Whether this is your first time in therapy or you are returning, you may find yourself feeling anxious, or embarrassed. Know that this is completely to be expected. You may be feeling vulnerable and unsure if I will understand you or be able to help. I just want to reassure you that I've sat on that side of the couch on many occasions and do my best to remember what it feels like to begin therapy.

Most people coming to see me are suffering from states of anxiety, depression, and or, a sense of unworthiness. Typically these emotions are interfering with important relationships, work and a general sense of wellbeing. There may be trauma in your background that adds to these challenges. We will work with these troubling feelings at a pace that suits your particular needs.

I have written extensively about the emotional challenges creative people face. A special interest of mine is working with writers, artists and anyone engaged in creative projects. Being a writer helps me to identify with and understand the particular emotional challenges artists encounter. I look forward to helping you work through some of the insecurities that interfere with making art and teach you to connect with that deep creative center within.
