Real Help for Real People

  • Are you suffering from chronic emotional struggles? You’ve tried therapy and medications, but you’re still not getting the results you want?
  • Do you keep repeating the same relationship patterns that leave you unfulfilled? Maybe you’ve tried following friends’ advice, working with therapists and relationship coaches, and used every dating app with less-than-ideal results?
  • Do you feel like you’re living below your potential in your career? Perhaps you’ve tried executive coaching, but that didn’t help? Are interpersonal patterns or mental health symptoms impacting your success at work? Successful, but unable to enjoy it?
  • Are you a student having trouble getting to class, completing assignments, or finishing your degree? Do you think emotional factors like procrastination, perfectionism, anxiety, or depression might be getting in your way?

In my psychotherapy practice I offer real help for real people facing real life challenges like these. I believe I can offer you the professional care you need so you can get the results you want.

How I Help

I offer a unique skill set and style that can help you recognize and overcome the automatic, unintentional, unconscious thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that keep you in repetitive, self-defeating patterns that perpetuate your symptoms and life struggles. Our conversations can help shed light on factors in your life, ones that you can’t yet see, that are keeping you hung up. As you come to better understand the forces driving your suffering, you can find new solutions, and the energy you need to practice them.

How Intensive Therapy is Different

An intensive therapy process like the one I aim to offer can do more than just provide short-term band-aids for your difficulties. In an intensive and thoroughgoing therapy our efforts go towards changing the roots of the problem so you can make real changes in a sustainable way.
