My Approach to Helping

If you have started to notice that anxiety, depression or a relationship issue is affecting the quality of your life, let today be the day that you stop struggling alone. Whether you are consumed by relentless fears, drowning in sadness or constantly feeling the strain between you and the person you love, therapy is a great place to start to fight back.

My approach is informal and warm. I am passionate about giving you a safe space to share your pain. I aim to understand your perspective and to be honest with you. I work from a Psychodynamic perspective which explores intra-psychic processes and their interplay with interpersonal relationships. MY AREAS OF FOCUS ARE: couples, EMDR, as well as anxiety and depression in adults, children and teens.

I provide couples therapy with a focus on the deeper emotional issues occurring in your relationship as well as the practical tools that you need. I offer therapy for dating couples, engaged and married couples. I provide therapy for adults and teens who are facing anxiety and depression. I provide EMDR treatment for a variety of presenting issues.

I offer a free 20 minute phone consultation to help you discover if I am the right fit for you. It is crucial that you find a therapist that you feel comfortable with.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

The best way to make a decision here is to take advantage of free phone consultations. Many therapists offer them and it is a great way to learn a lot about the therapist and your own goals for therapy.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

First, it is exciting that despite your negative experience, you are here looking for another therapist. Second, you are on the right track because you are guiding your process instead of letting your negative experience dictate your next steps. Each therapist is different and needs to be a fit for your personality. I encourage you to continue what keeping your mental health a priority, regardless of the behavior of others.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

Because each person is unique, the length of therapy is unique as well. This is a conversation that will be included in the process of therapy. Therapy sessions are typically held once a week.
