I see therapy as an opportunity for you to explore the meaning of your life experiences, and how those experiences affect your current situation. I focus first on establishing a comfortable therapeutic relationship where you can feel safe and supported as you investigate new ways of being. I want to help you explore and learn from your history and feelings: I typically ask questions, note patterns, encourage you to interpret events, and reflect your strengths and successes. In the process, you will gain insight, and be able to make deliberate choices that lead to positive changes in your life.

As we explore your life experiences, we will work together to identify previously unrecognized strengths, including your resilience and accomplishments. As you learn to recognize your skills and power, anxiety and depression often lessen, fears diminish, and you can move forward in your life with increased wisdom, confidence, and hope.

I have extensive experience working with writers, artists, musicians, and performers. I usually work well with people who are in a period of transition in their lives, including career changes, illness, and shifts in relationships and roles. I conduct therapeutic groups, and have expertise in medical issues, spirituality, and grief.
