However, finding someone that can really be open to you, as you are and meet you as a partner, is worth the work.
You are not alone. Therapy is a partnership and you are the starting point. What is it you need? Is there something missing? Do you feel stuck repeating the same day over and over again? Open up to your experiences in the present and the past and move towards what you want, with kindness and wisdom. We work together to develop the skills and strategies that you need to be free and to release what is holding you back from a meaningful life. Allow me to bring my professional experience to partner with you in realizing the life you want.

"Just trust yourself, then you will know how to live," (Goethe) Yet, trusting yourself depends on knowing yourself - what to do and how to live follows. Frustration, disappointment, anxiety and depression are signals that there is more to know about yourself. Our work will unravel the assumptions and patterns that undermine your capacity to create the love and work life that you desire. For over 30 years I have helped individuals and couples negotiate pivotal life transitions: leaving home, developing a career, finding a mate, parenting, the empty nest and aging.

I work with individual adolescents and adults, as well as couples.
I view therapy as a collaborative process where we work together to understand the challenges you are facing. My initial goal is to provide empathy and relief, while working in the longer term to help you feel more open and able to access parts of your experience that may be hidden. This can be scary and vitalizing, and I view work with each client as a unique journey where the path to healing unfolds over time. For me, the ultimate goal of therapy is to help you both accept and challenge yourself, and thereby become more fully who you are.

It is actually normal for couples who love each other deeply to reach an 'unworkable stand off' at some point in the relationship.
Being "stuck" in a relationship is scary, painful and frustrating. Difficult conversations go in circles, escalate into mutual antagonism or get avoided completely. You love your partner deeply but in the heat of anger all you can see is "what's wrong with them" and when you verbalize that things go from bad to worse. By the time you read this you've likely done as much as you can but you've reached an impasse. My focus is couples therapy and individual therapy for people who have hit a wall in a relationship and want help.

For over twenty years I have helped individuals, couples and families discover alternatives to the narrow feedback loops created by stress, depression and worry.
Do you ever find that the more you try to get rid of painful emotions, the more overwhelmed you feel? Life can sometimes feel like a straw finger puzzle: the more you pull, the tighter the grip. This is partly because life is challenging. It is also because in times of stress, we are wired to protect ourselves by focusing on potential dangers. Although adaptive for some situations, this wiring can become a closed feedback loop: the harder you try, the more you see only problems; and the more problems you see, the more you lose sight of the strengths and resources that facilitate change.

It might be a new chapter in your life that brings unexpected trials: adulthood, marriage, parenting, step-parenting, divorce, children leaving home, caring for your aging parents, the loss of a loved one, or facing your own mortality. It might be a conflict in a relationship with a loved one or in your professional life.
