There's an old saying: "If you can't talk about it, you can't work it out." I agree. This is where psychotherapy can help. If you choose to work with me, we will work together to help you learn how to express yourself in ways that help you to identify your needs and how to get your needs met. This isn't always so easy, in particular if we are feeling guilt, anxiety, or shame. Many people simply aren't used to talking about some of the challenges of their lives. Perhaps this speaks to you. I understand. That was me at one time. What I can tell you is this: for over 25 years my clients typically report feeling better because they feel heard, understood, and truly cared for.

Psychotherapy is based on the idea that we repress events and thoughts in our lives which make us unhappy or uncomfortable and that these repressions poison our behavior. Talking, going back and airing these repressions, therefore, renders them harmless. If this were true, then therapists would have the happiest lives, lowest divorce rates, and most well adjusted children. They don't! I do not believe this works and do not do it. I also do not label my clients with codes or numbers--surely a dehumanizing act which makes therapy more difficult.

Whether on an individual, family, or group level the primary aim of psychotherapy is to assist individuals with developing increased insight into their experiences and to encourage behavior change in an effort to resolve psychological, emotional, and behavioral difficulties and promote growth. Some forms of psychotherapy focus on thoughts, thoughts processes and beliefs, others focus more so on emotional responses and interpretation of experiences (e.g., the meaning), while others are most concerned with observable behavior.

Psychotherapy, the process of exploring, understanding and finding solutions for personal and situational challenges, is often very helpful for people facing a range of issues. In fact, psychotherapy has been shown to have similar effects on the brain as taking commonly prescribed medications for depression and anxiety! I have 14 years of clinical experience and have helped many adults and adolescents to work find relief from distress, deeper self-awareness and greater satisfaction in life. I strive to create a supportive and comfortable atmosphere within which people can explore sometimes difficult topics and find their way towards greater overall wellness.
