Entering therapy takes courage. When life presents challenges that are too difficult to manage on one’s own, it’s helpful to collaborate with a psychotherapist to create change that is both tangible and meaningful.
Over the course of more than 20 years of practice, I’ve had the privilege of working with individuals, groups, families and couples from a wide array of ages and ethnic and cultural backgrounds. I embrace the importance and uniqueness of diverse cultural backgrounds that influence one’s life.
My approach is best described as: interactive, compassionate, humorous, nonjudgmental and respectful. My therapeutic style is grounded in existential/humanistic, relational, and cognitive-behavioral (CBT) modalities to assist clients through the processes of change—taking an open-dialogue, collaborative approach to the therapeutic relationship. I will encourage you to guide treatment that suits your needs.
I strongly believe that clients have the ability to grow regardless of historical, personal, professional, or relational challenges. I specialize in assisting clients as they face a range of interwoven issues that can be major aspects of midlife transitions. A midlife crisis can be an opportunity for personal growth and transformation; creating a new meaning for the next stage of life. Health concerns, changes in sexuality, mood fluctuations, relationship challenges, aging parents, job-related confusion, trauma, substance abuse, financial worries, and the family history that often impacts any of these areas. I also have more than a decade of experience working with adolescents and young adults struggling with perfectionism, procrastination, questions related to sexuality, inattention, anxiety, depression, assertion, avoidance, and substance use, as they navigate through life transitions.
