People come to me when they want change in their lives. They often come feeling empty despite successes, or have difficulties maintaining healthy relationships. Often, they feel stuck in their lives but do not know why or how to make productive changes. Psychotherapy examines the ways we repeat disappointing and frustrating patterns. I help people discover those patterns — roadblocks to personal fulfillment — and together, we create strategies to inspire and motivate them to create lasting change. These changes are transformative, impacting my clients and their relationships. The results are increased personal and professional satisfaction — better day-to-day experiences in work and life.
I also focus on culture, which is very important to the way we perceive ourselves and are perceived by the world. My clients begin to feel better when they come understand their challenges through the lenses of race, culture, class, gender and ethnicity — cultural forces that have profound impact on our personal and professional development.
With over 20 years experience, my style is solution-focused, collaborative, flexible, and interactive. My training includes psychoanalytic and cognitive behavioral therapies, with specific training in substance abuse, codependency, and 12-step modalities. My expertise also includes anxiety, emotional intelligence, conflict management, work-life integration and cultural diversity.
While many clients find that longterm consulting pays for itself, short-term options are totally available and often produce lasting results.
