A Bit About Therapy

I believe that you can transform your life at any age and at whatever crossroad you may find yourself. A small desire, a hope, is just enough to get started. While you are not at fault for the pain you inherited from others, you are responsible for your own healing. This healing cannot happen without your participation. While that may sound scary, it should also empower you. It is important that you see therapy as an investment in yourself, rather than an attempt at "fixing what is wrong with you or others."

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy can be a great tool when working on personal goals such as learning to transform a traumatic experience, learning healthy ways to cope with stress, anxiety, and depression; addiction recovery, healthy boundaries, accepting love from others, or improving self-acceptance. During individual sessions you can expect that I will make every effort to really understand you and your unique experience, that we will collaborate on setting treatment goals that inspire and empower you so that the changes you make will improve the areas of your life that matter most to you.

Couples And Family Therapy

Do you feel stuck in your relationship and your attempt at solving the problem seems to make things worse? You may be too afraid to discuss specific problems because you fear that things will escalate and become unmanageable. Please reach out for help and let's start working on changing this dynamic. In our therapy sessions, we’ll work on creating rules for engagement so that your interaction will be honest, respectful, and kind. I will help you to make your partner feel safe so that you are able to negotiate competing demands. As a result of your effort, you will learn to reduce reactivity and emotional withdrawal, while creating emotional safety, intimacy and trust. These are the fundamental components to getting unstuck.
