About

I believe that times of transition or crisis, though frequently painful and disorienting, offer us powerful opportunities for adaptation and healing. I believe we have a fundamental need for connection, for being truly heard and for feeling effective and valued. Whether you are 35 or 85 or somewhere in between, I offer you a place to safely explore your needs and challenges. My clients describe my style as honest, engaged, compassionate and respectful. From my work in urban and rural settings, within a variety of socio-economic communities, I have developed a profound belief in everyone's capacity for positive change.
My interests and expertise cover several areas: mood disturbance, addictive behaviors, transition and loss, aging, and spiritual questioning. Related issues of identity, relationships, communication and coping skills are also addressed. I use therapy techniques (see Treatment Preferences) that are best suited to your style and the nature of your concerns.
I welcome additional sources of insight and wisdom: literature, music, meditation, poetry, and spiritual traditions. We address ways in which social and environmental changes may be affecting your well-being. We work together to enhance your quality of life, both within yourself and in your relationship to the world.
