AREAS OF EXPERTISE & SPECIALTIES

I work with many types of clients. The area that I specially focus on is chronic illness and the impact of that on daily living and relationships. It is common to see people suffering from anxiety and depression as they manage illness and this is a great place to focus on mindfulness and related behaviors. In addition, I work often with couples on communication and parenting as well as individuals focused on career goals, career changes, and phase of life.

MY THERAPY BELIEFS

I believe that people have the right to be happy, but that happiness is our own responsibility. We cannot rely on spouses, family, or friends to make us happy. The first step is figuring out what we want. The next step is creating healthy relationships with the people we choose to have in our lives. I think therapy should involve giving people the tools they need to make decisions around life goals. I believe it is critical to be able to advocate for ourselves. What is more important than putting thought and effort into our own lives?

COMMON TYPES OF CLIENTS I HELP

I see clients starting at age 10. I work with individuals, couples, and families. Most of my clients are high functioning, successful, educated people who have jobs and good support. They are often suffering from anxiety, depression, grief, or anger issues and find that they are having impairment in their relationships. Most of these relationship issues stem from problems with communication, and/or boundaries. Often these problems are exacerbated by phase of life changes. I believe therapy is essential for helping to manage the challenges we all face in everyday life and is a proactive way of caring for self.

WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT BEING A THERAPIST

The thing I love most about being a therapist is being able to have a positive impact on my clients lives. They are the ones doing the work and making the changes.

Verbalizing feelings can have a significant therapeutic effect on the brain.
