Can you use your mind to reduce your suffering, rather than increase it? Or to increase meaning and depth in your life? You can, but most people need a little help with this. Sometimes a sympathetic family member or wise friend can help a great deal. There are great books out there. But there are times when a knowledgeable, compassionate professional is a better choice. Perhaps your internal life feels out of control, or you're feeling stuck, repeating ineffective patterns of relating to yourself and others. I work with people to help them understand themselves and their situation, manage stress better, and make positive changes happen.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist practicing therapy in Charlottesville, Virginia. I work with adults 18+ experiencing a variety of problems including anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorders, trauma reactions, relationship issues, ADD/ADHD, and life transitions.
