I mainly work with clients who are "psychologically minded" and interested in examining long-standing personality traits that may get in the way of having fulfilling personal and professional lives. Often my clients are therapists or aspiring therapists. I am an Emeritus Professor and a "Research Psychoanalyst." That means I have a PhD in Philosophy and have also trained in counseling and acquired a PsyD in Psychoanalysis. What I offer draws from this mix of backgrounds. I most like working with individuals (and couples and groups) who want to be challenged on both an intellectual and an emotional level.

Therapy. That can be a pretty scary idea. For some there's still a stigma attached to pursuing professional counseling...you have to be crazy, right? Believe it or not, the healthiest, most courageous people I know are in counseling. Why? People in counseling recognize that there is a problem, are willing to work hard to find a solution, and aren't afraid to get their hands dirty in the process. I can't promise you that therapy is easy but I can promise I'll get my hands dirty right along with you. Make the investment in yourself today.

While life can bring good experiences and satisfactions, it also can be difficult, even overwhelming. Unexpected and unintended experiences can cause pain, discouragement, uncertainty, anxiety, and more. These struggles can be personal, in your relationships, or in circumstances beyond your control, causing you to feel frustrated, confused about what's happening and what to do....maybe even trapped and desperate. I love working with individuals, couples and families to discover what is going wrong, and how to deal with it so you can move into the better life you need and want. This is my goal and desire for you.

My clients come from many walks of life but have one thing in common - they would like to improve their overall quality of life. Perhaps the wounds from their past or stressors from their present are adversely impacting their lives. My goal is to work collaboratively with my clients to improve their current level of functioning. My practice includes working with adults, college students, adolescents, couples, and families. I also co-lead groups with my husband who is also a psychotherapist, and I work with master's level and doctorate interns who are completing their therapy/supervison hours for licensing.
