Announcement icon I use phone or video appointments until it is safe to resume face-to-face sessions. After that I will also continue tele-therapy if desired.
Welcome. I am a pastorally trained psychotherapist who works with people who are struggling with painful and difficult issues, events, people, and feelings-without quite getting to where they want to be. The work I do and like best is joining you in understanding the story of that struggle and moving it forward. The main personal values I bring to that work and offer to you are kindness, respect, and enthusiasm-with a premium on honesty, openness and curiosity from both of us. I view my work with clients and their stories as a powerful healing partnership.
Using a variety of approaches I aim to help people understand why they get stuck in relational and behavioral patterns and then learn how they can keep from repeating them. The tools for that include traditional psychoanalytic interpretation, family systems dynamics, and humanistic therapy around people's deepest spiritual values.
There is special pain in people's experiences of disappointment, loss, and dehumanization from sources they hoped and believed would be trustworthy-religion, family, school, work, and personal relationships. Helping people young or old transcend the grief and agony of such experience is an especially important theme of my practice.
