Beyond knowing a therapist has degrees and a license a list of credentials do not matter much in your choosing. Therapy is more art than science. Nor may you be impressed with a long series of my professional accomplishments. What you want to know is: Can I stop the pain? Can I make your depression and anxiety go away? Can I fix your career or relationship problem? The answer is: No, I cannot. But together we can. If you will bring the motivation and some willingness to trust I will bring knowledge and the ability to shift things. And perhaps, with the help of an unseen grace, together we can heal the hurt and find a solution.

One of my primary approaches is to address the beliefs that each person has internalized during his or her life. These beliefs direct our choices. Erroneous beliefs about self, others, and the world at large put limits on us and hold us back from healthy relations and personal empowerment.

Change—both expected and wanted or the complete opposite—affects us all, and we cope with it in varying ways. Traumatic events are never planned and often require new strategies to effectively navigate a world that may no longer feel as safe as it once had. The impact of loss, anticipated or not, deeply affects individuals, families and couples. My clinical practice is built on an investment in encouraging one’s own narrative expression of the human experience, identifying skills and strategies for living one’s best life, and providing a secure and caring place in which to grow and love change.
