"Clients come to me when they are dissatisfied with their lives and/or overwhelmed by a situation or stressor. I view therapy as a collaborative endeavor and work together with you to develop a treatment which incorporates your strengths, needs, and life's experiences. I also respect your wish to work on a specific area of concern short-term and/or to address a variety of complex issues over time. During the treatment, my clients report that they feel safe, supported, and challenged by me and that their lives are greatly enriched by the experience (see Healthgrades reviews by clients)."

"Pain is an unavoidable and a necessary part of life. But suffering -- especially prolonged, "punishing" suffering -- is not. So many people seeking therapy suffer from anxiety, depression, difficulties in relationships, and self-sabotaging behaviors. We use defenses to avoid our emotions. Ironically emotions aren't the SOURCE of pain but in fact are there to HELP us HEAL from the painful losses, hurts and challenges of life. You don't come to therapy to talk about your week. You come for relief from your suffering, for a chance to work through and find meaning in your pain and, just as with a broken bone, heal stronger and better! "

"Often the circumstances that bring a person into therapy feel monumental and shameful. Other times the reasons for seeking therapy are unclear or hard to identify. Regardless of magnitude, life's struggles matter. They are real, and, because we are human, they are complicated. The relationship my patient and I build is the most important aspect determining the effectiveness of the therapy we do. When it feels restorative, shared, and caring, the relationship provides a uniquely valuable context in which we can take on struggles and uncertainties together, while we learn about the patient's individual needs, values, and difficulties."

"My specialty is helping individuals to work to remove challenges to achieving satisfaction in their lives. Many times we find ourselves stuck in patterns that are self-defeating but seem difficult to change. These may cause us problems in school and work, as well as in our peer and family relationships, and interfere with the enjoyment of pleasurable activities. These patterns may be due to our early experiences within our families, or as a result of challenges faced in adolescence and adulthood. No matter your age or phase of life, therapy can help."

Sometimes severe psychological distress and suffering is located within the couple or family, rather than solely within a given person as it may appear at times.
