The alliance we build as client and therapist is a necessary and very important part of the therapeutic process. I carefully assess each individuals or couples strengths, history of relationships, sense of self, developmental status, learning styles, symptoms and readiness to change. I believe that what you find helpful to talk about in each session is most important. You and I will develop a treatment plan based upon these factors, your experience, my professional experience, research findings and what you would like to accomplish in therapy. I have a general practice and also have areas of specialty.

I work with guys in hi-tech, mostly software engineers and managers, who struggle with some sort of anxiety &/or depression, often brought on by things like workplace stress, relationship problems, or big life transitions (like having a baby). My typical client leads an engaged life of achievement and focus, and he usually feels on top of things. But then life has come along and hit him with something his well-developed intellect can't quite handle. The result is that he feels stalled and filled with self-doubt - something he is unaccustomed to and deeply uncomfortable with.

There are many reasons why people come into psychotherapy. These reasons can include depression, anxiety, loneliness, past traumas, loss, emptiness, psychological reactions to medical illness and pain as well as the desire to learn and grow personally and interpersonally. In my experience one's pains and worries decrease during the therapeutic process, and life feels richer, livelier and more manageable. Exploring together in a safe place where there is time to experience one's self in greater depth moves the process forward toward healing.
