"I enjoy being a psychotherapist because it provides me the opportunity to help people resolve the issues that are causing them distress. I work with adults, children, and families, and understand that each person is a unique individual with his or her unique life circumstances, history, and social and cultural context. A goal of our work together will be to help you identify and understand the conflicts that may be causing you difficulty, and to help you overcome them. Or perhaps negative thinking patterns cause you to experience sadness, loneliness, hopelessness, fear, or other unwanted emotions."

"Many individuals and couples approach me for therapy feeling they've hit a road block in their lives and are confused and frustrated in their attempts to grow beyond it. They are often uncertain - both about their capacity to change and about whether therapy can help. Couples may be hopeful or discouraged about transforming their repeated patterns of conflict or distance, but know that significant changes are needed if their relationship is to regain a sense of joy and strength. The art of therapy involves reaching beyond solving a particular problem and exploring the opportunites for growth embedded within it."

"I believe, no matter how long a problem or pattern has existed, there is hope for change. Patterns in relationships can be transformed, and so can long-standing perceptions of yourself and your life. When change feels daunting, this is the moment a non-judgmental outside perspective can be helpful. I believe that therapy is a place where you can bring your entire self: your hopes, dreams, fears, traumas, pain, joy and shame. I work with you to make that space warm, compassionate, dynamic, and directed."

We look together at the barriers to success that interfere with productivity and peace of mind. Because I co-authored the book, "Procrastination: Why You Do It; What To Do About It NOW," (and because it took me six years to complete my dissertation!)

"I do a healing form called Guided Self Healing to support people in letting go of counterproductive issues and patterns. Most issues and illnesses are symptoms of something that was too much to handle at the time. Whenever there is something we can't integrate, there is an associated discomfort that is born in that moment. I guide people to drop into the discomfort and go to where it originated. There we have the most leverage for healing and transforming something that was once too much to handle. By processing unresolved experiences you can be free of the symptoms they cause."
