Therapy done right builds on personal connection, finds unrecognized freedoms, and orients it all with purpose, values and place. My therapeutic stance integrates connection, freedom and purpose to enhance your wellbeing with openness, balance, warmth, intelligence and wit. My practice cultivates resilience not dependence, vitality not victim-trap ideologies that are currently fashionable. I can help you acknowledge and overcome difficulties, reckon realistically with limits, and untangle other matters of the heart. Some pain is a part of life, but you needn’t suffer or manage it all alone.
I'm well-versed in therapy skills hard-won from higher education, together with common-sense (e.g. values, sanctity, family) and the lessons of life experience. Selecting a therapist requires courage. I help look for strengths, acknowledge weaknesses, and facilitate trust and acceptance to enhance your capacities for love and work.
Call to seek my help. Video appts only. Adults and Parent Guidance. Extensive experience with adults, children of all ages & families. Horsemanship-integrated psychotherapy is a plus. Teaching and supervising therapists since 2010. I live with my wife and two daughters in the Bay Area after having lived in diverse US regions as well as abroad.
