About

I believe our most troubling attitudes and behavior are meant to protect us from real emotional threats or to help us achieve certain experiences that are vital to our growth. I help clients understand their experiences in the world in terms of these important functions. In dialogue with me clients come to recognize how their most important relationships have shaped the way they think, feel, and act in both desirable and undesirable ways. I strive to help clients discern their authentic needs, desires, and values so they can assert them with conviction in their daily lives.
In the treatment of children and adolescents I do my best to have an immediate, positive impact on children's symptoms and to make the improvement long-lasting for the family as well as the child. Often, I enlist parents as therapeutic partners in helping their children recover and thrive.
I enjoy the work of psychotherapy and I am dedicated to it. I am especially effective treating entrenched, complex emotional problems. I strive to understand the fundamental causes of clients' problems and to resist the temptation to embrace partial or temporary solutions.
