"I am a Jungian-oriented psychotherapist with an extensive background in the arts. As such, I avoid diagnostic labels and preconceptions, approaching each client as a unique individual and tailoring my work to fit his or her evolving needs in developing a better relationship with both inner and outer worlds. Although my preference is to work in depth with long-term clients, I am also comfortable with those seeking short-term work on specific issues--especially couples (straight, gay, or lesbian), with whom I do both premarital and separation counseling, and parent-child and sibling dyads."

"If you are seeking therapy there may be some good reasons that I would be a good fit for you. You may have tried many different methods of healing but find that there are places that you have not been able to tend to alone. These may be places that are very overt or hidden from view due to cultural, social or economic issues. They may be longstanding or new, but they are causing confusion and suffering at this time. These issues may involve gender or sexuality, complex grief, or cumulative trauma. This is a perfect time to seek help."

"When we find ourselves struggling with the kind of emotional pain that our usual strategies and supports can't relieve, good therapy is a lifeline. Like massage for physical injuries, psychotherapy effectively relieves chronic emotional pain, clears out unwanted emotional scar tissue, and creates flexibility, strength and new possibilities for positive motion in our lives. Whether you are worried about your own mental health, or the distress of someone you love, or are simply curious about how therapy might help, call/email me to schedule an initial conversation to talk about what kind of treatment is best for you."

"My clients are drawn to therapy mostly around issues of anxiety or depression that stem from feeling that life is without purpose, or that they aren't living their calling - especially during times of grief, heartache, and death. I often work with clients who have terminal illness diagnoses, and are searching out the meaning of their life as they work towards dying. Many things can arise at the end of our lives - unresolved relationship issues, spiritual dilemmas, a sudden urgency and passion for figuring out "why we're here"...figuring these things out together and integrating them before dying is what I offer.

"I work with individuals looking to fundamentally change the way they relate to themselves, to break free from the burden of impossible standards and feelings of inadequacy. Often this involves investigation into the ways we relate to ourselves and to the ways we can punish or sabotage ourselves. Working together, we can find new ways to cope that allow you to live a more vital and authentic life, less encumbered by anxiety and stress. I believe that this kind of work represents no less than liberation from the doubts and fears that stop you from living your own best life."
