Now accepting new clients for telehealth appointments. Somethings just not right. You're not connecting the way you used to. They seem distant or uninteresting. Something needs to change and talking about feelings doesn't cut it. We have served and grown used to one life. Making changes creates challenges, and any great effort has unintentional and unexpected consequences: culture shock, personal relationships, grief, anxiety, depression, institutionalization.

In today's society it is not easy being "different". As humans, we need connection, but sometimes it's hard to build relationships if who you are doesn't match the expectations of family or loved ones. Lack of connection can lead to depression and anxiety, especially if you believe you don't fit in or experience real oppression. Relating authentically to family, friends and co-workers presents unique challenges and counseling can help, especialliy if it's done together with partners and family members. I believe in the power of relationship--to ourselves, our loved ones, our co-workers, our animal companions, and our environment.

I work with people having a wide range of concerns. Areas of specialty include identity formation, relationship dynamics, loss, and issues of spirituality (both questioning and growth). I work especially well with persons who are curious about themselves and their ways of interacting with the world. I practice relationally-based psychoanalytic psychotherapy; meaning that, where relevant, we talk about relationships in your life impacting your way of navigating the world. We have each found ways to survive our world as best we can; at some point, we may consider wanting to shift these ways because they do not work as well as they once did.

Therapy is an opportunity for personal development in a safe, nonjudgmental, respectful, private, and supportive environment. It is natural to feel overwhelmed at times and it is not a sign of weak character to seek help. Through therapy we can learn to manage our emotions more effectively, improve our relationships and communication, bolster our confidence and self-esteem, and minimize our distress.
