About

Are you struggling with anxiety, depression, stress, anger, trauma or relationship issues? I have over 30 years of experience working with people who feel burdened by these issues. I believe that previous disappointments and injuries can paralyze us, causing us to be frozen in the past. By understanding and unlocking these earlier difficulties, I have witnessed people opening themselves up to more rewarding life experiences and relationships.
I believe that therapy is a safe place to understand old pains. While there is no magic cure, I am very committed to creating an environment of warmth and compassion that allows space for new and healthier life choices.
I work very much in the present, and pay close attention to whatever thoughts and feelings are emerging at any given time. I believe that the truth is what we are striving to know - whether it is joyful, painful or frightening, it is real!
