I embrace an integrative model that focuses on your needs, working with you collaboratively as we uncover your path to healing, balance, and aliveness. Having struggled with the challenge of many life transitions -- endings and beginnings, sometimes imposed, sometimes chosen -- I have a particular interest in helping you with yours. I am an older therapist engaged in my second career. For much of my adult life, I was a humanities professor, which I see as informing my present vocation. You can always expect from me compassion, warmth, and openness.
With individuals, I work with your life story to transform the present, embracing both change and self-acceptance. With couples, I focus on fostering intimacy, whatever the issues, helping each of you to find your voice and feel heard by your partner.
In addition to my practice with individuals and couples, I also see couples together with my husband, Dan Wile, founder of Collaborative Couple Therapy. (See www.dan@danwile.com). Twice a year, in the Spring and the Fall, we offer a weekend Couples Workshop for five couples in our home.
