Therapy doesn't have to be a mysterious and confusing process. I believe that it should be linked directly to one's personal goals and desire for change. I'll work with you to enhance your self-knowledge, expand your emotional awareness and thinking to provide you new ways of solving problems and enhancing well-being. My style is direct and collaborative and aims to identify patterns of thinking, feeling, acting and relating that reinforce fears and negative attitudes, thereby limiting your ability to pursue your goals. Exploring the underlying forces and dynamics driving those patterns opens up new avenues for growth and change.

I help individuals and couples achieve a greater sense of aliveness and authenticity through a process that promotes insight and self-expression. This allows them to recognize and detach from emotional experiences that have tended to inhibit, enrage, discourage and, ultimately, thwart them in their life pursuits.

Taking the first step to get in and talk to a therapist about concerns that are holding you back or creating challenges is not easy. But it can really make a difference. The issues or concerns you have may be preventing you from moving forward or from having fulfilling relationships, career or a satisfying life. Whether it's communication problems, anger, anxiety, or depression, you can make changes. Using verbal and non-verbal therapeutic techniques, in a safe, accepting environment, you can find new ways to face your concerns, and discover your strengths and resources to flourish and grow.

You try to be a good person and want more from life yet sometimes it feels like you're just going through the motions. You're functioning, but there's always that voice—the one telling you that you’re not good enough, don’t deserve love, peace or happiness, deserved what happened to you, and that this is it in life. Your unresolved “stuff”–the anxiety, self-doubt, trauma–keeps popping up at the most inconvenient time and causing you trouble. Relationships are hard. You can’t really relax. Anger eats at you. You’re tired of feeling “stuck” and uneasy in your own mind and body. What you really want is to finally feel at peace.

I enjoy working with people from all walks of life. I'm open, empathic, authentic, interested and interactive.

I have a warm, collaborative, relational and empowering style. At times we look at what holds you back, and at times we look at the evolving being who is struggling to emerge. Both polarities have something to offer when properly accessed and integrated. Since wounding frequently happens in relationship, healing may best be facilitated in relationship with someone who is accepting all of who you are. Trauma requires a safe and inviting space to move into, and needs delicate handling. I help couples find a way to communicate that makes it safer for both to come forward vulnerably.
