"The most significant predictor of a successful therapy experience is the quality of the relationship between therapist and client. Building a safe, nurturing relationship is where I excel. My style is warm and highly interactive, best suited for clients who prefer a therapist who feels very human, less like the old "medical model." I assist clients to explore their thought patterns and corresponding emotional reactions, and to identify unconscious assumptions they hold about themselves, which inform their behavioral patterns. I also provide practical tools for regulating anxiety, managing depression, and processing grief & loss."

My rich life experience substantially enhances the empathy, relatability, dignity, and understanding desired in a therapist.

"I believe that a good psychotherapy treatment should facilitate a process of self-inquiry, where one discovers, over time, how to become more authentic, both with oneself and with others. I practice deep listening with my patients and hold space while they explore their inner world, thoughts, feelings, fantasies, and visions. I specialize in treating people with mood disorders, distress associated with chronic medical conditions, and substance abuse problems."

"Difficulties and life crises can strain even the strongest. Although we don't always believe it, our distress at bad news, or a failure, a loss, or the threat of one, can be talked about. But how, when it can be so unpleasant? And how do we know where to begin? These, and many other questions, can cause us to delay, ignore, or side-step, difficulties. We may be driven to work harder, trying to find answers and relief, independently.
