In our contemporary society it is easy to be content and even glad for medications that soothe symptoms, but healing comes from working through our underlying inner conflicts in a textured human relationship in which we can feel what we truly feel and become who we truly are. I believe distressful symptoms, whether depression, anxiety, anger, hurt, a sense of meaninglessness, a sense of emptiness, addictions, or behavior problems are signs. They are signs that it is time to grow our mindfulness of our underlying needs, feelings, and thereby gain choices for living more contently within our communities and families.

Therapy that aims at lasting change involves a considerable investment of time and money. So, I offer a free initial consultation period for individuals and parents making this decision to evaluate and determine if I can be of help for you, or your teenager.

Whether for individual adults, children or adolescents, psychodynamic therapy and psychodynamic play therapy are unique forms of psychotherapy. We will aim to understand the meaning of emotional reactions, thoughts, behaviors, etc., to alleviate your distress and expand you (or your child's) capacity for work, love, and creativity.
