"Many people, like those I usually work with, feel that, because of experiences in their past, they are not able to live as fully and happily as they wish. They want to be free of the effects of those experiences. Each person sets their own pace, but newer, effective approaches enable most people to reach their therapeutic goals more quickly than they could with older methods. These newer methods require out of session practice and record-keeping, so that we might better understand the events that cause difficulties and develop new ways to respond. The therapist is your guide, mentor, coach, and knowledgeable ally."

"I view psychotherapy as a courageous choice to live one's life from a more conscious, less programmed place. With an attitude of non-judgment and compassion, I use a varied approach to facilitate this process of inquiry and growth. Whether working with couples or individuals my goals include: relieving symptoms, supporting the development of SELF-ESTEEM, improving the ability to RELATE to others, and guiding the accessing of one's own wisdom and capacity to heal."

"Why do therapy? Why embark on a relationship with someone you don't know, to talk about difficulties or challenges in your life? Sometimes, when we tell family or friends how we are feeling, they react personally or try to explain away our experiences rather than make room for them. I believe that a relationship with a therapist is one in which significant change can take place. The neutral environment of therapy provides space to explore our experiences without worrying about angering, hurting, or upsetting someone else."
