I provide individual and couples therapy to adults. I work with clients on many issues, and have particular interests in the following areas:

  • Depression. While we all feel sad at times, sometimes sadness feels overwhelming and constant, and is accompanied by other symptoms or disruptions in daily functioning. Depression may be short-term or long-standing, and may be the result of recent or profound loss.

  • Anxiety. Anxiety can manifest in a variety of ways and can disrupt many areas of life including sleeping, working, eating, and socializing. Anxiety symptoms can include generalized anxiety, phobias, panic attacks, obsessions and/or compulsions.

  • Trauma and healing from traumatic experiences. This includes the many ways people have been impacted by overwhelming experiences. Therapy may explore how you dealt with trauma(s) in the past and/or your patterned ways of managing stress to help understand current difficulties in your life.

  • Gay, lesbian, and bisexual issues.  You may wish to explore identity issues, relationship concerns, and/or family conflict. As well, while there is now legalized same-sex marriage across the country, issues of homophobia, heterosexism, and sexual prejudice can still impact individuals and relationships, and it may be helpful to explore these factors.

  • Veterans. Integrating one’s military experience with civilian life can pose challenges. I have worked with veterans who have been involved in war and combat as well as veterans with non-combat related military issues.

  • Relational concerns and conflict. If you are experiencing difficulties in a particular relationship, it can be helpful to meet either individually or as a couple to explore relationship dynamics, patterns of relating, and conflict resolution strategies.

  • Stress management. We all have particular ways of coping with stress and it may be helpful to explore specific stressors in your life and your responses to them.

  • Life transitions. Moving through life transitions, life stages, and/or important changes can be at once thrilling, scary, and overwhelming and it may be useful to explore reactions, expectations, and strategies.
