I am a member of the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis and a 2013 graduate of their Couples Training Program.
As a psychotherapist, I have more than 30 years experience providing clients a safe, non-judgmental environment where issues can be explored and difficult feelings can be identified and expressed. I specialize in working with individuals and couples whose difficulties in early relationships have created corresponding difficulties in the present, including feeling locked into negative patterns of relating, depression, anxiety, and loneliness. I provide my clients the opportunity to learn new more effective ways of communicating and relating that in turn can lead to positive changes in their lives.

I've been working with stressed out, overworked, anxious and depressed Washingtonians for over 25 years and call me crazy but I still love the work. It's such a privilege to work with an amazing diversity of smart interesting people! While I have been trained in a variety of different therapeutic modalities I've learned the most from my clients. About half of my caseload is working with couples primarily using the Imago relationship therapy approach. The rest of my client load is working with individual adults and relationship groups for men. Men really flourish in these relationship groups.

I help individual adults to feel and function better and find far more effective ways to address life's difficulties. I also help couples to restore intimacy (or to part amicably, if need be) by teaching effective conflict resolution skills. The fact is, most people feel ambivalent about starting therapy or couples counseling . By now, you might feel fairly uncomfortable and frustrated, realizing that everyone's friendly advice, the self-help books and web articles, and all of your existing coping mechanisms have not worked for you. You want relief and results now.

Do you feel stressed or overwhelmed from all the pressure to perform from family, friends, your child, partner , society, and/or work? Perhaps you’re feeling stuck, need advice about a problem, or a motivational push to reconnect with your whole self, and finally accomplish that goal you have been holding off?

I have 20 years of experience working with individuals, couples , and polycules. My book, Great Sex: Mapping Your Desire, is based on a sexual liberation workshop I've offered on campuses and at LGBTQ+ rights conferences in the US and around the world. My clients are usually in therapy but need specialized work on gender, sexuality, identity, and intimacy. Most of us believe there is something 'wrong' with our sexuality -- what we want/don't want, how we connect or fail to connect, what we know or don't know about our desire. In our work together, we discover the power of our sex his/her/theystories and plot a path to pleasure.

I apply the above approach to individual, couples , and group psychotherapy, where the focus is on using what transpires in each relationship to foster greater interpersonal learning and self-awareness, as well as identify the many obstacles we put in the way of our growth and enjoyment of life.
Typically individuals come to psychotherapy for relief of emotional and psychological pain, which may take the form of depression, anxiety, self-defeating behavior, and/or unfulfilled relationships or goals, to name a few. Many can identify some past trauma, or perhaps some mistreatment that seems somehow connected. For others the reasons are more elusive, like a general feeling of unhappiness, perhaps with oneself or with others.I strive to help you verbalize your thoughts and feelings about what happens between us in our emerging relationship as a way of understanding your relationships in general.

I also offer career counseling services. Above all, I value our therapeutic relationship and your culture. I take time and care in getting to know what's important to you.
