I enable clients to access the wisdom of their emotions to enhance their relationships and lives. Happy relationships and solid self-esteem are the foundations of psychological and emotional well-being, while disharmony, worries, and unhappiness signal that we need to experience new ways to effectively express feelings and enact aspirations in our lives. I strive to provide an inviting and nonjudgmental therapeutic context to empower clients to find satisfying ways to address concerns. My integrative approach draws upon Western science and Eastern wisdom, including Buddhist approaches to well-being.

In 30+ years of practice, I have seen individuals, couples, and families dealing with a wide variety of concerns. I try to provide my clients with an accepting, supportive environment in which they can openly express themselves. I view therapy as a collaborative endeavor. In line with this, I see myself as actively engaging clients in a process of better understanding themselves and figuring out ways of making the changes they seek. I have extensive experience in psychodynamic psychotherapy, couple counseling, and family systems work, and see clients in short term solution-focused treatment as well as longer term intensive therapy.

I specialize in working with young and middle-aged adults with longstanding difficulties, including chronic depression and anxiety, feelings of emptiness, loneliness, and impulsivity. The people I work with struggle in their interpersonal relationships and many have histories of trauma. Their challenges did not begin overnight and will not end overnight.
