"I am inspired witnessing the courage with which people face their fears. I work to earn a person's trust, so that they are safe to risk vulnerability. I love to help people discover or unblock the sensing of their life direction, and the motivation to pursue it. In my many years of practice, some clients get there quickly, and others need to delve more deeply. Depression, anxiety, PTSD, addictions, bad relationship patterns, inhibitions in work or love, all change best when we bring compassion to their roots in the past."

"Do you find yourself anxious or depressed because you are not achieving your goals? Are you "stuck" in an unsatisfying relationship? Are you repeating behaviors that are self-defeating? I have many years experience in helping people identify their true needs and change their behaviors so that they can feel in greater control of their life. It is my belief that in a compassionate and supportive setting, painful and difficult emotions can be understood and integrated into oneself, providing a greater sense of well-being."

"I have more than 20 years experience working with individuals and couples in short term and in longer term in depth psychotherapy. My clients struggle with depression, anxiety, loneliness, relationship challenges, questions around life direction, life purpose, personal identity. Often they report feeling "stuck," frustrated in their creative expression or in their ability to change or move forward in their lives. I try to look at each individual's strengths (ask how we can build upon those), and also look at where a person is getting in his or her own way."

"I'm a "seasoned" psychologist in practice for 40 years. I enjoy working with people from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds and have always preferred having a "general practice" which allows addressing a wide range of personal concerns. While each individual requires a unique approach; the transformative power of therapy is rooted in the trusting relationship that evolves between you & I. It's the alliance between us which helps you become the person you aspire to be. The work is serious but also allows for having a bit of fun while seeking the most gratifying life to foster a sense of fulfilling purpose for yourself. "

Why you have a nagging feeling that perhaps you're wasting time and not living your life in a more deep and fulfilling manner. You may think you're “not good enough,” or “if only this would have/not have happened," life would be different. The activities you do feel banal, going to work/school is dreadful, relationships and family are difficult, and the values and beliefs that once held you have lost their ground. You feel lonely, depressed, anxious, and perhaps substance use is worsening. You’re wondering about doing therapy."
