My Approach to Helping

Many people come to me seeking help with difficult emotions or dealing with difficult life circumstances and transitions in their lives. The most common concerns that bring clients in to see me are anxiety, depression, and relationship concerns. I work collaboratively with clients to establish what their goals and visions are and help them find ways to let go of outdated patterns, replacing them with new ways of being.

I offer a safe and nonjudgmental space and I can help you move through the limiting beliefs that have been stopping you and assist you in beginning to live with the awareness and choice of new possibilities. I can assist you in learning to listen to your own inner guidance, and in bringing new balance to your life.

My approach is eclectic and draws from cognitive psychology, neuroscience, mindfulness, somatic and transpersonal approaches as well as psychodynamic and family systems.
I am mainly doing tele-sessions via zoom at this time. I offer a complimentary phone consult to answer any questions and see if we might be a good fit.

More Info About My Practice

I offer a free 15-30 minute phone consultation for you to find out if I might be a good fit for you. Call me and we can talk about what your concerns are and any questions you may have about how we might work together.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

Of course, all of my own struggles in life have helped me to be more compassionate and have more insight into the human nature that we all share. We all have challenges and ups and downs in our lives. There may be some periods in our lives when there are many more challenges. We may have extra challenging life transitions that come up all at once, or sometimes we may face issues from our childhood that resurface after being repressed for many years. because we are better able to handle them. These are really good times to get help from a counselor.
