I believe that most people come to therapy with the desire--whether spoken or unspoken--to connect with someone on a deep level, to experience genuine acceptance and support, and to meet the challenge of healing what feels fractured in themselves. My approach to therapy is based on the unshakable belief that human beings are capable of change and growth. It is also informed by the concepts of mindfulness and Eastern philosophy: This moment is all we've got. Our histories and futures are distractions from the experience of living fully in the present. Suffering arises from our inability to let go of the past, and our belief that worrying about the future will change its outcome for the better. It also comes from our thoughts and beliefs, beginning early in our lives, and how easily we accept what others say to and about us as fact. Helping people identify their core beliefs and automatic thoughts is a powerful tool that can lead to lasting change. The good news is that change is possible for anyone who is ready to try something different. It's a privilege for me to guide and encourage others as they move toward a more profound sense of personal peace and wholeness.

What I Usually Need to Know to Help

The first time you meet with me for therapy, you can expect quite a few questions. You will have probably already filled out some initial forms (a consent, what HIPAA is and how it works, demographic information, office policies, and an intake questionnaire). I will ask you about the specific issues or problems that have brought you to therapy. These may include mood symptoms (e.g., sadness, tearfulness, insomnia, isolating yourself), relationship troubles (frequent arguing or fighting with your spouse or significant other, or perhaps conflict with a co-worker or boss), or a change in your daily functioning (feeling fatigued, unmotivated, or irritable). It's not unusual to have several different types of symptoms, and your willingness to share them with me will help us decide together what kind of treatment might work best for you. We'll collaborate on a treatment plan that will identify your main goals for therapy, and steps that will lead to your achieving those goals.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

Being a therapist has made it possible for me to unify my desire to help others with a strong sense of intellectual curiosity, intuitive insight, and creative thinking. As a therapist I am able to tap into my strongest abilities and talents to help my patients in their healing processes. I find my work deeply satisfying and fulfilling.

Though I am passionate about mental health and psychotherapy for a number of reasons, the most significant reason is my own experience with depression, and the challenges it has presented in my life over the years. The compassion I feel for my patients is grounded in my own understanding of what it is like to struggle with a serious mental health issue. I was also a strong proponent of therapy long before I decided I wanted to be a therapist. My own experiences with therapy have taught me that it works, and make it easier for me to convince patients who are unsure about making an initial commitment to, or continuing with, their treatment.
