There are times when life feels bigger than us. This can be wonderful when we are filled with love, overcome with gratitude or even connected to a force and flow greater than ourselves. However, the pendulum swings both ways and sometimes we can feel these sensations associated with fear, overwhelm, hopelessness, helplessness, anger, anxiety or even pain. It is in these moments where we sometimes struggle to "explain" our experience and seek guidance and support to provide relief. My goal as a therapist is to assist people in regaining their balance, help to deepen understanding of self and encourage self-discovery and emotional growth.
Psychotherapy is an effective way to help us understand our behavior and its connection to our inner emotional experience. It helps to resolve common problems that often impact our daily functioning including depression, anxiety, stress, relationship issues, bereavement, and difficult life phases. Psychotherapy is a supportive process promoting exploration, growth and change.
As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist I offer psychotherapy and am also a Registered Art Therapist. This approach is known to be particularly successful in working with children and adolescents, and can be very effective with adults and couples.
My experience includes treating symptoms such as addiction, depression, anxiety, PTSD, self-esteem and self-image issues as well as relationship issues. In treating families, my experience includes addressing behavior and facilitating parental emotional attunement, in addition to working with parents and children through divorce, separation, and co-parenting.
Because fit is important in forming a therapeutic relationship, I offer a free initial consultation at my office.
