"Therapy doesn't have to be a mysterious and confusing process. I believe that it should be linked directly to one's personal goals and desire for change. I'll work with you to enhance your self-knowledge, expand your emotional awareness and thinking to provide you new ways of solving problems and enhancing well-being. My style is direct and collaborative and aims to identify patterns of thinking, feeling, acting and relating that reinforce fears and negative attitudes, thereby limiting your ability to pursue your goals. Exploring the underlying forces and dynamics driving those patterns opens up new avenues for growth and change."
"As a psychotherapist with 25+ years of experience I offer clients compassionate informed assistance in identifying obstacles to happiness and emotional well-being. Using an eclectic approach of exploration, support, self-observation and education we can work together towards growth and change. While some may view therapy as a luxury or a last-resort intervention, choosing to engage in therapy is a proactive strategy to address obstacles to optimal functioning and well-being. Different than relying on a friend, a therapist is a professional who can guide you in the investigation of these obstacles with an effective evidence based approach."

"You've come here because you know it's time to reach out for help and support. Therapy is a relationship unlike any other, a unique opportunity to focus on what's important for you, to be listened to, to be heard, and to have an honest and compassionate reflection of your experience. It is a sharing of your life path with another person for a time to help you on your way. Sometimes we all need someone to help us find our way. Perhaps we get depressed or anxious by what's behind us or in front of us."
Marriage & Family Therapist, MFT
"I specialize in helping adults overcome anxiety and depression. As a Certified EMDR Therapist, I focus on helping clients recover from the effects of trauma. I also enjoy working with couples to develop effective communication skills and reduce destructive conflict. I strive to provide clients with a warm, secure environment in which they feel safe to open up and explore painful experiences from the past that need healing. My approach combines the perspective of long-term psychodynamic psychotherapy with more practical cognitive-behavioral methods, as well as using the latest research from neuroscience about how our minds develop and change."
"Life is change and, mostly, you've been rolling with the punches. But complicated life transitions can leave anyone at a loss.

"By giving yourself the gift of therapy you can begin finding ways to invite support and healthy change into your life and into your relationships. Make the decision to achieve more life satisfaction and balance by taking the time to challenge yourself to grow and heal.

"Over the last twenty five years, I have been fortunate to partner with an amazingly diverse group of clients. My ability to make strong therapeutic relationships with people of varied backgrounds, ages and life issues is very important to my work as a psychotherapist. What I, other therapists, and many clients have known about importance of fostering these working relationships is now confirmed and further elevated by research: the therapeutic alliance between therapist and client is the strongest predictor of therapy outcome."

"Being a therapist is one of the greatest joys in my life. It allows me the opportunity to encourage and witness the human growth process in a profound and personal way. Research shows that modern day distress is caused by isolation and disconnection, which many of us feel even in relationships. We are social creatures who thrive when we feel connected, especially to those who matter the most to us. The work and goal of therapy is to explore and strengthen our connections, first and foremost to ourselves, then to our partners, our families, or people in general."

"I help people free themselves from anxiety, depression, insomnia, obsession and compulsion. The drives to fill emptiness, mask fear, lessen pain, augment pleasure, deaden guilt or frustration can become powerful and seemingly inescapable cycles of abuse or dependence. People struggling with anxiety, depression and addiction need outside assistance to develop effective coping strategies and therapy to treat underlying issues."

Having a safe and supportive base allows you to feel like someone always has your back, enabling you to develop the skills, abilities, and perspectives that may have felt too overwhelming to do so on your own.
