I have 20 years of experience working very productively with couples and individuals of diverse backgrounds, age, and sexual orientation. My job is to help you to identify dysfunctional patterns of thought and behavior that contribute to - even perpetuate - the difficulties you are having. Working collaboratively, our focus in therapy is on removing psychological and behavioral obstacles that prevent you from reaching your career-life goals and having better relationships.

My approach is supportive, empathetic and, above all, pragmatic. While understanding the past is essential, change can only occur in the present. I will challenge you to be an active partner in therapy and to work toward ongoing insight, growth, and positive change both in and outside of sessions.

My experience ranges from psychotherapy and assessment of families, adults, and couples to counseling trauma survivors and persons with major illness. Whether you seek to make a major change, overcome a life blow or obstacle, or to break a chronic pattern, I will meet you where you are at.
