Welcome

Psychotherapy can offer you a unique opportunity to address your challenges while deepening your understanding as to why they may be occurring. Therapy can provide relief from possible symptoms, such as anxiety or depression.

Specializing in Anxiety, Depression, Psychoanalysis, Couples Therapy, Parenting, and Chronic Illness

Anxiety

Over the past 20 years, I’ve helped people find relief from anxiety in all its forms, from mild stress to panic disorders to phobias and OCD. No matter the anxiety symptoms you’re experiencing, I am here to listen to what is really going on for you. In my office, you can express your deepest thoughts and emotions and trust that you will feel heard and understood.

Depression

Struggling with depression doesn’t mean there is something wrong with you any more than a broken leg does. If you broke your leg, you would seek treatment. Seeking help for depression is no different.

I know how isolating depression can be. When you don’t believe that you matter, it can be difficult to reach out for help. That’s why it’s so important to learn about depression and start to understand exactly what you’re experiencing. As an expert guide, I can help you realize that you are not broken. I can help you feel seen, heard and whole.

Psychoanalysis

Psychoanalysis is an effective treatment for many people with moderate to severe difficulties and who have had unsuccessful attempts with briefer therapies. The person best able to undergo psychoanalysis is someone who, no matter how incapacitated at the time, is basically, or potentially, a sturdy individual.

Couples Counseling
& Parenting

Often times couples wait too long to get help. Relationships change over time and it isn’t unusual for couples to have disagreements and struggles. As a trained couples therapist my role is to work with both partners equally to help you reconnect, stop blaming patterns and understand each other’s needs.

Parents today have new challenges and stressors and often find it difficult to know how to keep up with their busy lives, work and parenting their children. I often work with parents who need consultation about new challenges they face in the changing development of their child or in the family dynamics.

Chronic Illness Counseling

Although it’s so common to feel isolated, angry and scared when dealing with a chronic health condition, it’s important to remember that you are not alone. Through a safe, supportive, therapeutic relationship, it is possible to experience relief, let go of some anxiety and feel able to breathe and relax again. You can gain important knowledge about how to cope right now, which can be priceless, and create effective coping skills, practice self-care strategies and strengthen relationships, which can serve you over the long-term. With the help of an experienced and compassionate therapist, it is possible to effectively deal with the confusion, challenges and trauma that come with chronic disease and live with increased confidence, clarity and ease.
