Have you asked yourself, "Do I have the inner wisdom/strength to get through an unanticipated personal crisis, manage a stressful relationship or change recurring patterns that result in a "bursted bubble?" "Do fears, low self confidence or past traumas block me from achieving the life I "really" want?" "Is my smoking, food or other habit controlling me?" "Am I overwhelmed by physical discomfort, job, family stress or life in general?" I can guide you to your "miracle" destination. Unlike long term traditional talk psychotherapy, my integrated short term solution focused approach will make an IMMEDIATE WORLD of DIFFERENCE.

I work with individuals, couples, and families who want to address long-term problems and patterns. It is through this kind of personal exploration that a deeper understanding can be attained and the sense-of-self can be strengthened. A psychodynamic approach can go below the surface to address problems, improve personal relationships, and stop self-destructive behavior. So often, past experiences can interfere with our present lives and we find ourselves suffering through repeated ongoing pain.

Are you experiencing difficulties at home, work, or in significant relationships with others? Are you looking to find a deeper level of connection and passion in your life? So much of our energy goes into building a happy home, a loving relationhip, a thriving family and a successful career. However, sometimes these successes do not bring us the happiness we want and we are left feeling unfulfilled and vulnerable. I believe therapy is a special opportunity to understand yourself more deeply and make any changes necessary to improve and create the life, work and relationships that you most deeply want.
