Everyone has an innate ability to enjoy a life balanced with love, work and play. When personal issues and uncomfortable feelings block this ability, we need to grow and heal. My calm, gentle nature and use of humor helps people explore and resolve these blocks. Humor is important for relaxing with light-hearted laughter and making shifts in one’s life are intertwined. I’ve helped numerous couples repair broken relationships, heal hurts and resentments, while reestablishing meaningful communication. A sense of safety, relief, and a softening of the heart occurs as each partner feels heard and understood. Blaming stops and problem solving begins.

My expertise includes a wide range of individual clients and concerns. Many appear to be doing very well, yet struggle with inner conflict and emotional pain. My dynamically based interactive approach effectively deals with anxiety and depression, combined-multiple issues like anger, emptiness, cutting, and disruptive relationships, and with normal life-span changes like empty-nest and retirement.

Dynamic means I follow your thoughts, remembrances, and feelings. Interactive means I listen and speak to your healthy-self, the ‘you’ behind the pattern of self-defeating feelings and behaviors. I believe your finding a good client-therapist match, one that fosters exploration and change, is so important that I waive my fee when we only meet once.
