About

Having been in practice as a psychologist for more than 30 years, I am convinced that change and growth take place within the safety and warmth of a truly understanding, and collaborative relationship. It has been a privilege to do this work and I am grateful for the opportunity to bear witness and contribute to my patients' lives. Our journeys are often complicated and demanding with places along the way that can be overwhelming, painful and confusing. Awareness and willingness to seek help when you are at an impasse is perhaps the most important step in the process of psychotherapy.
I listen carefully, deeply and with a strong sense of humor to help my patients identify their struggles, their strengths and their goals.Patterns of thoughts, feelings and behavior, often from the past, can interfere significantly with the ability to see and understand what's actually happening in the present.
Developing self compassion is key to our work. If we can learn to be kind to ourselves, to create the inner space we need in order to breathe deeply and see clearly, we can truly be free to make choices that will enhance our lives and enable us to flourish.
