Are you hoping someone else will change so that you can feel okay? Are you interacting with someone who is confusing, withdrawn, angry, has a mood/ behavioral disorder, or is emotionally unavailable? Do you have trouble asserting yourself or setting boundaries? Do you "over-function" with others? Do you feel stressed, anxious or depressed? I specialize in relationships- how you relate with others but also to yourself. I address total emotional and physical health, collaborating with other providers when appropriate. I have a compassionate, interactive approach to help you focus on changing what you can and coping with what you can't.

I can help you break the patterns that keep you from asserting yourself with others who you fear might disapprove or leave. You can feel less self-blame. See my own website under "Relationship Questions" and "What to Expect" to see how I might be able to help.

I have worked for more than 25 years on relationship and family of origin dynamics and have a warm interactive style, unlike traditional psychotherapy. I have a focus on adult children of dysfunctional families, co-dependency, mood disorders and PTSD/ Complex PTSD. I also work with partners of men with Asperger's Syndrome.
