"We are living in very stressful times that challenge us to find meaning. Often the very painful issues that bring people to therapy -- anxiety and/or depression, difficulty with relationships, life-cycle transitions, trauma, illness, aging, lack of purpose and belonging -- present a wonderful opportunity for exploration, growth, and development. I especially enjoy working with individuals in transition, whether in early adulthood, mid-life, or the "third chapter" of older age and have a special place in my heart for those who struggle with feelings of not fitting in, living non-traditional lives or in non-traditional relationships."

"Because each person is unique, there is no set formula for helping someone find solutions and achieve goals. I focus on you and your particular circumstance without judgement or preconception. The process is direct, supportive, and interactive. You are here because what has already been tried is not working. I am here to help you identify alternatives in a safe atmosphere. When choosing a therapist you want to feel comfortable with the person and also consider experience. When I am not at my practice, I teach others on how to be therapists. I myself am a seasoned psychotherapist of over two decades."

Perhaps this is due to a difficult upbringing, perhaps due to trauma and loss, or may be due to external stressors such as marginalization and oppression. I help clients find their voice, re-discover self-trust, uncover inner wisdom, and cultivate strength and balance.
