These days there are times when we need someone to talk to. For the past forty years I have embraced individuals who have experienced shame, anxiety, social anxiety, depression and stress. Individuals and families served have had questions and concerns related to caring for family members with special needs and adoptions. My approach is optimistic, empathic and enhances attachments and relationships. My wish is to lessen stress and provide advocacy. Whether your journey is individual, infant-child related or a family dream; I will work to support you and your loved ones in a warm and engaging therapeutic relationship.

I specialize in adults and couples (all sexual orientations; all types of relationships). My goal for you is not only to reap the benefits of feeling better because your depression has lifted or your anxiety has quelled, but to thrive, in every way.

It is my belief that everyone navigates his or her way through their family of origin and early environment by developing strategies and coping techniques, essentially doing the best one can in the circumstances. Later, these ways of handling relationships and stressors can become limiting. Members of couples and families can also develop entrenched ways of relating that become partially based on assumptions. Frustration, anxiety, disappointment and resentment can result. Psychotherapy enables you to understand the evolution of these patterns and develop more choices in how you respond and relate to others.

Successful psychotherapy is a partnership based on trust. People do change, becoming more truly themselves when they find the right, trained therapist and are able to talk freely. I listen to you with respect and you develop greater self awareness. This enables you to communicate more clearly, to reflect on difficult issues, and to let go of outmoded behaviors that do not further your deeper needs.

Most of us hit seasons where we feel stuck, empty, or deeply anxious. My job is to help clients get unstuck and to find a ground of meaning, motivation, and a new vision for healthy relationships. For some clients, therapy is brief and very solution-focused (5-12 sessions), though my preference is to work with clients interested in deeper change, which often requires more time. For many, we explore more deeply their personality structure, the early roots of their relational styles, and the spiritual habits of the heart that often make the difference between thriving and merely surviving. Let's get to work!
