"We all have difficulties in living. Problems of self esteem often underlie these difficulties. Resulting depression and anxiety, compulsive behaviors such as overeating, overspending, alcohol abuse and unhappy, frustrating relationship choices, can be changed. My style of working has developed over many years of practice and is interactive. Clients would most likely describe me as warm, and responsive. While serious in my work I have a good sense of humor; which I believe is essential for a productive, happy life."

"I offer a unique and effective approach working with your psyche-body-soul through somatic and spiritually based inquiry. We start with where ever you are and what ever your particular issues or concerns are. All you need is curiosity and a desire to know yourself in a real way. Our work together is experiential which allows you to holistically understand and deepen your connection with your most precious inner self. Things naturally unfold and your perspective of yourself and who you are and your concerns are transformed in this process. It truly becomes an adventure of discovery. You are held in a compassionate and heartfelt way which allows your psychological body tension armor and defenses to relax enough so your inquiry explorations can deepen. You come to know yourself in an authentic way. I incorporate the great heart wisdom of the Spiritual Dimension of the Enneagram which potentiates our work together. You need not know anything about the enneagram to benefit from our work together. Give me a call and we can see if this approach and if I am the right person for your journey. I work with individuals, couples and coming soon an Enneagram Inquiry Group. "

"Therapy is a process of becoming empowered and skilled in implementing changes in our experience. My role as therapist is to facilitate your empowerment and support you in designing and implementing desired change. I offer clear listening, empathetic reflection and guidance in imaginative and creative response. The therapy process requires caring, commitment and hard work. I will meet you in each of these areas of responsibility; I am able to carry additional responsibility at those times when you are less able and require restoration."

"I have thirty plus years of experience in child and lifespan psychology. Children grow when provided with an atmospere of acceptance and warmth within the safety of a structured environment. My primary role as a therapist is in creating these conditions. Secondly, I act as a facilitator in your conversation with yourself, your partner, or your child - helping you to discover a deeper appreciation of the problem. Understanding the systems (family of origin, community and culture) within which these issues arise is important. We will collaborate on exploring possible solutions as you discover the courage to make gradual, empowering changes."

"Many people grow up in families that display a wide range of behavior and thought patterns that cause people distress. Mental health issues, illness, economic instability and substance abuse are often present. Children learn to take care of others, deny their own feelings, and try to control in an effort to survive and cope with an unstable home life."

"I have specialized training and experience in couples therapy. If you are stuck in a painfully destructive relationship pattern, I can help you. I have worked with couples for over 27 years. EFT, Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples, is by far the most effective way to work with relationship problems. EFT is one of the only empirically validated couples therapy approaches, and has been shown to out-perform all other modalities in follow-up studies, tracking couples after therapy has ended. EFT has dramatically increased my ability to help couples transform painful relationship patterns into deeply fulfilling and enduring bonds."
