When a bump ... or a boulder ... in the road throws our life out of balance, collaborating on strategies focused on solutions is the most efficient use of time and resources. Psychotherapy is a collaboration between the therapist and client in a warm, safe, non-judgmental environment. Best of all, it helps you not feel so alone while having the
confidentiality to look at private issues.
Adolescents, Young Adults and Parenting Teens endure many changes in a short period of time as they navigate through the inconsistencies of their lives. Therapy can provide the extra support they may need to manage these changes on top of the incredible social and academic pressures they face.
Parenting a teen can be a very tough job. While we know more than ever about their development, today's cultural influences have left us feeling less prepared and more scared, than ever. Even the best parents have questions. I can help you understand adolescent development and behaviors more clearly and together we can develop more effective parenting strategies.
Adults A private, safe and judgment free environment allows you to explore issues you are struggling with; a warm, compassionate and supportive atmosphere helps you deal with feelings that seem unmanageable.
Eating Disorders When the determination to improve one's self image through diet and exercise becomes an obsession with weight, the impact on one's social, emotional and mental well being can be devastating.

I integrate a variety of therapy techniques in my approach including Brain based therapies, Psychodynamic (insight oriented), CBT, Family and Relational Systems, and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), depending on the issues presented. Change occurs on both emotional and neurobiological levels when a deeper understanding is combined with healthy coping skills ("take away" tools) - applicable approaches to dealing with situations - ultimately leading to new, healthier engrained behaviors and a happier, more fulfilling life.
Research has continued to produce the same results - regardless of the therapist's theoretical background, it is the relationship that heals. You are worth the time! Make as many contacts as necessary, meeting with as many therapists as possible until you feel you are with someone you can talk to and you are in an environment where you are comfortable yet know you will be challenged. Invest in yourself!
