People go to therapy for a multitude of reasons and in response to a multitude of problems, but the primary reason is to feel better~~about situations, about relationships and, of course, about themselves. My job as a therapist is to provide a safe environment in which to explore these problems and help my clients discover and experiment with ways of thinking, feeling and behaving that will help them achieve these goals.

Many of us seek therapy when we are unhappy in our relationships or when we feel lonely. Sometimes, it is the relationship that we have with ourselves that concerns us. Therapy provides an opportunity for us to understand ourselves within the context of a relationship designed for self exploration. Sometimes individual therapy is appropriate. Other times, therapy is more helpful when our partners or other family members join us.

In my practice, I work with men and women, individuals and couples. I focus largely on the dynamics and the contexts in which people live, both in their current relationships and in the ones that helped to shape them. I help people through the transitions of their lives, through loss and "stuck" places, past the obstacles to achieving meaning in life and intimacy in relationships. I work in a cognitive/directive and very open personal style.

Empathy and Focusing are my special skills. You can begin to learn Focusing and other valuable skills in our work together. I studied with Dr. Eugene Gendlin at the University of Chicago. Everyone, growing up, learns some feelings are "bad." This produces obstacles to accurate perception. I am skillful at helping you find conflict-resolving passages that could remain hidden to you searching alone. With empathy, I work to create a safe environment in which you can explore feelings that may be difficult to approach on your own.

I work with individuals who are struggling with panic, anxiety, depression, grief, isolation, loss, family and marital relationships. When emotions have taken over, it is crucial to have someone provide an objective perspective. I help you identify the beliefs and behaviors that may be getting in your way. Many times these are distorted, outdated beliefs or simply our bodies natural response to ongoing relational/environmental stressors.
