About

I have been a practicing psychotherapist/counselor for over 30 years and have worked with the whole spectrum of life stressors and emotional troubles. I see people with anger and anxiety problems as well as grief and relationship issues. I establish an empathic connection with my clients which provides a safe basis from which we can explore your needs and determine what may be standing in the way of your on going growth and well being. I have studied somatic psychotherapy, gestalt therapy,cognitive behavioral therapy and deep feeling psychotherapy.
Since the quality of our relationship is such an important factor in determining a positive outcome, please feel free to call me for a personal talk. In dialogue we can find the best way to support you in achieving your goals..
I have studied psychotherapy for my adult life and have never hesitated to do my own psychotherapeutic work. I use no techniques or practices I have not experienced and benefitted from myself.
