Profession: Marriage and Family Therapist
Services: Psychotherapy/Counseling
Practice Description: We are called to be in relationship, but many people struggle with intimacy. We want to get close, but fear that we will be required to compromise ourselves to get what we want and need. Whether your struggle is due to family patterns, trauma you've experienced, depression, anxiety, addiction, or personality issues, you need someone who understands your longings as well as your fears. I can partner with you, helping you to be authentically yourself while building nurturing, two-way connections with safe people. I'll also help you learn to protect yourself from those who are not safe.

Therapy can equip you and teach you how to use the skills that allow you to be strong enough to withstand emotional storms, yet flexible enough to allow for appropriate intimacy in relationships. As Louisa May Alcott wrote, "I am no longer afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship." This can be true for you, too.

It takes some unique emotional skills to thrive in the brutal emotional landscape of the entertainment industry. I work frequently with actors, artists, writers, and entertainment industry professionals as part of my practice. Investment in your emotional repertoire may be as critical to your success as any workshop, showcase, or audition you've done.

Additional Comments: I work in a wonderful group practice and training site. If I'm not the right therapist for you, I am happy to connect you with one of my colleagues who can meet your needs in terms of expertise, available hours, or fee. Our trainees and interns work under the supervision of licensed therapists yet work at lower fees, offering you the best therapy at affordable prices.
