“It's not your fault, and you're not alone. Our lives are full of change and growth, which can be challenging and difficult. In spite of our best efforts, cycles of expectation and disappointment can leave us feeling confused, isolated and frustrated. You've probably tried many strategies to improve your life, but reactive habits often limit us. I'd like to help you use these challenges as an opportunity to discover what's really missing in your life, and to make positive lasting growth toward greater fulfillment and better relationships.

“"Stuck." At some point in our lives, we all feel it. I help people link their desire for things to be different to the places they feel stuck, healthfully and effectively. You don't need to know how to change, we start with where you are. I like the Chinese proverb, "Acceptance and change are brothers, but acceptance is the older brother." By helping you learn to first accept where you are (even if now it seems impossible), suffering is naturally reduced and there is more energy and room for growth. You get to like yourself now AND change.

Marriage & Family Therapist, LMFT
“Sometimes life presents us with difficult, painful, or even seemingly unbearable challenges. Sometimes we, ourselves, can be a source of the pain and challenges. Either way, we must be able to access our resources -- inner and outer -- to cope with the pain, the imbalance, the overwhelm, the stuckness ... and, ultimately, to learn, heal, and grow from our experiences..... My job is to help you best utilize resources you already have and to offer you more tools to help you change undesirable patterns in yourself and your life.

“If you or your child has anxiety, ADHD, or depression, you probably feel frustrated and overwhelmed. You want the best for your self and your family and you may have reservations about using medications. You don't have to struggle alone anymore. I want to hear your experience and help you have more harmony in your life and in your home. While talk therapy can be supportive, some issues are brain based and need a different kind of guidance. Neurofeedback is a brain training program that supports you or your child in changing these patterns.

“In my work with individuals, couples, children, teens and families I strive to create a warm, nurturing and compassionate environment for personal exploration and healing. In this space all parts of you are welcome. I see therapy as a collaboration where you and I partner to create an achievable plan to improve your relationships, increase your sense of vitality, and work towards your personal goals. In my work, I have witnessed how life's challenges can create emotional scars that then consciously or unconscious run our lives. These scars can manifest as a variety of mental health and relational issues.

“Empathy is the root of my work. People usually seek therapy due to depression, anxiety or pain regarding relationships. In an atmosphere of warmth and compassion, my goal is to help you deal with painful emotions and to understand and accept yourself. I am an exquisite listener with an ability to soothe others pain. Self Psychology is the theory which informs my work. It's based on seeing the world through the other person's eyes. I've also had two years in a study program at the CG Jung Institute and am a 30 year practitioner of meditation.

Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, MFT
“The choice of a therapist is deeply personal, and can be difficult to make from the cursory information on a website. Thus, I offer a reduced-rate introductory session, during which you and I can get to know each other and discuss how our work together can benefit you. I have come to see that talking about problems, while important, is not necessarily enough to solve them. Thus, I provide tools to get at the root of your troubles, techniques to understand and change them, and guidance to help you steer your course to a more joyful and fulfilling life.

Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, LMFT
“I offer a modern engaging style of therapy. My philosophical approach recognizes the struggles and pains we share as humans. Common themes in my work include motivation, choice, isolation-connection, uncertainty, and awe. Our work together is to look with curiosity at what is important to you - your wants and the obstacles that hinder you. Despite the pressures of others and of culture, and the "shoulds" that nag and haunt us, I believe that we move more freely and live more richly when we come to recognize our fears and trust our wants.
