""Well, it's always something!" How often have we all heard and said this phrase. Yet it's true. Life is always presenting us with"somethings" - loss, problems, distress, despair - obstacles to our happiness and well-being, and to our relationships. It is a very wise decision to reach out for help. Yet I know it is also stressful to try to decide on a therapist. Let me share with you who I am and my approach as a therapist. I unfailingly believe it is possible for people to make positive changes in their lives and to heal past and present trauma and pain."

"I work with individuals, couples, and families who want to address long-term problems and patterns. It is through this kind of personal exploration that a deeper understanding can be attained and the sense-of-self can be strengthened. A psychodynamic approach can go below the surface to address problems, improve personal relationships, and stop self-destructive behavior. So often, past experiences can interfere with our present lives and we find ourselves suffering through repeated ongoing pain."

"A lot of the issues that people face stem from repeating destructive patterns that lead to the same undesired outcomes. Such behavioral patterns were developed not by choice, but by necessity and are habits of life saving responses such as: chase, avoid, anger, anxiety, etc. The problem is that these responses create only an illusion of safety. In treatment we will identify your patterns and how to change them.
