To others, it seems like you have it all. But underneath lives a different story. Despite your outward success, you feel haunted sometimes by feelings of failure, conflict, self-doubt. At certain moments, a gnawing sense overcomes you, telling you: Something is not right. You've made changes but somehow still end up in the same unsatisfying patterns, repeating the same unhelpful behaviors -- feeling more and more alone. You want to understand your patterns and your past so you can create a different future. You want to learn to feel differently about yourself and how you relate with others. You want to find a different way.

Through many years of teaching and practicing Brief Psychotherapy, I have learned the value of a highly active, focused and interactive approach-- both for long term and brief psychotherapy. Whether the patient is an individual or a couple, I view my task as helping to define appropriate goals and keeping the therapy on track. While the purpose of the therapeutic journey is mutually decided and the patient is an active partner in evaluating the route, I particularly direct the journey when it turns to the past. While history is invariably interesting, therapeutic efficiency requires exploring only what's potentially most useful.

I am the developer of the Transformative Couple Therapy (formerly called AEDP for Couples). I teach and supervise this method nationally and internationally. This method is distinct from other approaches in that we do not seek to find what is wrong with the relationship, but rather we uncover the felt experience of love that has become buried over time. This method is unique in that the couple members speak directly to each other from the first moments of the first session and with the skillful structure the therapist provides, they discover how to create experience of loving and being loved that they have been missing.

Choosing a therapist can be a confusing process. Research has shown that the relationship between the therapist and client is the most important indicator of a successful outcome, more so than the therapist's type of professional degree or theoretical orientation. You need a therapist who will create a supportive atmosphere, but also one in which you will be gently challenged to think about your problems in a new and more adaptive manner. I will offer a compassionate and intelligent response to your concerns.
