Everyone has times in life when they feel frustration, anxiety, or depletion. We live in a complex and demanding world, where it's difficult to maintain balance, focus, and perspective. A skilled therapist can help you understand yourself, create change in your circumstances, or develop effective coping skills when current circumstances cannot be changed.
With thoughtful and compassionate psychotherapy, I can help you bring about personal growth and change. I offer therapy for individuals, couples, children, teens and families. I value work with all genders, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and spiritual beliefs.
You may call me for a free phone consultation or to make an initial appointment to see if I am the right fit for you.
In my years of experience I have helped people combat depression and anxiety, take risks, gain self-confidence, become more successful, access their creativity, feel more fulfilled in their careers, and obtain the self-knowledge that leads to healthier, stronger, and more satisfying relationships.
I can help if you find yourself:
- Focusing more on what you are doing wrong, than focusing on what you are doing well.
- Unable to care for yourself because you are attending to the needs of others.
- Criticizing yourself more than seems reasonable.
- Hurting yourself physically.
- Staying in relationships that make you feel bad about yourself.
- Wanting to be in relationships that are different than the relationships you learned in your family, but not knowing how.
- Feeling lethargic or uninterested in things that used to bring you pleasure.
- Soothing yourself often with food, drugs or alcohol, work, television or otherwise distracting yourself from your present circumstances.
- Comparing yourself to others in a way that makes you feel bad about yourself.
- Questioning the meaning of life, or your purpose in life.
- Questioning the major choices you have made.
- Unable to connect with the people closest to you.
- Without the connections to family, friends or romantic partners that you would like.
- Unable to move on from past losses or traumas.
- Unable to forgive yourself.
- Wishing your life was considerably different than how it is.
- Thinking and hoping that the future will be very different than the present.
- Ruminating on things that happened to you in the past.
