Change—both expected and wanted or the complete opposite—affects us all, and we cope with it in varying ways. Traumatic events are never planned and often require new strategies to effectively navigate a world that may no longer feel as safe as it once had. The impact of loss, anticipated or not, deeply affects individuals, families and couples. My clinical practice is built on an investment in encouraging one’s own narrative expression of the human experience, identifying skills and strategies for living one’s best life, and providing a secure and caring place in which to grow and love change.

Trying to understand our choices, what motivates them and seeing clearly the patterns of our life is the start of choosing a new direction for ourselves or our relationships.

Many people come to me wondering why they're unhappy, anxious, or unable to find fulfillment. The problem may seem obvious but a solution impossible. The same painful experiences repeat themselves, but why? And how to change them? If we meet, I will try to understand you as fully as I can and to help you come to grips with your problems. In doing so, you may discover, as sometimes happens, that there are ways to experience yourself and others that are genuinely different from what you've known thus far.

Psychotherapy should be used to enhance the life you already live. Most of the time, we do well in our daily routines. All of us have ...let's say..our weak links. We excel in our careers, but we feel lonely, or we want to better communicate with our partner but don't know where to start. Everyone has little areas that confound us. Sometimes we need a private place to begin to find a different path.

Beyond knowing a therapist has degrees and a license a list of credentials do not matter much in your choosing. Therapy is more art than science. Nor may you be impressed with a long series of my professional accomplishments. What you want to know is: Can I stop the pain? Can I make your depression and anxiety go away? Can I fix your career or relationship problem? The answer is: No, I cannot. But together we can. If you will bring the motivation and some willingness to trust I will bring knowledge and the ability to shift things. And perhaps, with the help of an unseen grace, together we can heal the hurt and find a solution.
