Depressed & anxious adults who are self-critical and self-shaming and couples who bicker and get entangled easily are the populations I serve. Childhood roots of these patterns are explored, while clients learn to replace criticism and shame with kindness. Clients learn to "sit still" with emotions, rather than avoiding uncomfortable feelings through compulsive, "busy", or destructive behaviors. This process assists clients in reducing depression and anxiety, while increasing self-confidence, assertiveness, creativity, and tolerance for intimacy. Couples learn to communicate feelings and needs without using attacking words, and learn how to dis-entangle from eachother after "buttons" have been pushed.

I am an active participant in the therapy process. I also provide an open and safe space for exploring deeper feelings, with an emphasis on emotional attunement. Feelings and behaviors are understood within an insight-oriented context, using contemporary psychoanalysis and neuroscience as models for understanding the human mind.

In addition to being a Clinical Psychologist, I have an MA in Theology, contributing to a real sensitivity to the spiritual issues that individuals of any religion may bring into the therapy setting. This interest includes working with clients who have been injured through their experiences within organized religion.
