The key to emotional health and happiness is nurturing the authentic self, the source of one's primary needs and feelings. When we neglect this essential task, our ability to love and work is compromised. Depression, anxiety, and compulsive behaviors are often signs of alienation from the self. In my work, I integrate psychodynamic therapy, mindfulness, and experiential techniques to help each client's real self emerge and develop. In this way, therapy can serve as a catalyst for personal transformation. It can help you overcome adversity and create a productive, satisfying life, in alignment with your deepest values.

I'm curious about people: how our unique histories have shaped us, how we relate to each other & what motivates our behavior in relationships. I specialize in processing relationships with couples & individuals struggling with codependency, communication, anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem & identity. We often get stuck in repetitive behavioral/thinking patterns that block us from living the lives we yearn for. We may feel misunderstood or disconnected in our relationships. We may avoid intimacy because we don’t want to get hurt again. We may have a harsh inner critic & lack self-love. Do you experience this in your life?

I look forward to meeting with individuals, couples, and families who are interested in personal growth and change. During the different stages of our life, our relationships, and the family life cycle, we can get stuck in certain places. This is often due to how we live out familiar patterns of thinking, feeling, behaving or relating with others. I find fulfillment in helping people move through these stuck points by bringing about clarity on core issues and exploring possible alternatives for change. I'm best suited to treat relationship problems, depression, father wounds, men with sexual addiction, and grief/loss issues.

Trying to resolve issues in our life can be difficult and serious work but usually worth all the effort and time. These changes may come from sustained effort, learning from past failure, exploring detours, walking in faith, fostering patience to allow change to happen to us, addressing chemical imbalances, and many other factors. Many, perhaps most times in our lives, we can make these changes through our own efforts or help from our friends or family. Sometimes we may need help from professional guidance to help make sense of or add to all of these efforts.

This defines my view of being a therapist: "One of the greatest privileges of the human being is to become a midwife to the birth of the soul of another person. This is what therapy is about: helping people retrieve what has been lost to them, wakening and bringing home their fundamental wholesomeness” (from Plato's Symposium). John O’Donohue continues: “Therapists are like poets: they draw on the power of words in the profoundly creative work of bringing people fully alive to themselves, awakening in them the human capacity for divine imagination that ‘dreams our completion’.”

What matters to you? Being curious makes a significant difference when you are thinking of making changes because now you are interested in yourself - in what you think and feel and want- and want to become. Are relationships your core concern? - wondering what is working and what is not, what is missing, and what is disappointing?Losses or fear of loss makes us anxious, ashamed, often traumatized by our own feelings.
