Times of change and uncertainty can leave us feeling overwhelmed and disconnected from ourselves and others. Anxiety, depression and stress reactions can become common experiences. Psychotherapy offers opportunities to increase your understanding of why and how this happens as well as what to do about it. I work within an interpersonal and analytic perspective while incorporating the well known benefits of mindulness and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. This combination creates curiosity, self-discovery and change. My style is warm, collaborative and flexible. You will find me actively involved rather than silent or distant.

My method is interactive and interpersonal and is founded on establishing an emotional contact with the person that comes to me to help them understand their problems for counsel and guidance. I emphasize the importance of the emotional contact because in my experience life's conflicts and problems are intimately connected with feelings and emotions flowing from person to person. The most important feelings and emotions are those related to being able to love and be loved in return. Love writ large encompasses caring, friendship, an interest in the welfare of the other person. It also contains the varieties of sexual feelings and emotions. Everyone is engaged both in the (1) outward realm of actions upon things and (2) interpersonal actions, or interactions, among persons and communications of the inward realm of feelings, emotions, imaginings, memories, thoughts, and intentions. The inward states either persist as an impressions, conscious or unconscious, or, they become motives of an expression, the passage from a potentiality to the actuality of action. Psychotherapy addresses both the inward and the outward realms in a person’s life. This is how psychotherapy works.
