importance; I want you to feel supported as we begin to explore your inner world and the world of your relationships.

More Info About My Practice
I do not provide an anger management class. I work one-on-one with my clients to understand and cope with their anger. If you require a certificate of completion, one will be provided for you upon completion of mandated number of hours.
My Role as a Therapist
Often, we feel like there is no way out of our problems and that we have no options; this is a difficult place to be. My role as your therapist is to offer you a comfortable place to be yourself and to explore your thoughts and feelings, openly and without judgment. Through our work together, we can discover the ways in which you are tied down by your thoughts and feelings by offering alternative perspectives and exploring the history behind your beliefs and values.
I also see myself as your guide to getting back in touch with your core values - the defining purpose of your life that leads you in the right direction. I find that when you define your values and consciously live by them, you can begin to feel the internal peace so many of us seek.
What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process
Your trust in me as your therapist is of utmost importance, as it is my privilege to share in your experience. I know it will take time to feel comfortable with me and to develop the understanding that my office - and our relationship - is a safe space to think and feel out loud. I will do my best to offer support and encouragement, to understand where you are coming from, without imposing my values onto you. This means I may ask questions or seek further details, but I will only go as far as you are willing. Over time, I will ask you to draw on your courage as we go deeper into your concerns, but again, I will do so with respect and empathy. I will respect your timing and explore at the pace you feel is right for you.
