When life is difficult the resulting symptoms usually include depression, anxiety, fear, anger and/or withdrawal. Rather than avoiding these states I have helped hundreds of clients turn them into resources, significantly improving their lives --usually after only a few sessions. I have 25+ years experience working with couples, individuals, families and groups, and have supervised 20+ new therapists. I specialize with couples, helping them to move beyond arguing, tension, anger, resentment and distancing into happy couples. My clients turn their problems into workable solutions.

Do you find yourself constantly on the go, rushing from one thing to the next? Are you often feeling tired, wishing for more time in the day or days in the week so you can catch-up and take a break? Life can be very busy and overwhelming at times, with work to tend to, errands to run, people to see, a house to clean and dinner to cook, there seems to always be something that needs taking care of. But what about you? While you're so busy taking care of the "to-do's" in your life, who is busy taking care of you? Living this way can be VERY exhausting, and leave you questioning, "what do I need and want out of life?"

Mind-Body Health: I assist people in developing three fundamental human "systems" of Mind, Body, and Spirit/Energy. These three interactive Systems work at the same time, like three cogs in a machine, and are somewhat unique to each person according to their outlook on life and the context they find themselves in. For example the Fear around COVID has brought forth additional stressors to impact these Systems by activating the sympathetic nervous system (the fight/flight/freeze stress response). Together we will develop practical life "experiments" to better activate these Systems for psychological flexibility (e.g., meditation)

I believe: Relationships and desire to connect are the core of human experience. Your relationship, regardless of how severe your problems are, has the potential to become a safe and supportive base and comforting haven.
