Choosing to pursue therapy is a brave first step in making a change for the better in your life. Therapy requires a safe, trusting relationship between therapist and client. I work hard to establish a safe space in which you can be honest with yourself and find the strength and perseverance to tackle whatever is keeping you from the peace of mind and success that you seek.
Therapy for adolescents:
Adolescence is a time of major physical and emotional change. Often this is the time of life when lifelong challenges such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, addiction, and relationship difficulties first appear. Choosing to seek out therapy at this stage of life can mean the difference between setting yourself up for a lifetime of dysfunctional emotional patterns and establishing emotionally healthy self-awareness, attitudes and behaviors. I especially enjoy working with adolescents to help them understand and manage the difficult challenges they face at this crucial period of human development.
Therapy for individual adults:
The range of challenges we face in our adulthood is broad. I work with individuals to create lasting change in managing a wide range of problems, including depression, anxiety, eating disorders, addictions, relationship issues, grief, and many others.
Therapy for couples and families:
My work with couples is based on the premise that love relationships are a major foundation of emotional health and well-being. Learning to face ingrained disruptive patterns and communicate honestly and sensitively with those you love can vastly improve the quality of your relationships and your own sense of self-worth, empathy, and meaning in life.
