When we feel lost, stuck, or out of control, therapy helps us unlock unconscious assumptions or "blocks" and gives us the emotional awareness we need to make change. My goal is to help you work through your pains and dilemmas so you can find vitality and purpose in your work, love, and family life.
I provide individual, family, and group therapy. While medications are always an option, I specialize in talk therapy treatments that result in minimal to no medication.
Using a psychoanalytically based, emotionally focused approach, I help you experience and understand your reactions to the extent you would like at the pace you prefer. This collaborative process provides the chance for you to identify and address aspects of who you are so you can improve your relationships and enjoy fulfillment in both your work and home lives.
