"Many people, like those I usually work with, feel that, because of experiences in their past, they are not able to live as fully and happily as they wish. They want to be free of the effects of those experiences. Each person sets their own pace, but newer, effective approaches enable most people to reach their therapeutic goals more quickly than they could with older methods. These newer methods require out of session practice and record-keeping, so that we might better understand the events that cause difficulties and develop new ways to respond. The therapist is your guide, mentor, coach, and knowledgeable ally."

"Life is too short and too precious to suffer needlessly, and therapeutic self-discovery should be joyful at least some of the time. Learning to recognize, communicate, accept,and manage our emotions leads to success and satisfaction in love, health, work, play, and all parts of life. There is no greater satisfaction than learning to be the full, authentic, robust version of yourself in the world. To help you get there, I offer thorough assessment, interactive therapeutic approach, empathy, humor, and flexible technique. Your choice-- come individually, or with your spouse or family. I especially enjoy helping couples communicate better."

"A satisfactory relationship to one's self is the most significant element in finding a way through life's challenges. Sometimes this pathway feels chaotic, confused, conflicted, or just not strong enough. Sometimes life experiences overwhelm our capacities to contain and reflect on their meaning for us in a way that keeps us from our potential as persons, as partners, or as an employee/job holder. Therapy offers an opportunity to listen to yourself in an uniquely individual, finely-tuned, non-judgmental way. Fears, sadnesses, and blocked places may all find they have something important to reveal to us when explored in a therapeutic relationship."
