These days, we're all huddling under COVID's shadow of uncertainty. You may be feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, and less tolerant than 'before'. You didn't used to feel so disorganized, disoriented, and discouraged in pre-virus days. Perhaps some symptom you'd forgotten about or pushed aside feels newly offensive. I am a psychoanalytic therapist and my ideal client is ready, curious, persistent, possibly angry, sad, and frightened, but willing to wonder with me about the mind's mysteries and its capacities to tilt, stymie, support, inspire, and surprise you. Is the unconscious friend or foe? Might now be a time to investigate?

What would it feel like to have less distress and more hope in your life? You may be feeling anxious. Worried. Fearful. Confused. Overwhelmed. Perhaps you are trying to make sense of a troubled relationship or grieving the loss of someone (or something) significant in your life. Maybe some problematic behavior has left you thinking things are spinning out of control.

My clients are usually seeking my end-of-life services where I provide healing touch work &/or forgiveness work, emotional support, help with legacy projects, or simply creating sacred, comfortable space at the end of life. Sometimes they are the family or loved ones of the dying who want my care & to be educated about end-of-life comfort & to have someone present to sit vigil & assist in as peaceful a transition as possible. Often clients are interested in deepening the connection with Life itself & whatever they call the creator. My hypnotherapy sessions help to develop & strengthen that vital connection for peace & meaning.

I believe we all are born with the capacity to live full and rewarding lives. In life's many challenges we sometimes can get to a place where we feel overwhelmed or "stuck". Counseling can help get you back on track with facing those challenges and creating the life you want. I can provide a unique safe space to explore your difficult feelings and experiences. That space has the power to be tremendously healing--and within it, I can help you discover new ways of relating to your thoughts, your feelings and the world around you.

My approach to Mental Health Counseling is to view the client as expert in their own life. I do not play the role of expert in my client's lives. I do, however act as a guide, advocate, educator, and support person. What I will do is attempt to see your issues from your perspective and your view of the world. I work within the framework of Person-Centered Therapy, which focuses on the client being the expert, Existential Therapy, which focuses on behavior and looks at how the client thinks, feels, and behaves and the impact they have on others.

For over 30 years I've been helping folks to have better relationships with themselves and others. I'm guided by the belief that most of the time we have our own answers, but sometimes we may need help uncovering or trusting our own judgment. Depending on your needs, we may: 1. work psychodynamically (explore your history and its impact on current life), 2. work cognitive- behaviorally (explore how distorted beliefs affect your feelings & behavior) or, 3. work to resolve abuse by weaving back and forth between the "here & now" and the past.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist working with adults in individual therapy through a relational and psychodynamic approach. These modalities hold that the past informs the present, often setting the template for unconscious patterns of thought, behavior, and relating to others that impact our current relationships, as well as our ability to be productive and fulfilled. Developing deeper understanding about the nature of our problems within the context of an empathic, collaborative therapeutic relationship can lead to increased intellectual and emotional flexibility, healthier relationships, and richer, more satisfying lives.
