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.

Everyone has the potential to change, grow and heal. I believe that psychotherapy can be a powerful tool toward those ends. Effective therapy requires an accepting and authentic therapist-client relationship, and I strive to create an environment filled with warmth, trust and understanding. I will encourage you to deepen your understanding of your experiences and emotional life. As most people enter therapy during a time of heightened discomfort, I also strive to quickly identify areas of concern, develop an approach that feels comfortable, and help you find greater fulfillment in your life.

I believe therapy is a collaborative relationship that can lead to finding new and positive ways of relating to people and situations in your life. In therapy, we look at the distinctive ways in which you relate to me and others, whether or not you are aware of them, and then we analyze them so you can consciously begin to do something different. I want to make psychotherapy affordable, so I accept clients on a sliding scale basis, from $100 to $150. I would be happy to hear from you.
