If you are struggling in life or feeling stuck and wanting to change, I offer a place for you to explore, gain insight, and experience growth and healing. I help people to identify negative patterns in their lives and in their relationships -- and then I help them to change those patterns. In the words of the Serenity Prayer, I help people have 'the serenity to accept the things they cannot change, the courage to change the things they can, and the wisdom to know the difference.'

There is hope and healing in psychotherapy. Whatever you are struggling with, I welcome the opportunity to help you through it. Please give me a call so we can talk about how I can help.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) I love to see individuals get free from their individual issues, especially those self-sabatoguing defenses frequently learned from family of origin dynamics. I will help you be more OK with who you are and have more freedom from your past and thus have more contentment and success within yourself as well as others. I will help you be more confident, less anxious and less controlled by others. Your self-awareness and ability to stop underlying negative patterns will become easier to see and to change. In my 20 years of being a psychotherapist I have developed much expertise and have seen hundreds of people psychologically healed up.

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 human beings, we are wired for healing and growth. In the context of a safe, warm, attuned therapeutic relationship we can face emotions and situations that seem too overwhelming to face alone. My style is collaborative, respectful, and works in the 'here and now' with a belief in the human capacity for transforming difficult situations into opportunities for growth. Psychotherapy can help you connect with yourself and others, develop resilience to handle life's challenges, and assist you in navigating life's transitions.

Brief therapy focused on solutions to help reduce anxiety, fears, worry, panic attacks, anxiety attacks, stress and obsessing. While understanding the past and the 'why' of having anxiety, fears, or even phobias may help, what really makes recovery effective is learning new skills for relaxation, new ways to think productively, and the lifestyle behaviors that reduce stress and anxiety. My 23 years of working with these problems and the associated depression that often follows with anxiety and the major clinical research agree that cognitive - behavioral therapy works. I use a variety of tools to help you get relief and overcome fears, anxiety, worry, and depression.

My approach is primarily experiential, emotion focused. Cognitive therapy is very widely used. My problem with cognitive work is that it is SO cognitive. We are most in touch with an opportunity to change when we FEEL something. Feeling is a much scarier place to be than thinking. I hope prospective clients trust that I will handle their feelings and experiences with great sensitivity and concern. Ultimately I know you want to feel better, and have a life worth celebrating.

Psychotherapy is really about learining how to live consciously. We go through our lives making decisions and choices and not really being aware of our intentions and the likely consequences of our choices. Living consciously requires intention and accountability. Our intention can either come from a place of fear or a place of love. If we choose based upon fear, the result will likely bring more fear into one's life. If our intention comes from a place of love, our decisions will likely result in healthy choices and relationships. I can hlep you in the process of living a more conscious and fullfilling life.
