I look forward to meeting each new client and getting to know him or her. I know with our busy lives we all have a number of stressors and conflicts. Sometime our usual ways of dealing with these no longer work. My goal is to help you find effective ways to deal with these stressors, so that you can complete therapy feeling happier, more in charge of your life, and can reach that place deep inside where each of us is our very best self.

Crises and painful emotions can be the beginning of a journey toward transformation and wisdom. If you are looking for a deeper and more connected sense of yourself, and fulfillment in life, then you may be ready for a commitment to the therapeutic process. I believe my empathic presence - the capacity to hear, see and feel a situation from the other person's vantage point- is central to the healing process. Within such a safe relationship the patient can develop an open attitude toward the unconscious; exploration of the meaning and purpose of one's life can unfold.

Throughout our lives, we encounter a variety of natural transitions, some of which challenge our ability to cope. Death, divorce, life threatening illness, career change, marriage, becoming a parent, spiritual or existential crisis...to name a few. In an attempt to adjust, many of us experience emotional distress. I would be honored to work with you to provide support. I enjoy working with people of all ages including young children and teens. Through talk therapy, expressive arts, sand tray, and engaged play, my goal is to make each client feel prioritized, heard, cared about, valued, and nurtured throughout their process.

SEX is fun! Sex is a blessings! Sex is a gift to a couple committed to each other! However, when the desire for sex drives a person to self-destructive behaviors, the fun is long gone. However, there is HOPE! I offer help to both the addict and the partner: for the addict....sobriety and then recovery, for the partner.....healing and recovery. Knowing that sobriety is but the FIRST step to lifetime recovery, I offer the tools and support needed for success. Addiction, that of your own or your spouse or your child or your parent, damages all areas of your life. I am equipped to help you survive the destruction. Recovery is POSSIBLE!

Never have life challenges been as great as now for you and your future. For we must improve relations with each other and our planet or perish. As a man you may feel frustrated in either work or intimate relationships or both. Yet the personal skills needed for work are usually opposite from those for intimacy. There seems to be no way to the success you yearn for. As a woman you may cope with anxiety or depression and succeed at friendship. Yet coupling has meant losing track of yourself, and good men seem to be hard to find. The way forward involves increasing our emotional skills and love for ourselves, others and our planet.

I believe the most important element for positive change is the relationship between the therapist and client. If the client can truly trust their therapist, he or she can allow themselves to explore, heal, and integrate all aspects of themselves. This leads to a feeling of wholeness and relief from anxiety, depression, low self esteem, and other issues. I use intuition and compassion, in addition to my training and education. I care about my clients, and feel honored to witness their efforts to grow and change. Buddhist philosophy informs my overall orientation towards the enduring resilience of the human spirit.
