I am committed to helping individuals and couples gain insight and make behavioral changes to enhance their lives. My focus is on relationships with friends, family, romantic partners and/or the workplace as I believe engagement in these areas is an important aspect of living a satisfying and purposeful life. I also work with those struggling with addictions, compulsions, self-destructive behavior (especially eating disorders), and balancing the competing demands of life. My professional strengths are reflected in a nonjudgmental stance and an ability to help people examine themselves and make the changes necessary to live in a more fulfilling life.

Having witnessed and participated in twenty years of clients' progress, I have great confidence in this powerful process. We all want to feel optimistic and enjoy our lives, with minimal stress, doubts, anxiety, depression, and confusion. Most of us have strong and centered parts that were buried or muted as a result of trauma, loss or other painful experiences. Learning to empower these healthy parts helps us manage inevitable difficult thoughts and feelings more calmly and effectively and to enjoy healthy relationships. Depending on individual situations, short term therapy or Skype sessions may be possible.
