Deep listening to your story is central to my practice. I work with people who are suffering, particularly those who have had feelings or experiences of “otherness.” I have had several careers and lived in various places, so I am sensitive to the rich diversity of lived experience. I have worked with various types of people, including adolescents, college students, and adults, from university counseling centers to criminal justice facilities, individually, in couples, and in groups. My approach to therapy is integrative, with elements of psychodynamic, humanistic, and existential orientations.

During initial sessions I gather information as to the nature of the problem and the outcome desired. Together we assess strengths, and then obstacles to be overcome, whether environmental, relational, emotional or physical. It can take a single session or a number of sessions. At this point I recommend specific therapeutic modalities to be used to support client(s) to attain their goals. For some, the process is slow and delicate, for others vigorous and brief, a place to come back to when life's crises inevitably occur. For all - an experience in discovering a larger life of Resilience and Reconnection.

We are born into mystery and we are on a spiritual quest to know ourselves more fully, to discover our life's purpose and to find our personal power. My therapeutic approach involves accompanying my clients on a journey of self-discovery and self-mastery. For, as Carlos Castaneda wrote, "We either make ourselves miserable or we make ourselves strong...the amount of work is the same." Ultimately, my goal is to be a mirror that reflects back to you your own innate goodness, strength and wisdom. We repeat what we don't repair. So, my job is to be a witness to your process of awakening the healer that's already present within you.

I view therapy as an invitation to bring awareness to the here and now. For many of us, we press forward, through, and over difficult feelings when they arise in our daily lives. Often they show up as unwanted thoughts or images. They not only fill us with dread, but we will go to great lengths to avoid them. On the other hand, what if moving toward our feelings actually reduces the influence they have over us, allowing us to attend to the very things we value, thereby creating meaning and purpose in our lives.
