I became a psychotherapist because I wanted to be "that someone" I always wished I had in my life. Someone who believes in you when you lose hope in yourself, and get stuck in what seems like perpetual darkness. I feel that my job is to help shed the first stream of light into the darkness, so together, we can see the bigger picture. Collaboratively, we'll explore your hopes, dreams, and goals. I will help you navigate, and walk by your side, until you reach them, or you are confident enough to do it alone.

"The function of a psychotherapist is to become obsolete as soon as possible." That quote is from my own psychotherapist and mentor, years ago, and it's the model and motto of my practice. There are, of course, exceptions, including couples or individuals who return for a "tune up" once in a while and others who call me in as co-strategist when some new turbulence hits. Another exception is my work with schizophrenic spectrum patients, who need a long-term connection with consensus reality from wherever they happen to be stuck "on the other side of the mirror".

My practice orientation with clients integrates the power of our mind-body-spirit connection toward healing wounded areas within ourselves. I specifically help individuals that have been victims of narcissistic abuse in their early childhood relationships or current adult relationships heal this very real trauma to their minds and bodies. Focus is toward strengthening adaptive, rational and positive thoughts and behaviors instead of living from fear and trauma. Narcissism undermines growth, strength, health and productive ways of living. Meditation, creative visualization/affirmation skills, breathing exercises, role-playing, voice-dialogue and gestalt methods are employed for moving stagnant energy in our bodies. .

My expertise lies in working with men transitioning into, or out of, relationships. Moving from single life into relationship with another is a daunting task. How do I maintain my own identity, my own authenticity, and still keep my partner happy? What are good boundaries? How, and when, do I say no? Equally difficult is the shift from partnership into single life. Who am I now? How do I keep a friendship with my ex (or not!) while moving into the dating scene? I've had great success helping my clients succeed and thrive during either of these challenging times.

People who enter therapy are the bravest people in the world. The only difference between you and everyone else is that they are choosing to suffer in silence (or not so much silence), and you have decided that you deserve better. You want more. You may have some obstacles in your way, but with a little help there will be better road up ahead. My job is to walk with you, sometimes offering tools that I have picked up along the way, sometimes just listening, always being present.
