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.

Many of us seek therapy when we are unhappy in our relationships or when we feel lonely. Sometimes, it is the relationship that we have with ourselves that concerns us. Therapy provides an opportunity for us to understand ourselves within the context of a relationship designed for self exploration. Sometimes individual therapy is appropriate. Other times, therapy is more helpful when our partners or other family members join us.

In my practice, I work with men and women, individuals and couples. I focus largely on the dynamics and the contexts in which people live, both in their current relationships and in the ones that helped to shape them. I help people through the transitions of their lives, through loss and "stuck" places, past the obstacles to achieving meaning in life and intimacy in relationships. I work in a cognitive/directive and very open personal style.

When we choose not to face our challenges, it can negatively impact our true being.
