I am sincerely interested in joining you on your life journey, accompanying you as you focus on your unique strengths and continually emerging interests. Allowing yourself to give yourself attention in this way is sure to help you to regain your balance and to connect with people in your work and personal life with more satisfaction and pleasure .

I will listen. Together we will decide on your unique focus and goals. I believe that your personal history and experiences with people throughout your life set up your expectations. I expect that in therapy we I will continue to write a very interesting novel, the novel of your life.

Before practicing psychotherapy for several decades, I had a multifaceted life. I came to the U. S. as an immigrant from Europe at the age of 10. I taught social and cultural history, and I lived in Europe and in West Africa. This experience helps me to appreciate complex lives.
