"I help individuals and couples achieve a greater sense of aliveness and authenticity through a process that promotes insight and self-expression. This allows them to recognize and detach from emotional experiences that have tended to inhibit, enrage, discourage and, ultimately, thwart them in their life pursuits."

"I view therapy as a collaborative process where we work together to understand the challenges you are facing. My initial goal is to provide empathy and relief, while working in the longer term to help you feel more open and able to access parts of your experience that may be hidden. This can be scary and vitalizing, and I view work with each client as a unique journey where the path to healing unfolds over time. For me, the ultimate goal of therapy is to help you both accept and challenge yourself, and thereby become more fully who you are."

"I use an interactive, supportive approach to help adults, teens, couples, and families work through anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, and self-defeating patterns of behavior. In my work as a developmental psychologist over the past 25 years, I have dedicated my career to understanding and reversing the effects of early adaptive patterns that evolve into difficulties later in life. I enjoy helping people work through these difficulties, some of which can be extremely painful and debilitating. Without such help, this can be an impossible task. Lack of self-acceptance and expectation of rejection are always near the center of the problem."

"Sometimes we experience difficulties that we can't seem to solve on our own. It may be a life transition that creates unexpected challenges, such as graduating, changing jobs, becoming a parent, or losing a loved one. It may be a relationship problem or a difficult situation at work. Or it may be more of an internal struggle, in which we find ourselves feeling anxious, lonely, or stuck. Sometimes we just have a vague sense that something isn't right, that we're not as happy or as fulfilled as we could be."
