Psychotherapy can change lives. Sometimes, we feel depressed, anxious, confused, lonely,and/or a host of other feelings. Life seems overwhelming. It is important during these times to get support and help to deal with these emotions.

All of us have concerns and issues of a relational or psychological nature. Talking through these concerns in an objective, safe and nonjudgmental relationship of trust with a experienced therapist is what psychotherapy can offer you. Psychotherapy can help you think through life's perplexing problems as well as assist you in knowing yourself better allowing you to make clearer choices, improve important relationships and enhance the meaning and quality of your life. I have helped many people through my 32 years of practice to face, embrace and resolve their life's difficulties in an atmosphere of honesty, support and reassurance. Perhaps psychotherapy can do that for you as well.

I do short-term solutions-oriented therapy to help you think differently about yourself and your world and then develop skills to better deal with your issues from the past or to better deal with current areas of difficulty. We start by assessing problem areas, and then deciding together how best to approach them and what result we would like at the end of therapy. Therapy itself involves talking in sessions, and feedback from me,but also many other skill-building activities such as reading, practicing new behaviors between sessions, and doing things to reduce life stress.

Psychotherapy can also be called, 'talk therapy', with the ultimate goal towards bringing relief from problematic symptoms that may stem from emotional and/or psychological turmoil. I have worked with clients in psychotherapy in a number of ways, but namely creating an open space during a therapeutic session in which an individual can discover new insights into their problem areas in order to create healthy choices for improved relationships. During psychotherapy, we will look at conflicts and problem areas that create continued roadblocks & conjointly examine how someone's past experiences may be reflective towards making changes today; we will unpack this impasse to open new roads ahead!

A therapist can either build a strong alliance with you or demolish that alliance. I strive to build a solid one with you in which you feel accepted in a safe, secure place-- safe to share your innermost struggles and fears freely, with no fear of judgement or shame. Seek that therapist whose style resonates with yours and is a good match for your needs and personality. There are psychodynamic approaches (more Freudian and clinical) and person-centered (Rogerian). I am person-centered and will accompany you on your journey--facilitating your progress so that you can become your own counselor over time-- independent and capable of flourishing and developing sound judgment and inner peace.

The process of therapy is and should be tailored to each individual's life experience. Research shows that clients in therapy, who seek assistance to deal with a whole range of issues, challenges, thoughts, and emotions, can experience a positive benefit. In our collaborative work, we will complete a comprehensive biopsychosocial assessment, where we look at many life factors that may be contributing to those challenges for which therapy is being considered. After an assessment, we will have a clearer idea of core values, possible goals and many ideas on designing a flexible plan that is easy to understand and use to bring about the transformation desired.

As co-therapists we bring greater awareness of what is going on in the room. We focus on the here and now. We bring experience in Gestalt, humanistic, mindfulness and narrative therapy into the room. We strive to create a safe and collaborative environment. We work together to help couples understand their patterns of behavior, acting out, shutting down and arguing. We focus on how a couple fights and not what they fight about. When we help you to understand and accept who you are now, change becomes a reality.

People go to therapy to address a problem that is distressing them and causing interference in a significant aspect of their life (work, social life, interpersonal relationships, sleep, etc.) After the immediate problem is resolved or significantly reduced, most of my clients continue to stay in therapy because they have started noticing a change in themselves that they like! To me, therapy isn't just about reducing symptoms. It is about much more. It's about experiencing meaning in life. It's about connecting with the best version of ourselves and knowing that person is there within us. That's true self-confidence. My clients tend to tell me they feel more "whole". That's therapy to me.
