"As life unfolds, it often presents challenges that require us to adjust and adapt. Good therapy facilitates a clearer understanding of the obstacles and how to overcome them to create the life we want. My approach is empathic and intellectually curious and collaborative, always keeping your goals in mind. My clients describe me as warm, active, nonjudgmental, direct, and a gifted listener. I am also highly attuned to children and teens, and have developed strong relationships with even the most "difficult to reach" kids. I've watched relationships with family members, peers, and teachers shift and become less problematic."

"I believe that the most effective form of therapy is one where the therapist and the client can have a collaborative and authentic relationship. I strive to create a therapeutic environment that facilitates perceiving, thinking, sensing, feeling, expressing, connecting, and relating. My treatment approach is quite integrative but not without focus. I believe that a unique therapy experience should be created for each person."

"The therapy relationship offers the opportunity to better understand yourself and how you relate to others. The focus is solely on you, which means that unlike casual discussions with friends, you don't have the distraction of trying to manage someone else's difficulties as well as your own. This doesn't, however, mean that I'm a silent participant. I listen closely to you and share my observations and insights for both of us to consider. I believe that when we feel deeply understood and connected to someone else, change is possible."

This clinical focus stems from both a personal medical challenge since age 12 and research on treating women with breast cancer and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Yet Kaiser research (1998) finding 70% of primary care visits are driven by mental, emotional and relational issues highlights how mind and body are interwoven for each of us. This interplay provides leverage for preventive medicine, for responding to illness and for maximizing peak performance."
