Individual Therapy

My work with you begins from my deep respect for the self-awareness and courage it takes to seek support. From our first session together, I aim to create an optimally safe and trusting relationship, a safe harbor in what may be tumultuous life seas. Gently but actively, I will help guide you through the places inside where you feel stuck, afraid, or that are simply too painful to examine.

In our sessions, I won’t just sit back silently; my approach to therapy is warm, interactive, experiential and engaged. Over time, as our work together brings light to those places of pain and confusion, new ways of approaching old problems will become apparent, and presenting symptoms—such as depressive thinking, anxiety or rage—can subside as emotional and psychological wounds that may have felt unbearable begin to heal. Read more about my approach to individual therapy.

In my practice, I work with individuals facing a variety of life challenges that include:

  • Loss, grief and bereavement
  • Depression
  • Anxiety and panic disorders
  • Relationship Issues
  • Trauma, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Self-harming behaviors, such as over- or under-eating and cutting
  • Issues related to shame or fear
  • Substance abuse and addiction
  • Chronic pain or illness
  • Low self-esteem and/or self-worth
  • Spiritual issues and crises
  • Challenges related to work including unemployment, workplace stress and defining and finding a meaningful livelihood
