With over 36 years' experience overall in the human service field, working with and supervising others in working with a variety of diagnoses, the past 21 of which were served in a thriving solo private practice, my experience has led me to some special approaches to therapy. The Transpersonal approach allows me to assist you in finding and living the Authentic Self. The Cognitive approach works to assist you in changing beliefs about self, other and life, which stand in the way of healthy, happy living. Individual personal and interpersonal development and relationship therapy, and supportive therapy for LGBTQ individuals and relationships are special areas of interest. I believe that your needs, your problems, the things that stress you and cause you to despair are unique opportunities to heal your life. The tools for that healing are within you, and therapy can facilitate your awareness of these tools, and help you implement a practice that can change your life.

Whether you are in crisis or just slowly self-developing, the work of therapy can help you become more deeply attuned to your own wisdom, your own discernment, and your own ability to soothe yourself and take care of yourself. In learning these skills you also learn how to more authentically relate to your world. My job as your therapist is to teach you how to become your own therapist. We will use several different tools to facilitate your deeper awareness of your authentic Self, looking at old ineffective patterns and beliefs and going deeper for those that are more true and effective.

Have you reached a point of crisis in your life? I see these as thresholds to understanding both the past and the future. A crisis can be peeled back to find its layers of hope and wisdom, so that we use the crisis as a stepping stone to a greater more fulfilling life. Anxiety, depression, grief, relationship and job difficulties, these are examples of the kind of crises that can lead us to a deeper awareness of the authentic Self.
