“Therapy is the act of building a relationship. Even though the relationship is different than a normal one we’d have with a friend, we are practicing what a healthy relationship looks like.”

Before coming to private practice I worked extensively with people in recovery from substance mis-use and compulsive behaviors ranging from drugs/alcohol, sex/love addiction and difficult relationships, overspending/compulsive shopping, co-depedency, and other life-compromising compulsive behaviors. 

I work with people on a wide range of issues. The following are a few of my specialties (this list is not all-inclusive):

  • Relationship Issues

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Self-esteem 

  • Grief

  • Bereavement

If I have never been to therapy before, what should I expect? How do I know if I should go, and how do I start?

The cultural stigma that there may be something wrong with you if you “need” therapy is still a barrier to many who can benefit from therapy. We’re fortunate to live in a city that, to a great extent, celebrates personal growth; but not everyone has received this message from their families, cultures, or communities of origin. 

 If you’re experiencing emotional challenges in any area of your life, therapy is a safe and often enjoyable way to work through any emotional issues. Coming to therapy is also a way to decide if therapy is right for you. Starting can be a great relief. Come in for an initial session and tell me what it is that’s sitting on your shoulders and leave the office that day hopefully feeling lighter by just sharing it and knowing you are with someone who cares and has the expertise to help you move through it.
