People go to therapy for a multitude of reasons and in response to a multitude of problems, but the primary reason is to feel better~~about situations, about relationships and, of course, about themselves. My job as a therapist is to provide a safe environment in which to explore these problems and help my clients discover and experiment with ways of thinking, feeling and behaving that will help them achieve these goals.

If you are ready to find ways to be your truest self, move through your grief, anxiety, trauma or depressive symptoms either long held or recent, I may be a good fit for you. As a former Naprapath, now therapist, my understanding of the connection between the mind and body has proved powerful to clients trying to understand the inner relationship between these two parts of ourselves. I often hear words like, 'stuck,' 'numb,' 'confused,' 'alone,' 'outsider.' Trying to put words to what ones experience is can be daunting at best. Giving voice to experiences is transforming.

I offer you a "place to think," a calm place to explore your concerns, gain new ideas and a larger perspective, and develop a plan for making the changes you want. The goal is for you to leave my office less anxious than when you arrived, to be thinking more clearly, focusing more on what you can do than on what others are doing. As you look at your relationships--family, friends, work--as systems, and understand the patterns and the part you play in them, you begin to seen new options for change.

I am an experienced therapist providing specialist care in the areas of sex therapy, couple/relationship therapy, and trauma treatment, including sex therapy for trauma survivors. I draw from several approaches to therapy, depending on the needs of my clients. But what centrally defines my approach is the relational perspective. I have come to value relationships as integrally important to healing: partner, family, and friend relationships, as well as a good quality therapeutic relationship. My approach is active, direct, and empathic. I understand that coming to therapy is a vulnerable experience, and I will be in it with you.

I teach people how to listen to themselves and what to listen for. Every problem, anxiety, or conflict is calling for a fresh perspective-- a way to see it from a new angle. Symptoms are the signals indicating that we need to take the time to notice, listen, and explore what we "hear." We can understand and connect with the unmet needs to which our symptoms are alerting us rather than merely silencing the the messenger symptom without getting the important message we need.
