One of the most important elements necessary for deep, self-reflective therapy is the presence of a respectful, emotionally engaged, and caring environment. Successful therapy hinges on the quality of the relationship. Over my 25 year career of working with both individuals and couples, my approach has been to engage people on several levels: addressing the current situation, early life experiences, conscious and unconscious parts of the psyche, as well as the underlying dynamics that interfere with progress toward healing and wholeness. I approach each individual based on the unique and specific circumstances of his or her life.

Psychotherapy is a collaborative effort, requiring a sustained effort on the part of both therapist and client; each one makes necessary and different contributions to the process. I have worked extensively with people struggling with their relationship to themselves and to others. My style is relational, warm, thoughtful yet pragmatic.

My clients come from varied backgrounds with regard to age, class, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and health status. One's sense of self always emerges within the context of socio-economic-cultural and psychological environments; the diversity of these influences are central to how I understand people’s experience.
