I believe that we each have divine destinies, but too often there are obstacles such as shame and feelings of unworthiness that hinder us from seeing our purpose and possibilities. I would like to partner with you to help you regain or enhance a sense of wholeness, peace, and joy. Without these things the world can seem a scary and overwhelming place.

My intent is to help you alleviate emotional distress as you access inner strength, identify options for change and implement a course of action. Though many of my clients are individuals I have a special interest in couple and family work.

My clients usually begin therapy when old patterns of feeling and behaving increasingly interfere with their life goals. Whether it's in their work, their personal life or their parenting they feel stuck. Old patterns produce frustrating results and nothing new seems to work. Therapy offers the opportunity to explore and understand what is restricting their growth and offers new ways to solve old problems.

Treatment is about promoting change, and this change must come from within. I ask a great deal from clients when I ask them to change; this journey requires both the client and myself to work collaboratively and deeply. While my therapeutic approach is greatly influenced by psychoanalysis and relational therapy, I also employ aspects of Dialectical Behavior Therapy, specifically, the principle of radical genuineness to build rapport with my clients. I aim to provide my clients the space to explore underlying feelings, thought processes and behaviors, and the support needed to engage with the therapy process.

For many years, I have been helping my clients to lead happier and more fulfilling lives. One of my main psychotherapy approaches is cognitive-behavioral therapy, a well-established, efficient and effective form of psychotherapy. It directly targets the patient's thinking, and behavior, patterns that are producing psychological problems, and teaches the patient to change those patterns. In marital and family therapy, I help the parties to communicate better with one another and to reach agreements acceptable to all. If the children have behavior problems, I often help the parents to become more effective disciplinarians.

COUNSELING HELPS PUT LIFE INTO PERSPECTIVE When life throws an unexpected curve, common reactions are often difficult to understand. Moods can change on a dime, thoughts at times can seem irrational, nerves jangled. These reactions are natural yet can be overwhelming and tough to manage. For some, this adjustment can have an adverse impact on relationships, job performance, or motivation to carry out a daily routine. It often helps to process these experiences with someone, especially a professional, who will genuinely listen and validate what’s going on.
