Living a life where struggling is a regular experience is difficult to change, because no one wants to feel worse. Therapy helps by talking through what's happened, what feels wrong and what ideas you have about it, all which may be conscious or unconscious. What's unconscious surfaces naturally through our dialogue together. Most people enter therapy afraid, because they don't know where to start or are overwhelmed because so much has happened. With over 25 years of experience, I can help you navigate this terrain to relieve pain, clarify thoughts and beliefs, and to improve feelings of well-being.

I created The Relationship Model of Addiction, a new paradigm for understanding addiction and recovery. Addiction is viewed as a relationship (not a disease), with a means of relief of pain from unmet emotional needs. Recovery is seen as a three-stage transitional journey out of unhealthy relationships and into healthy ones: Stage I – Breaking-up; Stage II – Developing the Relationship with Self; Stage III – Creating Emotionally Nourishing Relationships.The over-arching theme in all of the work I do is to empower the transformation of relationships by developing the relationship with Self.

It is my belief that everyone navigates his or her way through their family of origin and early environment by developing strategies and coping techniques, essentially doing the best one can in the circumstances. Later, these ways of handling relationships and stressors can become limiting. Members of couples and families can also develop entrenched ways of relating that become partially based on assumptions. Frustration, anxiety, disappointment and resentment can result. Psychotherapy enables you to understand the evolution of these patterns and develop more choices in how you respond and relate to others.
