In addition to my clinical practice, I specialize in high conflict divorce mediation.
I believe compassionate therapy should take place in an atmosphere which is personal, professional, and confidential and for 30 years I have worked with a variety of individuals, couples, and families. If you are reading this it probably means that things are difficult now and you may be struggling. I help with this by enhancing your awareness and esteem through a combination of insight and acceptance. I believe that therapy enriches every aspect of our personal and professional lives. My work with couples focuses upon building intimacy in the relationship by providing tools for communicating, understanding, and working together.

I have extensive experience working with survivors of trauma, Addictions are often an unwelcomed side-effect of trauma, and I can work compassionately when they co-occur. I understand the unique challenges that developmental age plays re: traumatic events, death and loss. I take a gentle yet proactive approach to treating trauma. I know the difficulty of talking about these most personal and often horrifying events. I have compassion and respect for survivors of trauma. My approach to treating trauma is reflective of this. I also offer Divorce Mediation services when marriages fail due to these issues.

I also specialize in collaborative divorce coaching and co-parenting mediation for couples going through separation and divorce.
Seeking Change? I want to welcome you to what might be one of the most important steps in your life. People come to therapy with a problem to which they cannot find a solution. Often it is how the problem is being defined that does not allow a solution. It is then the task of the therapist to help you redefine the problem so you can arrive at workable solutions. Successful therapy helps you move forward with what we can call a new and better "normal".

You want harmony but you experience divorce or breakup, self-doubts, anxiety, anger, lack of confidence, loss.
Do you sometimes ask yourself: I feel angry, disappointed, or depressed. What can I do? I tried everything, nothing works in the long term. Why are my relationships so unfulfilling? During sessions, you are guided to discover the parts of your Self that are in conflict. They have conflicting goals, perspectives, and beliefs. Those "parts" often pull you in opposite directions - "I want to eat, but I also want to lose weight" for example. Then you criticize yourself for not being more responsible, productive, etc... Get to understand why they pull you in opposite directions and how to negotiate with them.

In the process of answering these questions, a divorce therapist helps you work towards acceptance and forgiveness.
