Practice Description:
I am currently offering both telehealth (phone or Zoom) as well as in-person services to vaccinated individuals.

I work with professional adults of all ages in individual and group psychotherapy.
It’s common to not feel heard or understood well enough in life. And yet, the experience of being heard and understood by another person is how we come to know ourselves and to make changes. Our lives can be so busy and full of distraction that it may be hard to imagine slowing down enough to find this kind of relationship. But psychotherapy is exactly that: a collaborative relationship in which the focus is on your experience in the world, your relationships and inner life, and what you need or want to change.
Over many years of providing therapy, I remain moved by a basic human fact: as much as we want change in our lives, our brains are "wired" to keep things safe, familiar and unhappy. This dilemma informs my approach to psychotherapy which I will tailor to meet your specific needs.
I encourage you to take the first step of getting help - call or email me. Together, we'll work to create an understanding of your life, where you are now, how you got here, and where you'd like to be when you are doing better.
