My Approach to Helping

I act as a gentle and collaborative guide on the journey to self-discovery. I am passionate about assisting you in uncovering self-defeating behaviors that can make life problematic whether they are related to family, friendships, marriage, academics or work.

My intention is to help you gain insight into yourself in order to implement changes that will lead you toward a more fulfilling life. I provide a safe place in which you can explore your thoughts and feelings about past and current life challenges. More importantly, I help you recognize strengths you already have and develop additional coping skills and strategies. My approach is one of compassion in an accepting, non-judgmental space. I am thrilled to be a witness and participate in your process of change!

More Info About My Practice

People come to me with anxiety, depression, marital problems, infidelity, family conflict, co-dependency and substance use/abuse issues.

I specialize in loss and grief - not just the death of a loved one but a variety of kinds of losses: divorce, relationship break-up, family disconnection, the death of a pet, loss of a job and life transitions.
In addition, I am passionate about working with those who have grown up in families with addiction and alcoholism and struggle with fear of intimacy, fear of abandonment and trust issues.

Lastly, I am skilled at helping couples address relationship issues including infidelity, negative communication patterns, and parenting conflicts.

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

I believe that seeking help does not mean you are weak; in fact, It takes strength and humility to examine difficult aspects of yourself and your life. Being humble means being open and teachable and understanding there is always more to learn about ourselves and others.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

I believe the therapeutic alliance is the most important aspect of therapy beyond techniques and interventions. I value creating a warm, non-judgmental, kind and reflective environment. We grow and learn through our relationships with others including the therapeutic relationship.
