For over 30 years, I have specialized in working with individuals and couples who are looking for a deep, transformative experience in therapy that resolves core issues and not just symptoms. I help my clients heal life long attachment wounds and change deep seated negative patterns, facilitating a greater capacity for intimacy, joy, inner peace, and confidence. I draw upon several approaches including EMDR for the resolution of past trauma and addictions, psychodynamic (childhood issues), Couples Systems, Jungian dream analysis, meditative practices, somatic focused therapy, and techniques from the latest neuroscience research.

My style is warm, compassionate, and interactive. I won't just sit and listen. I will give you helpful, direct and honest feedback, be your guide through difficult emotional issues, help you listen to your own innate wisdom, and teach you skills that you can use throughout your life.

What makes my work unique compared to many other therapists is that I do not take a strictly cognitive approach. Just talking about issues and understanding them better, although helpful, does not necessarily change them. I will help you resolve the core, subconscious patterns and causes of your problems.
