About

I have been a Marriage and Family therapist for over 25 years. I enjoy working with and helping couples and individuals who are having difficulty finding joy and happiness in their lives. I believe strongly that we all are trying to build a healthier life, but sometimes need a little help understanding the things that get in our way. We get in a rut, repeating the same destructive behaviors and feel hopeless about ever getting what we really want and need. I can help you identify negative patterns, understand where they come from and change them into effective, self affirming strategies.
Most often pain stems from unresolved relationship issues in our early family dynamics. Psychoanalytic psychotherapy offers a uniquely rich opportunity for growth, self discovery and change. My patients frequently report feeling more grounded as they develop a greater, more positive understanding of themselves,
I understand that change is not easy. My experience gives me a deep appreciation for the continuing importance of relationships at all stages of our lives and I offer a safe place to explore your needs and fears and will provide support when you finally risk having the life you want. I invite you to give me a call to see if we might be a good fit.
