People I Can Help
I work with individual adults, specializing in problems with anxiety, stress, and the effects of trauma. These issues may appear in your life as feelings of depression, social anxiety, phobias, or relationship conflicts. In addition, I am a couples therapist, working with two people in a family who are having difficulties with one another.
I also work with people who have difficulty with narcissism in themselves or others, or personality disorders.
In my experience, the struggles adults have with unhappiness, troubling symptoms, and difficulties with work and relationships develop from complex experiences with others early in life.
Lasting change involves a full understanding of the causes of the difficulties and the development of new, healthier experiences in psychotherapy. Each individual is unique, and therapy must address each person’s life uniquely.
