"The Third Chapter (age 50-80) is a rich time for reworking our lives to assure we live authentically and with passion, while there's still time. This season is for laying to rest our traumas, regrets and failures, fantasies of what our life was going to be, and looking ourselves squarely in the eye with unbridled truth about who we really are, and who we might yet become. While we may have more time, finances, and wisdom, this chapter can also find us stuck, as anxiety takes the foreground and creativity seems to be a luxury we cannot afford. ."

"Like it or not, we usually experience pain before we are willing to grow. But pain can be destructive, particularly if we do not know how to learn from our suffering. The challenge for each of us is how to suffer our own pain in a way that produces beneficial change. The "secret of life" turns out to be the everyday journeyman work of digesting emotional experiences and turning them into actual emotional nutrition that develops our inner life and makes living easier in the future. Sometimes we need help with this process, which is why there are therapists!"

The process is direct, supportive, and interactive. You are here because what has already been tried is not working. I am here to help you identify alternatives in a safe atmosphere. When choosing a therapist you want to feel comfortable with the person and also consider experience. When I am not at my practice, I teach others on how to be therapists.
