If you yearn for a more fulfilling relationship, greater self-esteem, healing from the past, or a more enjoyable and purposeful life, it means you’re paying attention. There’s always room for growth. Perhaps you aspire to improve one aspect of your life or several areas. Maybe you feel discouraged and lost because you’ve worked hard to make things better and haven’t seen a difference, or you’re newly aware of the need for a shift in life and this is your first try; either is okay. Successful change doesn’t have to start with self-confidence or a plan. It just requires the willingness to reach out and not take the journey alone.
I have extensive training and and experience helping people build better relationships and heal from trauma and loss. I flexibly integrate approaches tailored to each individual and couple, and my style is authentic, compassionate, collaborative, and grounded in science. I teach a course on close relationships and wrote two books on disconnection and denial.
The step toward therapy is a healthy and courageous one, and you deserve to work with a therapist who is the right match for you. Please feel free to call so we can explore whether I'd be a good fit. I value working with individuals and couples of diverse races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, genders, and ages, and I look forward to talking with you.
