I’ve been a licensed psychologist since 1992. Having provided therapy for over 30 years, throughout my career I have worked with clients experiencing acute or chronic depression, anxiety, relationship problems, family issues, low self-esteem, eating disorders, self-injurious behaviors and those who are in the midst of life’s many transitions.
Right now, you may be feeling low, depressed, anxious, fearful or just plain “stuck”. Your head may be spinning and you might be totally overwhelmed by so many thoughts and emotions. Perhaps you just need someone who you can vent to, someone who will listen, support and guide you.
Finally, it may be one of those times in your life when too many challenges are converging all at once and you don’t know what to do first.
I provide support and validation, as I believe that these are the bedrocks of forming a good therapeutic relationship.
I use CBT, DBT, Behavioral Therapy, Supportive Therapy, Mindfulness and Solution-based interventions to help you understand your emotions, thoughts and behaviors and develop healthy ways to cope with the challenges you are facing.
I have worked in a variety of environments including college counseling centers, outpatient clinics for anxiety and/or phobias, eating disorder groups, inpatient psychiatric hospitals and I have maintained a private practice.
I am a warm, nonjudgemental and supportive therapist and do not believe that any one type of intervention will help every person with every problem.
Most importantly, I strongly believe that the therapeutic relationship should be collaborative, and work with my clients as a team. I tend to be a creative brainstormer, believe that sometimes, laughter is is the best medicine, and I take a pretty active and proactive approach to therapy.
Together, we can organize your thoughts and work with whatever is feeling so overwhelming right now. I look forward to working with you and help support, guide and help you develop coping mechanisms that you can then use throughout your life.
