Psychotherapy is a clearing in a world that often overwhelms us and brings us pain and anguish, as well as joy and happy memories. Your psychotherapist's office is a safe place where you can stop, take your time, look, listen to yourself. A place to go when you feel stuck.

All of us humans have a problem to solve. It could be specific–a relationship, a job, a tormenting thought that won’t go away, trouble with food or drink, a death, a marriage. Or it could be more enigmatic – a vague feeling something is wrong, a heaviness of spirit, a blank in the mind. Or perhaps it is as simple, and as complex and universal, as the need to make sense of life.

But even when are clear about our problems, solutions are often illusive and harder to hold. Solutions cannot be ‘one-size-fits-all.’ Traversing life impasses requires, compassionate attention, steadfast effort, and care. Psychotherapy would give you a chance to delve into your complexity and depth and sufferings in the presence of another person—a professional in your corner, a witness whose presence makes your struggle bearable.

Psychotherapy is often open-ended: it may be short, long, or in-between. It is a process, a set of procedures, in which two people work hard together to understand the inner life of one of them. Think of psychotherapy as a particular kind of know-how–a knowing how to know yourself – that you can make your own and, when you are ready to go it alone, take along with you into the world.

If you're here, you're ready for a change. I try to create a space that feels safe and positive, where you can feel free to talk about whatever is on your mind. You may be trying to work through a recent loss or a past trauma, a relationship issue, or a nagging anxiety or sense of unease. Maybe you know that there is something standing between you and the life you want, but don't know how to change old patterns. I will meet you with openness, thoughtful questions, and honest feedback, and together we can process your emotions, build insight, and create room for you to develop goals aligned with your desires. My hope is that our work will bring you closer to a life that reflects your true longings and capabilities. I see individual adults and teens as well as couples and families. My approach is caring and collaborative and I would feel honored to be on your journey with you!

Now is the right time.

Making the decision to address personal problems is meaningful, and I recognize how difficult it can be to find the right therapist to help. It's important to know that therapy takes hard work and dedication to face realities of the past, present and future and sometimes even more difficult to address the role we play in our own struggles. I work to provide a balance of compassion, support and accountability, so that sorting through the web of issues becomes less like a trap and more like a chance for freedom of choice and a happy life.

It isn’t easy to face our fears and confront the thoughts, feelings, and experiences that we have been avoiding and trying to distract ourselves from. Therapy can help you to stop avoiding these challenging aspects of your life while working towards the attainment of your goals and a more rich, full and meaningful life. It is my mission to help guide you along this journey in a manner that is collaborative and respectful of where you are in the process. I provide individual psychotherapy for adults as well as coaching and consultation services for career related concerns and those experiencing life transitions.
