Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW
Psychotherapy offers an exciting opportunity to find fulfillment, authenticity, and joy in your life. Finding the right therapist is the first step, and if you trust your instinct you are bound to find a genuine connection that can lead to a meaningful collaboration and sustainable change.
I work together with my patients to identify what is getting between them and their most vibrant lives, meaningful relationships, and substantive work. Examining perceptions and relationship patterns, many of which have been in place for years, can help people to understand what isn't working for them and lead to insight and growth.
My approach is flexible and straightforward. The treatment is determined by the needs of the patient, whether they want to to resolve relationship issues, manage chronic anxiety and depression, work through trauma, sort out painful experiences like divorce and infertility, or examine questions of identity and fulfillment. Sometimes a person just has a nagging feeling that something isn't right in their life, often when appearances would suggest otherwise, and they want to explore that dissatisfaction and self-doubt. People can get used to a low-grade misery which, like a bad smell, they barely notice is there after a while. There is no reason to live like this, and I can help you to move into a place of self-understanding and change, where feeling good is your baseline.
